Microsoft Health Becomes Microsoft Band... Eh?


Yesterday Microsoft remained committed to its Health platform. Today Microsoft Health has gone, with the app renamed to Microsoft Band on Windows 10 and Android.

What gives?

There's no new Band hardware coming - unless Microsoft has blindsided everyone and will have a surprise announcement at its October Surface event - and the Band 2 hardware appears to be in constrained supply as a result of manufacturing ending.

So why lumber a platform that is allegedly fully supported with the name of a piece of hardware which is dead, even if it hasn't stopped moving yet. Makes no sense to me.

On this basis I'm expecting the next update to the Groove Music service to re-introduce the Zune branding.
