    Hi all,

    I read a rumour recently that stated that Microsoft is working on the second generation Band. I have also read here on Windows Central that Microsoft plans to discontinue MSN Health & Fitness, which I feel is disappointing as it's one of my most commonly used apps. I love the health articles as well as the ability to track my steps each day. I'm guessing it didn't catch on as much as Microsoft had hoped.

    Anyway, I'm curious as to what effect discontinuing MSN Health and Fitness will have on the Microsoft Band. I don't have a Band, but was under the impression that tracking your Band's exercise data was done through the Health and Fitness app. If Health and Fitness is gone on Windows Mobile and Windows, how will this be possible except for the web?

    Looking forward to your thoughts. 😊

    The MSN Health & Fitness app is separate from the Microsoft Health app that the Band uses. My guess is that they are eliminating the MSN app to consolidate the features into the Microsoft Health app. This will also help with any confusion between the two.
