You’ll turn heads with the Fitbit Alta, a new fitness tracker that stands out from the crowd for its looks, versatility and functionality.
Without a doubt, fitness trackers are the latest arm candy. Both celebrities and noncelebrities alike are using them as accessories. But picking out the best one to suit your lifestyle is no easy feat. As a multi-tasking woman with a busy schedule, you’ll need a fitness tracker that fits seamlessly into your daily routine – to take you from the gym to the office to a night out with the girls. Sounds like a tall order? Not quite. The recently launched Fitbit Alta was designed with the modern woman in mind. This fitness accessory packs a punch in terms of its health and fitness features. Plus, it is Fitbit’s most stylish tracker to date.
Keen to find out more? Here are three reasons why you’ll love the Fitbit Alta:
1 It is fashionable and customisable With its slim and sleek design, the Fitbit Alta looks more like a piece of jewellery. What’s great is that its wristband is interchangeable. Choose from classic fitness bands, soft premium hide leather bracelets and a luxurious, hand-polished silver bangle (coming soon). Invest in more than one wristband so that you can match your band to your outfit of the day. The classic bands are ideal for the gym, while the leather types are office appropriate. What’s more, the wristbands are designed to ensure allday comfort, so you’ll barely even feel the Fitbit Alta on your wrist as you zip from one appointment to the next throughout the day.
2 It makes fitness goals more achievable Walking the recommended 10,000 steps daily can be a challenge, especially if you are in a deskbound job. The Fitbit Alta has a Reminders To Move function that nudges you to take a short walk every hour by sending you an on-screen message. Not only does this encourage you to take more steps without drastically altering your lifestyle, but moving around regularly can also help boost your metabolism and reduce the negative impacts of sitting. Research has shown that prolonged sitting is linked to an increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Note that the function can be personalised, ensuring that you only get reminders when wanted.
3 It has the latest technology Keeping track of your workouts is also easier with the Fitbit Alta, thanks to its Automatic Exercise Recognition function. Utilising SmartTrack technology, it instantly recognises and records continuousmovement activities, including walking, running, outdoor biking, on ellipticals, as well as general categories of aerobic workouts (such as dance classes and cardio kickboxing) and sports (including basketball, football and tennis). This means you can skip the step of manually keying in the type and duration of workout every time you sweat it out. There are also other advanced features, including the Smartphone Notifications function, which alerts you to calls, text messages and calendar notifications by vibrating gently and via onscreen messages. Its long battery life is also impressive. You can wear your wristband for up to five full days without needing a charge.
