With this update, Microsoft is adding a navigation bar to the bottom of the screen with options for Home, Profile, Insights and Social.

The new “Insights” feature will allow Band users to get actionable information based on the data collected by the Health app and Cortana, and use it to improve overall health.

Insights are for those users who are frequently working out and want to know the best ways of keeping fit, with tips and information personalized for each specific person.

However, Insights doesn't yet work on the internal build, even with a new firmware update for the Microsoft Band. The new firmware does not include any new features to be excited about.

Microsoft Health For PC

Since Microsoft Health is now a UWP app, its PC version also appears to be coming with an improved interface. According to Zac Bowden of Windows Central, the PC app is still “pretty rough”, but we should see this UI get cleaned up quite a bit before the official release. The screenshot is given below:
