You could get yourself a Microsoft Band 2 for free if you’re prepared to trade in your Apple Watch.
Microsoft has introduced a new “trade-in and trade up” scheme to get you buying the Band 2, and while it does include a number of different smartwatches and fitness wearables from other companies, an Apple Watch could get you up to $250.
Nike, Sony and Fitbit wearables eligible for trade-in, along with the older Microsoft Band, but the amount of money you get back ranges from only $10 up to $75.
An Apple Watch with a stainless steel case and a Milanese Loop band will get you $250 – which just so happens to be the same price as an Band 2.
The stainless steel Apple Watch with a rubber band version in white can get you $200 and an Apple Watch Sport with an aluminum case and a blue strap will get you $150.
The offer is valid up until February 7 for those in the US and Canada, and all you need to do is head here to see if your wearable is eligible, click on it if you want to trade it in and fill out a very short form.
The website will let you know how much credit you’ll get in return for the trade-in, and you’ll receive a redeemable voucher to go towards the Band 2.
