Is Microsoft Leaving the Wearable Market?

Anyone who may have expected the release of a Microsoft Volume 3 at the end of this year must be disappointed. As the computer company announces, 2016 definitely no third generation of the fitness bracelet is sent into the race. Rather, there are some indications that Microsoft might be able to withdraw a bit from the market for Wearables – similar to what the company has already done with regard to the Lumia smartphones. Nevertheless, the American company does not give a fundamental refusal that fitness bracelets will be developed and manufactured in the future. But what is the fact: Concrete preparations for a successor to Microsoft Volume 2 have not yet been made.

In the course of this report, it has also become public that at least the intention was to develop a possible Microsoft Volume 3 with Windows 10 as an operating system. A team of IT experts had worked on this, but this was resolved because of a lack of success. On the first two market-driven fitness trackers of the US company runs an in-house firmware, which is compatible with all smartphone operating systems – from iOS over Android and self-explaining also with Windows Phone. However, this is not based on the classic Windows software.

A current advantage of the Microsoft Volume 2 released in the US about a year ago could also indicate a sale. If it cost $ 250 to the release date, it is currently priced at $ 175. In principle, Wearable, which is related to sales figures, has remained below its expectations. One reason for this is the fact that Microsoft has only concentrated on a few markets and, for example, never offered the tracker in Germany. The interested parties here are usually dependent on imports from other countries, especially England.

However, a definite departure from the wearable market is not yet foreseen. As Microsoft clarifies, the band 2 will continue to be driven in the future. In addition, the company wanted to research new possibilities in the wearable sector. The health platform, where not only Windows users can evaluate their fitness and health data, the company also continues to operate in the future as usual.
