    Rumors claim Microsoft has a big launch event in NYC for October.

    I had hoped it would be a little sooner than that.

    Saw that on CNET as well. Hey, October's not that far away! Fingers crossed for something really awesome!

    zdnet is reporting the same thing, although the band reference seems a little less certain than the surface pro 4 and phone announcements.

    Although the original didn't work out for me, I expect to get a Band 2.

    If it has the same battery limitations I will just not wear it at night and charge it then. Looking forward to it !

    I'm looking forward to it as well. Does anyone know whether having the MS complete for Band 1 makes it easier/cheaper to upgrade? I think the answer is probably no unless you're willing to bend the rules, but a guy can hope.

    Another Sports band ? When will we see a WATCH, not a fitness watch ?

    At least I have my Pebble steel working for the time being...

    Since I bought it the day it came out, I'm hoping they'll throw us early adopters a bone.

    I hope this iteration looks a little more like a watch...

    Yup. Honestly, I probably would have purchased this defunct Nokia Moonraker. The Microsoft Band didn't appeal to me.

    Same here. I would've gotten the Gen1 Moonraker hands down! But if the Band 2 is all we're offered, I'll take it...

    A couple of thoughts, I've heard the rumor that there will be a big MSFT announcement in October, but that doesn't mean all new platforms will be released in Oct. It seems like at least one phone would be a natural, as well as the Surface Pro4. Maybe the Band 2, hopefully. As for more watch-like, MSFT has been pretty careful not to call the Band 1 a watch, or smart-watch, or even a sports-watch. They seem pretty focused on 'sport-band' for their niche. I guess we'll find out in a couple of months.

    I'm seeing reports that the Band 2 will be shown in the big event October 6th, but release date is "early November".

    What to expect from Microsoft's Windows 10 devices event in NYC

    I'm trying to remember - is my MS Complete good for 12 months or 13?

    So far it's been suggested that Band 2 will be at the same price point of the first one - which was $199. (Band 1 is currently on sale - probably to close out the inventory.)
