Amazon Announces New Halo View Fitness Tracker

Color AMOLED display, haptic feedback, and you can wear it while swimming

Amazon has announced its new Halo View fitness tracker, featuring a color AMOLED display and haptic feedback.

To go along with its Halo service, Amazon is releasing a new wrist-mounted fitness tracker. According to Amazon, the Halo View will be able to keep track of your blood oxygen levels, sleep scores, workouts, and other activities.

The device, itself, sports a full-color AMOLED display with haptic feedback, an optical sensor, a skin temperature sensor, and an accelerometer. So it can keep an eye on a bunch of different vitals in conjunction with the Halo service, then provide details about them that should be easy to read.

The Halo View also claims a battery life of up to a full week and can reach a full charge in less than 90 minutes.

It also is lightweight, swim-proof for up to 160 feet (five atmospheres), and comes in one of three band colors (Active Black, Sage Green, and Lavender Dream). Other band options can be purchased separately, with sport bands starting at $14.99 each, and fabric, metal, and leather bands starting at $29.99 each.

The Halo View will be available "around the holidays," according to Amazon, will include a year's worth of Halo membership, and will cost $79.99. After the free year is up, the Halo membership will auto-renew at $3.99 per month.
