Amazon is a company known to many as one of the largest online retailers in the world. While they sell their own hardware, they are usually in the form of tablets or e-readers. However, it seems that Amazon decided to dive into the world of wearables, as the Halo Band have since announced.
As you can see in the picture, the Halo Band is not a smartwatch because there is no display. It's more like a fitness band that can track your health and fitness-related activities thanks to multiple built-in sensors. This includes an accelerometer, temperature sensor, heart rate monitor, and some microphones that you can use to talk to Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant.
While it sounds pretty simple, this is where the accompanying app and service called Halo comes in. Halo is a subscription service priced at $ 3.99 per month and gives users access to features such as body scanning, as well as the ability to measure your emotional state throughout the day by asking you to speak to it, to analyze the tone of your voice.
This sounds like pretty interesting features, and if you're interested, the Halo Band is $ 99.99. Amazon is launching the Halo Band as part of an early-access invitation-only program where those who are invited can purchase the device at an introductory price of $ 64.99, which also includes six months of free access to the Halo service from Amazon.
