What has changed

In view of Alta Fitbit HR is almost indistinguishable from its predecessor, but on the back side of the housing is a heart rate monitor. According to the manufacturer, in conjunction with Texas Instruments, they have developed a compact sensor, which is 25% less option in the Charge 2. With it, the bracelet detects the phase of deep, easy and quick REM sleep. In addition to detailed statistics, the application displays a recommendation for improving the quality of sleep. The same feature appeared at Jawbone a few years ago, but better late than never. And after the update next month will catch up and Fitbit Charge with 2 hours of Blaze.

The fitness tracker can count steps and automatically determine the type of physical activity, but to swim with it in the pool is still impossible — only the most basic Fitbit bracelet Flex 2 is not afraid of immersion in water. The battery life Fitbit Alta HR increased from 5 to 7 days. On the OLED screen displays the activity indicators, and notifications for incoming calls.
