Microsoft Band for $199

Microsoft Corp launched a device called “Microsoft Band” that will allow users to monitor their fitness and exercise regime, marking the world’s largest software company’s debut into the wearable technology market, Reuters said. The wrist-worn device has sensors that monitor pulse rate, measure calorie burn and track sleep quality, Microsoft said in a blog post. Microsoft said the device will be available in the US in limited quantities from Thursday for $199. Apple unveiled a smart watch on September 9 that will combine health and fitness tracking with communications for $349 and will go on sale in early 2015.
