This past October Microsoft introduced its latest wearable, the Microsoft Band 2. In the world of wearable technology, Microsoft has set itself apart by focusing on the fitness aspect of this technology. Offering users a plethora of functions from GPS mapped running guides, elevation monitoring, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, calorie counting, Guided Workouts, bike routes, oxygen level monitoring and more. These features give the Microsoft Band 2 arguably the biggest option set of any fitness-related wearable on the market today.
With additional abilities like call notification, Cortana integration, email notifications, alarms, music controls, text alerts, the Microsoft Band 2 can easily adapt to an entire day of activities. Add in its ability to work across all mobile operating systems (Windows phone, iOS and Android), with the Microsoft Health app, and you have one of the few pieces of wearable technology that can follow our own tech habits and changes.
Currently, Amazon is offering this amazing piece of technology for a reduced price. When the Band 2 launched, it carried with it a price hike to $249.99, up from the original Band’s price of $199.99. Today, the price of the Band 2 is only $199.99 at Amazon. With a savings of $50, this price reflects that of the original Band and comes in at a great time for holiday shopping. The extra savings can be used for accessories like the Band Charging Stand, Screen Protectors or additional charging cables.health and fitness, Microsoft, Microsoft Band, Microsoft Band 2, Windows
