Microsoft have updated the Microsoft Band apps for Android and Windows Phone and have also updated the firmware of the Band.

The Windows Phone edition of the Microsoft Health app has nothing new that I can find so far. The release notes say “General App fixes and improvements” and the build number is now 1.3.1209.1

The Android version has also been updated, the new version of the Android Health app enables you to control which apps send notifications to the notification centre tile on the Band. You go to the Manage Tile option and click on Notification Center. This would be a feature I would like to see on the Windows Phone version.

I was prompted for the firmware update after updating the Windows Phone update, again I couldn’t see anything new.

[Update: I found that the Band now gives you haptic feedback when you connect power to it]
