Fitbit Alta HR fitness tracker review


A sleek look, heart-rate features, and low price make the Alta HR perfect for casual athletes.

Slim, sleek, and unobtrusive design ; Precise heart-rate tracking ; Impressive activity recognition ; Useful sleep-tracking data

Dim, finicky screen ; Not waterproof ; No manual fitness profiles or relaxation features

The Fitbit Alta HR is an impressive fitness tracker at its price point. It may lack a few bells and whistles found on its pricier counterparts, but the Alta HR’s compactness, the accuracy of its heart-rate tracker, the smart activity recognition, and...

Fitbit Alta HR review: a much better activity tracker than I expected


Not exactly new, but just new enough

Fitbit’s most stylish tracker ; Added heart rate sensors ; Week-long battery life ; Advanced sleep tracking software

No control over tracking exercises ; No GPS for accurate distances ; Tap-sensitive display is annoying

Fitbit Alta HR review: The new king of the hill


Fitbit's newest fitness band shrinks the best stuff down into a tinier package.

The Alta HR has a slim and stylish design with 7-day battery life, and all-day fitness and heart rate tracking.

It isn't water-resistant, and notifications can be difficult to read. You can't manually start workouts. Automatic exercise tracking and no buttons means no on-band controls.

Long battery life and stylish design combined with improving app software make the Alta HR the best all-around fitness tracker for most people.

Fitbit Alta HR


With the Alta HR, Fitbit updates its most stylish tracker with continuous heart rate monitoring, better battery life, and smarter sleep tracking. Fashion-conscious self-quantifiers: This may be the device you've been waiting for.

Long battery life. More in-depth sleep tracking and insights over its predecessor. Accurate heart rate and step count readings. Slim and comfortable to wear 24/7 with plenty of band options.

Screen is occasionally unresponsive. Buckle feels a bit flimsy. No altimeter. Lacks GPS.

Ultimately, the one to pick comes down to one question: Would you rather spend your money on a better design and longer battery life, or more functionality and features? While the Alta HR can keep pace with the Charge 2 on most levels, it makes slight...

Fitbit Alta HR review: Is the HR a good Alta-rnative?


The Fitbit Alta HR packs a heart-rate monitor and a better battery than the standard Alta, but is it worth the price? Julia Breakey takes it for a spin...

Fitbit Alta HR In-Depth Review


In what may seem like a sea of Fitbit models, the Fitbit Alta HR attempts to strike the balance between what folks want as a straightforward activity tracker, while making some nods towards basic workout support. I've been wearing a unit now for about...

A first-time wearables user reviews the Fitbit Alta HR


Fitbit has eight different fitness trackers on the market right now. And while the company's financials are downright troubling, it's still shipping more product than every other wearable company. That's due in part to tremendous name recognition,...

So, all in all, a positive experience. We’re still hoping to bring the device back to life, but maybe you’ll want to consider that $40 warranty. It’s also worthy considering a less expensive device. The Fitbit Flex, for example, has much of the same...

Fitbit Alta HR Review: Slim, Stylish and a Bit Frustrating


The $149 Fitbit Alta HR is a sensible update to the original Alta, with heart rate monitoring and better sleep tracking, in an equally slim and stylish package. However, if you don't mind a slightly thicker, but just as attractive, device, consider the...

Heart rate improves calorie-burn estimates ; Attractive and slim design ; Detailed sleep tracking and analysis

More dependent on app than other Fitbit devices ; Exact step count doesn't show on display ; Need to tap multiple times or harder than expected

The Fitbit Alta HR is a slim and stylish tracker with a heart rate monitor, but it has some usability issues.

Fitbit Alta HR review: $150 for a true all-day, all-night fitness tracker


Elevating the humble Alta with a heart-rate monitor and sleep facts.

Slim, comfortable design. ; Accurate heart-rate monitor. ; Excellent auto-recognition and recording of activities. ; Sleep Stages and Sleep Insights are important improvements to overall sleep data. ; Great battery life.

No connected GPS. ; Not easy to see heart rate during a workout (unless heart rate is your default screen). ; Nighttime heart-rate data and Sleep Stages separated on two different graphs.
