Launched in October last year, the Microsoft Band 2 not a big sales success. But the Redmond giant is betting heavily on the product and has now launched a trade-in to try to attract new consumers.
In the program, owners of competing bracelets from Fitbit, Jawbone, Nike, Samsung, Sony and others can get a variable value from Microsoft for the purchase of Band 2. But the curious thing that the promotion even includes the Apple Watch, that doesn’t compete directly with Band.
In the case of Ma's smartwatch, Microsoft is offering up to $ 250 (!) To owners of the stainless steel model with a Milan style bracelet. The value is exactly the price of Band 2.
The program trade-in valid until February 1, only in the United States (including Puerto Rico) and Canada. In 2013, Microsoft also offered $ 200 to iPad owners; in 2014, up to $ 650 for MacBooks Air users.
We already published a review of Microsoft Band here on the website, but still from its first generation.
