Microsoft Health apps to get a new name

img_0096We recently reported that Microsoft was going to pull the pin on their Microsoft Band 2 fitness band and focusing on their online Microsoft Health platform.

Reports are now surfacing that the Health platform is being renamed to Microsoft Band.

It’s not the first time Microsoft has re-purposed a name. They did the same with Surface, which is now used for their tablet computer platform after starting as a coffee table touchscreen platform.
