Microsoft’s the latest tech giant vying for a spot on your wrist, and with their newly announced Band they might just have earned it. The feature-packed Microsoft Band boasts a built-in GPS, 24-hour heart rate monitor, a 3-axis accelerometer, plus a slew of sensors that measure skin temperature, UV intensity (to kick you into saving your skin with sunscreen), galvanic skin response, and more. Snap one to your wrist to silently gather detailed, objective data day and night, feeding into Microsoft Health to provide you with actionable insights for living healthier, sleeping better, exercising more efficiently, and the like. It’s also cross-platform capable, playing nice with iOS and Android as well as Windows Phones, though the latter will also grant access to Cortana, Microsoft’s Siri-like personal assistant.
