Amazon has reveled it will start selling a device later this year that can track sleeping patterns and the device is called Halo Rise.
Halo Rise uses a no-contact sensors and AI to measure a user’s breathing patterns, allowing the device to track sleep stages during the night, but won’t detect any other activity in the bedroom from a partner or a pet, according to Amazon.
Halo Rise can also detect humidity, temperature and light, that might make it difficult to get a good sleep at night, it can also tell how much time you’ve spent in certain stages of sleep and provide a sleep score based on user’s sleep quality.
There is also a small speaker which of course is just for alarm tones and a light which will also come on in seconds, simulating the colors and gradual brightening of a sunrise, once it is your alarm time or once your dear Halo Rise detects that you are moving from deep to light sleep.
Amazon, also offered assurance on Wednesday that the information in the Halo Rise will be kept safe stating that the “health data is encrypted in transit and at rest in the cloud”, “Amazon Halo health data is not used for marketing, product recommendations, or advertising, and never sold”. Amazon also said that the device “does not include cameras or microphones,” and will go for $139.99.
Meanwhile, Amazon said they will release a new Kindle Scribe, the first Kindle consumers can write on. They will also add more features to its Ring doorbell cameras, Astro, it home robot, and release new Echo devices.
