At $99.99 the Microsoft Band is an interesting deal as the Band offers a comprehensive feature set for most users including GPS tracking. Best Buy offers the Large, Medium and Small versions of the Microsoft Band today only at the $99.99 price.

The price on Amazon for the Microsoft Band is at around $140. 

Yesterday images of the Microsoft Band 2 have leaked. The new Band has a curved screen and has more sophisticated overall design. The new features include an altimeter as additional sensor.
