Last year's Microsoft Band was a very functional fitness tracker and one of the few that works with all three major smartphone platforms. However, the device sorely lacked in terms of visual appeal and not something you'd want to be seen wearing all the time.
The second generation model seems to fix that. The new band has a much thinner profile with a curved display and metallic accents on the side, all of which looks less chunky and curvier than before.
There is no word on what else has changed besides the design but Microsoft has a hardware event lined up for October 6 so you can be sure to find out more about the Band 2 then.
awosome watch and great brand i have been always loving microsoft
I think its great that Microsoft is doing another watch because the first one not that great. But wish the second could be like an Samsung watch though.
Samsung made the first Oblong-face smartwatch. Microsoft is taking the design language similarly. It look everything like Gear Fit in a way. http://www.action-mobile.com/image/data/samsung/gear%20fit/Samsung_Gear_Fit_54622f6893f2e.jpg
