Fitbit Alta review: An activity tracker you won't be embarrassed to wear


You can spot a Fitbit from across the room. The Fitbit Charge HR and Surge, the company's two most popular trackers, aren't exactly jewerly, and I would never be caught wearing one to a wedding or another formal event. But Fitbit is changing.

The Fitbit Alta is a stylish fitness tracker with swappable bands, basic phone notifications and week-long battery life. The new "Move" alerts bring something new. Fitbit's software is still one of our favorites, and has the largest social base as well

There's no heart-rate sensor, and it can't be worn in the shower. The tracker is expensive for what it can do and so are the accessory straps. The display is difficult to see outdoors and is susceptible to scratches, and notifications are hard to read

While ultimately a more stylish (but heart-rate free) version of the older Charge HR, the Fitbit Alta is a winning fitness tracker with solid style appeal.

Excellent Device for telling time and fitness tracking

Disappointing for the money


My previous smart watch was faulty and the same brand was not available. I purchased the Fitbit alta and apart from the message notification it doesn't seem much better than a pedometer which would have been a quarter of the price. In hindsight I would...

Great but go for Charge HR 2


I bought this for my mum and got the Alta because I thought she'd like something more feminine looking but I think the small screen is annoying for her and I wish I got the Charge HR. The prices are the same and the Charge HR has slightly more...
