Halo View by Amazon.

Amazon’s bumper crop of gadget announcements saw a massive expansion to its fitness series, Halo, with a new fitness tracker, along with a new workout service and a meal planning add-on at no extra cost. 

The Amazon Halo View (US$79.99) is a wrist-worn health metric tracker with an AMOLED display and haptic feedback functionality. It provides metrics to activity, sleep, blood oxygen, live workout via multiple built-in sensors. These features are on top of its integrated text and move notifications.

As a device, it has up to seven days of battery life, yet it can achieve a full charge in 90 minutes. Halo View was also built to be swim-proof and lightweight, with three sport band colours (Active Black, Sage Green, Lavender Dream) to match.

Amazon also launched Halo Fitness and Halo Nutrition alongside the Halo View. Both fitness-related services and plans come with the Halo View and do not come at extra costs.

Halo Fitness offers studio-quality workouts guided by Amazon’s select group of coaches. At launch, users can pick between cardio, strength, yoga, outdoor, and mobility classes. The service pairs with both Halo View and Halo Band, reflecting real-time metrics during exercise.

Halo Nutrition.

Halo Nutrition is a meal planning service that personalises and discovers appropriate recipes for healthier, nutritious eating. Users can customise their diets by indicating preferences like allergies or requirements. By default, it has seven types of menus (classic, keto, Mediterranean, Nordic, paleo, vegan, and vegetarian). The library has 500 recipes at the moment, with more to come. Halo Nutrition is also integrated with Alexa Shopping list to aid with grocery shopping.

As mentioned, the Halo View is US$79.99. It’s available on the Amazon webstore, with each sports band going at S$14.99. Fabric, leather, and metal bands are S$29.99 each. Halo Fitness is live, but Halo Nutrition starts only in January 2022.
