According to leaked internal documents picked up by Windows Central, Best Buy will begin selling the Microsoft Band at 765 U.S. stores towards the end of this month. The retailer is yet to confirm the report, but it has been building a greater smartwatch and fitness tracker presence in its stores. It is thought that live demonstrations of the Microsoft Band will be given in stores, writes Jared Newman of PC World.
