Halo Rise, Amazon, sleep tracker

Amazon.com unveils a device that tracks your breathing while you sleep

Amazon.com Inc on Wednesday announced a contactless device to monitor customers’ sleep, as well as a new version of the Kindle that allows users to write on the e-reader.

Amazon said the $139.99 sleep device, known as the Halo Rise, monitors room temperature, humidity and light, as well as the breathing patterns of the person closest to it. The goal is to give users insight into why they may or may not feel well-rested when they wake up.

Like many tech companies, Amazon has invested in consumer health trackers and has at times faced regulatory scrutiny over sensitive information it sought to collect, such as body fat percentage through a fitness bracelet called Halo.

Amazon said that privacy is central to its work and that the sleep tracker will encrypt health data.

Its new e-reader, the Kindle Scribe, is priced at $339.99, the e-commerce company said at its annual device and services event.
