UPDATE: Ever since the Nougat update, my Band2 no longer syncs even after hard resets, reinstalls, etc. Does everything it needs to but would like a few nicities. Allowing us to set custom wallpapers on the band and setting custom colors in the app would be nice.
It was good at first but now it's constantly crashing and it's draining my battery. Will have to uninstall if not fixed soon. 2 week update: app is still constantly crashing and can't even access anymore. Bluetooth connection keeps getting lost and I do not get all the notifications on my band.
The app was working really well for me until my phone (ZTE Axon 7) received the nougat update. Now it won't work. I've reset the Bluetooth connection with my band 2 multiple times, have uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times, and restarted the phone. After reinstalling the app and restarting the phone, it syncs for about an hour (notifications work and info updates), but then stops working.
I am not a great fan of the current layout. The notifications are hit-and-miss. The music controls don't work if you have bluetooth controls. It does not support the Samsung stock email client for emails on the Band. Latest update broke the sleep tracking. Now i get 0 hours of sleep every night. Come on Microsoft, you have abandoned the band, why do you push updates to break the smartwatch completely? Latest update: phone detects high battery usage from app. -1 stars
Had to change my review. The band is great. Customer service isn't. Ran into the common issue that people have where it stops working. Sent it in for repairs. They can't fix it. I can't get a replacement from the main factory since they are fully out. That doesn't make sense to me. They told me the head office will be out for a few months. I'm told I will get a refund but it's been a few months now. Sent it in January and its now March. The main factory from what I been told is here in the U.S. So definitely shouldn't take 2 months plus. This is beyond ridiculous. Hopefully I hear something by April but my faith in this company is all gone along with my patiences.
Very disappointed with the Band2. Has been replaced twice. It stopped working last week, (third time). The warranty ended Feb. 13, 2017. My husband's also stopped working in January of this year and warranty ended last year. It is my understanding Microsoft no longer makes the Band2, but they still make the Band1. Think I will look into another brand.
