Technology companies continue to push wearables as fitness tracking and info glancing gadgets of the future, but are they catching on? The Microsoft Band has been out for three months now and has seen little change in terms of features or future potential. The Raspberry Pi 2 will run Windows 10 and this will enable makers to leverage the power of Windows on the cheap, but could the Microsoft Band be a Windows 10 Internet of Things device too? We don’t know.
In a recent post on Lumia Conversations blog the Microsoft Band gets broken down into its sensors to show off how capable the tiny device is. However the blog post fails to mention CPU, RAM, or any future capabilities of the device. Will Windows 10 for IoT devices breath new life into the Microsoft Band? No one knows. Is Microsoft selling a large amount of these devices or is the supply just so low that the online store will never have any in stock? Again, we don’t know.
The Microsoft Band continues its path in the orphaned children of Microsoft products which doesn’t fit into Windows, Xbox, or the cloud. So what does the future hold for the Microsoft Band?
