My Band on the clever charging stand that @idlehandsdev designed.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Microsoft Band from the first batch that sold out so quickly a few weeks ago. I’ve been wearing it daily since then, using it to track my sleep, measure and analyse workout sessions, and even to buy the odd Americano at Starbucks.

Since then, lots of people have asked me how I like the Band and how well it works. So, here’s a quick rundown of my experience with it thus far, including the time it went dead in the middle of a workout.
