The Microsoft Band 2 may be available for pre-order now, but the company is still selling the original Microsoft Band fitness wearable on its official store site. The price of the Microsoft Band has now been lowered, most likely on a permanent basis, to $129.99 on the Microsoft Store site.
While we have seen the Microsoft Band sold at lower prices in the recent past, those were for temporary sales events. This new price on the Microsoft Store means that the Band is now being sold for $70 off the $199.99 price it had when it first launched just under a year ago. Meanwhile, pre-orders for the Microsoft Band 2 are being taken for $249.99 with shipments to begin on October 30.
