Do not cancel the Microsoft Band

This petition had 1,066 supporters

Recent development reported by Mary Jo Foley and official Microsoft statement implies, that the Microsoft Band lineup is going to be canceled and we will not see any future Microsoft Band devices.

This comes as a shock and great disappointment to many happy Microsoft Band users, Microsoft fans and all those that were patiently awaiting the release of Microsoft Band 3 with Windows 10 IoT and water-resistance.

Microsoft Band is the perfect match for active people with amazing and unmatched fitness capabilities and the world-class support and integration on all mobile and desktop platforms. With powerful connection to the Microsoft Health platform, Microsoft Band is a truly unique and one-of-a-kind experience for its users.

The second generation has been a great improvement over the first release and many users have been waiting to buy the third. I have seen a plenty of Android and even iOS users that forgo the fitness offerings of their own manufacturer and instead went to buy the Microsoft Band, which definitely offers the best value and most advanced features. The device has become an integral part of the life of thousands of people.

We would like to ask you to reconsider this step and instead focus on the potential of the device, the importance of the wearable market and the fact that this device acts as a key element of the Microsoft ecosystem and many people are getting healthier and more active with it every day.

When Satya Nadella became the CEO of Microsoft, he shared with us the mission of new Microsoft:

Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. We have unique capability in harmonizing the needs of both individuals and organizations. This is in our DNA. We also deeply care about taking things global and making a difference in lives and organizations in all corners of the planet.

We think Microsoft Band is a key part of this noble mission. Please, help us be more active, healthy and productive. Do not stop the development of best fitness device on the market. We love it more than you imagine.
