(Pocket-lint) - Amazon has announced a new version of its fitness tracker, but this time with a screen.

Coming in time for the holiday season, the Halo View is similar to last year's Band but sports an AMOLED display to give you time and information without needing to spark up the Halo mobile app each time. It also introduces haptic feedback.

Sensors include heart rate and blood oxygen monitoring.

It comes in a swim-proof design, with a silicone strap in three different colours - black, pink and green. Additional straps will also be made available.
