Microsoft Health for Windows Phone has picked up a fairly significant update today. Coming along for the ride is multi-device support so you can track your steps and calories without the Microsoft Band, support for sharing your bike data with Strava and MapMyRide, and auto-detection for sleep mode. Oh, and there's even a new logo to boot.
Here's the full, official breakdown of what's new in Microsoft Health version 2015.425.409.270:
- Multi-Device support: Track your steps and calories without the Microsoft Band, using the motion sensor on the phone you own*
- Connected Apps: Share your bike data with Strava and MapMyRide
- Sleep: Auto-detect your sleep without activating the Sleep tile.
No matter how you slice it, this is a pretty decent update, especially the auto-detection for sleep mode. Keep in mind that tracking your steps and calories without a Microsoft Band will require a Windows Phone with SensorCore. If you'd like to grab the update, you can hit up the store link below to get started.
