Galvanic skin response (GSR) sensor

Behind the clasp and the face of your Band are two sensors and the charging port. Rechargeable lithium-polymer batteries are encased in your Band.

Behind the clasp

  • Charging port. Connect the magnetic charging connector on the USB charging cable to the charging port on the Band, making sure to line up the gold contact points on the charging cable with the gold contact points on the charging port. Plug the USB end of the cable into a powered USB port (USB 2.0 or greater).
  • For more info, see Microsoft Band 2 battery and charging.

  • Galvanic skin response (GSR) sensor. The GSR sensor measures the conductivity of your skin between the GSR diode contact points on the other side of the clasp, raised from the battery cover. This tells your Band whether you’re wearing it, so it can adjust how it monitors your activities.
  • For more info, see Microsoft Band sensors.

Behind the face

  • Heart rate monitor. The optical heart rate monitor measures changes in your heart rate throughout the day. For more info, see Track your heart rate.
