The Microsoft Band 2 arrived on the market with a $249 price tag. The fitness band dropped to $199.99 earlier this month, but some consumers may still view this as too steep a price to pay for what hasn't been a popular fitness band (compared to Fitbit, that is). Well, you'll be pleased to know that you can get the Microsoft Band 2 for just $174.99, but there are some caveats with this new price drop.
First, you can only get this price drop on the Microsoft Band 2 from Best Buy and Microsoft's very own Microsoft Store (not anywhere else at the moment, from what we know). Next, this price drop isn't permanent; Microsoft will increase the price back to $249.99 on March 26th, so you have about 3 weeks to take advantage of this price drop. If you really want this fitness band or are curious and don't want to pay $250 for it, it may be best to jump on this deal now.
Microsoft has continued to update the device, bringing new features to the fitness band such as a GPS Power Saver Mode and new weight tracking, as well as a Tournament Mode for Golf, Guided Workouts, and Cortana integration (voice integration for Windows Phone users only), so Microsoft Band 2 buyers are getting a smart fitness band that is far more capable than the device was at the time of its market arrival. Slowly, the Band 2 is getting a price that's just as formidable.
