Amazon introduced a novel called Halo Rise, which combines a nightlight, an alarm and a sleep tracking device. The company reports that the new one is using an "uncomacted" sleep monitoring technology that eliminates the need to wear fitness trackers or smart hours.
The company claims that it has no cameras and microphones, but monitors the user's movements and breathing machines with built-in sensors, including radar, and claims that if the owner of the device is not alone in the bed, it will monitor the breathing of the person closest to it.
In the morning, the device reports to the user how well it slept. Before waking up the user, Halo Rise selects the appropriate sleep phase to make the process the least problematic, then simulates "lighting" with lighting elements.
Halo Rise connects to the power grid, so it won't have to charge it. The new one integrates with other devices of the smart Amazon house. In particular, the user can ask the smart Echo column how well he slept and get the basic data collected by Halo Rise. In addition, the new one can recognize the time when the user goes to bed and turns on the peace music on the column. You can also ask Alexa for the nightlight to wake up the user of his favorite song.
The model costs $139.99 and will be sold later this year, and the user will also receive six months of Halo's fitness service from Amazon as a gift.
