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.
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 are buggy. 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 broke music control and phone detects high battery usage from app. -1 stars
I loved this device too bad no one caught on. App was updated per request. Band 2 had everything without having to have phone present for exercise and awesome display. App didn't require Band for basics.
Love it; problems with latest release. Been using for over a year and is generally great. Had to knock off a star because latest release has sync and connection issues. Previous version had no problems.
The Microsoft Band 2 is outstanding...I've never seen so much data. It has completely changed my life. I've lost 20.5 lbs and move 1000% more than ever. I PRAY Microsoft keeps this product around. I'm going to buy one for my wife and daughter. 8000% better than a FitBit, which is a great product also. The MS Band 2 would be, in my opinion, the Bentley of wearables.
