    I am rather positively surprised by my fitness ranking:

    I am 44 and wouldn't call myself a fitness freak. Is this measurement accurate?

    This is new text:

    (a minimum of five new workouts are required for the initial estimate).
    So for May, I'm only at 4 work outs thus far.

    Both of you clearly have defective Bands. I'm 48, run my *** -- OK fine, text-filter -- I mean, backside off (just a bit of hyperbole there), and can barely eke out a 43.4 VO2 max. Something ain't right with this picture and it's on your wrists!

    You have to do at least 5 runs or bike rides since they enabled the feature.
    I suspect you may need to go hard enough to convince it that you've hit your max HR a few times.

    Anyone else notice the comments in the steps area?

    Things like:

    "This is around the greatest distance flown in a wing suit. Excellent work!"

    "This is about the length of the Inde Motorsports Ranch in Wilcox Arizona."


    I think I should take it easy one day to see if it says "The average distance a tree sloth falls when it dies."

    You must be doing way over 10000 steps? Mine says nothing witty that I noticed but I really barely crack 5000 most of the time

    Also on a PC or laptop. I was initially looking on the (web) page but through my phone that's why I was struggling to find it. Soon as I loaded it up on my SP3 I saw it straight away lol

    No, I'm using the "factory" goal of 5000.

    In the Health App: From the main screen, click on the "Steps" tile. Scroll down a little. Between the graph and the steps history, you'll find it.

    In dashboard: On the right "Did you know", just below "Your current fitness level".

    Is there any good reason why they don't use the historic data? Are they recording more information since end of April with each exercise than before or is it just lazy development and lack of number crunching?

    I don't understand why fitness level never updated after first calculation.
    Well, I had some "soft" trainings that calculated a "high" value of 39.4 (which in reality is medium/low). After that calculation I had at lest other 5 trainings, very hard, classified as "Strenuous" but the VO2 max remained always the same... I don't expect it to jump at stars or something like that, but how is it possible that it never changed of a small 0.1?

    For the amount of time that this feature has been available in the Microsoft Health Dashboard, there probably hasn't been enough data to change your rating. I just read a bit about VO2 max and it looks like this would explain why you haven't seen any change in the score yet, depending on the accuracy of your initial results.

    These scores can improve with training and decrease with age, though the degree of trainability also varies very widely: conditioning may double VO2 max in some individuals, and will never improve it in others. In one study, 10% of participants showed no benefit after completing a 20-week conditioning program, although the other 90% of the test subjects all showed substantial improvements in fitness to varying degree.

    Well today (finally) my V02 max showed up on the dashboard! Very high, 40.3. Clearly some room for improvement there. I guess 40 odd years of smoking takes a toll. Would have been interesting to know what it was a year (and 40 pounds) ago when I first quit and started working out!

    I think the issue for me is probably related to a lot of missed 1min/2min recovery heart rate data.

    You may have a point. On a bike ride how do you get this to record. If you have GPS on you have to end your ride to halt the GPS drift. I keep the band on my wrist for ages but still the 2min recovery does not show. If I leave the activity running after I have stopped it never registers as having stopped so will not show the recovery data.

    before you press the stop button, ensure you have a solid heart rate signal then DON'T MOVE lol, cause it seems really easy for it to lose track of the heart rate :)

    Usually for me, I hit stop right after a work out and I'm immediately rolling on the floor trying to recover, chugging water, washing hands and whoops blank 1min/2min heart rates.

    Thanks Anthony. I think the trouble arises with the fact that the bike ride is with GPS so it is very difficult to stop the ride as even the s;lightest movement can cause the GPS to drift, especially indoors.

    Next ride I am going to stop motionless and see if I can get a 2 min reading.

    Indoor cycling, why turn on GPS? I never used BIKE mode but for run mode it asks if you want gps tracking enabled or not.

    When you say GPS drift, you mean it the location is all wrong? That sounds really weird. I did a run around the block once and it hugged the block pretty good! So I'm surprised the bike is pretty nuts considering your arms are swinging when running.

    This is bogus...
    "To get an estimate of your fitness level, a few new run or bike workouts with elevated heart rate are required (a minimum of five new workouts are required for the initial estimate)."

    Only calculates running and biking VOx?

    I workout 5 days/wk and NOTHING.... I only run rarely by exception and stationary bikes doesn't appear to count. Further, I do cross-fit training where the Band setting is on simple workout, since its not running or biking. Anyone who has done cross-fit works know that the heart rate cardio demands are much more significant than just running or biking, unless one is in an all out sprinting mode.

    I guess its people in Seattle only run or bike...

    MS is lame....
