      Answer

      The Alta does display actual steps and time. Depending on the display option you choose - vertical vs. horizontal - the steps might be abbreviated. So, for example, in the vertical display, 8,100 steps would display as 8.1 K. But, if that's an issue for you, simply change the display mode. The time is clearly and accurately displayed in both modes.

        NO IT DOES NOT. The person who said it does it wrong! READ ABOUT THE ALTA and it states it does NOT TRACK HEART RATE OR STAIRS!

          Answer

          YES! It will vibrate for calls and when you turn to look at the screen, it will say who is calling. The same for texts. I have experimented and for texts, it will read them up to a certain amount of characters. Idk what the exact count is, but it's a good amount. Long messages will stop with ellipses (...).

                The Fitbit Alta is an upgraded version of its Flex wristband activity tracker. Fitbit Alta has next-generation Fitbit features. The sleek design is comfortable to wear and the OLED screen tells you the time when you left the device up to read it. The Alta also provides call notifications, text messages and calendar reminders from your smartphone via Bluetooth.

                  No. The time comes on when you move your wrist upward or double tap but so far I have not seen the option to have it on all the time.
