    Just updated on my windows phone. Version 1.3.1209.1, cites "General App fixes and improvements". Anyone have any idea what they are?

    Edit: Also pushed an update to the Band.

    Yes. As you say it also upgraded the Band firmware too.

    No obvious changes to me.

    Same here.
    I have not observed anything new to this point, and the one bug fix I hoped to get (caller info) is not present.

    I have literally stopped what I was doing today to update the Band, so excited am I about a firmware update.

    I love the Band - I think it's a great device with some amazing potential. But that potential is all it is right now.

    Where are the serious updates!!

    Update: oooh, one thing I have noticed is that tapping the icons seems a bit more responsive when you're scrolling through now. Before, I had to scroll, tap (to stop the momentum scrolling) and then tap again to go into an area. It seems to respond more reliably now.

    Mine does now. The first update failed apparently. Restarted the app and it updated to that version too.

    Will be interesting to monitor battery life. That is the type of thing that firmware updates can often improve on an early update. Later ones make that much harder as the big gains are already present.

    I got the update this morning. I did notice the vibration when putting the charger on or off.

    Regarding battery life, mine was draining in less than 24 hours. I should have only changed one variable at a time, but I turned off watch mode and uninstalled Band Sensor Monitor, and switched display brightness from auto to medium (in addition to the firmware update). My battery life appears to be 300% better now.

    I think "Activity History" is new under the hamburger button... unless I've just never noticed it before.

    Correct. It's just that people don't think of "sleep" as an "activity" and don't expect to find it there.

    Past days for other things can be found under the respective areas. For example, if you drill down into the step goal tile, you can see the prior days.

    Is there a way to update my band without using a phone? Currently i am still using pc app. After connecting I did not get an update in band. I am with version 1.1.1933.0 09.

    Wow, guess I never looked at that option before.

    Just glad I ran into a way to see past sleep activities.

    It send it was a fix for a Bluetooth bug. My band would never stay connected to my iPhone 6 I was literally just complaining about it today and then saw there was an update and now it's staying connected.

    Anyone been able to find out definitively what changes were included in this app/firmware update? I find "general fixes and improvements" to be pretty descriptively vague. Not complaining, hey, I'm glad to see things happening! Just curious I guess.

    After updating, my Band now shows caller name when the call comes in. Before, it only showed the number, but oddly, would show the name in the call list after the call. I use my Band with a Lumia Icon krunning WP 8.1 update via dev preview.

    I too noticed the vibration when connecting to the charge cable..

    FYI, if you have the MS Health app installed to an SD card, you might need to cancel the update and move the app to the phone's main storage and then run the update.

    I had to before it would install the update. (8.1/1520 fwiw)

    I think they fixed the Bluetooth integration when your phone is connected to your car. Before the band voice features wouldn't function or after a while the streaming would fail when I was playing music from my phone, now both work fine simultaneously.
