Today Microsoft is rolling out the first firmware update for the Microsoft Band. First spotted by Windows Observer, this morning the Health app for Windows Phone received an update and the release also came with firmware for the Band.
The firmware is rolling out with build number of 1.1.2110.0.09 R, but interesting enough, the company hasn’t attached any changelog to see what bugs have been resolved or what improvements have been made.
However, the Microsoft Health app only notes “General app fixes and improvements”.

Now, how do you update your Microsoft Band to the latest firmware? First, install the update for the Microsoft Health app, then open up the app and then you will be prompted to install the firmware for the Band.
When you press OK, the app and the Microsoft Band will connect and the update process will begin. You will probably notice that your Band will restart at least once.
After the update has completed installing, your Microsoft Band will restart one last time and tapping Next will get you back to the app.
I will be updating this post later on when Microsoft releases the changes.
Update: On Microsoft’s update history web page for the Band, only says that the latest firmware includes “general fixes and improvements”.
