#CortanaSweeps: Will you be a winner?

Join @LumiaUS on Twitter at 11 a.m. PDT tomorrow for a chance to win one of six Microsoft Bands!

Readers, if you live in the U.S. and want to try the new Microsoft Band, follow @LumiaUS on Twitter and tune in on that social channel from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. PDT, April 21.

That’s when we’ll hold #CortanaSweeps—a contest that gives you six chances to win a Microsoft Band.

All you have to do is answer the questions about Cortana, your personal digital assistant (available in select markets), posed by @LumiaUS.


The Microsoft Band, currently available in the U.S. and the UK, has nine sensors, including an optical heart rate sensor and a 3-axis accelerometer, to help you track your fitness. You can also get notified of phone calls, emails and meetings so you’ll never miss an important message.

If you want more info about the Microsoft Band, check out our recent stories about it here, here and here.

But first, to help prep you for the sweepstakes, learn a bit more about Cortana.

Want to see a new film this weekend? Cortana can be your movie concierge. She’s also not one for formality—just say “Hey Cortana” and she’ll be there for you. And here’s a story that shows the different ways Cortana can help you do things better over a 24-hour period.

Let us know if you take a chance with fortune and join our #CortanaSweeps!

Best of luck!
