Find out when your friends log on to Xbox One with your Microsoft Band

A cool feature about the Microsoft Band is that now you can get notified on your wrist when your friends log on their Xbox One so you can coordinate your gaming sessions. According to our tipster, it's pretty easy to set up your Xbox One and your Xbox One SmartGlass application on your phone to deliver notifications to your Microsoft Band. Now, when your friends get online, you'll instantly know so you won't waste any time in starting that multiplayer game.

Isn't that what people use their phones for? I'm a hold out, but I know a lot of people that don't wear watches cause they use their smartphone to tell time...

I do need to look into the band though, I heard that it can somehow tell when you're riding a bike and give you credit for it.
