Microsoft offers refunds for Band users, kills Health Dashboard apps and services

Washington: Microsoft has announced that it is putting to rest its Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health Dashboard apps and services. The services will be defunct on May 31, 2019.

Although Microsoft discontinued its Band fitness trackers more than two years ago, it kept the related apps active to support existing users. On May 31, the backend services will end and the apps will be removed from the Microsoft Store, Google Play, and Appleā€™s App Store, The Verge reported.

If you are an existing Band user, you will be able to export your data before the end of May. Some of the Microsoft Band users will also be eligible for a refund.

Active users who have synced data from a Band tracker to Health Dashboard between December 1st, 2018 and March 1st, 2019 can apply for a refund on their hardware. A refund of USD 79.99 will be available for Band 1 owners, and USD 175 for Band 2 owners.
