    Got latest Fast Ring build 14283 the other day. It was a long download/install on my 950XL but seems to be good so far.

    Except when it comes to re-pairing the Band 2.

    Band 2 lost connection to Health app I think after the update. Tried hard resetting the Band. Ensured Band was removed as a recognized Bluetooth device in WP settings. When pairing the Band says it was successful but Health app says there was an error. I also uninstalled/reinstalled Health a couple of times but no luck.

    I think I tried everything but I do not plan to reset WP because it's a freakin' hassle

    Ideas? Anyone else have an issue now with Insider/Band2?

    Theres some 3ad about that around forum, it seems the temporary workaround is changing primary language, waitin for an app fix. Use search function

    Language change is not 100% reliable...I tried 10 languages before Russian made the band work again, however when I changed back to English the problem came back.
    I reluctantly hard reset my phone and now the band is perfect.

    The problem is that they stated that if they don't fix this bug in the next build, and I hope they do, the bug will come back and you'll need to hardreset again, so be ready for some more pain :)

    For me I set the main language on my 950XL to English (UK) as I am British and the Band 2 paired up fine. Also, from what I understand of my own experience, I only had the Band 2 sync issue with build 14283 after I messed around with the device language settings after installing the latest insider build (fast ring). Up until that point, with the latest build, it was working fine.
