Owners of the Microsoft Band 2 can add a bunch of new activities for the fitness wearable. Active Fitness recently updated its main Windows 10 Mobile app, along with its Winter Sports app, that allow them to add over 50 new activities to the fitness wearable.
"Yes, Microsoft Band can now ski and snowboard, the apps also add fun activities as dog walking, shopping and even inline skating from all over the world to your Microsoft Band! Active Fitness cloud platform user base has grown to more than 2 million users recently, not bad for a small development shop. Active Fitness platform also powers apps from top brands and sport manufacturers, and is a happy sports community"
Additionally, the apps also help the band to conserve its GPS battery use by up to 24 hours. Unfortunately, the apps only link to the Microsoft Band 2 itself; they don't offer integration to the Microsoft Health dashboard as well. Hopefully that will be fixed in a later update.
