Microsoft first introduced the Microsoft Band in late 2014, but it is slowly being eliminated from existence. Today, Microsoft has removed every Microsoft Band model from its Online Store, as well as removing the Band Software Development Kit.
 
A Microsoft representative said to ZDNet that they have sold out of all of their Band 2 inventory and that they don’t have any plans to release a new wearable device this year.
“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.”
 
After the Microsoft Band’s release in 2014, Microsoft continued to develop the wearable device and released a second-generation in October 2015. The successor included an optical heart rate monitor, an accelerometer and a gyroscope for measuring movement, GPS, skin temperature sensors and more for $250.
 
The device received negative reviews for its price tag, battery life, design and lack of utility. Although Microsoft did attempt an Apple Watch trade-in program, it failed to continue with other fitness trackers and wearable devices.
 
ZDNet previously shared some information suggesting Microsoft separated the team that was working on bringing Windows 10 to the Microsoft Band, and they have relocated some of the hardware team as well. Sources have told ZDNet that Microsoft is planning to eliminate the wearable device and there aren’t any plans on developing a Band 3.
