Microsoft Band and Health: Announcing TaylorMade’s myRoundPro

Written By published August 20, 2015



The next step in seamless golf and deep analytics is here.

In June, we made an exciting announcement that we are bringing you even more reasons to get outside this summer with your Microsoft Band. We were proud to announce an exclusive partnership with TaylorMade®, bringing an entirely new golf experience to Microsoft Health and Microsoft Band.

Microsoft Band and TaylorMade have partnered up to provide the latest and greatest tech for your lowest score on the green. Today, we’re announcing the next phase of that partnership – the official launch of myRoundPro’s integration with Microsoft Band. Microsoft Band is the first wearable that, with TaylorMade and myRoundPro, tracks your golf game and overall fitness in one integrated device.

With TaylorMade and the new Golf Tile on Microsoft Band, golfers can:

Before Your Round

  • Use TaylorMade’s comprehensive course finder via the Microsoft Health app to quickly find courses nearby.
  • Select which tees you will be using throughout the day.

During Your Round

  • Automatically detect the hole you’re on via on-Band GPS.
  • Get accurate yardage to the front, middle and back of the green from wherever you are on the hole.
  • Keep track of your score with automatic shot detection; don’t worry, we allow mulligans!

Today, with myRoundPro, log in via the Microsoft Health web dashboard and supercharge your game with new rich data about your game that you’ve probably never seen before including:

  • Mapped shot locations
  • Fairways hit
  • Greens in regulation
  • Putts per round
  • Sand saves
  • Scoring average
  • Shot proximity to hole
  • Strokes gained

And, because Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health are designed for you, with data created by you, to encourage you to live your healthiest life – we help you to integrate golf into your health plan and fitness journey.

Microsoft Band keeps track of your steps, heart rate and calorie burn, making golf a part of your fitness routine. And, via the ‘Find a Workout’ section in your Microsoft Health app, we offer five golf workouts, including: 5-Minute Golf Warmup, Gold’s Gym Golf Workout, Beginner Golf Workout, Intermediate Golf Workout, and Advanced Golf Workout.

We’ll not only get you through 18 holes easier and more efficiently, putting that scorecard away and being able to play more focused, but we’ll get you to the first tee trained and ready to play.

TaylorMade and myRoundPro is the ultimate partner for the golfer who wants to know more about what they’re doing on each hole, and how to do it better. Microsoft Health helps you live healthier and be more productive.

So the next time you decide to hit the links, throw on your Microsoft Band and fire up myRoundPro. We look forward to hearing about your experience. And maybe, just maybe, a few less strokes!

Hit ‘em straight!
