Microsoft-Band_Hero_2-640x463There is still a few more weeks to go until Christmas and if you were thinking about getting your hands on the Microsoft Band either for yourself or for someone else, you will be pleased to learn that Microsoft has recently announced via Twitter that they have more units in stock of the Microsoft Band at their retail stores in the US.

It seems that the replenishment of stock is only applied to their brick and mortar stores, so if you were thinking about getting it online, perhaps going to a Microsoft store might be a better idea. This follows a recent announcement a couple of weeks ago in which Microsoft announced that stock for the Microsoft Band was low and remained sold out.

Microsoft suggested that customers try their luck at their retail stores but made no guarantees, but with the latest tweet, it looks like your luck at the Microsoft store will be substantially greater. Alternatively you could always call your local store to see if they have units in stock, lest you end up making a wasted trip.

The Microsoft Band has proven itself to be quite a hit and a surprising one. The device is priced at $199 and comes loaded with health features that can also be found on other fitness trackers. It also has the ability to track your heart rate and sports a sleek and simple design which we reckon helped with its appeal. So, will you be picking up one for yourself?
