Amazon Halo review: Affordable but questionable fitness band

 

Amazon's affordable Halo fitness band offers unique features not seen on other fitness wearables, but some of these metrics raise serious privacy concerns.

Slim, lightweight design ; Informative Sleep score ; Accurate body fat scan ; Lab integration

Subscription to access all features ; Questionable privacy

Amazon Halo Review

 

Lots of fitness trackers can measure your calories burned, heart rate, and steps. With the Halo, Amazon wants to give you greater visibility into your overall health, along with actionable insights to help improve it. Priced at $99.99 for the band plus...

Unobtrusive design Automatically tracks activities and workouts Comprehensive sleep tracking Features workouts and wellness programs

Requires a subscription No screen or smartwatch capabilities Tone analysis feature drains battery life Doesn't track recovery

The unassuming Amazon Halo wristband works with a membership-based wellness service that can help you get active and sleep better, but its tone of voice and body composition analysis features are a bit creepy.

Amazon Halo Review: Movement Health meets over-sharing

 

It's fair to say Amazon Halo got off to a rocky start. A fitness band that promised analysis rivals couldn't deliver, the wrist-worn wearable may be simple but the machine learning runn…

Movement Health analysis is easy to understand ; Long battery life ; Rich data collection (if you're a subscriber)

Some of Amazon's features feel uncomfortably personal ; Halo band itself is a little bulky ; Subscription fee requires for all but the basics

Amazon Halo review

 

I didn't want to enjoy Amazon Halo. Its tone analysis feature seemed creepy and I dreaded the idea of a 3D body fat scan shaming me for the weight I've gained in my mid-area. But after testing this display-less fitness band, it's not nearly as bad as I...

Barely-there fit and feel Excellent companion app Tone analysis can be fascinating

Tone analysis is also creepy, and zaps battery Body fat scans raise concerns

Amazon Halo will tell you more about your health than you might ever want to know, so long as an AI-assisted understanding of your overall well-being doesn’t creep you out.

Review: Amazon Halo is incredibly invasive, but helps you learn about yourself | AppleInsider

 

Amazon certainly raised eyebrows when it announced its Halo fitness tracker. This tracker does what most others are capable of, such as activity and sleep tracking — but it also goes well past that, and crosses well into uncomfortable territory.

Comfortable to wear ; Unique abilities to measure body composition and tone

Privacy concerns are a hard pill to swallow ; Expensive if you don't use tone or body composition features ; Generic looking ; Monthly fee

Amazon Halo review

 

At the end of 2020, Amazon quietly released its fitness wearable, the Amazon Halo – but only in the US. Without a screen, it's a pure activity tracker rather than a smartwatch, but the partnered app has a few neat features that you won't find on any...

Week-long battery Body scan is novel and helpful (if rude) Intriguing extras

No display Subscription-gating features is annoying May irritate some wrists

The Amazon Halo is a neat, minimalist fitness tracker without a screen. All the info goes straight to the phone app, which has extra optional features, like monitoring your vocal tone and tracking your body fat percentage. It's not too pricey, but...
