It’s not clear how many Microsoft Band units were slotted for online sale but in less than 24 hours since the product launched, Microsoft’s SmartWatch has sold out in all wrist sizes online on the Microsoft Store Website. This is perhaps a positive sign that consumers are very excited about this new device and Microsoft has not anticipated such response.
Official statement on Microsoft store website says “Sold out due to overwhelming demand, find Microsoft Band at your local Microsoft Store.”
Today, also there were many reports of huge lineups at Microsoft retail locations across the U.S. as people were eager to get their hands on the Microsoft Band. We got ours and we’re working on a couple reviews so keep an eye out for that!
We’re not sure yet when Microsoft will release more Bands for sale online but we’ll keep you posted so stay tuned if you haven’t gotten yours yet. As a side note, we learned today that Microsoft is likely not going to release the Band device to any international markets for a while.
