So Microsoft is killing off the MS band in May.....and I used my Band 2 all the time for non health stuff. I used it a lot for notifications, sms get and send, and some other random things. That will all stop. I need a new solution that is NOT AN APPLE DEVICE. Has to be able to get notifications, sms, email, from things like ebay, facebook but i also need to be able to respond to certain things, especially SMS, using it. The band has an on screen keyboard which is great. If it does health tracking stuff that is fine too. Can't be a huge gaudy thing like a lot of smart watches.
