Fitbit Alta Turns Motivation into Your Best Accessory

2016-02-01_Blog_730x485

Believe it or not, something as simple as a ring or a bracelet can serve as a reminder to help you stay focused on your health and fitness goals. Back in the day—before smartphones and note taking apps, it was common to tie a string around a finger to remember something. The reasoning behind the old ritual: the knot keeps the thought close at hand. And it works!

Psychologists have found attaching meaning to an object you wear can go a long way towards remembering—especially if what you want to remember involves action, like walking more during the day. But what if your arm candy could take it a step further, by actually notifying you that it’s time to get up and move? Today, it can. Introducing  Fitbit Alta™, the tracker that turns motivation into your best accessory.

Fitbit Alta Fits Your Personal Style

Fitbit Alta is the perfect blend of fashion and function. With a slim design and sleek, interchangeable bands, it’s the perfect accessory to help you track steps and activity day and night.

Packed with cutting-edge technology and the best Fitbit features, like SmartTrack and smart notifications, Fitbit Alta tracks activity, including steps, distance, calories burned, and active minutes. And it shows the time and your stats on a bright, OLED tap display. You can even customize the clock face and choose between a portrait or landscape layout. Plus, it’s water resistant and the battery can last up to 5 days—and that’s just the beginning. Here are 5 ways Fitbit Alta turns motivation into your best accessory.

1. Fitbit Alta Offers the Right Look for Every Occasion

Thanks to a sleek lineup of interchangeable metal, leather, and classic bands (sold separately), it’s easy to elevate your style with Fitbit Alta. A simple switch can take you from a yoga class to a classy dinner, or from work to workout.

2. Fitbit Alta Features Smart Notifications

Stash your phone nearby in a pocket or purse and stay focused on your goals! Fitbit Alta keeps you connected at a glance with call, text, and calendar notifications.

3. Fitbit Alta Tracks Your Sleep & Helps You Wake Up

When you wear Fitbit Alta to bed, your tracker will automatically capture your sleep data, and then wirelessly sync to the Fitbit dashboard, where you can see your sleep trends over time. You can also set a silent, vibrating alarm to help you wake up more peacefully in the morning. (No more jarring alarm clocks!)

4. Fitbit Alta Detects Exercise with SmartTrack

Fitbit Alta uses SmartTrack to automatically detect when you start exercising, and then conveniently logs those workouts to your Fitbit dashboard. That means you’ll be able to get credit toward your weekly exercise goal for workouts like running, elliptical, or biking without ever pressing a button.  

5. Fitbit Alta Reminds You to Move

Need an extra nudge? To keep you on track, Fitbit Alta can send you small reminders to move throughout the day. The on-screen messages will encourage you to reach mini-goals of 250 steps per hour—and they’ll help you celebrate, too.

Fitbit Alta works with the Fitbit app and dashboard, where you can set goals, log food, record workouts, see progress, and more. You can also use it to sync your data with popular fitness apps, including FitStar, connect with friends, and compete in challenges.

  • Great feature, but a little bummed to see that this is only available on the Alta. Would have loved to have it on my Blaze as well.
