Here at Blueforce, we think back just ten years ago and the state of personal computing at the time. We were fresh out of Iraq and post-9/11 and simple gamecam capabilities could run a DoD unit upwards of $80,000 a sensor.

Microsoft Band 2 is what one would expect from Microsoft.  It is not a single faceted device that merely sends steps or heartbeats.  It also has the ability to receive commands from third party applications via a well documented API, and of course, the Microsoft approach to "platform" shines through.  Blueforce committed very quickly to building for this platform.  The band can serve as a...
