    Great Starter Fitbit

    I bought the Alta HR for wife. She likes watches that are slim and have a relatively small face. However, with all that this Alta HR does it's perfect for her. She has teamed up with her friend to start exercising, and eating better to lose weight. She can now track her eating and walking. She loves the fact that she can track not only how many steps she is taking but also where they are walking to keep pushing their walking distance. This has been the best watch I have bought for her.

    Great for instant tracking of steps, heart rate, and sleep/exercise activity. Just has issues with syncing so I can't review trends and report for hours of sleep. I also find the food log helpful but hard to do on a daily basis. Simple classic design looks good and will match any outfit. Comfortable to wear all day and night.

    I've had this for about a month. When I was choosing which activity tracker to purchase, I was between the Fitbit Alta and AltaHR. So glad I got the AltaHR. There is so much more information you can get on sleep, calories burned, exercise. Slim design is great. I initially got the rose gold pink version for $40 more. Didn't like the rose gold. Purchased the blue gray. Love the color. It is a slight lilac color. Good accuracy for HR during all activities. It has motivated me to move more with the step reminders each hour and goals. I've also used the Withings version of the activity tracker and the Fitbit Charge. This is superior.

    I love that my Fitbit HR tracks my sleep patterns and daily/hourly steps. It reminds me to get up and walk if I've been sitting too long. Easy to read display and even vibrates and shows me text messages and phone calls from my cell phone. I love the small design as I've pretty small wrists. I also like the band as it has a buckle instead of the tab closure.

    Amazing lifestyle tool

    I received this Fitbit as a gift and it's a wonderful tool. I find the heart rate monitor helpful for mindfulness training and fitness training. The step count and distance are both useful for working out and interesting to check out throughout the day. The calories burned feature is nice as well. The app makes the product incredible. You can log your food and water intake as well as exercise that the Fitbit might not pick up (such as Pilates), it tracks your sleep including phases of sleep, and you can set goals in every category. It's like having your own personal support class in your phone. The app is there to remind you of your goals and cheer you on. It also sends weekly progress to your email, even when you're not checking the app daily.

    simple design and easy to read. the app has plenty of great tracking of sleep, steps, HR and more. for the price it really cannot be beaten. This is hands down better the Apple watch since the Alta last about 5 days versus barely 1 with the apple watch.

    I lOVE my FitBit Alta HR! I had the Charge HR before this, and loved it - but accidentally drowned it when swimming in Greece. I decided to try a new model after I came home to the States, and I haven't regretted this choice! I love monitoring my steps, sleep, heart rate, and fitness levels. And it's cute!

    I have really enjoyed the ability to track my steps, heart rate, sleep, etc. at all times. It provides a great overview that is automatic and easy to use.

    I enjoyed the Flex, which I'd worn for nearly three years before it ceased working. The additional features of the Alta, particularly heart rate tracking and sleep cycles, are most helpful. Plus, it's sleek and I no longer have to wear a watch.

    I like the slim design. Alta tracks steps and heart rate accurately. I love the sleep tracker. I've always had sleep issues and the Alta tracks how long you sleep and what type of sleep. My only complaint is it is yet one more device that needs charging.

    The Fitbit Ata HR does everything I want. It does a good job of keeping steps, sleep and heart rate. I like the smaller design and connecting to my phone for texts and incoming call notices is a plus.

    It provides useful info on steps, heart rate, sleep and analysis on levels of activity during the day. It does not track stairs though. All in all I'm happy with it

    For a first fitness tracker, the Fitbit Alta HR is just the thing. It has several features: step counter, calories burned, heart rate monitor, exercise minutes counter and distance tracker all on a slim unit that looks fashionable. As a person who is technologically challenged, the setup was very simple. It has really helped me keep on target for getting myself moving each day.

    I think these watches still have a ways to go with their technology but this is pretty good. I got it mostly for heart rate and sleep monitoring. I had read that fitbit's the best for sleep monitoring and Garmin is the best as a pedometer. So I went with Fitbit. The pedometer is pretty good unless you don't swing your arms when you walk. If I'm pushing a cart at Walmart it doesn't register that I'm walking. I don't know if it thinks I'm in a riding cart or what but I don't get credit. So at the store I track with my phone if I'm pushing a cart. I do hope they come out with one that doesn't sit up as high on the wrist but all of these watches tend to be thick, especially if they have so many features. I really like the sleep detection. I have been amazed but they say that is it's strong point. One other problem I had was that it stopped syncing for a while. I finally got online and learned how to reboot it so it started syncing again. That has happened 2 or 3 times. The heart rate thing has been helpful since I have POTS (a type of tachycardia) that can act up sometimes. I found after talking to someone a while, standing, I was able to tell them I need to sit down because see, my heart rate was over 120. I find it's better than just saying I don't feel well.

    Excellent fitness tracker, with some small issues

    I have a few Fitbits but bought the Alta HR for my fiance as a gift. She wears it daily and really enjoys it as a steps tracker but also for its ability to measure resting HR and also for sleep tracking. I think Fitness is a leader in fitness/sleep tracking right now since they essentially creating the category. I use other products like an Android app paired with a Pebble watch for sleep tracking and I think that while it has its benefits, overall it's not as cohesive or well polished as Fitbit's solution. The Alta HR is comfortable to wear and the small size should fit most wrists (hers and mine both). The two issues she's had with it are: 1) it's very difficult sometimes to detect a wrist flip or tap so it can display information to you 2) she's still unable to get her iPhone (on the latest iOS) to send it notifications even after repeated pairings and resets.

    I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my mom, she's new to all this technology. She immediately loved the step, heart rate, and sleep tracking. The size and color work perfectly for her.
