    Last I checked you couldn't use your Band with the Windows 10 build preview builds. Has anyone tried it with the latest that came out yesterday?
    This is the last thing keeping me from trying W10 on my main phone. I don't want to live without the Band.

    Band is working good with this weeks build. However the golf option is completely missing from the health app so I cannot update my course.

    Ah, that's cool. I'm not a golfer - I can live without that part. :)
    Thanks!

    I guess you mean working notification?
    Notification for call is working normally,
    Notification for sms working but sometimes late, sometimes doubled.
    Notification for others for ex. whatsapp isn't working
    Cortana isn't working
    That is bug i found when using build 10166

    I've found that you can't rearrange the tiles in the health app either. Plus, it doesn't restore your steps and calories for the day. Back to zero on both.

    I can't seem to get my band to connect for more than 3 seconds. Did you have the same issue? If so, how did you fix it?

    My Band won't connect longer than about a second as well, never has with W10M preview. This time around, I also can't get the Health app to open at all. Tried uninstalling it and now can't get it back (Lumia 1520). Really, the Band not working is my only real problem with this build (besides Office apps being very rudimentary) and I'd love to keep it! So hopefully, someone will share a tutorial how to get the Band to work

    Unregister the band in the health app and reset it.

    I had to uninstall health and unregister the Band and delete the BT pairing and start from scratch, but its working now. No Cortland is a bit of a bummer.

    I think I'm going to leave it until they get Cortana working. Currently running mine on a 930 8.1 GDR1 waiting for GDR2 to fix some issues as well.

    Whew, thought it was just me...I did a reset for 10166 and had to factory reset and noticed that golf was missing too.

    Hope they update the Health app in the new non-beta store soon!

    Using the Band fairly well on the 10166 preview. As mentioned...you have to unregister the band and pretty much start from scratch to get it all to start working.

    One issue I had with it after getting it to work is with the arranging of the tiles. I could not get the tiles to move with the rearrange setting in MH app. So what I did to get a work around was to remove each tile and start adding one by one as the order I wanted. You have to add one at a time and allow to sync each time you add one...but it worked. Hope that helps others out.

    Only other thing I have noticed so far mainly using the band as a notification watch and for sleep...is the weather tile is worse now....haaaaa I think the MSFT weather app needs more updating first.

    if your gps is off, the weather tile does always give you the weather from a random place!
    very stupid, why doesn't remember the last place?

    anybody tried the latest 10512 build yet and tested the Band? I had too many notifications missing on the previous build 10166 and had to go back to 8.1
    thanks

    Download the Band sync app to the puter so you can sync and charge properly also tile placement and other personal needs. I have 10 and it works great with the Band and its sync app. https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=6_3i-lBE After the download and run it charges USB and syncs thru it.

    That sounds really great that it sync's through the cable at the same time as charging.

    Is that with latest version of PC Windows 10 - Home and Pro or just Pro.

    Both, and it is much better than the phone app. Go to system and turn on Bluetooth and sinc the phone with your puter app also. The phone tends to catch up the following day with statistics anyway. The big help for me is the ability to move the tiles around so it is more convenient when I'm on my golf cart bounding around and the buzz is a message or mail so I don't jump all over the place with the thing, just read the message and click back. Lol.

    Now if I could only figure a way to stop the corrosion to the brass charging terminals on the plate at the back of the band. I see this as a major malf coming soon for me. The end it all and a search for a better one.
