Most of us have heard of Fitbit, the fitness tracker that’ll track your steps, sleep, notifications, and more. The company has announced their newest fitness tracker and a fashionable one at that, and it’s called Fitbit Alta. Fitbit has taken the extra step to make your next wearable look better and still keep track of what you care about the most in a fitness tracker.
Fitbit Alta’s design is more slim and sleek than its other family members, and also comes with the ability to change bands at any time. Features that you may already know from using other Fitbits are on the Alta including SmartTrack and smart notifications. Alta will still track your activity throughout the day whether you’re counting your steps by walking/running, the distance walked, calories burned — because we all like to know how many calories we burned after eating a slice of apple pie, and active minutes. At any point in time you need to look at what you’ve accumulated so far, just look at the OLED tap display, which also has the ability to change watch faces along with having the option of either portrait or landscape mode. Feel free to take a shower or a quick swim with the tracker as it is water resistant. Battery life will get you up to 5 days, and the Fitbit Alta is compatible with the Fitbit application on either your Apple or Android device.
Let’s move on to these bands mentioned above. They are interchangeable and come in metal, leather (Blush Pink and Graphite), or classic bands (Black, Blue, Plum, and Teal) to match your style of whatever you’ll be doing. Going out to dinner with your significant other? Put on the metal or leather band and be on your way. Pricing on the bands are $99.95 for the metal band, $59.95 for leather, and $29.95 for the classic bands.
The price for the Fitbit Alta starts at $129.95 and is currently available for pre-order and won’t ship until early March. If you’re a current Fitbit owner, do you plan on purchasing the Fitbit Alta?
