Microsoft has slashed 30% off the Band 2’s price tag, bringing it down to $174.99 from $249.99. This is an excellent piece of news for all the fitness lovers out there. The offer is valid till April 23, so if you’re planning to focus more on your health, think fast before the offer expires or the stock is depleted.
Microsoft has recently updated its Band 2 adding new useful features that allow you to better monitor your training and fitness progress. For example, the auto-pause feature enables Band 2 to pause your tracking session when it senses you’ve stopped. When you start again, the device detects motion and your session will automatically resume. Also you can now choose which notifications appear on your Band 2 so that you can go through your training without being distracted.

Back to our discount now. The discount applies to all three sizes of Band 2 but the large size band is no longer available on the Microsoft Store stock. The good news is that you can find all three sizes at Amazon for the same price tag.
