In the market for a new fitness tracker but not sure which one to buy? If you're looking for a golf tracking app, perhaps the Microsoft Band may be the way to go.
Microsoft and TaylorMade recently announced plans to offer a golf tracker for Microsoft Band.
Here's a quick synopsis, according to Microsoft's landing page:
As you play your round, get all the information you need on your Microsoft Band. The built-in GPS detects which hole you’re playing and finds your range, while advanced sensors track your strokes, steps, heart rate, and calorie burn. After your round, Microsoft Health helps you analyze your fitness and game stats.
And because you’re playing with Microsoft Band, you can stay connected while you play. Your band notifies you about important texts, emails, and calls.
Golf global positioning systems -- or GPS -- have been available for some time, and some even strap to your wrist. But this might be the first time a fitness tracker has offered a specific app for golfers.
When will it be available? "Coming soon," according to Microsoft. However, there is a short video that explains some of the features the new app will offer when it's ready for public use.
