Microsoft Band is a smart band with smartwatch features created and developed by Microsoft. It was announced on October 29, 2014. The Microsoft Band incorporates fitness tracking and health-oriented capabilities and integrates with Windows Phone, iOS, and Android smartphones through a Bluetooth connection.
The Microsoft Band was announced by Microsoft on October 29, 2014 and released in limited quantities in the US the following day. The Band was initially sold exclusively on the Microsoft Store's website and retail locations and due to its unexpected demand and popularity, was sold out on the first day it was released and in short supply over the 2014 holiday shopping season.
Production and availability was ramped up in March 2015, several months after the release of Android Wear but ahead of the Apple Watch. Availability was expanded in US to include retailers Best Buy, Target, and Amazon. On April 15, 2015, the Microsoft Band was released in the UK priced at £169.99 and available for purchase through Microsoft Store, or from select partners.
