I’ve been a big fan of Fitbit; I feel it really helps me feel motivated to get up and get moving! I recently upgraded to the Fitbit Alta from the Fitbit One. I really wanted something that was more permanently on my wrist and I didn’t have to worry about re-sticking to my pants or bra or whatever.
I got the Alta in the purple shade because who doesn’t love purple? It’s such a nice color that goes with a lot of the other colors that I wear. A.K.A. black and grey and white and purple.
Upon receiving this band, I promptly bought a leather band from Amazon. I just thought that this would be more secure and actually look nice when I had to dress up for an event.
I really like the Alta, I love how it’s on my wrist and I don’t attach it to a pocket, I love how it looks like a watch, I love how it buzzes every hour, in my activity hours, and reminds me to get up and move if I haven’t reached my step goal for the hour. I think this is a really fine piece of equipment and it’s not too bulky or ugly and I just really like it!
I wish that the Alta came with the stop watch feature like the Charge does. I realize that the Charge is much larger, and more expensive than the Alta, but I like the idea of being able to have a stop watch and not us my phone on hikes or runs (lol, what am I talking about, I hate running) or really just anything. It was like a week after I bought this when the Alta HR came out, I’m always curious as to how that would have changed my fitness. Overall though, I know that having the HR isn’t really that big of a deal. There’s also no buttons on the Alta, which is how it maintains it’s sleek and slim design! Sometimes though I have to hit the screen quite a few times before it’s responsive to me. Which kinda sucks and I have no idea if it’s getting worse or if it’s the same as when I first got it.
I think that’s all I feel about this little piece of technology! Overall, I really like it and would recommend it to others. In fact, I recommended it to my mom but she went with the Charge. So you can see where the family loyalty lies.
Anyhoo, I’m hoping to do more reviews and throw my opinion out into the already overcrowded opinion filled internet .
