I’ve been a long time Fitbit user over the years and I’ve had good times and bad times with their devices. A few months ago, my wife and I decided to get the new Fitbit Alta Fitness TrackerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 1. Our FitBit history includes the Fitbit FlexFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 2, Fitbit ChargeFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 3, Fitbit Charge HRFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 4, and the Fitbit SurgeFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 5.

The Pros

If you’re on the market for a basic fitness tracker that’s not a full smartwatch, then the Fitbit Alta Fitness TrackerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 1 might be the one for you. The price is a little higher than some of the competition, but you’ll get text and call notifications on the device. If you’re interested in a reasonably priced smartwatch, be sure to check out the Fitbit BlazeFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 7.

The battery life is similar to the previous Fitbit Flex and lasts almost a full week before needing a charge. The charger cable is short, but I like the clamp design on this charger better than the previous ones that were prone to issues. The good news is that you can find a decent Fitbit Alta ChargerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 8 online and even some with longer cables.

If you’ve used a Fitbit in the past, then you’ll be familiar with the setup and pairing process. You’ll want to charge it before pairing because there’s probably an update you’ll have to install. I paired it from my iPhone and didn’t use the USB dongle to do it through a computer.

One of the nicest features compared to other Fitbits is the automatic workout tracker. If you go for a walk or run, the Fitbit Alta Fitness TrackerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 1 will automatically detect the increase in activity and track it as a workout. This feature is something that even the high end Apple Watch doesn’t do yet.

Another cosmetic feature is that you can change the bands in case you get tired of a color. You can get Fitbit-branded ones or after market bands for a decent price.

The Cons

There’s not much to mention in the way of cons for the Fitbit Alta Fitness TrackerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 1. For the target market, it comes in with a good feature set.

You don’t want to wear this fitness tracker while swimming or probably not even in the shower. It can get wet, but you don’t want to submerge it into water.

The other feature the Fitbit Alta Fitness TrackerFitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Review 1 is lacking is a heart rate monitor. At this price point, there are other fitness trackers that offer an HR monitor and there are others that don’t. If you want to have an accurate count of your calories burned, having a heart rate monitor is a nice feature because it’ll give you a more accurate count of calories burned.

Conclusion
