The Band is Very Dead

Which means it’s time for the leaks of the Microsoft Band 3, which added blood pressure monitoring, waterproofing, and other features that shored up the weaknesses and continued to lead the pack in sensor quality. It’s a pity, as I was coming up to the time I would have replaced my Band 1 with this new device. But the quality control issues in manufacturing and a slowing rate of adoption probably contributed enough to making Nadella drop the device. Of course, MS no longer has a wearable or wearable strategy after this, right at the time that Apple doubles down and Android keeps pushing into the space. Is this going to be as big as MS missing mobile completely? Probably not, but it’s another sign they aren’t willing to compete in spaces they should be in.
