    This is just my second day using the app and i can confidently say i have been able to navigate easily and have seen all features available with no hassle. The experience is comparable to my experience with garmin, fitbit and apple. As this is a review of the app and the halo band, i do have few suggestions to share. Ability to define microphone power saving features for off peak, idle or sleep timing could potentially save battery life. Integration of the app and the analytics with third party apps like apple health, garmin, strava, etc could also be beneficial as it is very likely people cannot be exclusive to just one health monitor. Data hungry athletes/enthusiasts will usually cycle with 2-3 ecosystems and cross readable data can help either platforms to match or reference usable data for gaps, accuracy and quality. I would use my garmin for my cycling training but would want halo to recognize such efforts or training. Vice versa, i would want my garmin or strava to recognize my halo data for activities requiring HR or temperature readings. User defined sleep times should also help with accuracy. User defined activities list could also be used as reference for the halo OS or AI to prompt user with reminders or suggestions of their intended weekly rides/runs/weight training.

    I like that it has programs and individual activities within the app. Not only workouts (cardio, HIIT, mobility) but meditation and nutrition things too. Also there are filters for these and you can choose duration commitments too. 5 min intervals up to 60 minutes. You will be able to find gaps in your filters where like a 15 min mobility thing won't exist. Also I couldn't really find "Advanced" Things like "Strength" That weren't Bar workouts. A little lame there. Great otherwise.

  • I was looking for a Stress indicating device Sep 28, 2020

    By like fortnite😀
    I was looking for a device which can help with tracking sleep and overall stress throughout the day. This device is on the right track with all the measurements it’s tracking. While I am unable to see my body temperature yet, the sleep indicator has been accurate and the temperature will only make it better. I have left the tone detection feature on for more often collection and would like to see the app show me the conversations that it used to make those detections, and allow me to suggest what it got wrong for better learning. The labs are also very good, typically personalized short audios about certain topics. I have been looking at the communication articles and have been trying the exercises. Overall this is one the few trackers which does not focus only on movement and adds stress detection. I would like more enhancements on the stress detection features which this already has such as ability to detect power naps or more detailed sleep quality info, and using tone detection along with heart rate and temperature to suggest a stress score at certain points during the day.

  • Some kinks need to be worked out Oct 11, 2020

    I have several issues with this band. The main one being that the sleep portion is entirely inaccurate. The app keeps telling me I’m in either a deep or light sleep when I’m on the couch watching tv then it says I wale up (when I’m cleaning or getting ready for bed) and shows me that I didn't sleep well because I had numerous “awake” times. This obviously makes me question whether the sleep graph of deep, light, and rem sleep is entirely false. It appears as if it shows you all these sleep cycles but they’re entirely random and not actually your sleep- the only way it reads your sleep if when you go to bed and how long you sleep, everything in between is just a generic graph. The other thing is the voice recognition. I don’t personally see the point of this at all. Yes when my child fell and hit his head my tone did in fact sound worried and concerned.. I don’t see what this gives me. I turned the feature off because I don’t personally see the benefit and it feels intrusive and I worry about why this feature exists at all. It didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know. On the positive side it’s helping me get in shape- of course having any kind of tracker helps motivate you to move. I’m also liking the body fat scan- it’a good to see yourself from the side and monitor progress.

  • Decent for first gen product. Mar 12, 2021

    I have had several versions of Fitbit and Apple Watches so have been a wearable customer for quite some time. The Halo is better than a Fitbit and not as good as an iWatch. Obviously the iWatch costs considerably more. The activity tracker is pretty good at tracking steps, runs and activities that track your heart rate. On occasion the tracker grossly makes an error on how many points and activity should be so you need to audit the results. For example, the same walk for an hour at the same pace will one day be 50 points and the next 14. That is a bug. The sleep tracker is also hit and miss. I have been using sleep cycle on my iPhone along side the halo to audit results and I would say 8 out of 10 nights they are similar. The other nights the halo seems way off. The body fat scanner is also off. I took a scan and got a result. Then I reduced calories, exercised like crazy and lost 5 pounds over two weeks. When I scanned again my body fat went up quite a bit. Hmmm? The voice and tone feature i turned off because it used a lot of battery and the insights I didn’t find helpful. I was sad. Or happy or whatnot. Assuming it is even accurate. So what? All in all on a scale of 1-10 I would give the device a 6 and if they fix the bugs in the software a 7 or 8.

    Fun idea but not totally practical. I wish the band had a screen instead of always needing to rely on the phone app to view data. Plus I still need to wear a watch. It's extremely frustrating that if you're sedentary past the app's allotted time frame that it starts deducting activity points you've earned. That's soooo disheartening and makes me want to move even less if you're already going to take the points away. I will not be continuing my usage of this once my free trial is over.

