Microsoft Band removed from sale

Microsoft could be positioning to kill of its Band line of fitness trackers.

As 3 October, the company has removed all references to Band devices from its online store.

A Microsoft spokesperson told ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley it has sold through its existing Band 2 stock and had no plans to release a new 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," the spokesperson said.

Microsoft has also removed the Band software development kit. According to ZDNet, Microsoft may have disbanded the team that was working on a version of Windows 10 for the band several months ago.

The Band 2 went on sale on 12 November in Australia for $379. The device is also sold at Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and Rebel Sport.
