What comes next after the Band for Microsoft?

Is the death of the Band the end of wearables for Microsoft? Maybe not.
The Microsoft Band is dead. Microsoft is no longer working on any new Band products internally, any Band 3 developments have been canceled, and there will not be a Band 3 release. That's sad news, but that's not the whole story.
There's been a lot of misinformation going around regarding the Band 3 and whether it has actually been killed. Going off what's been said internally, Microsoft has canceled plans to release the Band 3. No longer are Microsoft actively working on new prototypes or testing any new features for a new Band. There are many reasons as to why it has been canceled, but the reason I hear the most is because Microsoft couldn't get Windows 10 running on it.
