Want a Microsoft Band 2 discount? Trade in your old Fitbit

Microsoft just announced the Band 2, the company's second attempt at a wearable, and it looks to be a much better fit for your wrist than the original with a gorgeous AMOLED display and better design. But it doesn't come cheap.

In fact it's near smartwatch-level pricing – in the UK it costs £199 but the original was also expensive at £169.

But if you live in the UK and you've got another fitness wearable to trade in you'll be able to get a discount from the Microsoft store

Cheaper fitness

You can trade in your Microsoft Band for a discount of £70 off the new version. You can also trade in a Fitbit (that originally cost £99 or more) for a £50 discount or any other smartwatch or wearable (that cost £89 or more) for £40.

At the moment it's a UK exclusive deal on the Microsoft Store and there's no word for the US.

You can use the website to claim the money back on a pre-order - you just need to sign up, send it in and wait to receive your reward.
