Amazon Launches New Band That Measures Our Tone Of Voice Among A Lot More


Amazon wants to be everything to everyone and now they have launched their version of the Apple Watch or Fitbit. Their wearable Halo Band has been rolled out. It will measure the usual things like steps walked in a day and sleep tracking. One thing that is different about Amazon's Halo Band is that it contains tiny mics that analyze your voice and tone to figure out how people perceive you. The band will be able to analyze how you talk to determine when you're content and when you're hesitant. They promise that nothing said goes into the cloud and is deleted immediately after analysis. In other words, use at your own risk.

Some doctors think this new technology could be a good tool in managing stress as it will be able to tell if you're bringing work stress home with you.

The Amazon Halo Band will also be able to measure your body mass index, again, they claim no human will ever see the analysis.

The Amazon Halo band retails for $99.99 and will be free for the first six months, then $3.99 per month after that.