    I'm wearing a tested tracker (years using GPS) to compare as baseline/standard. Halo doesn't have a setting to change the first day of the week to standard calendar Sunday, it drops at least an hour off each night's sleep, it only records 1/3 of my steps, it doesn't records my workouts, there's no heart rate graph, Tone always says Indifferent, Body won't take pic, & the band has less to offer than my $30 model! Bottom line: not accurate or worth the cost + added monthly subscription.

    Have to reconnect a lot. Tone doesn't work correctly. It keeps saying speak louder. The sleep doesn't record like it should, it gives wrong timing. Tracking the workouts is okay but when you need to rest because of having pain it takes off points since you're not moving around. Body image scan finally worked after I kept calling in about it. I used my Fitbit on one arm and the Halo on the other. The Fitbit gave more of accurate reading..and it didn't even deduct points! Customer service no help

    Terrible. You CANNOT use on multiple devices and you have to pay a monthly subscription for this junk. I can not get this thing to reconnect after my old phone broke and i tried to reinstall on new phone. Utter garbage. The sleep gauge is so buggy i barely ever get a score. I hate this thing.

    App wants you to do these tasks, rather than just tracking your activity. I just wanted a simple activity tracker that would prompt me if I got lazy - notifications on my phone, "you've been sitting to long, get up", stuff like that. Maybe also notifications when I've met daily activity thresholds. Also- the only partners with this device are an insurance company and a known weight loss scammer. This app lacks basic functionality. I was hoping they would fix that. They haven't.

  • I love it Dec 4, 2020

    By Bîñå
    I got this to help motivate me to be more active and for the info it tracks a provides on sleep as well. Seeing how lazy I really am is an eye opener and does make me want to do more. I did the body scan once so far, that was depressing but also a motivator, it’s different than looking in the mirror. You see what you look like to others and it tells you your body fat ratio. I really like the sleep tracking aspect. I see how long I slept, my sleep cycle durations, and body temp averages. There are also helpful activities you can accept and work on throughout your week. There are all kinds like yoga, workouts, average sleep times, meditations, etc. They are either tracked automatically like the average sleep time or you use your phone to complete them like the workouts or meditations. Like I said I love this thing, the data I get it helpful. I still need to put more effort into fitness but I’ll get there. I bought the sport strap too, I’ve used it since day one and like it. No issues so far, haven't tried the speech analysis yet, not sure I want to know how I sound with my mood swings. I would recommend to others and buy again.

  • Fabulous! Dec 21, 2020

    By Awesomepersonified
    I’ve had my halo band for 2 weeks. It was simple to setup with sleek packaging and instructions, very Apple-like. There are more features that I am actually using than I expected. If you like getting credit for and tracking your activities this may be for you. I’ve exercised daily for a long time but the way it tracks intensity has made a difference to how hard I work during my workouts. I love the sleep tracker and how it shows sleep patterns and the body scan for body fat. I plan to try out some of the meditation sessions and like the different health suggestions like trying partial fasting. I also like that it tracks my resting heartrate. I haven’t quite figured out the tone tracker, I think I inadvertently turned it off. I have not used another fitness tracker for comparison but have already recommended this to friends. Having something on my wrist is not great but its pretty small and light. So far, this has been fun! If you are concerned about your health data there is a lot that is captured, that might be a drawback which is discussed/addressed at setup.

    Good for first try. I wish I could watch the workouts on a larger screen than my phone, like my TV. I would also like the ability to choose the day I do my workout instead of them being auto generated and then deleted if I don't get to them that day. Some days I'm at work for several days with internet access.

  • Good app but 2 issues Dec 19, 2020

    By dc$$112
    So far I like my Halo. The app is easy to use and understand. It has a lot of good data that is well organized. I am use to wearing a Fitbit. I like the way the halo app works better. It has labs to help you improve things like sleep and exercise . The body scan is amazing. I am use to looking at myself in the mirror, looking at my scan and reading the analysis is both an eye opener and a motivator. I haven’t used the tone feature yet. I have two issues: (1) sleep. In the evening if I sit down to watch TV or read, It often decides I’m asleep. That messes up the whole sleep analysis making the info useless. When it does record my sleep times correctly, I find the information useful and it seems to be accurate based on how I feel. (2). Steps. These are way off. I know it is using some standard metric but I am a 73 year old woman and apparently don’t fall into that metric. I have counted my steps while walking and find that for 10 actual steps the app is only recording 2-3. This is a big issue for me. I am trying to increase my activity and the count is just too far offered. It is also demotivating.

    Update 4/8/21 I really like it. I like the smaller size, no screen. Need to make sure I get the notifications, but, using this as reminders to work out, doing the shorter workouts, the walking programs are all great. It's comfortable. It tracks sleep fine. I wish it were in ring form at this price point, but it's all good.

