Listings for the Microsoft Band 2 fitness wearable have been removed from Microsoft Store sites worldwide. Microsoft has confirmed that they have sold through their current Band 2 inventory and also state they have no plans to release a Band 3 device in 2016.
The Microsoft Band 2 listing has been removed from the "Devices" top menu on the Microsoft Store sites in the U.S. Canada, the UK and Australia. Searching for the Band 2 on those sites also does not bring up its store listing anymore. The company still has a website for the Band 2 itself, but clicking on the "Buy Now" link to the Microsoft Store simply takes you to the front page of the site.
ZDNet got a statement from Microsoft about the removal of the Band 2 from its store sites:
"We have sold through our existing Band 2 inventory and have no plans to release another Band device this year. We remain committed to supporting our Microsoft Band 2 customers through Microsoft Stores and our customer support channels and will continue to invest in the Microsoft Health platform, which is open to all hardware and apps partners across Windows, iOS, and Android devices."
ZDNet adds that it has received reports that the Microsoft Band 2 is also being removed from some of Microsoft's brick-and-mortar retail locations. Listings for the Band 2 have also been taken down from Dell and Best Buy's retail sites, but it is important to note that other online retailers, like Amazon, are still selling the Microsoft Band 2.
