Microsoft Band 2 goes on sale in UK

In December, the price of the Microsoft Band 2 was discounted 50 dollars in the United States. It now appears that a similar price discount has sailed across the Atlantic and into the United Kingdom, as Microsoft is currently offering the Band for £169.99, £30 off is usual price.

If you live in the UK and would like to get a Band 2 for your own wrist, this would be the perfect opportunity to do so.  The discount applies to all sizes of the Band and even extends to pricing on Amazon UK.  You might, however, want to act fast, as Microsoft has not indicated how long the sale would last.

Microsoft has shown commitment to the Band 2, updating the Band software in December to include music controls, activity reminders, and an improved exercise tile.  The Microsoft band is focused on the fitness aspect of the wearable technology industry.  Band 2 includes GPS mapped running guides, elevation monitoring, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking and calorie counting.
