    Microsoft just announced that you can link your Band/Health data to HealthVault. I think this is the feature I've been missing the most. I'm just starting to look at it now but it looks good.

    Looks good so far, updates the info pretty quick from what I've seen so far.

    I still wish they would enable editing of runs... :(

    Not sure about the HealtVault app, but talking about the website: dashboard.microsofthealth.com

    My Band hadn't synced with my iPhone 6+ in a few hours, and the data on Microsoft Health showed that, so I synced my Band, refreshed the Microsoft Health website, and the new data was there. Haven't messed with the HealthVault app yet.

    Nice! But it only imported about 3 days of sleep. Not the months of history in the Health App.

    Looks like it's linking exercise, and sleep. But not other things like my daily steps. At least it didn't import any.

    Bought my Band yesterday and just signed up to HealthVault today. HealthVault shows nothing, but the Health Dashboard for the Band shows it's linked. I'm guessing there may be a few bugs to work out.

    At least for me it appears that not all data is syncing or consistently displaying. For example, steps sync and show, while a recorded run on my band has not sync'd. Not sure if it is the system still trying to catch up or if it is because I name my exercises shortly after completing them.

    Sleep is syncing and current.

    (Moving this over from a neighboring thread!)

    OK, quick follow-up...started poking around in the HealthVault and here are some first impressions after linking it to the Health App:

    - morning walk pretty much showed up right away
    - pretty scant data from the walk...basically time, distance, duration, calories, and some heart rate data
    - no option in the Exercise view to import from another source, also no map view
    - there's a nice tile on the Home screen that "graphs" the exercise; curious to see how that expands with more workouts
    - I had the option to rename my walk (it defaulted to "Running") but that change didn't propagate back to the Band Dashboard

    - AHA!! just noticed while viewing Exercise that there's an option to view workouts as either List or Chart -- Chart view looks good (duration, distance, calories, and steps, though oddly the last is missing from my walk -- maybe that's normal for the Band)

    A few other random observations:

    - in the Weight view there's an option to import (e.g., CSV) -- that'll come in handy as I've been telling MFP for the last 3 months my daily weight (though getting it out of MFP will be a minor PITA).

    - the Food and Drink view is really underpowered -- basically it's set up so you name a meal, and then enter total calories...not inviting at all...also no option to import -- that's a shame, I'd grown accustomed to entering in food data in MFP and was hoping to switch to the HealthVault
    - as a backdoor approach, I just tried Microsoft's Health and Fitness app (and they say Android is a FRAGMENTED OS) but anyway, even though H&F has a better interface for entering data (it has PopTarts in its database!!!) and I set it up to sync with my MS account, of course nothing showed up in the HealthVault (Hadn't there been rumors that MS was killing H&F anyway?)

    Remember all this is focused on what's happening in HealthVault once you link it to your Band/Health account.

    Well, mine uploaded yesterdays steps to healthvault. I don't see any place in healthvault at all to see sleep though. I have all tiles turned on as well within the site

    The Dashboard (https://dashboard.microsofthealth.com/) has a fabulous week and month view of sleep, but yeah I didn't spot anything sleep-related either in the HealthVault.

    By the way, I don't get that line midway through the plot, shaded light above and dark below. What gives? EDIT: DUH, my bad, that's obviously the HR data in the background! On that note, regarding "Resting HR" during sleep, note that the Dashboard explains:

    Resting heart rate refers to the measure of your heart rate after 10 minutes of rest or non-activity. Your resting HR may be lower while you are sleeping.
    This might potentially explain many of us have noticed that our "resting HR" tends to be significantly lower than an eyeball estimate of our "average HR" during sleep.

    Health vault and the dashboard are two different services.
    Healthvault.com. Health vault is an aggregator for all health stuffs including medicines, medical tests /procedure etc. I figured there was some miscommunication on what some of us were viewing.๐Ÿ˜

    Ok, my stats are showing today! Gotta say, my timing of purchasing the Band (pure luck) was perfect!

    Ok, now that it's been linked for a day, yesterday's steps is showing are showing in Health Vault - but none of the history. Bummer. But over time, that's probably not going to matter.

    I haven't seen update to iphone app yet, but on dashboard, I'm seeing all my history back through when I bought the band on 10/31. I'm seeing sleep, runs, workouts, calories, and steps. I've never done custom workout so other than missing sensors that have always been hidden I'm seeing everything I'd expect. The observation view in sleep and calories is pretty cool.

    Just to amplify on that: MS Heath/dashboard is a personal fitness thing.

    MS HealthVault is doctor-level medical records and can be shared with your doctor(s) and other heath care providers. It can also integrate other sources of information, like blood glucose meters, blood pressure measurements, etc. It's been around for 7 years, but may not be that well known. The linking of Band data to medical care is one of the things that made me snag it the day it came out.

    Dashboard: Full history.
    HealthVault: Limited (if any) history, but seems to record day-forward.

    Health and Fitness used to be linked to HealthVault, but they unlinked it late last year for no apparent reason. When I got a Lumia with SensorCore it used to be perfect because the phone would track my calories burned throughout the day and I could manually input my food to see the calories I've consumed. If they could bring back H&F's integration, or add a user-friendly food input tool to the new Health app, then that would be great. I'm sure they could gain even more insights by not only tracking calories expended but also tracking calories consumed.

    Either I'm losing my mind (which is entirely possible) or the the option wasn't there yesterday (but is clearly there now). I'm guessing -- since I linked HealthVault yesterday -- that it wasn't available until there was a night of sleep and voil now I see it and last night's data. So my sanity is at least temporarily intact.

    Thanks, very helpful post! On a slight tangent, I have to admit I pretty much grasp the various services and options in front of us, so I'm ever so slightly irritated by the well-meaning attempts to explain the difference between, say, HealthVault and the new Dashboard, but (and this is a BIG BUT) we clearly don't come into the forum with datatsheets pinned to our foreheads that state what we do and don't know, so the attempts to educate one another (though sometimes a bit patronizing) are definitely a valuable community service, especially for new owners/forum members. By the way, I was praising your post -- it doesn't fall into the category I'm trying to politely characterize. Damn, I think I just went on a rant...sorry. I should probably try to get more sleep!

    EDIT: please forgive the snarkiness above...I'm a mod on other forums and I should know better!
