The Coolest, Stylish Fitness Wearable You Need: the Fitbit Alta
Fitbit just released a style game changer in the connected health and fitness industry with the Fitbit Alta. Sleek and fashionable for both men and women, the Alta features premium bands that can easily be interchanged to fit the user’s personal style. The Alta can also keep wearers informed with the everyday tracking Fitbit is known for, it can provide all-day advanced fitness motivation and other new features.
So I just started using a Fitbit in December and I’ve been hooked. After a month of using my Flex, I was thinking of upgrading to the Blaze, but thought it was a little too big for me. I was so happy to find out Fitbit was releasing new slim and sleek tracker that has some features of a smartwatch and more.
Design wise, the Fitbit Alta has a modular look with a satin finish, stainless steel tracker body that features the ability to interchange the bands. A line of stylish interchangeable bands in multiple popular colors and premium materials will be available. They include a textured take on the classic fitness wristbands, soft and premium hide leather bracelets with a natural grain, and a luxurious, hand-polished silver bangle. The tracker will also soon be available in a stunning, shiny gold stainless steel as well.
New tech features:
Along with the aesthetics focus, the Alta provides new tech upgrades for Fitbit. First, there’s a new features called ‘Reminders to Move’ that can help the wearer reach health and fitness goals by notifying them when it’s time to move (which can be programmed during which hours of the day they’d like to be notified).
The other cool tech feature is the SmartTrack, which helps the Alta automatically recognize what kind of exercise the users is doing to provide a smarter and easier way to track workouts in the app. Everything from the elliptical to kickboxing to tennis can be automatically registered.
Other tech features:
An easy-to-read, vibrant OLED tap display shows your activity stats and the time. When near your smartphone, the Alta will also send you notifications of phone calls, texts and calendar notifications, and the battery is pretty strong as well with a single charge able to last up to five days.
The Fitbit Alta is priced at $129 and is available now for presale with retail availability starting in March.
