Review: Fitbit Alta HR

No one needs an activity tracker. Sure, you feel a whiff of superiority wagging your wrist and boasting about how much ground you’ve covered today. But let’s not pretend that wearing a wrist computer makes you a better person.

Fitbit Alta HR



Prettier than its predecessors with a litany of interchangeable bands. Automatically recognizes and logs activity when you’re walking, running, or biking. Battery lasts a full week between charges.


The silent alarm is too timid to reliably wake you up. Sleep insights are a bore. No GPS tracking or waterproofing; runners and swimmers are out of luck.
