    Greetings. I'm looking for a good home for 2 MS Band version 2 devices and 4 charging cords. I'm fairly certain that one band is a 'medium' and the other one a 'large'. Both were working at last use but have been reset, so without the MS Health app, which is long gone, you can't get past setup.

    I'm hoping to find a innovative technologist who can re-purpose these for continued use as anything. Perhaps someone has written an app to communicate with them to replace the now-discontinued MS Health app. I just hate throwing away what was semi-recently a $400 purchase. Someone should be able to hack these such that they do _something_ valuable.

    I would only be looking to recover reasonable shipping costs. Tell me what you have in mind.

    Note that in the pictures I show three bands, but I've found a good home for one of them now.

    Thanks

    Are they "bricked" (meaning do they need to be set up with an account which is no longer possible) or are you able to use them for workout tracking and a sleep tracker and alarm, etc...?

    My Band 2 is now entirely covered in Sugru due to constant band tears and I fear it's on its way out. For this current band, I have literally only worn it to track sleep which makes it so frustrating it's still tearing.

    Anyway, your offer is very generous. As long as they no longer need to be set up with Microsoft Health, I'll take you up on it!

    Two of them are stuck in setup which requires you to connect to the Microsoft phone band app, which is no longer available. From that standpoint I'd say yes, they are bricked because unless you can get past setup there's nothing I know that you can do with them. The third band, which I think is a small, still lets you bring up various sport activities and track them on the band itself, so it could be used for walks, hikes, bike rides, etc., I think.
