It's kind if an old saying that "Microsoft doesn't get a product right until the 3rd version". They nailed it on the first attempt with the Microsoft Band. This device has been a delight to use. I have tried several other fitness trackers (FitBit, Garmin), but this is the one i prefer most by far.
I'll try not to rehash what I read in the other reviews. This is a great device. The amount of data that it collects is amazing. While the device really shines with Windows Phone, the mobile app also feels like a 1st class citizen on iPhone (there is also a sync app for both Mac and Windows). The sleep monitoring is particularly impressive (I had no idea I was waking up so much). I can even pay for my Starbucks with it.
