The Microsoft Band 2 just got a tad bit better. Microsoft has announced that its wearable is now lets you track changes to your weight. Just enter your weight into the the Microsoft Health app regularly, and the app graphs the data to show your progress. The GPS Power Save mode extends the battery life of your Band for up to 4 hours when you exercise with GPS. Here is how it works:

we enabled a new feature that lets your new Microsoft Band’s GPS sample your location in intervals, rather than continuously, by turning on GPS Power Saver. Even with GPS Power Saver turned on, Microsoft Health will still map your route in the mobile app and web dashboard.

Microsoft Band 2 is listed for $249.99 on Microsoft but you may be able to get it for cheaper elsewhere.
