    Hello

    I have been closing following the Microsoft Band and reviews and Im a big fan of Tech in general the "Band" ticks all my boxes, One item I see frequently on reviews is the lack of Online interface after digging around on the MS site I can across the following:

    https account . healthvault. com

    It seems to cover everything and shows quite how much information the band can capture and process... Thoughts!!?

    I hope this shows just how capable a device this "could" be

    Yes, HealthVault is one of the reasons I got excited about the product. Google tried and closed shop. Apple has yet to open theirs and at this point looks like it will be just for iOS users.

    One could say that MS Health and HealthVault are the real product, the Band is just a feeder device. While an interface has been promised, AFAIK, it's not there yet. Hopefully it will come soon. (Like before Apple's device.)

    It is inexplicable how Microsoft could introduce the band and not have it supported through Health Vault on day zero.

    I can think of a number of reasons. Two weeks later, when it was promised on the sales brochure, not so much.

    True, but MS Health promises integration with this graphic found on the MS Health site. At first I thought the Band interfaced to HealthVault directly. Then I learned there was "MS Heath" and it wasn't the same as "MS HealthVault" but is supposed to connect. But as of yet, I haven't seen a connector.

    I can understand that it might not have been ready at launch date - it happens. But why not even any word 2 weeks later?

    Has it been two weeks already? Could swear it was only a week ago I got mine on launch day :)

    I think we should start to see new stuff in about a month.

    We are definitely a test population- I'm pretty sure they sold out of stock so soon because Microsoft just wanted to cruise for opinions and get their feet wet. I expect more full features and a nice sized update around the same time they becomes more widely available in the USA.
