I recently had the opportunity to try out Amazon Halo Rise, a bedside sleep tracker with an alarm clock, wake-up light, and environmental monitors. It came with a 6-month Halo membership and access to more features designed to improve sleep and enhance health. In this review, I’ll go over my experience with the device, the features it offers, and how it works.
One of the first things I noticed about Halo Rise is that it’s sleek and modern in design. It’s small enough to fit on a nightstand and doesn’t take up much space, which is great for small bedrooms. It’s also very easy to set up. The Halo app will guide you through the simple process.
Halo Rise works without a microphone or camera, so it doesn’t capture images or record sounds. It uses silent and no-contact sensor technology to measure body movement and breathing patterns throughout the night to calculate sleep stages. It also monitors room temperature, humidity, and light disturbances, all of which can affect sleep quality. The device is designed to track one person’s sleep and it does so accurately.
The device also comes with a wake-up light that simulates the colors of sunrise, gradually brightening to wake you up in a natural way. It also has a Smart Alarm that monitors your sleep stages and wakes you at the ideal time for getting up.
I also found it helpful that the Halo Rise works with a compatible Echo device. You can hear last night’s sleep summary, use it as a voice-activated smart light, wake to music instead of alarm tones, and create a Routine to automatically adjust compatible smart home devices when you get into bed.
In conclusion, I’ve been really impressed with the Amazon Halo Rise. It’s well-designed, easy to set up, and very accurate. It also offers a lot of great features such as the wake-up light, Smart Alarm, and integration with compatible Echo devices. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a way to track their sleep and improve their overall health.
