    Prices are coming down, and I'm thinking about getting one. Is it still worth it to pick up a used one?

    Original Band
    A used MS band: since it's used battery life will not be the best. Certain features won't be there compared with the band 2. However, some users have reported that the band 2 has material issues where the strap part can break. At least the band 1 is reliable

    My band 1 keeps disintegrating within 8 months, it was replaced and has now fallen apart again :(

    Hit or miss on getting a new Band 1 as it does miss features and Band 2 keeps going down in price. Also the build quality is a little low (make sure to get protectors for over the battery covers at the least)

    Now a used Band 1, or any skin contact fitness device for that matter, I would never get. It's pressed up against the person for 20+ hours a day, 7 days a week, whether they're doing daily tasks or sweating up a storm. I know my Band rubber seems to absorb the sweat and sweat smell and even with an alcohol cleaning it can still be there... from a hygienic point I would not get a used one.
