Microsoft will unveil a new fitness tracker at the October 6 event. Now images of the Microsoft Band 2 leak reveal a new design.

Microsoft sold out of the original Microsoft Band fitness tracker at launch last year. The reason was likely very limited stock. It appeared Microsoft was not sure if the Band would be successful. On October 6 Microsoft will unveil new hardware including the Microsoft Band 2.

A Spanish blog has leaked images of the Microsoft Band over the weekend. The major new thing is a curved display. The original Band had a flat screen.

The curved screen make the new Band 2 more elegant. There are also new hardware buttons on the side of the metallic finished screen frame. According to Spanish Microsoft Insider the internal codename of the Band 2 is Envoy. Microsoft has added a new sensor to measure altitude. The Microsoft Band 2 will be able to track stair climbing or the achieved altitudes in runs.

An Altitude sensor is a big feature missing in the Apple Watch. My Apple Watch can't even consistently tell if I am sitting or standing. It is very likely that the Apple Watch 2 will have such a sensor like the upcoming Band 2.

Microsoft is supposed to add new regions to roll out the new Microsoft Band 2. The original Band had a rather limited roll-out with the United States and UK.

We can't say anything about the track record of the Spanish Microsoft Insider site, but the images look very legit.

Besides the Microsoft Band 2, the October 6 event is supposed to bring the Surface Pro 4 and the new Lumia 950 Windows 10 smartphones.
