Everyone’s been getting in on the wearables action as of late, and now it’s time to for the tech giant Microsoft to show what they have up their sleeves. This week the brand has unveiled their Microsoft Band.

Sure it’s a fully capable fitness tracker with 10 built-in sensors to track your heart rate, calories burned, UV exposure, GPS run mapping and sleep quality, but it’s also so much more. The aptly titled Band has been outfitted with an easy to read 1.4-inch touchscreen that displays all sorts of notifications from your smartphone, including phone calls, emails, text messages, and your social updates from Facebook and Twitter. The Band doesn’t discriminate when it comes to your desired OS either. It works seamlessly with Androis, iOS, and of course Windows powered devices. There is one perk going with a Windows device though, and that’s the ability to access Cortana’s voice activated controls. The device boasts a 48-hour battery life, and will carry a $199 retail price tag. [Purchase]
