    Does Band 2 have any simple voice controls, not Cortana integration. But things like "Set a timer for 5 minutes" on the band itself? I haven't been able to figure it out, but thought I'd ask anyway.

    It doesn't have that kind of processing power on its own. Interpreting speech takes a lot of power. Even Cortana on your phone needs the cloud support of Microsoft Servers to accomplish Voice Command.

    That's why it is best paired with a device.
