I’ve had my Microsoft Band for about one week… unfortunately, I’ve been traveling quite a bit since I got it… and haven’t really taken it through its paces. Today, while at home watching the Detroit Lions, I thought I would take a spin on the treadmill.
After a quick 1 mile (well 1 mile for the Microsoft Band), I noticed that on the treadmill I traveled 1.25 miles. My treadmill is absolutely more accurate. In doing some research to see how can I calibrate my stride, etc. to make the Microsoft Band more accurate, I came across this article on Neowin: You need to calibrate your Microsoft Band: Here’s How.

Hopefully this will save you some time and any frustration. I’ve been really pleased so far with what I’m seeing… and more importantly, the potential of the Microsoft Health Platform.
