I’m loving my new Fitbit Alta HR fitness tracker. Its slim design is modern and smart looking. Here is my review as a pro and con list:
Fitbit Alta HR Pros
- Easy to set up and use daily with great support
- The smartphone app shows easy to read and detailed graphs and statistics to give you a snapshot of your progress
- An affordable price for the heart rate features. The tracker lets you know when you are in a fat burning zone
- Measures your activity all day, including counting steps, calories and distance
- You can set up smartphone notifications for calls, texts and calendar updates
- Tracks your sleep patterns and quality
- You can wake up to a gentle silent vibrating alarm
- Handy reminders to move every hour so you can take a break from the computer
- The bands are adjustable like a watch and easy to clean
- You can buy extra bands to suit your look in black (Stainless steel or gunmetal), blue grey, fuchsia (pretty pink), coral and soft pink (rose gold). Splash out on a premium band in brown, indigo or lavender leather. I’m lusting after the bracelet-like stainless steel.
Fitbit Alta HR Cons
- The screen can be hard to read in midday sunlight (just cover it with your other hand)
- Weekly charging via a USB
I love reaching my milestones – especially hitting 10,000 steps in a day, as my wristband screen shows an explosion of fireworks and has a little fitness tracker party.
I recommend subscribing to the premium account where you’ll be able to see Fitbit community benchmarks, food reports, activity reports, sleep reports and a personalized 12-week fitness plan for AUS$59.99 per year.
The Fitbit Alta HR is a solid fitness tracker which will help you to reach your fitness and weight loss goals with useful statistics and a good-looking design.
