But the downside to this power is that it needs to be charged more frequently. I recommend doing so every day if possible, and developing a charging strategy that makes sense for your own schedule.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-band/microsoft-band-tip-develop-charging-strategy" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-band/microsoft-band-tip-develop-charging-strategy#comments Microsoft Band Wed, 26 Nov 2014 21:14:00 +0000 46821 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Band Tip: Handle Calls and Text Messages http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-band/microsoft-band-tip-handle-calls-and-text-messages <div class="field-deck"> Not just a fitness band </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft Band isn't just a fitness gadget.
