Fitbit stays step ahead with Alta HR

Techstination feature for Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   When it comes to fitness bands, there is lots of competition.   But the folks at Fitbit are staying a step ahead.   The latest release is the Alta HR…the thinnest band with a built in heart rate monitor that you’ll find.  Senior Product Marketing Manager Christina Kothari says it can help get you in the proper zone when working out or walking….

“Another feature that you get with heart rate is more accurate calorie burn.  So we use your heart rate in addition to your movement to better track your calorie burn all day.  And then you can also get resting heart rate trends within the app or your current resting heart rate on device.”

The Alta HR,  has other features too including smartphone notifications, and it sells for about 150 dollars.  It’s also easily customized with Fitbit or third party bands.
