    • Works fine for now, but.....

      from Thornhill, ON on September 16, 2017

      I have used various iterations of fitbit devices since about 2011. They have improved over the years (my first fitbit fell apart) and I am generally pleased with the performance. It has to be kept in mind that these are not medically calibrated devices, but do give you a general idea of what your stats are. The reason I have owned so many devices, apart from upgrading to new features, is that they stop working well after a year or so. Which is interesting as the warranty period is a year. My last fitbit was a Charge HR, and after about a year, the sleep stats started to be inaccurate, and exercise goals were not always documented, even if the same amount of exercise was done as the day before. Rebooting the device helped for a while, but the errors showed up repeatedly. What about the Alta HR? it is attractive and the regular watch clasp on the band is a significant improvement over the previous alta band which had a tendency to release itself at inopportune times. The colour of the band is quite nice, and I don't think I will need to buy any accessory bands to match various outfits. Now, if it could last more than a year.....

    • Pleased so far

      from Scarborough, ON on July 29, 2017

      I've had the Fitbit Alta HR for about 2 weeks. I used to have a Misfit, which I lost when it fell out of the bracelet, and then a Jawbone, which fell off my wrist! The Alta fastens securely, like a watch, so I'm confident it will not fall off. Sleep tracking is automatic and accurate. It buzzes discreetly when I get a text, but sometimes the screen displays the sender and sometimes it doesn't. That's why I would give it a 4. If this app would let me indicate stars. Which it won't. C'mon Best Buy!

    • All that I need

      from Sudbury, ON on April 7, 2017

      I started out with a fitbit one years ago, which I used for a long time. I have tried so many wrist fitness trackers since (with and without HR ability), not just from fitbit, but other brands as well. I loved all of the functions offered by the Garmin Vivosmart HR but I found that it was significantly off with: my step count (underestimated), my heart rate (all over the place), and my total calorie burn (overestimated). The charge 2 and the alta were far more accurate with steps and HR but the charge 2 felt uncomfortable on my small wrist. I ended up returning both, wishing the alta had the HR monitoring ability... and now it does! Although sleeping with it is never going to be as comfortable as not having something on my wrist, I can still sleep with it on. It feels the best on my wrist and is more accurate than most other devices I have tried (excluding step counting from clip on pedometers). The step count and the calorie burn estimate are quite accurate and I'm happy to have finally found the right device.
