Four months after its release, Band, Microsoft’s wearable smart device, has received its first major update. The update, in conjunction with Windows Phones, brings dictation mode, and a virtual QWERTY keyboard.

The dictation mode is powered by Cortana, Microsoft’s voice recognising personal assistant, while the keyboard uses the same Word Flow software as a Windows Phone. Though the keyboard is small, the smart software compensates for any mistakes, but those who struggle to type on the Band can rely on the effective voice recognition of Cortana for dictation instead.

Microsoft has also included a bike mode for avid cyclists that tracks heart rate, ride, elevation, speed, and distance. Plus, third-party apps are now allowed to utilise the fitness tracker.
