(Pocket-lint) - Amazon recently announced a fitness tracker called Halo View. You can now pre-order the device, which launches next month, and if you snag one before it officially releases, you can save $30 on the wearable.

The Halo View looks an awful lot like Fitbit trackers, and it works like them, too. It offers a colour OLED screen, seven-day battery life, 50-meter water resistance for swimming, optical heart-rate sensor, sleep tracking, blood oxygen monitoring, and the ability to track overnight skin temperature changes.

Keep in mind Amazon first entered the world of fitness in 2020 with the Halo Band. The Halo View is just its latest attempt at rivaling Google-owned Fitbit.

The Halo View notably comes with one free year of membership to Halo Fitness, Amazon's fitness and nutrition premium service that regularly costs $4 a month. Similar to Peloton, Halo Fitness features on-demand workouts and meditations, as well as recipes from Weight Watchers and Whole Foods Market.
