Fitness trackers provide an easier and more convenient way to track your progress towards a healthier lifestyle and achieve your fitness goals. There are a multitude of different fitness trackers on the market today, but you should go for only the best that suits your lifestyle and your unique requirements.
The best fitness tracker bands can track more than the steps and the distance you travel. Many of them can count the number of calories you burn in every physical activity or exercise type and there are certain models that can track your sleep and heart rate which is a cool bonus.
Alta by FitBit
For the style-conscious, FitBit Alta is a well-rounded fitness tracker band that looks great with its small and sleek 1.4-inch, 128 x 36-pixel OLED notification screen, which serves as the centerpiece of the 14mm-wide slim band.
The absence of buttons on the screen provides a cleaner and seamless look. To turn on the screen, simply tap the top of the strap or raise your wrist.
Alta comes with interchangeable straps, but beyond looks, this Fitbit device offers useful features like step tracking, the ability to calculate the number of active minutes and distance, and sleep tracking. It can track your workout and the number of calories burned, too, and its battery should last about five or more days.
One of the most practical features is the Alta’s compatibility with iPhone, Android and Windows Phones, unlike some fitness tracker models that are tied to one mobile platform or the other. This versatility in functionality helps to future proof the device if you decide to switch phones without losing your Alta in the process. This Fitbit model does also connect via Bluetooth 4.0 which is handy.
