Microsoft to offer Band refunds, announces end of apps and services

Microsoft announced today that it plans to terminate Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health Dashboard applications and services on May 31st. The software has already stopped the band fitness tracker for wrist wear two years ago, but the company continues to run the band app to support existing users. The app will now be removed from the Microsoft Store, Google Play, and Apple App Store after the back-end service has finished and will change on May 31.

Existing band users can export data before the end of May. Services powered by the cloud will be discontinued in June. Band users should be able to record steps, heart rate and exercise daily with activity data, sleep tracking and alarms. When a Band user resets the device, Microsoft will not be able to reset the device.

Some Microsoft Band users may receive refunds from software giants. Microsoft will require that active users who have synced the band's data to the Health Dashboard from December 1, 2018 through March 1, 2019, will file a refund for this hardware. Surprisingly, Microsoft is offering $ 79.99 for Band 1 owners and $ 175 for Band 2 devices. Your Microsoft band can also use the same refund amount if it falls within the warranty range.
