    Band 2 is coming, they are talking about it at IFA (An annual industrial expo in Germany) this week.

    Here's a recent WC Article: Microsoft's Kevin Turner confirms that Band 2 is in the works | Windows Central

    Band 1 supply was pretty limited, Band 2 should be more widely available. No doubt about it, Band is the most compatible wearable for Windows Phone users...

    Who is planning on getting Band 2???

    They're talking about it already? I figured the announcement was due up in October.

    But I am likely going to get this one. I passed on the first due to cost. But I think i'll be ready to jump on it this time!

    I may have misspoken about the IFA... I got a bit excited populating forums and did a copy/paste. LOL

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Definitely thinking about it, if they manage to slim it down, make it waterproof (enough to go swimming), and it looks good enough to wear daily, I'll probably buy it. Will probably upgrade my 635 to a 640 at the same time.

    I've been trying to convince my wife to let me get her a Band1 for months and now she's finaaly coming round to the idea I'm holding back to see what the Band2 may offer.

    Either way I think I know what her Xmas present may be this year.

    Most likely as I already liked what I saw with the first one, though now with the refinements that are to come I have a good feeling about v2.

    I plan to. I hope it comes a little closer to looking like a real watch. My wife loves the Apple Watch design (although not the price). I'm hoping they get close enough to that look/feel that she'll go for the Microsoft Band 2.

    I don't mind that it may look like a sports band and not an actual watch.

    it might seem silly, but I wear an analogue watch, but on my other wrist I have my band. if the new band looks like a watch, then ill look silly(er) with two watches on..........

    Definitely Band 2. But I don't like the new phones. I want a flagship not bigger than 4.5 inch

    Absolutely. I've loved Band 1, and the new renders that appeared look great. In appearance, the curved glass is a lot sleeker look.

    I have a Band and I'm more curious on what new features it provides besides a sleeker and more curved design. It all depends on what it has to offer. Till Oct. 6th

    I am getting 2. I purposely skipped the first generation. 1520 & v2 for me, not interested in 950

    I'll skip a new phone and get the band 2.0 :D Only skipped out on 1, because of availability and the build of it was kind of weird (for me) lol

    The big selling point for me would be if it can control music apps on iPhone or Android phone. I'm holding off buying the Huawei Watch until I learn if Band 2 can do that.

    This is likely what I will drop the hammer on next. I can't quite afford/justify the Lumia 950 or XL, and have to pay off my last trip to the States before I can dive into a replacement for my aging i3 Laptop (likely Surface Pro 4). But I have been sporting the MS Band since day 1 and love it. Looking for a better form factor, hopefully more durable screen (though mine has always been protected and is near pristine), and maybe some updates to Health, etc.

    If it comes out in Singapore, then I will get 1. I have a wearables itch that I can't really scratch because of my chosen platform.
