We are continually expanding our partnership roster to provide the best possible Microsoft Band experience that matches your fitness interests and ideal training methods. Today, we’re taking another muddy step forward on this journey.

We are thrilled to announce that Microsoft Band is the official training wearable of Tough Mudder this season. As part of this new partnership, we are working with Coach Mud to build custom Guided Workouts that help you train and get to the starting line for your next, or even first Tough Mudder challenge.

Get Tough Mudder workouts on your wrist or phone
Whether you have a Microsoft Band or use the free Microsoft Health app on your Lumia, Android or iOS phone, you can download the Tough Mudder Guided Workout to help you achieve your fitness goals and bolt across the river, through the woods and over the wall.

Insights you can count on

With 11 advanced sensors, Microsoft Band tracks your heart rate and calorie burn during your workout and provides actionable insights to help you improve over time. Stay fit, monitor and track your cardio benefit and recovery time after each training session, and use the built-in GPS to map your runs or bike rides, and the barometer to track your elevation gains. You can even compare yourself to Tough Mudder trainers and others like you to prove you’re the champion we know you are!
