Microsoft Band 2 trade-in programme. Trade In Your FitBit For The New Band
Got an existing fitness band but fancy the new Microsoft Band 2? Good news for Fitbit owners are least as Microsoft has launched a trade-in programme for the Microsoft Band 2 If you already own a first-generation Microsoft Band you can recycle yours via Microsoft to get £70 off its successor. Even better is the news that if you own a third-party fitness tracker you can also get money off.
Fitbit wearables that cost more than £99 like the Fitbit Charge and the Charge HR can be cashed in for a £50 discount.
Any other smartwatch or tracker worth upwards of £89 can be traded in for £40 off undoubtedly including the Apple Watch as well
The Microsoft Band 2 sports an improved design with a curved AMOLED display and new features, including barometer support for measuring altitude.
The trade-in programme applies to customers in the UK, where the new Band is priced at £199. More information is available on the Microsoft Store.
The Microsoft Band 2 is set to ship by November 19.
Lets hope that the reviews this time around for the Band 2 are actually reviewed properly instead of some 10 step test done on a treadmill without calibration (shame on you Neowin..)
