Since day one, the Microsoft Band has been a hit, so much so, that the fitness and health device seems to be selling out very quickly. However, after a while inventory of the wearable seems to be getting back online.
Alongside the new online stock, Microsoft is also partnering with 765 Best Buy stores across the U.S., to start selling the Band. Although, there is not a specific day when this will happen, it will occur sometime in March. Windows Central confirmed from new information obtained from internal documents unveiling details.
According to the same report, the electronic retailer will include the wearable on its extensive smartwatch display area, with a fully functional Band that consumers will be able to their hands on, before buying. Best Buy also will carry all three sizes: small, medium, and large.
As part of employee training, the retailer will require to watch: Meet Microsoft Band, Selling Microsoft Band, and Meet Microsoft Health videos.
Up until now, the Microsoft Store was the only outlet to get one of the wearable, which made it a little difficult for consumers to test the device before buying. Inventory has also been an issue for the company, but the move to use Best Buy makes sense to reach more people, as the company already have a partnership with the electronic retailer to feature Surface Pro 3 and other Windows devices.
Interesting enough, we’re hearing about new stock of the Microsoft Band, just before the Apple event, where we’re expecting to hear about pricing and availability of the Apple Watch.
