Fitbit Alta HR


Fitbit Alta HR review: Fitbit's updated Alta isn't just about heart rate monitoring, it wants to help you sleep better

Attractive and sleek design ; Sleep Stages information is useful ; Comfortable ; Long battery life

Basic exercise tracking ; No Connected GPS ; Slightly unresponsive display

One positive to come from the reduced refresh rate of the heart rate monitor is that the Fitbit Alta HR can last close to seven days on a single charge. The Charge 2, on the other hand, tends to last closer to five days.

Fitbit Alta HR review: The best everyday fitness tracker?


The Fitbit Alta HR is pitched at the everyday user rather than the active one, so for some, it won't quite do enough and given the Charge 2 is only

Slim and stylish design ; Comfortable to wear ; Interchangeable straps ; Heart rate tracking ; Accurate activity tracking ; Great sleep tracking ; Good week-long battery life ; Great app platform

Not much cheaper than more capable Charge 2 ; Lacks a few features like Guided Breathing ; No option to start a workout from device ; No waterproofing ; No altimeter

The Alta is by far the most stylish Fitbit thanks to its slim body and interchangeable straps. Add heart-rate tracking and improved sleep tracking and the Alta HR steps things up to a notable degree.

Fitbit Alta HR review


It's got a new heart-rate sensor, but is the Alta HR still a tracker's delight?

Exercise auto-tracking is excellent ; Heart-rate tracking adds depth to stats ; Sleep tracking has promise ; Small and discrete

Not water-resistant ; Screen can be unresponsive ; Lacks an altimeter and guided breathing

A fine all-rounder with excellent autopilot tracking, but the Alta HR falls just short of greatness

Fitbit Alta HR review


Activity trackers are everywhere. Whether you run 10K every weekend or do little more than plod to the bus stop in the mornings, many of us have some form of sensor strapped to our wrist or shoved in our phones, tracking our every movement. When those...

Slim, comfortable design On-point steps counting Accurate heart rate reader

Screen slightly unresponsive Not the most dynamic sports tracker Display difficult to read in bright light

With the Alta HR, Fitbit has taken what was already a solid activity tracker, and made it better. It’s not flash, it’s not elaborate, but it is slick and with its newly added heart rate tracking skills it's a more well-rounded fitness companion for...

Fitbit Alta HR Review: In Depth


Our Fitbit Alta HR review takes a close look at the latest Fitbit fitness tracker, complete with digital display for real-time feedback of your stats.

Instant feedback ; HR sensor ; Customisable design

Not water resistant ; Sensors can be tricked

The Fitbit Alta HR doesn’t offer much of an improvement over the existing Charge 2, and in fact you might struggle to notice any real difference at first. However, the more compact design and improved screen sensitivity is definitely a step up over...

Fitbit Alta HR review


Guess what: Fitbit's newest tracker is its best one yet. There are a lot of Fitbits to choose from, but after wearing all of them, the Fitbit Alta HR ( £92.14 at ) wins our vote. It has almost all of the same features as the Charge 2 (...

The Alta HR has a slim and stylish design with 7-day battery life, and all-day fitness and heart rate tracking.

It isn't water-resistant, and notifications can be difficult to read. You can't manually start workouts. Automatic exercise tracking and no buttons means no on-band controls.

Long battery life and stylish design combined with improving app software make the Alta HR the best all-around fitness tracker for most people.

Fitbit Alta HR review: Better sleep analysis and heart-rate monitoring, but it's pricey


At £30 more than the regular Alta, and £10 less than the Fitbit Charge 2, the Alta HR struggles to make a case for itself

All-in-all, the Fitbit Alta HR is typical Fitbit. It’s competent, easy to use and understand. It tracks the things casual fitness fans need, will help them keep on top of their daily activity, and understand more about when to do more and how to get...

Review: Fitbit Alta HR


Fitbit's most impressive fitness tracker isn't the biggest or the one with the most features, but a perfect mix of reliable activity and sleep tracking, ease of use and a refined design.

Fitbit's Alta HR is an ideal fitness tracker for any level of user. It has a bright screen, tracks activity and sleep 24/7, and can determine what sort of activity or exercise you are doing. Ideal for users who like to wear real watches, or don't like...
