As the name suggests, the Fitbit Alta HR is the successor to last year s Alta fitness tracker. Apart from the continuous heart-rate monitoring capabilities, the tracker also features SmartTrack Auto Exercise Recognition, Reminders to Move, Auto Sleep Tracking and Sleep Stages. With a display onboard, the Alta HR also sends call, message, email and calendar alerts to users. Like a smartwatch, the Alta HR also lets users customize the clock faces.

As you would expect from a fitness tracker, the Alta HR monitors a user s number of steps, distance covered, calories burnt, and minutes that the user is active. More importantly, Fitbit is also focusing on tracking users sleep. The company has introduced two new sleep tools Sleep Stages and Sleep Insights. Sleep Stages uses accelerometer data and heart rate variability to calculate the amount of time one spends in light, deep and REM sleep. It also calculates the time spent awake at night to better understand one s sleep quality. Sleep Insights executes this by using Fitbit data gained from over 3 billion nights of logged sleep to provide a personalized guidance on how much sleep is required and how to improve it for better overall health. Sleep Stages will be available globally in Spring this year and is compatible with Alta HR, Blaze and Charge 2 devices as well. Sleep Insights will be compatible with all Fitbit devices.
Another talking point of the Alta HR is its battery life. Fitbit says that the wearable is good enough to last for up to seven days on a single charge.
