The ultimate guide to Microsoft Band

The Microsoft Band is the Redmond-based company's first foray into the ever growing new wearables category. Part smartwatch, part fitness band, with the Microsoft Band on your wrist you can tell the time, see who's calling you, track your run and even pay for your Starbucks.
