Microsoft has finally announced Social Challenges and Leaderboards for the Band, a new way to keep you motivated to push forward. This will allow you to compete against friends, and challenges can be created for steps, calories burned, longest run and plenty of other measurements. You can create a group of friends to challenge, and then let the competition begin.
From Microsoft's announcement:
If not all of your friends have a Microsoft Band or Band 2, they can still compete using the Microsoft Health app on their phones.
The new Social Challenges and Leaderboards are not expected to roll out to all users until later in the week.
Going by the supplied screenshots we presume these new features will come in the form of an app update for Microsoft Health. We'll keep you posted.
