Microsoft has today confirmed that its fitness tracker, the Microsoft Band, will be available in the UK from April 15 and will cost £169.99.

First launched in the US in October, the company said that as well as bringing it to Blighty, the band will be offered more widely within the US and from a greater range of retailers.

Potential UK purchasers can’t walk out of a shop with one just yet, but in a little under a month they will be able to. If you’re keen enough to pre-order the device in the UK, that will be possible from today (although it isn’t at the time of writing) either directly from Microsoft or via retailers like Amazon.
