Last week, Microsoft unveiled a range of new hardware at its Windows 10 Devices event in New York City. Alongside the Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagships, and its new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book, the company also revealed the Band 2, its second-generation health- and fitness-focused wearable device.
With all this new hardware on the way, Microsoft is already working to clear stocks of its existing devices. In addition to significant discounts on its Surface Pro 3, Microsoft has also slashed the cost of its first-gen Band, which is now available in the US for half of its original price.
After cutting $70 off the Band's $199.99 list price at the end of last week, the Microsoft Store has now extended that discount further: the device is currently on sale for just $99.99.
That's a lot less than the $249.99 price tag of the Band 2 - but the newer device of course includes features that its predecessor lacks. Be sure to check out our hands-on first impressions of the Band 2, including some observations on how it compares with the original.
