    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 a lot of what they've done with the app, especially the focus on activities instead of steps. However, I've been experiencing a bug where the app does not correctly add up the day's activities. Dealing with Amazon support has been frustrating. They keep pointing me to generic app troubleshooting steps. You'd think for an early access/beta they would have some mechanism for reporting an actual bug. I keep trying but I can't get the info to Dev.

  • 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.

    Certainly room for improvement but a fairly decent app so far. Can't tell how accurate the body scans are though. I had a very dramatic change between my initial two scans (about 3% increase in body fat). There was no change to my diet or routine so that didn't make any sense. Sleep tracker is decent from what I can tell. On activity, I wish they would track the types of activity automatically. If I always row, the band should be smart enough to pick up on that.

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

    By Tasuketeme
    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.

  • Daily Crashes, Uncertain Data Nov 19, 2020

    By MML917
    I like the idea, but I am uncertain of the reliability of the data. -The band is very comfortable. I forget it us on. -Unfortunately, the Halo app crashes multiple times daily. After launching the app, I am afraid to touch my phone to look at the data or initiate a sync because I want it to sync before crashing. Nevertheless, it crashes anyway. -The band disconnects a few times per week. -I thought the voice feedback would be very handy, but apparently, I am very melancholy. Halo apparently hears thoughts as well, or maybe I talk out loud to myself. It seems to document conversations that I know didn’t take place, like when I am driving alone in a car for 6 hours. -The battery life is extremely short with the voice feedback feature on. -It took 6 or more tries to complete the body scan photos because of app crashes. I have only done the body scan once at this time. -The sleep functions seem to work ok, but I’m not convinced of the data reliability due to the other issues. This is my first fitness band. After trying Halo, I see features on other wearables that I would like to see on Halo. Features such as a watch, reminders, and a sleep cycle alarm would be beneficial. Though these features would completely change the current simplicity and likely greatly increase the price. I like Halo, but the band and the app need some fixes and refinements. I look forward to improvements.

    Not very accurate. As a personal trainer I can tell you the way the activity is rated is off. The battery life is horrible compared to my other trackers. Steps are also inaccurate. Heart rate monitor is good. I like that there are video workouts available in the app. Sleep tracker needs improvement. If you nap or wake up early and go back to sleep it doesn't track that. But I like that it tracks your sleeping temperature. The body scan is great! Will be wonderful seeing progress.

  • App not working Nov 25, 2020

    By Dargonav
    Have had the Halo for about a week, setup went well and has been working fine. I tried to do a new body scan today after doing one the first day I got it, but this time it took all the pictures but kept loading and loading before giving a reading. I tried several times with no success. Then, I tried to delete a previous scan and again it failed over and over. Tried to uninstall and reinstall but now it fails to verify and so the app won’t even start at all. I have unpaired and repaired, I have done all the different button hold down combinations with no success. As of right now I have basically a worthless brick of a device. I have no way of figuring out if my data was stored or deleted or even leaving feedback / getting technical support since that is all within the app that I now can’t get access to...

    I bought this as an upgrade to my old FitBit Charge 2. I think I got caught up in the hype because this was certainly not an upgrade. The tone feature doesn't even work. The way it tracks steps and activity levels isn't really clear, and it doesn't show calories burned, there's no feature for tracking the food you ate or women's health stuff. And there's so much extra stuff you have to do like hitting a button for it to sync that was never an issue with my Fitbit. I'm sending it back.

    2 stars only because it can track heart rate. Otherwise I'd give it less. Body composition is worse than my cheapo smart scales, I've lost body fat but it's showing an increase in the composition. Not to mention it takes a a good half hour to get a scan between telling me to move my arms when I didn't move after it telling me I was in a good position for the scan. Don't use tone at all. Hope this app gets better.

  • Bio-JACKED, not Bio-hacked! Oct 21, 2020

    By max seeker
    The science based, innovative functionality of Amazon’s Halo fitness wristband represents a major paradigm shift in AI wearables for personal fitness, wellness, and self-actualualization. If you can handle a little AI “tough love” scrutiny and constructive feedback ( including personalized,multidiscipline self-improvement plans or “labs”), then this is the next must have wearable for you! That is, given the additional proviso, you can check your over-inflated, paranoid ego at the door. No one (except you) cares about your random bio-physiological and tonal sampling the device uses to help you become a better you. Ergo, to get the most out of this mildly invasive, cutting edge technology, I’d advise you “let go, and let god” in the Halo Cloud work it's mojo on your data!

  • So far so good! Oct 2, 2020

    By Melrosemnt
    I have only had the halo for a few days but I really love it. I am gathering information on my habits better than any device I have used previously (Fitbit, knock off fitbits, my phone). It’s beneficial if you are trying to monitor your health habits. But as someone who deals with mental illness, it immensely helps to understand and track my moods to be able to give quantitative information to my doctors. And with not having a screen to look at, it is very easy to forget I am wearing it which provides less distraction throughout the day. I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand their physical and mental health better.

