The Microsoft Band 2 received an update last week that enabled music controls, improvements in the Exercise tile, and the addition of Activity Reminder. With the update, the Microsoft Band 2 can now remind you when to get up and move if you've been still for too long. We'll show you how to enable it on your Band.

  1. Go to settings on the Microsoft Band 2 (gear tile)
  2. Tap the snail icon
  3. Turn on/off the Activity reminder
  4. Swipe left and select the duration for inactive minutes. You can select from 30 minutes to 120 minutes.
  5. Swipe left and select the range of time you want to be reminded. By default, you can get reminders between 8 AM and 7 PM.
  6. Swipe left and choose whether you want to get reminders during weekends, weekdays, or everyday.

That's it! This feature reminds us of the third-party app Walk Reminder that was released for the original Microsoft Band. We're glad to see that Microsoft has made it a built-in feature on the new Band.

What are your Activity Reminder settings for the Microsoft Band 2? Let us know in the comments!
