Fitbit has improved on almost every aspect of the original Fitbit Alta, and created an impressive wearable for everyday wear.

The Gadgeteer

Solid build quality, does basic features well

from The Gadgeteer

I really like the Alta HR’s slim, stealthy design with the Special Edition gunmetal version definitely being my fitness tracker of choice. Fitbit has done an excellent job creating a less is more fitness band that is comfortable to wear with solid features and specs. While the HR is lacking a few nice to have features, its form factor, heart rate tracking, accurate activity tracking, excellent sleep tracking, week-long battery life, and stellar app platform/ecosystem more than makeup for it.

Gearburn

Isn’t going to solve any motivation issues you already have

from Gearburn

The Fitbit Alta HR does everything it says it will, but it requires more from its user than the average human will be eager to give. It needs a very specific type A personality, someone obsessed with control and has their life planned to a T. Someone who knows exactly how many metres they just swam, and someone whose battery is always full.

The Telegraph

A stylish device but lacking substance

from The Telegraph

Ultimately, I don't see the point of a Fitbit as a fashion statement. With a few more features the Alta HR would be a first rate fitness band paired with its already excellent app. As it stands the Alta HR is a solid tracker, but there are more comprehensive devices available there if you want that extra push.

Know Your Mobile

A fantastic all-around good choice

from Know Your Mobile

The Fitbit Alta is great for those who want to make sure they’re getting enough exercise and/or movement throughout the day–it’s perfect for office workers and people who want to be reminded to move around. But it’s for more than people who just want to track their calories burned or distance walked. Those who want to monitor their heart rate—think athletes or those with specific physical conditions.

Expert Reviews

Pricey, but still a great fitness tracker

from Expert Reviews

If you’re a fan of the Fitbit way of doing things, the Alta HR won’t disappoint. As an easy, hands-off way to monitor your daily activity and pinpoint how and where you can improve, the combination of the Alta HR and Fitbit app are difficult to beat. Fitness fanatics will benefit from pricier fitness wearables with support for more accurate ANT+ or Bluetooth sensors and those looking to specialise in one sport should choose an activity-specific device, but for most mere mortals the Alta HR is a near-perfect compromise.

Waking up the wearables

from finder.com.au

The Alta HR isn't a tracker for super-active people looking to comprehensively track every aspect of their fitness regime, at least not exclusively. Instead, the Alta HR is designed to appeal to the general market, with a design that can suit almost everyone, and interchangeable bands to suit almost any occasion.

The Indian Express

The slimmest one, also smarter than before

from The Indian Express

Should you buy? Yes, if you want the thinnest Fitbit around. There is nothing really wrong with the Fitbit Alta HR and you will enjoy wearing this device, which should be able to help you make informed decisions about your health. Meanwhile, I think the Fitbit Charge 2 is still a great product offering and those who don’t want to spend so much on the Alta HR, this has to be on the radar.

Android Authority

A well-made, basic activity tracker

from Android Authority

You pay a little more for a Fitbit as compared with similar products from other manufacturers, but in exchange you get a reliable brand with a thriving ecosystem. It’s nice to wear, good at what it does, and has a decent amount of features for basic health and light activity tracking. If you are a casual user looking to collect a little data about your health and maybe shed a few pounds, then the Fitbit Alta HR is a fairly comprehensive and very reliable choice.

Pocket-lint

A fantastic activity tracker with plenty on offer

from Pocket-lint

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 hasn't added waterproofing or elevation data to the Alta HR and some of the useful Charge 2 features have also been omitted, but the addition of the PurePulse heart-rate monitor is a huge win for such a slim device.

Mobile Syrup

A good place to start

from Mobile Syrup

Alta HR's smaller footprint, more stylish looks and simpler interface will make up for its shorter feature list. If that's you, then the Alta HR will make for a great fitness tracker. That said, if you see yourself developing a more complicated workout routine, then consider the Charge 2 or the recently announce Garmin Vivosmart 3.
