Hands on with first ever Microsoft’s ‘Fitness Band’ unveiled yesterday. The most anticipated fitness band is available at just $199. This cross platform fitness band measures your heartbeat with the help of band’s sensors. Watch out how many more steps you need to walk by setting a limit of steps you walk. It displays some useful information about the calories burnt.

Microsoft also released ‘Microsoft Health’ app to store the health information to track your fitness levels. Now let us see some of the features in detail:

Whenever you walk for longer distances, you can’t guess the exact distance you have walked. With the help of the GPS tracking system, the device locates the locations you have walked for a certain period of time. It shows the total distance walked, the calories burnt, total duration for the distance you have walked and so on.
