Amazon has finally launched the long-overdue latest feature for its Halo Band. This feature allows live heart rate details to be shared with any third-party devices and fitness apps over Bluetooth Low Energy(BLE).
The live heart rate feature is available for both viewing in the Halo app and connecting with other devices and apps. According to the company, this feature can be accessed through the Halo app Setting, selecting Heart Rate Sharing, switching it to on, and then following the on-screen instructions to share your live heart rate with the other app or device.
Furthermore currently, the company is partnered with NordicTrack for its iFit service, along with Openfit and CLMBR. The halo Band is working with few more services to provide its user with more variety in services. Recently, in the month of June Amazon added another feature that allows “movement health” to be monitored in its app and band.
The concept of showing heart rate on-screen has become a common feature in many fitness services. It is believed that live heart rate count motivates the user during exercise and shows which workout done is more demanding. In certain cases, the on-screen heart rate feature is used to sell other devices like in Apple Fitness Plus, there is a need for Apple watch to access additional features like “Burn Bar”.
Additionally, the introduction of the Live Heart Rate is the current way of Amazon supporting the post-launch of its Halo Band with new software features. In the future, Amazon might reveal more features to keep users interested in its devices.
