News Today coming from ZDnet reports that Microsoft is not planning to Release a Fitband 3 next Year.Microsoft has removed all references to its Band devices from its Microsoft Store listing online.The Band 2 included a barometer sensor and other updated ones, including its onboard GPS. Band 2, like Band 1, provided heart-rate monitoring, tracking for running, biking, golfing, cycling, etc., and the ability to work with Windows Phone (though not so well with Windows 10 Mobile, I’ve heard), Android, and iPhone devices.
Microsoft has been plagued by quality issues with its Band 2 devices, as the skins on more than a few users’ devices have been splitting. (Microsoft may have started fortifying the skins of Band 2 devices to try to address that issue, as noted by Windows Supersite’s Rod Trent.).The Microsoft Band 2 is Priced at $175 Until October 16 which is a $75 Markdown.
Microsoft supplied a statement to ZDNet that said that the company has sold all the Band 2 stock it produced, with no plans to manufacture more or release another Band this year: “We have sold through our existing Band 2 inventory and have no plans to release another Band device this year. We remain committed to supporting our Microsoft Band 2 customers through Microsoft Stores and our customer support channels and will continue to invest in the Microsoft Health platform, which is open to all hardware and apps partners across Windows, iOS, and Android devices.
To be Honest i had forgotten about it and you know did not really see the Geeky Looking Band 2 around being used by anyone.If you count the instagram pictures i guess it was Popular.This i guess is a perfect example of what a Flop is!!!! I guess its time to retire #Teamband.
