Just a month after launching its new Blaze fitness watch at CES 2016, Fitbit has come out with another new fitness tracker in the form of Alta. While it might have the same form factor as the previously released Flex and Charge wristbands, Alta is built with a number of new features into it.
One of them is a bigger OLED display that users are able to interact with via tap gesture. In addition to that, the Alta also comes with removable bands which rather similar in nature as per Blaze.
Apart from that, other features of Alta are rather standard to Fitbit family though including all-day activity tracker, reminders to move, auto workout and sleep tracker as well as automated wireless sync. Not to forget, it also comes with a battery life of up to 5 days as well as sweat, rain and splash proof.
It also able to display notification for calls, texts, and calendar but since there is no built-in GPS and heart rate monitor in it, this means a much more serious user might want to consider higher end Fitbit product such as Blaze or Surge instead. Unlike Charge, Alta also doesn’t come with altimeter which means that it not able to track the amount of floors that users might have climbed.
Price-wise, the new Fitbit Alta is priced at RM 600 while the additional band will costs from RM 130 to RM 420 depending on the respective materials. The new tracker as well as related accessories will be made available in Malaysia this March.
