Last week we posted a story about Argos selling the original Microsoft Band for the bargain basement price of £99.99. That’s now been eclipsed by Microsoft itself. The original Band is now for sale through the online Microsoft Stor
e for £69.99, a saving of exactly £100. Microsoft is also including a free screen protector (worth £9.99) to try and tempt you. If you decide the original is not for you and you really fancy the second generation band, you can always part-exchange it via the Microsoft website, making 1p profit in the process.
As a reminder, the original Band is packed with a variety of sensors:
Optical heart rate sensor
Ambient light sensor
Skin temperature sensor
Galvanic skin response
It works with Windows Phone, Android and iOS and also serves up smart notifications.
Details of the deal are here.
