Sure, Microsoft may not be releasing a new version of its Band activity tracker this year. But that hasn't stopped the company from rebranding its generically named Health app on Android, as noticed by Paul Thurrott. "We've got a new name! The Microsoft Health app is now the Microsoft Band app, everything else is the same," the patch notes say.

Apparently, bug fixes are a part of the update too, but if recent Google Play reviews are anything to go by, the application still needs a ton more where those came from. Over on iOS, the app still carries the Health name. Now to see if a new moniker sparks fresh interest from its developers. Spoiler: it probably won't.
