HOWTO: Export data collected from your Microsoft Band

imageThe Microsoft Band collects data about you throughout the day as you wear it and through your phone or desktop, it uploads this data into the Microsoft Health service.  The $64 question is, “How do you get at that data?  How can you export it?”

Enter the “Unband Beta” application.

Unband is a 3rd party application for Windows that has the following features (as taken from the developer’s web site):

  1. Change Theme colours to arbitrary colours.
  2. Change Background to arbitrary backgrounds.
  3. Export all of your activity data from the Microsoft Health cloud service.
  4. Supports exporting GPX files for those of you who like viewing your runs elsewhere.

The app is a click-to-run .NET application that is actually about 6MB when it’s fully downloaded and installed.

WARNING: Unband is still ‘alpha’ code and isn’t rock solid so while it’s super cool, you need to set your expectations appropriately.
