How to Use Microsoft Band Guided Workout 2


These instructions are an adaptation of what Microsoft suggests. They have decent instructions but put more than is needed in one place.


First, you will need to use the Microsoft Health App on your phone. You need to choose which workout you want to do. I only have 2, upper body and lower body. Some of you will have 1 and others will have up to 7 different workouts (one for each day of the week if they are different).

    • Tap My Workouts to see a list of your custom or edited workouts.
    • Tap Favorites to see a list of your favorite selected workouts.
    • Tap Browse by Brand to find workouts by top fitness brands.
    • Tap Browse by Type to find workouts in categories such as strength, body weight, running, or golfing.

When you find a workout, sync it to your Band:

Once the workout is synced to your band, you are done with your phone for now. You can leave it in the car, or take it with you and listen to some tunes.

Now you are ready to use your band.

Your Band will prompt you through the exercises, counting down the time or reps left to completion.

When you complete each exercise, your Band vibrates to let you know it’s time to move on to the next exercise. For some exercises, your Band will even let you know when it’s time to rest.
Step 3:

Press the action button when you’ve completed the reps or the countdown timer reaches zero. Your Band will continue to prompt you through the rest of the workout routine.
