    With the heavy support from M$ for the FitBit production since years on the M$ store... i was thinking that M$ have already killed those band.

    I didn't even know they had such a thing. I don't use such a thing, so that might explain it. But I'm sure if I ask people I know, they wouldn't have noticed m$ wearables.

    Smart watches and fitness trackers pretty much are already taken up by Apple and Fitbit. Others try, but realistically these markets are really small and niche anyways.

    Oh well I wouldn't say it's a small or niche market, every sucker I know that claims to be sporty in their free time is running around with such a thing, and a lot of others have them too because they're cool (smart watches specifically).
    I personally don't see the appeal, but out of 6 younger coworkers, 5 got a wearable...
