The latter is purpose-built to focus on your health and wellness, since it doesn’t have a screen or constant notifications. It uses a small sensor capsule to deliver highly accurate data, and includes an accelerometer, temperature sensor, heart rate monitor, two microphones, an LED indicator light, as well as a button to turn the microphones on or off.

The Halo Band is water resistant for all-day wear and the battery lasts up to seven days on a full charge. If you need to power it up quickly, the band can be fully charged in under 90 minutes.
