There are some weird bugs on the Microsoft Band. Yesterday, I remember doing 10,820 steps. When I checked my steps history today, the data shows a very different number. It says 8,344 steps. What happened to the other 2,476 steps? After some digging, it turns out the steps data seems to be recording fine. It's the Microsoft Health app for Windows Phone that's messing up the dates.
It looks like Microsoft Health for Windows Phone is displaying the steps data from the day before. So, instead of showing 10,820 steps for November 5th, it's showing my steps data from November 4th. The steps data on the Microsoft Health app for iOS is not affected. You can see a clearer picture below. The numbers basically shift by one day.
Some people in our Microsoft Band forums are experiencing other issues with the steps data. Daniel Rubino, our Editor-in-Chief, shares this issue:
For Daniel, it seems the Microsoft Band DOES count steps even in run mode for day of, but changes it the next day.
Let's hope Microsoft knows about these problems already and have an update coming soon. Have you noticed any other bugs with your Microsoft Band? Let us know in the comments or join the discussions in the forums.
