The coolest tracking app for your Microsoft Band

Posted: November 11, 2015  |  Categories: BizTalk Integration Tools

I know that is not the coolest app that you will find, nor was that the goal, but probably will be the first BizTalk Blog available for your band

Microsoft Band helps you live healthier and achieve more by tracking your heart rate, exercise, calorie burn, sleep quality, and helps you be productive with email, text, and calendar alerts… and now also your favorite blog (or not )

I had (and still have) the original Microsoft Band but on my last trip to the United States, in which I attended another MVP Summit in Redmond, I decided to buy the new Microsoft Band 2 and while I was searching for new features and capabilities I found out that Microsoft had announced, more or less this last July, some new features and functionality for both the Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health, especially the Web Tiles. And with that, the capability for this device to receive glanceable information from nearly any source.

So, just for fun, I decided to play around with these features and create the “SandroaspBizTalkBlog Web Tile” that will allow you to “track” my blog from your new or old Microsoft Band.

This way, when a new blog post will be published you will receive a notification on your wrist!

You can download the “SandroaspBizTalkBlog Web Tile” here: SandroaspBizTalkBlog Web Tile for Microsoft Band

To install it you just need to open the “mytile.webtile” from your mobile device that has the Microsoft Health application installed. The app will do the rest.
