Microsoft Band Price Drops To $129 Ahead Of Band 2 Launch

Microsoft Band

Ahead of the Band 2 launch later this month, Microsoft has now officially slashed the price of original Microsoft Band to just $129.99. While Microsoft Band 2 is a significant improvement over the previous model, it comes with a high price tag of $249. For $129, I think Microsoft Band still offers great value to users. Also, none of the fitness trackers currently in the market offers the features available in the Band for $129.

Microsoft Band helps you achieve your wellness goals by tracking your heart rate, steps, calorie burn and sleep quality, and makes you more productive with email previews and calendar alerts at a glance.
