Not only does it have no display, but also lacks some more advanced sensors (the controversial intonation discrimination system, and two small microphones for this function), and it cannot be compared with other manufacturers. Product or third-party app connection. The first two are of course not saved, but the latter has been improved to a certain extent today, allowing you to see your own on certain third-party apps such as iFit and Openfit, as well as sports equipment from NordicTrack and CLBMR Heartbeat rate.

The biggest problem with Amazon’s Halo bracelet apart from intonation discrimination is that it has no special features.
