Fitbit is one of the most well-known activity-tracking wearables company, covering a huge portion of the market share and encompassing a large following worldwide. Nowadays, however, competition have increasingly stiffer, as more companies are introducing their own versions of fitness trackers. Hence, to counter these competitors, Fitbit has introduced the Fitbit Alta into their portfolio. The Alta not only looks great, but it also has other features that set it apart from competitors.
Fitbit Alta – Effortlessly Stylish Design
In terms of design, the Alta is easily the best-looking amongst its Fitbit siblings. It is only 15mm in width, making it one of Fitbit’s slimmest wristband activity trackers thus far. Its chamfered metal frame adds to the overall aesthetic value, making it look sleek and more visually appealing.
To add more variety to its looks per your preference, the tracker itself is fitted with clips that allow for easy removal and exchange of straps. The Alta comes with a default flexible elastic strap, but there are leather options available in the market, as well as a metal link bracelet option for that smarter look. This feature also has another plus point – you do not have to replace the whole tracker if you damaged the band somehow.
Fitbit Alta – Commendable Features on a Mid-Range Activity Tracker
Despite its mid-range price tag, the Alta still features a host of functions – combining activity-tracking and smartwatch capabilities. The Alta features the basic activity tracking capabilities, such as determining your steps taken, distance traveled, burned calories, et cetera. The Alta has a sleep monitoring function that records your sleep patterns and notifies you on when you were restless, your length of sleep, and average sleep time. Knowing your sleep patterns is essential information to have, as having a good night’s sleep is one of the top priorities when maintaining fitness.
In the meantime, the Alta also adds smartwatch functions into the fray. The Caller ID function will notify the wearer on who is calling and if the caller is in your phone’s contact list. The Alta can also display text messages onscreen, so you need not reach into your pockets or bags for your phone to keep track of incoming messages.
Impressive OLED Display for Sharper Legibility
Besides its svelte and stylish aesthetics, the Alta sports an impressive 1.4-inch OLED tap display. The OLED display comes with a 128 x 36pixel resolution, making Alta’s screen easily legible even when viewed outdoors under bright sunlight. Information presented on the screen is simplistic yet sharp and clear, hence there are no issues when reading the information while you are in motion.
