Microsoft Band 2

Owners of the Microsoft Band 2 fitness wearable should be on the lookout for a new update which adds a couple of new features, including one called Auto Pause.

Auto Pause

In a blog post, Microsoft stated:

"When you enable Auto Pause, your band will automatically pause your tracking session when it senses you've stopped. When you start again, your session will automatically resume. Stop at that intersection, take a water break, or chat with your neighbor without a second thought. Auto Pause works with the Run Tile and the Bike Tile on Microsoft Band 2."

The update also adds a number of character-based languages on the Microsoft Band 2 like Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean in the Settings tile. The device is currently on sale for a limited time for $174.99, which is $75 off its normal price.

Update: The Microsoft Health app is now being updated for Windows Phone and with it new firmware bumping to 2.0.4313.0.
