Compete with your Facebook friends

 

Challenge your friends with the Microsoft Band app on your phone. See who can get the most steps, keep their heart rate up the longest, or go the greatest distance.



Social challenges and leaderboards let you compete with your Facebook friends in activities like walking, running, biking, and exercising. Create a challenge or accept a challenge to go head-to-head with your friends using the Microsoft Band app on your phones.

  • Step challenge: See who can log the most steps.
  • Cardio score challenge: See who can keep his or her heart rate up the longest.
  • Run challenge: See who can run the farthest.
  • Bike challenge: See who can bike the farthest.

Connect with friends

Microsoft Band identifies your Facebook friends who have also connected Microsoft Band with Facebook and automatically adds them to your friends list.

If your Facebook friends haven't connected their accounts with Microsoft Band:

Step 1: On your phone, tap the Microsoft Band app.
Step 2: On the Home screen, tap the
social tile
 tile.
Step 3: Tap Invite Facebook friends, enter the name of the friends you want to invite, and tap Send.
Step 4: The invitation includes a link to download the Band app. Once they have downloaded the app, they will need to connect Microsoft Band to their Facebook account.


You can hide any of your friends' stats from the daily leaderboards at any time:


Step 1: On your phone, tap the Microsoft Band app.
Step 2: On the Home screen, tap the 
social tile
 tile.
Step 3: Tap the Friends tab.
Step 4: Tap the   icon.
Step 5: Select the check mark
Accept icon
 to the right of your friend's name. You will no longer see your friend's workout stats.

The Friends tab in Social Challenges and Leaderboards shows a list of your Facebook friends who are also connected to Microsoft Health.

Hiding a friend's activities does not prevent that person from seeing your stats. To prevent a friend from participating in your challenges and viewing your stats, you have to unfriend that person on Facebook. This might take time to complete, depending on the speed of the Facebook service.
