Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it until it Died Before purchasing the Fitbit Alta HR, I was the owner of a Fitbit Flex 2. It was great and it served me well for about 2 years until I lost it. I loved it and was sad that they discontinued the Flex 2, so I decided to upgrade to the Alta HR. I purchased it in December 2018 and now it's September 2019. Not even a year in and it died on me completely. I charged it for 48 hours, and it wouldn't hold a charge and had a dead battery signal with an exclamation mark. Luckily Fitbit has replaced it without question. However, after reading a lot of reviews, it seems that there are many others who have complained about the same issue. Prior to it failing, I would say that it was great. I was able to set my goals and when I met my daily goals, it would vibrate and a graphic of fireworks and a rocket shooting would indicate that you've met your goals. They improved on the dieting feature, where in the past, you had to manually input your calories and what you ate. Now it has a database of burgers, apples, coffee that automatically calculates the calories. They also have an ovulation and menstrual tracker for women as well, within the app. The sleep tracking component, I still find lacking. It tracks your sleep but still fails to provide you with solutions for improved sleep. The device itself is aesthetically pleasing and I've received many comments on it. It looks like a stylish watch. You can even class it up by purchasing a fancy metal band on amazon for weddings or galas. Overall, I think the performance of the Alta HR is great. I would have given it 5 stars, if it hadn't failed on me in less than a year. My last complaint about it is that there's a green light in the back, which measures your heart rate. It is always flashing. The device isn't perfectly flushed against my arm, so whenever I'm sleeping, sometimes when I move around, I wake up from the blinking. It's not waterproof either like the Flex 2. I'm hoping that the replacement Alta HR I received doesn't break down in a year as well. Fingers crossed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great By far one of my best purchases. It's extremely helpful for sleep, exercise and small daily reminders. Excellent to give yourself that little push towards a healthier self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love!!!! Bought this as a birthday present for myself and love it so much. It's not too big so I can comfortably wear it all the time, the black works with all outfits so I never have to worry about it clashing with anything. The vibrating alarm wakes me up so much better than a typical noise alarm and I love being able to track my daily steps as I work in an office and didn't realize just how little I get up and move.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Get it somewhere else I love my Alta and find that it's great motivation to get on my feet. Don't buy it from Chapters though. I made the mistake of ordering it on boxing day and decided to cancel my order and get it at Best Buy instead so that I could get some extra warranty (which is decently priced). The warranty ended up being necessary since it stopped working after the first few days but they replaced it right away with no hassle and my new one hasn't had any problems. Chapters has a terrible return policy with these, they'll replace it if it's unopened or was delivered with noticeable damage, but other than that you're on your own, if you end up hating it then that's just too bad. I was also told that if it malfunctions later on I have to take it up with the actual company which is a pain living in Canada. Just cancelling my order was a difficult process and it took two weeks to actually get my refund, hence my low rating. It's nice to have and if you have the money to spare then it's worth the price, but get it somewhere else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek and elegant. I've had many fitness trackers in the past. As someone who has really thin wrists, it is really hard to find one that fits and one that doesn't look too bulky on my wrist. The Fitbit Alta is sleek and elegant and looks great on my wrists. There are some bugs with the app that irritates me, hopefully fitbit will address these issues. As for tracking, tracking seems reasonably accurate and at the very least, provides me with a basic guideline on my activity levels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So in love I was gifted a Charge for Christmas a couple years ago. The band started to separate so I called Fitbit. Unfortunately, they didn't have mine in stock, so they sent me a new Alta instead. I love it. I do miss the floor counter that the Charge offered, but this looks sleeker on my slim wrist, I can change the bands, and it displays my texts for me. I'm in love with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fitbit Alta - not durable My husband and I both bought a Fitbit Alta a few months apart. We had a great time using it - challenging ourselves and even encouraging others to purchase them to get more fit. However both of our fitbits had straps fall off. There is no where local to get a repair. The only option is to buy a new set of straps. At a minimum of $40plus tax each. Unfortunately we not longer use this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE fitbit I had the flex before this, and then I got this and I lost it (on vacation, forgot where I took it off since it's not waterproof - poor choice) and I repurchased it again because I love it so much. I have 5 different bands for it, with the pink leather it looks chic and classy for everyday wear. Love the counter, I find the sleep analysis really accurate and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my fitbit! I've had this Fitbit for a year and I never take it off. The step reminders keep me moving throughout the day, and I like that it tracks my activities and knows if I'm biking, running, or on an elliptical. One of my favourite