As promised, Microsoft is rolling out a new firmware update for the Microsoft Band 2 fitness wearable that adds the Explore tile and hiking features. Also, the Microsoft Health app has also been updated, which delivers the necessary firmware.
The company announced both updates earlier today. The Microsoft Band 2's new firmware version number is 2.0.4634.0 26. As we reported, it adds the new Explore tile to the device, along with lots of new features designed to help hikers track their movements and more.
The Microsoft Health app for Windows 10 Mobile has also been updated to version 2.3.20516.0 with the firmware download to enable the new Explore title. One other new feature we noticed is that the app has added select all/deselect all option for custom notifications under Notification Center.
A retail listing for the Surface Pro 8 has appeared online, and we believe the listed specs could be accurate. Either way, Microsoft's reveal event for new Surfaces kicks off this Wednesday, and we'll find out the truth then.
New FCC documents released on Friday, September 17, reveal some further information about Microsoft’s forthcoming Surface Duo 2 Android smartphone. The documents confirm 5G, NFC, Wi-Fi 6 and mentions “Wireless Power Transfer.” While it could be Qi wireless charging, there could be a more likely answer about what that is referring to.