  • Game Changer Nov 2, 2020

    By lmj185074
    I’ve had a Fitbit, Jawbone, Misfit, and Polar activity trackers. The cloth band is so comfortable I forget I have it on. They were all just fancy pedometers that told how long you slept(maybe). The 3D body fat measure blows all these out the water. The labs concept is absolute genius. The sleep measure does a great job of showing you all phases of sleep you enter not just awake/sleep. The voice tone for mood best feature I never knew I wanted. Needs an app integration or additional feature for measuring or adjusting BMR/VO2max and integration with a food diary it would be a complete beast.

    App is well designed and rather intuitive. If I can make a suggestion, the body scanner seems pretty accurate, but the model it generates looks a bit off compared to my body. I recently lost around 40 lbs and have some extra skin, but the model is pretty smooth. It would be nice to see this in the model as well as in the prediction feature. It's a real part of weight loss that should be factored when choosing a goal body shape. Thank you, devs and comment currators!

    Decent with room for improvement. Seems to run smoothly so far. There are a few features that would greatly improve the app. Like being able to tap on or zoom in on the graphs to get a closer picture of the information such as the time of day. For example a heart rate spike at 6:07pm for 3 minutes, what was I doing at that time, was it a panic attack, did I stoop over, was it random, did my chest feel weird, etc. And also the ability to add a short note to a specific point on the chart.

    So far so good, I like what it is and what it could be, the sleep tracking seems to be on par, I like that it tracks your heart rate while you're sleeping, I haven't had any issues with activity tracking seems to be spot on, I think the tracking of the tone needs to be fine tuned a bit more, maybe send a notification about the tone of your voice while in action like others have brought up, I would like it to capture the miles I walked for the day, and the ability to add your daily food intake.

    Could be better but I like using it. The tone of voice feature is my favorite as I'm really trying to watch my tone with my children. 😊 I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant so the scan analysis is inaccurate but I would like an option to say "yes I'm pregnant" when performing a scan. At least then I wouldn't feel so bad with the results since my "belly" has a human growing inside. Otherwise nice app. Can't wait to explore it more.

    I love this band and app!! The heartrate is super accurate and I love all the labs that they have. The 2 things I do not like: I really wish the band had the time. I also wish there was a setting so it would not track time when I'm sedentary at night. Having a newborn I am up often in the middle of the night so it thinks I'm just being lazy when really I am attempting to sleep. And maybe if it could vibrate when I am sitting too much. Otherwise I am now addicted to getting all my points!!

    So far, I really like this band. App is user friendly. As of now, the step tracking very accurate. The sleep tracker needs some work, though. I have been wearing this band for 3 days. Each time I wake up at night, I mark a post it note by my bed with the time. Most of my wake ups are not recorded by the band. I have noticed others also having issues with sleep tracking. It is my hope that Amazon will update to make the sleep tracker more accurate. Would also be helpful to track naps separately.

  • Some good some bad. Nov 30, 2020

    By ModernWood
    The data is interest for sure. I like to see the breakdown of sleep in the morning and I think it’s really encouraged me to get better sleep. Similarly I think the step count encourages me to step more. Or to at least feel guilty when I don’t. The tone thing I don’t love. First it feels really vague. So I was angry for 7% of the day? And what action do I take? And also screw you band because I felt great today and maybe my tone is a bit monotone. People with a dry wit don’t register as joyful. So I turned off tone. I’d also say the app feels sort of cluttered. Lots of suggestions for labs that I just don’t have the capacity to try and sort of feel like advertisements for other services. I guess I just want the data to all lean more and be more granular and live in one place. It’s a nice start. I’m sticking with it for now. But so far it’s telling me what I know. I need more steps. And I slept great or didn’t.

    By Reviewer Number 10
    Since most of the functionality is software based, hopefully big improvements will be made I wanted to track and improve my sleep habits. However the app does not appear to accurately track sleep. Unfortunately, I don’t have any definitive proof of inaccuracies, but I don’t recall being awake hours at a time at night as it shows that I am The exercise part is not clear either. Sometimes it records my walks. Sometimes it doesn’t. I can manually enter time, but does that mean my walk wasn’t strenuous enough? That’s important to know. My guess is the exercise accuracy isnt all that great either The body image scan is very interesting. It’s disappointing right now, but could be encouraging if I can see it change. I’ve used the band for about a month so far

    Not reliable. Two days ago it stopped tracking steps mid day. I reset the band and it started working again. Last night it did not record any sleep at all. Reset the band and maybe it will work tonight. My smart watch has never had a problem and I have had it for at least a year. Not good. I wil try it for another week before I decide to return it.
