Amazon.com Inc. today jumped into the fitness band market with Halo, a subscription service and fitness band of the same name that is designed to help customers improve their health.
Amazon Halo combines a suite of artificial intelligence-powered health features, including the Amazon Halo App and the Amazon Halo band. That band uses multiple advanced sensors to provide highly accurate health information, the company said. The band stands out from the competition by having no screen, an arguably bold move that Amazon pitches as being comfortable, stylish and distraction-free.
On the tech side, the Halo Band includes an accelerometer, a temperature sensor, a heart rate monitor, two microphones, an LED indicator light and a button to turn the microphones on or off, among other functions. Along with being water-resistant, the device sports a battery that lasts up to seven days and charges in under 90 minutes. For those who like
