The first version of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE to release will be its 5G model. Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi model will be priced lower at $529, and will release beginning in September.

Rounding out the specs are 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 10,090 mAh battery.

Amazon’s Halo Band can share your heart rate to other apps and workout equipment

Amazon is updating its Halo fitness band with the ability to share live heart rate information with third-party devices and fitness apps over BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). The company is currently partnered with NordicTrack for its iFit service, along with Openfit and CLMBR. Live heart rate has been available to view since launch in the Live tab of the Halo app, but connecting it to display in other apps and devices is just as easy. Amazon says you can turn on heart rate sharing by going to the Halo app’s Settings, selecting Heart Rate Sharing, switching it to on, and then following the on-screen prompts to share your heart rate with the other app or device. The Halo Band already working with a few more services is a real plus if you don’t want to be locked into a specific service. Flipping the switch on live heart rate monitoring is also just the latest way Amazon has supported its device post-launch with software features. In June, Amazon added the ability for its app and band to monitor “movement health.”
