For the past 7 months (minus 1.5 months due to repairs – on the MS Band 2), I have worn both the Microsoft Band 2 and the Apple Watch. This is my fourth Band and I’m done. I declare the Apple Watch the winner! Microsoft needs to get out of the wearable device market.
The band is too uncomfortable to wear with the display up so I, like many others, wear (wore) it display-side down. This is the second cracked display within a month. I assume it is because of typing and the display hitting the table. It also failed with a battery that would not recharge and a wristband that cracked 75% of the way across.
Worse, it is not even waterproof and cannot be exposed to soapy water. It’s too much to keep taking it on and off which should not need to happen for something that is supposed to continually monitor your activity.
I’m done with you, Band 2.
