Microsoft Band 2 Specs

Microsoft announced an all-new Microsoft Band on stage during its Windows 10 Devices event in NY. The new Microsoft Band 2 brings curves to the band to make it fit better, a barometer to measure your altitude and a number of other changes as well. The metal wraps around to the back of the band, leaving no hard corners, and the front is now covered by Corning's Gorilla Glass 3.

Additionally, Microsoft announced a number of new partnerships for the new band. Some of these include Uber, Lose It, and many others. The Microsoft Band 2 will begin shipping on October 30 and is priced at $249.
