Fitbit have continued to expand their range of wearable fitness trackers with their latest product – the Fitbit Alta. Cheaper but just as impressive as the Fitbit Blaze, the Alta was designed with function as well as aesthetics in mind.
The Alta has a similar design to the previous Fitbit Flex, but with a removable screen and several bands in line with the Blaze.
Much like the Blaze, the Alta has on-screen call, text, and calendar notifications, as well as vibration feedback to help with achievements and goals. The Alta also boasts automatic exorcise recognition which will recognise an activity is being completed and record it to the Fitbit app. A feature that the Alta lacks which is available in other Fitbit products is a heart rate monitor, which might be a deal breaker for some.
The Fitbit Alta is another product in Fitbit’s push to maintain their position as a top brand in wearable tech. The Alta is available for pre-order now for AUD$199.95. As with the Blaze additional bands can be purchased. The Classic Band comes in 4 colours and will cost AUD$49.95 each. The Leather Band comes in 2 colours and will cost AUD$99.95. The Metal Bracelet will cost AUD$169.95.
