Review of Microsoft Band 2 lauds wearable's health capabilities, but little else

Tech companies continue to churn out new, updated smartwatches in the hopes to beat out the competition, and while Microsoft's new Band 2 delivers on mHealth capabilities, it's far from perfect, according to a review at PCWorld.

While it's a step up from the first Band as far as design goes, boasting a small keyboard, barometric sensor and water resistant capability, third-party app integration and use is severely limited on the new device, according to the review. However, it does offer a Microsoft Health companion app for a user's smartphone that will link both devices, as well as some other promising health capabilities. Article
