Fitbit Alta

Why I Love my Fitbit Alta

In February, I took the plunge and joined the Fitbit craze by purchasing the new Fitbit Alta as a birthday gift for myself. Until the Fitbit Alta came out last spring, I didn’t like the bulky look of all the other activity trackers on the market. I wanted a fitness tracker that was fashionable and functional at the same time, without breaking the bank.

After doing my research, I decided to order the Fitbit Alta from Amazon.com.

I love that the Alta is a slim, affordable, and stylish, giving you the option of personalizing it with fun interchangeable bands. Here are some of the bands I currently use.

Some other bands I have my eye on are the bangle bands that turn your fit bit into a bracelet. 

If you do a basic search on Amazon for “Fitbit Alta Bands” like I did below, you will find unlimited options on how you can style the Fitbit Alta.  

Besides being stylish, the Alta also offers great functionality. I have listed some of my favorite features below.

1) At the flick of my wrist, the Alta can tell me the date & time, steps taken, active minutes, calories burned, distance, and battery level. (I’m not a marathon type of girl, so having a heart rate monitor wasn’t a feature I was looking for).

2) With the use of my iPhone’s Bluetooth, the Alta vibrates, so you never miss an important call, text message, or calendar notification.

3)Reminders to move every hour, helps me stay on track to reach my daily stepping goal. My husbands often laughs at me when I start walking circles inside the house to make sure I reach my hourly 250 step goal.

You can also turn this option off, which is a nice feature.

4)The Alta also has a long battery life. I usually charge it once a week when I have some downtime, so I never find myself waiting for it to charge. You also have the option of receiving email notifications when the battery level is low if you choose not to have the battery level displayed on the device.

5)I can’t get over how accurate the sleep tracking feature is. When I purchased the Alta, this feature wasn’t very important to me, but now I find myself constantly monitoring my sleep pattern.

So there you have it! In my opinion, the Alta is one of the best fitness trackers around for the average person. Again, if you’re training for a marathon, it’s probably not the best pick, but it’s a stylish, well-made device that automatically tracks your workouts, steps, and sleep patterns without any work on your part.

If you have any question about the Alta, feel free to ask me in the comment section below.

Happy Tracking,

Jamie
