Microsoft Band 2 pairs up with Android smartphones as good as Android Wear and the Redmond-based company has added another feature in the wearable.
Now users can give voice command through Wearables, without wanting to check on your smartphone. Microsoft’s Digital Assistant, Cortana is enabled in the device which would do valuable commands you give. Earlier, this feature was only available when the Band is connected to a Windows Phone.
However, users will have to update their Health app, following which users can be able to bark voice commands on the Band’s mic. This feature will enable you to stay away from touching your smartphone every now-and-then.
The Digital Lifestyle notifies that the new feature is currently available in the US. The users will have to install Cortana for Android on their phone to enjoy the service.
Users will have to read the application’s changelog on Google Play. It states different abilities that create challenges for everyone in your friends’ circle, who own the wearable.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has pushed another update for the Microsoft Band 2. The new firmware update is rolled out along with a software update for the Microsoft Health Companion app. Windows Phone users can enjoy the features of the new Windows 10 app, notes Windows Central.
Heart Rate Zones is the big new feature which is widely expected in Band 2 since it was released. The announcement title described it as, “Track your heart rate zones on Band: Improve your workout health with notifications for heart rate zones. When you’re at 80% maximum heart rate, the heart rate on Band turns orange. At 90%, it turns red.”
However, it’s not entirely clear now that are there any other bug fixes or improvements for Windows Phone users.
The new feature would certainly be useful for those seeking to maximize their workouts.
