Fashion meets fitness

from Tech Advisor

The Fitbit Alta is a mid-range activity tracker for the everyday fitness fan, which is a real winner when it comes to slim, chic looks and a range of fashionable accessories.

Pocket-lint

High praise for fitness tracking basics

from Pocket-lint

The Fitbit Alta sits on the fence compared to the wider activity tracker market. It misses out some key features, such heart-rate monitoring, elevation data, GPS and waterproofing. However, for basic activity tracking the Alta is fabulous. Accuracy is good overall (if you ignore the distance measure, but step-tracking is fine), Smart Notifications are useful, the OLED display is lovely (and way better than that in the Flex), and the app is great.

High praise for low-level fitness tracking

from Pocket-lint

In terms of personality, especially with one of the new accessory straps attached, the Alta is easily Fitbit's most stylish tracker to date. However, it is just a little too basic in functionality terms for us to give up on our trusted Charge HR just yet.

Focusing on style and nailing the basics

from PCWorld

The Alta is one of the best fitness bands around for the average person. If you’re training for a marathon, it’s probably not the best pick, but it’s a solid, well-made device that automatically tracks your workouts, steps, and sleep without any work on your part. The ability to swap out bands according to your mood or the event you’re attending is a plus.

Convenient smart bracelet, suitable for everyone

from LaptopMedia

The considerable increase in the sales of wearable tech is not by any chance accidental for those who monitor the technological evolution. There are more and more manufacturers who offer a variety of smart watches and bracelets, which makes one’s choice tougher. Fitbit and their Alta bracelet targets those of you who want this kind of gadget to be small and discrete. Looks and reliability are important to you. Of course, the focus here is on sports and apart from some well-known functions, you also get new extras such as activity reminders. Furthermore, Fitbit Alta can notify you in case of a phone call or text message, and monitor the quality of your sleep. All this is thanks to Fitbit’s app which hides a ton of other surprises.

Mobile Syrup

The perfect Fitbit for almost everyone

from Mobile Syrup

Seeing dramatic changes in one’s health still requires motivation and discipline, of course, but it’s possible to see small but meaningful changes with just one device. It may not be perfect, but at $169.95 CAD, the Alta can do a lot of good for not significant amount of money. In this, it’s one of the easiest fitness trackers to recommend.

Alphr

A solid tracker for casual fitness fans

from Alphr

There’s a reason the Flex is one of the most popular fitness trackers on the market, and Fitbit has pulled off a tricky balancing act here by simultaneously resisting the temptation to reinvent the wheel while adding in a handful of useful extras. The Alta is just as light and discreet as the Flex; it looks a lot more stylish; and it has impressive battery life, despite the additional screen. The smartwatch-lite functions are a welcome addition, too.

Expert Reviews

Simply a great fitness tracker

from Expert Reviews

The Fitbit Alta is a great fitness tracker for the typical user. While it’s not as feature-packed as the excellent Garmin Vivosmart HR, it’s not really trying to compete on that level. The Alta is aimed at someone who’s either looking to become more active, or perhaps upgrading from a more basic device like the Fitbit Flex.

Fitbit's best-looking wearable to date is limited in scope

from TechRadar

Fitbit's Alta has it where it counts, namely the killer week-long battery life, customizable styles, and the solid Fitbit companion app as a backbone. But there are a few frustrating design choices that keep this from being a "must-have."
