Amazon Halo Early Access registration is open, but you might be wondering what this means, and why you can't just order the new fitness tracker for two-day delivery with your Prime membership.
Unlike all the best fitness trackers you can buy from the online shopping giant right now, Amazon Halo isn't for sale. While it's on sale — $64.99 as of this writing instead of the normal $99.99 — you can't simply add it to your cart. Instead, on the Amazon Halo landing page, you'll see a prompt to register for Early Access.
Similar to Amazon's Day One program, which is used to send eccentric products like the Amazon Echo Frames and Amazon Echo Loop to select testers, Early Access is a sign-up only system for securing the company's new devices. It's more inclusive than Day One, though.
So if you're thinking you'd like to try out Amazon Halo, you'll need to fill out a short questionnaire while signed into your Amazon account. Once complete, Amazon may send you an email invitation to carry out your Halo order, although this won't happen right away.
Practice a little patience and you might be rewarded with a new kind of fitness tracker and health service, complete with body fat, sleep and tone analysis.
Here's how to register for Amazon Halo early access.
