Available in the form of a wristband, the fitness tracker is given various finishes to suit the different styles and tastes of different users. The finishes ranges from metal-looks and leather to quick-release colored bands that make the gadget appear more like jewelry than the functional accessory it is.

The Fitbit Alta fitness tracker is available in two models, namely: Luxe and Classic.

Tracking Activity

The Fitbit Alta fitness tracker is designed to track distance, steps, burned calories and active time in minutes; this is possible because of the gadget’s 3-axis accelerometer feature.

Designed to use Fitbit’s SmartTrack technology, the Alta tracker automatically detects certain activities performed by the user. The detected activities are usually added into the Fitbit application as workouts accomplished by the user.

With mini step goals set at 250 on the maximum end, the gadget is also designed to track sleep, and remind the user to attain the set target every hour.

Since Fitbit focuses on the tracking market of casual lifestyle, its Alta product neither has an optical heart rate monitor nor GPS features.

Notifications and Display

This Fitbit fitness tracker is designed with an OLED display that is activated by taps. Moreover, the tracker runs an app that is not just easy to use and friendly, but designed for beginners.
