When you stop playing with the Microsoft Band, by default, the display turns black. It looks kind of boring, but you can enable Watch Mode so that your Microsoft Band turns into a digital wristwatch. The time and date will be displayed when the screen times out. It's like the Glance screen for Windows Phone. Here's how to enable it.

  1. On your Microsoft Band, press the power button.
  2. Swipe left, and tap the Settings Tile The Settings Tile.
  3. Tap the Watch icon, and under Watch Mode, tap to turn Watch Mode On

Turning Watch Mode on, will most likely use up more battery, but we need to do more testing to see if it makes a big difference. Right now, we like it turned on.
