In an ideal world, you would be the picture of health: eight hours of restful sleep each night, a morning meditation routine, a personalized exercise program and a daily menu of balanced meals. But that’s real life, and it’s filled with stresses, distractions, and other aspects of the human experience that diminish your quality of life.

Our modern world can present many obstacles to developing healthy habits, but luckily it also offers some pretty brilliant solutions. Example : Amazon Halo Strips, which just had a mega sale ahead of Prime Day! Right now, you can score one for $45, down from $100 — that’s a nice 52% off. These gadgets basically play the role of doctor, nurse, personal trainer, chef, life coach and spiritual guru. The chic and light bracelets monitor everything from your heart rate to weight fluctuations to sleep patterns.

You may have heard of the Halo strip; it is a powerhouse for heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, activity monitoring, BMI measurement and voice analysis. But because it doesn’t have a digital display, it doesn’t send you alerts and reminders. You must log in to your Halo Subscription to see your health overview and unlock a suite of tools and information.

Yes, the same Halo subscription works with the chic silver, black, or blush/rose gold Halo Band, and when you buy this unassuming fitness tracker — on sale in this Prime Day deal for just $45 — you get a free subscription of six months ! It’s only $4 a month going forward to access popular apps like Headspace and Relax Melodies for meditation, Apativ and Orangetheory for sweat sessions, or Weight Watchers Reimagined for weight loss and nutrition.

Shoppers say the waterproof, Alexa-enabled Halo Bands (with over 10,000 five-star reviews, btw) outshine the competition.

“There are no screens, so it’s not distracting. I can wear it all day and all night with no problem,” wrote one astute fan. “It helps me track my sleep, unlike my Apple Watch or FitBit. The tone feature is what blew me away. I had no idea how I sound when I talk, and I love it the fact that it can pick up on that and guide me on how I sound.

“Sleep monitoring is more informative and accurate than Apple Watch or Fitbit. Halo Band’s time readings are perfect night after night – I know that because I’ve monitored and compared” another customer wrote.

This customer loves how easy it is to wear her Halo Band: “It’s EXTREMELY lightweight making it easy to wear day or night,” the fan says. “I appreciate not having my phone calls and texts logged in, so I’m not that worried about what’s going on in the cellular world.”

If you have Amazon Premier, you will of course benefit from free delivery. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your 30 day free trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Who knew staying in shape could be child’s play? Prime Day might be a few weeks away, but consider it a real treat to score the Halo Band for such a low price upfront. The bird in advance catches the worm!
