Halo View is Amazon’s new wearable fitness band with a screen

A year ago, Amazon announced its first fitness wearable, the Amazon Halo, and now it is expanding on that market with the new Halo View. Unlike the first Halo product, the Halo view has a color AMOLED display and doesn’t have any voice capabilities.

Halo View monitors the usual assortment of biometric data, including heart rate, blood oxygen level, and temperature. It can also do sleep tracking if worn at night and, of course, step counting. When paired to a phone, it can also silently alert you of notifications by way of its haptic feedback motor.

Amazon says its battery will last 7 days on a full charge. That full charge will take only 90 minutes to top off from dead. It comes with a 12-month subscription to Amazon’s new Halo fitness membership service, which will normally cost $3.99 per month. The service provides advanced features like body composition scanning, activity points system, sleep analysis, and more.

Halo View will cost $79.99, but it is not yet available to pre-order. A release date has not been given but Amazon says it will arrive before the holidays. it comes in two band sizes and there will be several band colors and materials to choose from.

    I’ll be interested in the details of what it can do without a subscription as ~$4/month is a bit much.

    Hopefully the functions that most people use don’t require the subscription. Prime members should get the advanced functions at a significantly reduced price (like $15/year).

    I am very interested in this as I have been putting off upgrading my cracked-screen-broken-Bluetooth Fitbit Charge 2 due to the expense.
