The second of today’s Connected Fitness and Health blogs gets to grip with the Fitbit Alta HR, an ultra-thin activity tracker and one of the most popular fitness wristbands on the market. Don’t forget to check out our earlier entry on the powerful Garmin Vivosmart 3.
The Fitbit Alta HR is billed as the world’s slimmest fitness wristband, a notable achievement when you consider how many monitoring features this activity tracker comes with. Indeed, the Alta HR tracks calories burned, steps taken and distance travelled, exercise intensity and active minutes in addition to automatically monitoring your workouts via the SmartTrack exercising recognition feature, ensuring every step you take in the right direction is recorded for review.
The Fitbit Alta HR also features a dedicated sleep tracking feature that monitors your sleep and provides detailed information about how long you spend in light, deep and REM sleep cycles. Powered by PurePulse heart rate technology, the Alta HR’s sleep tracking ability helps you to understand how daily activities affect sleeping patterns. Use this information to develop the right fitness plan for your body.
