Need help choosing which device to get? We have dedicated reviews for the Amazon Halo Band and the Amazon Halo View. The biggest difference between the two is the Halo View has a screen, while the Halo Band doesn't. Both are competent fitness trackers and offer a lot of features through the Amazon Halo fitness app.
Costing $3.99/month, the Amazon Halo fitness app is cheaper than several competing apps like Peloton or Apple Fitness Plus. It still gets you access to the important tracking features like heart rate, steps, sleep and more. Unique to the Halo fitness bands are body fat scans and tone analysis to help you communicate better with others.
As for the band itself, the Amazon Halo Band is comfortable enough to wear that you'll probably forget you have it on. It also has a long battery life that can last up to 7 days on a single charge. When it does get low, you can charge it up to full in around 90 minutes.
The low cost of entry and cheap subscription means the Amazon Halo Band gives the best fitness trackers a serious run for their money. Now that it has hit its lowest price ever, there's never been a better time to pick one up. Hungry for more sales? Check out our Amazon deals coverage.
