    Nice one OP. I was a bit sceptical when I saw this thread earlier

    It's funny how Android and iOS trolls are already trying hard to discredit this device on every tech site you go on to read about this.

    When has Microsoft ever released something on the day that it was announced?

    I'll save you the Bing search: Never.
    Looks like this is the once-in-a-lifetime....

    Or perhaps the beginning of something new. :)

    Since any new WP release it depended on their exclusive locked in U.S. carrier to actually release it for sale. Verizon shelved the Lumia 735 till next year! It all about when the carrier want to sell it! Microsoft seems to have to say in the matter!

    I just picked up a SP 3 at the local Microsoft store and the manager pointed to a bunch of little boxes and told me they were announcing a new device tomorrow and that it was not a phone. He said he had no clue what they were but said they had a conference call tonight at 9:00 for training. I think it has to be the smartwatch.
    Wow you were right!

    Nope, with a two day battery life this has little appeal. Better luck with the 2nd gen band.

    I too am concerned about the battery life, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it has little appeal with a two-day battery life. With a GPS and constant HRM, it's not like you are going to get a week of battery life anytime soon in a device this size. I have a Suunto Ambit 2 watch that the MS Band could replace in certain circumstances, and I just charge it up after every run or bike ride. It becomes a habit. I can see that extra battery life would be very nice, but as long as it is able to track my daily data on longer workouts I can probably deal with recharging it in the evening.
