July 2017 Gym Bag: FitBit Alta HR



Note: Compete received a personal review on this newest FitBit option from a Compete reader.

From its heart-rate tracking, tap display and sleep tracker to its long battery life, this Fitbit Alta HR. does it all. The super slim model (.61”) reminds me when to move, monitors my sleep stages and alerts me of texts, calls and calendar events. It syncs wireless and fits seamlessly into my daily routine. It has not only become a part of my fitness routine, it’s become a part of me.

Although water resistant, the Fitbit Alta HR is only splash proof and the user manual recommends not using it in the shower or submerging it in water. I liked the Fitbit Alta HR so much I purchased one for my cousin, my mother and my father hoping it would get us all more fit. We share our stats, stay connected and motivate each other through the Fitbit mobile app. I like the ease of the app for tracking weight, measuring water intake and logging food. If I’m not near my mobile device, I also can view my progress with the customizable dashboard on my computer.
