Microsoft Band/Band 2 on inKin
By Jamily Gray 2 years ago
Welcome to inKin! I don't know about you, but I have been yearning for a community to bond/share/compete with as a Microsoft Band user for over a year now. The dashboard at https://dashboard.microsofthealth.com is a great companion to the Band and the Health app for a solitary experience, but it sorely lacks the community and comradery you'd find in other fitness platforms. I truly think the Band 2 is one the best fitness bands out there as it combines a robust tracking for a wide variety of activities (with the exception of swimming) while providing smart phone features like replying to messages, music controls, use Cortana with voice commands, and pay for your morning joe with the Starbucks app! You'd think that Microsoft would nurture a community for it's Band users with such a great product... but inKin has not only provided the base for us, but created a platform for (most) all fitness trackers alike to bond/share/compete in a growing global community! So tell your family member or co-worker or gym buddy with the Fitbit HR in the 10-person step challenge group to open their minds and join a real competition on a global stage with more than just steps. Welcome them to inKin!

In my opinion, the true force of inKin.com is this: Creating a multi-vendor/multi-tracker platform. Grabbing the attention of all those separate "silo" communities out there. Bringing them all together, and creating one single active community. Winner for the Best "Activity/fitness" Award for 2016 !!

Trying to get people on board and using this at work (SmartFile). Hoping that InKin add Apple Watch support in the future as well for my other coworkers. I personally use the Band 2 and love the community that inkin provide :D! Thank yoU!

Couldn't agree more. I think MSFT really dropped the ball on the community aspect of the bands. Lucky inkin is feeling the void.

Hey, Kins! Great news!! The team at inKin has connected the activity metric from Microsoft Health as of today. You can now use your Microsoft Band for the following metrics: steps, calories, sleep, pulse, activity, and distance. Stay Fit!

Community is coming and this site really helps the void a good bit on that as well.

FYI. If you haven't noticed, the activity metric is currently logged by Jawbone, Withings, Fitbit, Moves, MisFit, and Garmin tracking platorms only. Microsoft Health data for activities currently does not transfer (bummer, I know)... My fingers are crossed that the team at inKin can get activity (and maybe even VO2 max) records transferred from Microsoft Health at some point in the near future :) For now, activities would have to be manually logged if you are competing in an activity contest. I may have found a work-around, but I needs to test it out a bit more.
