What do you need to know about “Microsoft Band 2″? Here are the Band 2 specs, price and release date in full detail. Read more about it in this tech news report.

So Microsoft has announced the successor of Microsoft Band, which was launched last year. And while it is wrong to compare Microsoft Band 2 and Apple Watch 2, we can’t help but see the similarities and differences of the two.


First, Microsoft Band 2 features a more curved ergonomic design as opposed to the Apple Watch. This, according to Mashable, is a significant upgrade compared to the former design, as the previous one proved to be “rigid.” It also sports a Gorilla 3 glass, not plastic. This may prove awkward for athletic people, but Microsoft claims it’s for better responsiveness to touch.

Anyone here enjoying Cortana? Like Siri on the Apple Watch, Microsoft Band 2 also has Cortana integrated for that virtual assistant you need on-the-go.

In Microsoft’s event last Tuesday, team member, Lindsey Matese, announced that users can track health data like calories and sleep in the new device, with an integration with Microsoft Health. The new model also has a barometer function. So this is good for hikers or elevator-riders.