  • New & Easy to use Dec 7, 2020

    By Marty0926
    I received my Halo about a month ago. I find it similar to other devices I have such as FitBit and Apple. Halo has elements that are similar to the other devices, counts steps, sleep activity, exercise programs. What is has that is unique and that I really enjoy is the Activity app. It records any activity I do without me having to add it or I can add one if I want to. The body scan. Helped get me more motivated to move. It was easy to use and set up. I like the exercise videos better than the others I’ve used. I would like to see a wake up alarm added or link to my apple phone to vibrate if I get a text or call. It has a voice app that you can choose to monitor tone of speech but after trying it. Doesn’t appeal to me. I would like to be able to remove apps I don’t use from main screen. Overall I am very satisfied with the Halo.

    not a fan of wearing an activity tracker that shows nothing on the band. does not tell me the time or how many steps I have. you have to go to the app for that. I have to wear this and a watch. not a smart design. when my free trial is over, I am ditching it. I gave it 3 stars since you can go to the app and see how well you slept and take body scans. that part is cool.

  • Easy to use but needs more features to be “worth it” Jan 21, 2021

    By Lew413
    I have been using the app for about a month. I do feel that it is helpful on my health journey and the app is relatively easy to use and set up. I don’t love the way that the sleep tracker works. I think it does a good job of tracking your sleep stages but it uses that info to tell you how good you slept, based on a rating that is assigned. I think it should ask you how you feel when you wake up, how you feel mid day, and how you feel by that evening. I think the sleep information provided would be more useful over time if you were also tracking how you feel each day. For example, one night, I woke up 38 times but it said I had a great night’s sleep. I disagree with that, and I felt like crap the next day. But there is nowhere to input that info. I will soon be doing my second body scan. I am 5’11” and 165lbs and after my first scan, the app said I am obese based on body fat percentage. Hahahaha. While I do recognize that I need to work out more and live a less sedentary life, I don’t feel as though I or my doctor would classify me as obese. Just my two cents about how the app could be improved.

  • Feature Rich w a Few Drawbacks Jan 18, 2021

    By Minnesota Mad Man
    First this is more than a band. More than an app. It's a focus on your overall health. Labs from super qualified groups including Orange Theory. Lots of great advice. For me anger management is a key and it's got at least three areas where it helps w this. Voice tone. Sleep. Stress and meditation. It has so many labs you will never use them all (at least for a really long time). But they are there. A whole library of activities and guides for you. Have an area you want to improve... It's there. It has a fat measurement feature using AI that I believe is as good as a Dexascan from what I have read so far. So it's great. Why only 4 stars? It misses some steps that my fitbit doesn't. And yes I've tracked the FB against Garmin and made sure. Second the battery is only good for 1 -2 days (less than a day more recently). It's activity score is nonsensical. I walked 16K steps yesterday. It registered almost none of them and I have an activity score of zero. Yikes In gen 2 these will be fixed I am sure. Maybe they will connect to your insurance Co and help get you reduced rates too.

  • Keeping for now, only for two features Nov 29, 2020

    By FearOfLemmings
    I really want to like the Halo strap. I’ve used the Whoop Strap for a year but didn’t want to keep paying the $30 per month. The Halo strap isn’t near as comfortable. The Halo won’t broadcast HR to external devices or apps like Strava. The battery life is absolutely terrible for the Halo—barely a day. But I may still keep the Halo for the tone tracking. I tend to talk very loudly and become overly animated with my voice so I want to see if the Halo will pickup on that and help me ‘tone’ it down a bit. Also the body scan, the body fat percentage seemed a bit high, at least I hope. But honestly, it would be worth $3.99 a month to do the body scan within the app. I believe a similar scan cost $80 per at a local gym. I really want to like and love the Halo but the battery life has to be fixed. The actually strap needs to be made from softer materials and broadcasting Heart Rate to external devices and apps would be useful. And then, maybe this isn’t for target market, but I’d like to be able to see and track my Heart Rate Variability with the Halo as well.

  • Cool idea, doesn’t work. Dec 26, 2020

    By Matt_Danger
    Fitness trackers are a fine a dozen. This one is trying real hard to be something unique and original but it falls short. Way short. The step calculator is fairly accurate and seems to get the job done there. On that, it seems like this band is a success. Otherwise, it is not good. There hasn’t been a single night where it measured my sleep completely. For some reason it doesn’t kick in and misses the first 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. It has completely missed a few nights entirely. (The band was powered and positioned properly on my arm, just isn’t performing.) The BMI calc isn’t actually doing anything active, just using a bit of math to smoke-and-mirror its way through magic science. The voice tone meter was amusing at first, but then concerning later, and if I could actually listen to the snippets it was measuring that would make its usefulness outweigh its creepiness. But you can’t listen to the snippets, so it’s just a creepy little feature that doesn’t really give me a way to learn from the findings.
