BAND NEW LAUNCH


Technology giant Microsoft has made its long-awaited entrance into the UK wearable technology sector with the launch of the fitness-focused Microsoft Band. The wearable device boasts 10 sensors that can track a number


of exercise and health metrics, including sleep quality, heart rate, calories, stress and even a person’s sun exposure. It’s compatible with Windows Phone, iOS and Android devices. The wider accessibility of the Band – compared to the Apple


Watch, which is only compatible with Apple mobile products – forms part of Microsoft’s goal for the device to help people lead healthier lives, regardless of what smartphone they have.

SET PULSES RACING


Used for general exercise, the Mio Fuse fitness tracker features patented electro-optical cell sensor technology that’s able to measure the volume of blood under the skin. Algorithms are applied to detect the


heart’s true rhythm during workouts, with a 0.99 correlation to EKG (electrocardiogram) in lab testing. “With all-day activity tracking and


strapless heart rate monitoring, users can get a more accurate record of how many calories they’ve burnt, how hard they’ve pushed themselves during workouts and how their body is responding with the Mio Fuse,” says Mio Global CEO Liz Dickinson. Mio Fuse is water-resistant to a


depth of 30m, and is compatible with a range of third-party apps.
