    Well for running in rain, that's what's state on the MS site:
    https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=BuUGZpVa

    Microsoft Band meets these standards for dust- and water-resistance:

    IP6X: No ingress of dust. Complete protection against entry of dust.
    IPX7: Protection against temporary immersion in water (at depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes).
    IP67: Means it meets both the dust- and water-resistance standards above.


    And for the GPS Question, I think people reported ~5-6h of running with GPS activated

    There have been a few threads on rain proof ability of the band. You can run with it in the rain. I've ran with it in a monsoon for the length of a half marathon. Or at least it seemed like that.

    My personal experience has been up to 3 hours with the GPS and the screen on. Without the screen on, I can get up to five hours with GPS tracking.