features is that I can do weekly challenges with my friends. It keeps me motivated to make all my goals. The only thing I miss on this model is the stair counter, but I'd rather have the smaller size than the stair feature, so overall I'm happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wished Alta HR came out sooner Was debating between Alta and Charge HR because I really wanted the heart rate function (if only I waited a bit longer!). Ultimately went with Alta because it's more sleek and matches work attire better. The band didn't last the full year, but Fitbit support is great and sent me a new one under warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Love My Fitbit Alta! I purchased my Fitbit roughly a year ago, and have loved it ever since. The information about my step count and sleep cycle is super interesting and I really like its integration into my life. It has helped me live a more healthy lifestyle. Only complaint is the band is cheaply made, I have had it replaced already. Fitbit warranty is very good and helpful though. It is definitely a great product though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love my Fitbit, I have been wearing it everyday since I bought it about three weeks ago. The step count is pretty accurate and it definitely motivates me to reach my step goals each day. It's fun being able to challenge others too through the app. The only thing that is disappointing (and this has nothing to do with the function of the Fitbit) I ordered my Fitbit online and when I received it in the mail the box was already opened. The Fitbit seemed fine, I was just disappointed that the company would send out an item that was already opened, especially ring that it's an electronics item. 5 star review for my Fitbit, 1 star for the indigo company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I've been using this Fitbit for about two months now. It tracks steps pretty accurately, it's a nice wristband, and the battery life is about 5 days. I love how it has a display screen that can tell you the date and time and the number of steps you've taken. The downsides are: the sleep tracking is not accurate at all, it will often say I've slept 9 hours when I know I haven't even slept 8, and the active minutes feature is not very precise for me as I can go for a long walk and it will not register. Overall, I found it was a good buy. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I got the Alta for myself a couple of weeks ago and so far so good! I love the slim look of it as I have small wrists (vs the charge which looked bulky on me). I also really like how it automatically picks up when I workout and sleep!! It really does motivate me to keep moving ( the app is great!). The one con for me is that the band picks up dirt in the grooves of the bracelet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Activity Tracker I have been a Fitbit lover ever since the Charge came out. I just bought the Alta to replace my Charge because the Fitbit straps are versatile and the device and straps are easier to clean. I recommend this to any one looking to start keeping track of their fitness goals. The app is very easy to use and it measures basic features such as sleeping patterns, calories burned and steps taken. Their customer service is exceptional when you contact them, they respond diligently and come up with reasonable solutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than Charge HR I previously owned a charge HR and found that the HR portion was never accurate and the silicone sleeve stretched and broke within 6 months to a year (it isn't possible to replace the band for the charge). I bought the alta specifically because I like having an option to see the time and step count, and because you can replace the band with a different colour or style. I like that it's narrow, lots of display options and i have found the sync with my phone (texts and calls) VERY convenient. This is the best fitbit to date!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has some faults Wearing this really does serve as a reminder and motivation to reach the daily goal however the design for the Alta band is ridiculously difficult to put on especially if you have smaller wrists. It's not at all easy to snap the little nodes on if you're going to be using the innermost holes. Clasping a bracelet on by myself would be easier than wearing this. For women who wear bracelets and have small wrists - you'll know the struggles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE my Alta! I received the Fitbit Flex for Christmas and upon doing a little further research, I opted to exchange it for the Alta. I could not be happier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too many software problems that never seem to be addressed I debated for a while about getting a FitBit and finally bit the bullet and got the Alta. Initially I loved it, but now I'm wishing I never wasted my money, for several reasons. #1 - I wanted a band that would track my running without the necessity of using cell phone data for measuring distance. All the reviews I read confirmed that the Alta tracked distance. This is somewhat misleading. It does indeed track distance, but only your overall distance traveled in a day. There is no way to determine how far you walk/run during a particular time frame unless you use the FitBit app, which means you need to use your phone/data. #2 - the bands do get dirty and are almost impossible to keep clean. #3 - there are endless software problems. Since I've had my Alta, with every update to attempt to fix an existing problem, the problem remains and another bug is added. The latest bug prevents the Alta from syncing altogether which means the band is pretty much useless. Since I've been waiting for over four months for one bug to be fixed, I don't hold out much hope that the latest bug will be fixed anytime soon. There are so many other options out there for trackers. I highly recommend you look at another brand.
