    I lost my Band 2 a couple months ago and was getting ready to purchase another until I saw the announcement about the Microsoft Health site and app not working after May. I've been trying to find another brand to replace it but not sure what would meet my needs.

    I'm using a Lumia 950XL

    I would like a replacement that has:

    Step counter
    Heart rate monitor
    SMS notifications
    Email notifications
    Call alerts

    Nice to haves:

    GPS
    Misc app notifications (Facebook, Skype, etc.)

    Any ideas on what would work for me?

    For most of what you need, the Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic would work.
    Moving into Android Wear, the Polar M600 is a pretty killer device. Battery life is the best I've personally experienced with Wear OS.

    My patched up Band 2 (3rd and final one) died a month ago and I've been using a garmin Vivoactiv 3 music and like i. It doesn't sync with my 950xl, so I sync weekly with my SP. Last summer I briefly tried a Fitbit Ionic, but returned it cuz notifications and syncs were unreliable with both android and W10M, battery was defective and app sucked in my opinion. Garmin is better than Ionic in every aspect in my opinion. I still prefer Band 2, but that ship has sailed unfortunately.

    I couldn't use any WearOS devices with my 950 though, right?
