Report: Microsoft Smartband Will Feature A UV Index Sensor

Based on previous reports, we all know that Microsoft is working on a fitness oriented wearable device that will be compatible with iOS and Android devices in addition to Windows Phone devices.

Today, IBTimes reported that this upcoming fitness band will feature a blood-glucose monitor and a UV sensor.

The device will feature a UV Index sensor to help warn the user of harmful levels of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight in order to better protect against the risk of skin cancer.

The blood-glucose monitor will be used to help track users’ fitness levels and assist people who suffer from diabetes.

As we already know, Microsoft is planning to launch this smartband before the end of this year.

    This is evolving into an all-in-one general health device. What next, handing it to
    your health care provider and they scan and upload all your vitals for their records?

      No need, it will sync with HealthVault and you can have that send all the info to your doctor automatically.

    I’d rather see a fantastic smart watch. I have no interest in a smart watch, but I’d love to see what they could do.
