To day MS announced a thing that was pretty cool… The ability to easily add an information stream to your Microsoft Band. All you need is an RSS feed and an icon image file… lets do it

  1. Go to http://developer.microsofthealth.com/WebTile/ and click get started
  2. Choose a layout

  4. Assign your datafields to the specific fields on the band by drag and drop. I used Channel.Titel, item.title and item.encoded.
