The Run Tile

You can track your running, hiking, and even cross-country skiing stats with the Run Tile on your Microsoft Band.

When you’re doing an activity that covers a distance––like walking, running, or cross-country skiing––use the Run Tile on your Microsoft Band to record info about your route, heart rate, calories burned, and other health stats.

 GPS Power Saver Mode

GPS Power Saver Mode can greatly enhance the service's utility and increase the overall Band battery life. The feature reduces the GPS sampling rates, from continuous to a less-frequent cadence (algorithm driven to potentially as low as once every 30 seconds, depending on lock sensitivity). Although this may affect the event detail specificity of some activities, if can enhance the overall battery life of the Band by up to 4 hours.

 

To maximize the accuracy of mapping data, we recommend that the user avoid certain scenarios while using GPS Power Saver mode:

    • The combination of extremely fast pace and a complex series of turns.
    • Poor GPS quality scenarios, due to positioning of physical obstructions like high rise buildings or dense tree cover, or heavy cloud cover.
    • Moving in a circular route. Following a linear path that doesn't intersect with itself increases the accuracy of GPS on your Band.

To make sure that you are getting the most out of your GPS power saver experience, make sure that you turn off Watch Mode.

To turn on GPS power saver mode:

Step 1: On your Band, press the power button.
Step 2: Swipe left and tap the Run Tile

Step 3: Swipe left and up to toggle GPS power saver to on.
 

Auto Pause

Turning on Auto Pause causes your Band to automatically pause GPS while you are stationary for longer than 5 seconds. Your Band will notify you with a haptic vibration when it pauses GPS. When you continue on your run, GPS will automatically start calculating your coordinates again and will notify you with a haptic vibration. Auto Pause will also work with services like GPS Power Saver.

To turn on Auto Pause:

Step 1: On your Band, press the power button.
