The first is an all-new fitness device in Amazon’s Halo lineup called the Halo Rise. The next unreleased addition is an update to Amazon’s car-centric Echo Auto device.

Amazon announces Echo Auto — Their first Alexa device for your car

Amazon has announced the Echo Auto as their first device to add Alexa to your car. It’s a relatively tiny device that sits on your dash and provides hands-free Alexa capabilities through its array of 8 microphones.
