Motion Monitor beta trial concluded. Track your activity with Bing Health & Fitness.


We want to thank all of you who have been using and enjoying Motion Monitor Beta and especially those that gave us feedback.   As a beta, this app previewed some of the capabilities of Lumia SensorCore technology and helped us to fine-tune the SensorCore SDK, now available for app developers.

With SensorCore technology, any app (not just Motion Monitor beta) can access pedometer and activity data that supported devices are able to collect.  Bing Health & Fitness is one of the first examples. 

 today today analysis

Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon devices will get support for Lumia SensorCore technology through the Lumia Cyan software update.  (Additionally, Lumia 630, Lumia 635, and Lumia 930 will support this technology out-of-the-box.)

With these developments we will now conclude the Motion Monitor beta trial.

If you are now using the Motion Monitor app on your Lumia 1520 or Lumia Icon device, it will, unfortunately, no longer be supported after updating to Lumia Cyan software.  For that reason, we will unpublish the app from Store.

As an alternative, when the Lumia Cyan software is available we recommend installing Bing Health & Fitness to record your daily step counts. (The pedometer functionality will work only after upating to Lumia Cyan software.) 

And be on the lookout for other 3rd party apps using the SensorCore technology as well.

We hope you enjoy using Health & Fitness!
