Whether you're working to keep New Year's resolutions or getting ready for spring, Microsoft has tech to help you get fit, keep you connected with friends and family, and stay motivated to achieve your goals. Microsoft invites users to explore the company's top tech tips and product picks this season, including Surface, Windows 8 PCs, Windows Phones, Xbox 360, Kinect, Office 365 Home Premium, Bing and Skype. Microsoft sets its sights on enterprise customers both on the job and off, with "consumer" products such as Xbox and Kinect, as well as Windows Phone technology for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) users. Hot mobile apps help you with workouts and training. For instance, Runtastic apps run on Windows Phone. Runtastic offers products and services that all focus on gathering and managing sports data to motivate people to do sports and to link like-minded people. With the Nike+ Kinect Training system, users can get personalized training, measure their fitness and socially connect with friends across Nike+ and Xbox communities around the world.
