Fitness trackers

Amazon’s Halo fitness trackers go on sale for the start of Prime Day

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. Amazon’s Halo View fitness trackers essentially take on the role of doctor, nurse, personal trainer, chef, life coach, and spiritual guru, monitoring everything from your heart rate to weight fluctuations to sleep patterns. And—surprise! — they’re on massive sale right now, in honor of Alexa’s eighth birthday. Halo Views truly represents the best that fitness trackers have to offer.

Handy gadget tracks your physical activity, amount of sleep and quality, blood oxygen level, BMI (the tracker scans your body to measure it!) and much more to record invaluable data. This all appears in a health summary that you can view at any time on a color OLED screen – the real selling point – on the band’s face, which comes in lavender, green or black.

This next-level device really has your back. It offers live workout tracking, sends important reminders to stick to your health goals, or just encourages you to get your butt moving, whether that means taking 10,000 steps or swimming 10 laps. It’s totally customizable, of course. And it even lets you know if a text has arrived while you’re otherwise engaged.

Users need a Halo Subscription use their fitness tracker — it’s where they see their health status and are introduced to a whole host of tools and information. The good news is that when you get this Halo view, you get a full-access Halo subscription for an entire year for free. After that, it’s only $4 a month.

A Halo Subscription allows you to view all your personal statistics. It features nutrition programs, recipes, hundreds of on-demand workouts, mindfulness sessions, daily meditations, and voice analysis to help you communicate better…it’s hard to think what this thing can not help. You can even shower and swim up to 50 meters – so unless you’re planning on scuba diving, you’re good to go!

And because it’s an Amazon product, Halo View connects to Alexa and integrates seamlessly into your smart home setup. Add battery power to the list of conveniences, too: it works for seven days on a full charge, which only takes two hours.

In many ways, this fitness tracker does the same job. It is also a powerhouse for heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, activity monitoring, BMI measurement and voice analysis.

$70 on Amazon

You may have heard of the Halo strip; it’s the predecessor to View 2020 and a best-seller in its own right. One major difference is that it doesn’t have a digital display, so 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 $70 fitness tracker, you get a free six-month subscription! 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.

And yes, this one is also waterproof and Alexa compatible. Buyers have had over a year to test the Halo Band, and it has earned over 10,000 five-star reviews – fans say these devices 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.”
