In an ideal world, you’d be the picture of health: eight hours of restorative sleep every night, a morning meditation routine, a personalized exercise regimen and a daily menu of balanced meals. But this is real life, and it’s filled with stress, distractions and other parts of the human experience that lessen your quality of life.

Our modern world may present a lot of obstacles to developing healthy habits, but luckily, it also provides some pretty brilliant solutions. Case in point: Amazon’s Halo Bands, which just went on mega sale ahead of Prime Day! Right now you can score one for $45, down from $100 — that's a sweet 52% off. These gizmos essentially take on the role of doctor, nurse, personal trainer, chef, life coach and spiritual guru. The chic, lightweight wristbands monitor everything from your heart rate to your weight fluctuations to your sleep patterns.

You may have already heard about the Halo Band; it’s a heart-rate-monitoring, sleep-tracking, activity-monitoring, BMI-measuring, voice-analyzing powerhouse. But because it doesn’t have a digital display, it doesn’t send you alerts and reminders. You have to log into your Halo membership to see your health overview and unlock a suite of tools and info.

Yes, the same Halo membership works with the chic silver, black or blush/rose gold Halo Band, and when you buy this unassuming fitness tracker — on sale in this early Prime Day deal for just $45 — you get a free six-month membership! It’s just $4 a month going forward to gain access to popular apps like Headspace and Relax Melodies for meditation, Apativ and Orangetheory for sweat sessions or Weight Watchers Reimagined for weight loss and nutrition.

Shoppers say the waterproof and Alexa-enabled Halo Bands (with more than 10,000 five-star reviews, btw) outpace the competition.

“There are no screens, so it's not distracting. I can wear it all day and night with no issues,” wrote an astute fan. “It helps track my sleep in no way my Apple Watch or FitBit can. The tone function is what blew me away. I had no idea how I sound when I talk, and I love that it can pick up on that and guide me on the ways I sound.”

“The sleep monitoring is more informative and accurate than Apple Watch or Fitbit. Halo Band's time readings are spot-on night after night — I know because I've been monitoring and comparing,” wrote another shopper.

This shopper loves how easy it is to wear her Halo Band: “It’s EXTREMELY lightweight, which makes for easy wear day and night,” says the fan. “I’m enjoying not having my phone calls and texts connected so I’m not so worried about what’s happening in the cellular world.”

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Who knew staying fit could be such a piece of cake? Prime Day may be a few weeks away, but consider it a real treat to score the Halo Band for such a low price ahead of time. The early bird catches the worm!
