Microsoft Band 2 to remain on sale for $174.99 until July 9th
The Microsoft Band 2 sale that was supposed to expire yesterday has been expanded to July 9th. The sale price of $174.99 removes $75 from the cost of the wearable, and the discount is available from the Microsoft Store. Earlier this month, Microsoft added an "Explore" tile to the device that allows users to record the path they take when hiking, so that the trail can be explored again.

The Band 2 will also remind hikers to stay hydrated, and tracks the weather to make sure that users don't fry to a crisp under the sun's UV rays. This is also useful for bicyclists and others who like to be active outdoors. Other features found with the Explore tile include a notification that reminds users when the sun is setting. Data available includes the rate of ascent, and the user's current position in latitude and longitude. 

An update to the Windows 10  Microsoft Health app also adds things like the ability to monitor the Microsoft Health leaderboard so those using the Microsoft Band 2 can see how they rank with others of the same age and body type. The app also needs to be updated to add the Explore tile to the wearable.

If you don't own the Microsoft Band 2, there is now some extra time to pick one up for just $174.99. But don't procrastinate because July 9th will be here before you know it. If interested, click on the sourcelink.

Our Microsoft Store does not carry the Microsoft Band. Bummer.

For the first time ever, I think I'm buying a fitness tracker.
