Amazon introduced Halo View, a new version of your sports bracelet, which comes with great changes. The first, and most notorious, is that the device now has a screen; but it also comes accompanied by more services to exercise and have a healthy diet.
The Amazon Halo View incorporates an AMOLED panel that allows you to see the most relevant data on the physical activity of users. For example, you can review live analysis of exercise, blood oxygen level, heart rate, and sleep score, among other information. It also displays text message notifications, and includes haptic feedback.
It is worth mentioning that the Amazon Halo View includes one year of membership, and access to the new services Halo Fitness and Halo Nutrition. The first offers video workouts, Apple Fitness + style, while the second comes to provide healthy recipes and create a weekly meal plan. The nutritional service even allows you to customize the food variants, adapting them to the preferences of each user, or to specific allergies.
Amazon Halo View, the evolution of Amazon’s sports bracelet
According to Amazon, the new Halo View has a battery that lasts for seven days. It is an interesting autonomy, taking into account that the device’s sensors are capable of recording a significant amount of biometric data. In addition, a full recharge can be achieved in just 90 minutes.
The new Amazon sports bracelet comes to the market in three colors: purple, black and green. Those who wish to have more alternatives to adapt them to their style and clothing will have an important variety of bands that will be sold separately. The company promises 15 sporty designs, and other options in leather, metal and fabric.
A novel fact compared to the original model is that the Amazon Halo View does not have a microphone. This means that the device no longer interprets emotions through the voice of users. However, this feature will continue to exist (at least for now) in the Halo mobile app.
Another aspect to keep in mind is that both Halo Fitness and Halo Nutrition will also be available to those who have the original version of the bracelet. This is because both services are integrated with the app, and they are not exclusive to the new Halo View. It is worth noting that the exercise routines will arrive soon, while the healthy eating platform will be launched in January 2022.
Price and availability
The Amazon Halo View will go on sale for $ 79.99, price that includes one year of Halo membership. Once this period has expired, users must pay $ 3.99 per month to access advanced features. Sports bands will be sold from $ 14.99while the fabric, leather and metal versions will cost $ 29.99.
