Amazon has launched a fitness band and a smartphone application. The Amazon Halo Fitness Band can monitor your sleep, track activities & can even track tone of your voice. Unlike other brands in the market, Amazon Halo Fitness Band doesn't come with a display. It has a microphone but not for voice commands but to analyse the tone of your voice. It synchronises all the data to the Amazon Halo app in your smartphone (Android & iPhone) via Bluetooth. In the USA, Amazon Halo Band will cost around $99.99 (or Rs. 7,357). To use advanced features via the Halo app, one needs to pay a monthly subscription fee of $3.99 (or Rs 293.57). Currently, this service isn't a part of Amazon Prime. For now, Amazon has launched an invite-only early access program with an introductory price of $64.99, including 6 months of free service.
