    Great all-around fitness tracker

    To set the stage, I'm not an athlete. I don't need heart rate monitoring, gps, or altitude. I just want something to motivate me to move more. And I found that in the Fitbit Alta. It has a clock function, so I don't need to wear a separate watch (yeah, I'm 'old', I want a watch on my wrist, not have to dig out my phone), which is GREAT! The Alta tracks your steps, minutes of activity, and automatically recognizes certain exercises, such as walking, running, and some others that I haven't tried yet. It also has this great little feature called Move Reminders. You can have it remind you to move a little every hour. It detects when you haven't taken at least 250 steps in one hour, and will remind you at 10 til the hour with these little motivation phrases. If you get up and start moving, it will come back again to congratulate you (again with cute phrases) on hitting your 250 steps. The reminder days/times can be customized so it isn't bugging you a 10pm when you're getting ready for bed. They say the Alta isn't necessarily waterproof, but the manual says it can handle the occasional splashes from whatever you may be doing. Sounds like they just don't advise you immersing it. Water resistance was a must for me. I also like that Fitbit ties in with several nutrition apps, such as My Fitness Pal, to automatically enter in your exercise for the day. So, if you're searching for an 'average persons' fitness tracker, search no further.

    I was weary to get a product that had not yet been released and reviewed but so far this band has lived up to everything I expected. I love having a silent alarm in the morning that wakes me and not my partner. The android app makes it easy to track EVERYTHING! The only reason I give this band a 4 star review instead of 5 is because it was a little difficult to set up and I had to play with it a bit before I could get it to connect it to my phone. There is also no guide for set up. I had to search the fitbit website for each separate detail in order to set up notifications for my phone, silent alarms, and how to get it connected to my phone. A quick start guide would have been nice.

    Screen Disappoints

    I was really excited to purchase my first FitBit and I was very happy with it at first. However, after about a day and a half of wearing it, I noticed a pretty significant scratch on the surface of the screen. Are you kidding me?! I can't even recall brushing it up against anything! After I noticed the scratch, I did some research online and found that many other customers complained of the same issues with their other FitBit. I am super disappointed and would warn others of this issue before making their purchase. If the screen scratches that easily, it should come with a protector.

    Alta is wonderful. Grab a bitbelt to keep it safe

    My wife and I love our Alta. Its like the flex being small however with the heads up display it gives you real time readouts without having to log into your phone like you did with the flex. Its smaller than the charge and looks really good on your wrist. We both give it two thumbs up. Only advise I would give is to grab a bitbelt to keep it safe from becoming unclasped.

    Upgrade from the Flex

    I like the Alta. It is a perfect upgrade from the Flex. I work in an office, and it is easy to lose track of time. I like the reminder to get up and move. Also, all your stats without syncing.

    I have had 3 different Fitbit and this one by far is the best one I have had it a week. The bands are interchangeable and you can change the clock face. It would recommend this one to anyone.

    good activity monitor

    I had been thinking about buying an activity monitor for a while but at a recent family reunion after seeing how many of my cousins had them I decided to get my own. I did the research and decided on a Fitbit Alta. For the price, I think this is a good product for measuring my exercise. I like this model because it has a large screen that shows the time, day and date with a turn of your wrist. With a tap it shows my steps, calories expended, time it takes to reach this level and distance I have walked. It also tracks my sleep patterns. Very interesting results. It vibrates when I reach certain levels or when I am inactive it gives encouraging messages. Also, what I really like is that it vibrates and then displays messages and phone calls coming to my smart phone. Cons: hate the strap. I find it very difficult to snap together. I had to use some pliers at first to get the 2 snaps in the holes. It is impossible to read the screen when out in the sun. Also is not water proof. That would be a nice feature. Over all, I am very happy with the Alta. It is comfortable to wear even at night.
