Fitbit Alta HR, Fuchsia, Small (International Version)
Love my fitbit already. So easy to use straight out of the box and will hopefully get me out and running more! Interested to see how the sleep function works tonight and how little sleep (I have a 2 year old) I actually get. I was worried the small might be a little on the small side but it's actually pretty big. Definitely make sure you measure your wrist before purchasing.
Product is good when its works but I have had to reset recently and now stopped working completely. Its just over 6 months old and do not seem to have any returns rights on Amazon
après pas mal de lecture sur le sujet, les avis sont assez unanimes : Fitbit est leader sur ce marché et le Alta HR est le meilleur.
Disappointed as it has stopped working properly after only 4 weeks. Battery is charged and it only works for a couple of minutes then powers off and won’t switch back on without plugging it back in.
I love my fitbit. I really wanted to know how many steps I was doing per day and how I was sleeping. The app is great. The only negative is that the screen does not stay on for longer and the tap doesn't always work well. I read a tip elsewhere that tapping the top where the screen attaches to the wrist band works better and so far I have had much more success.
I've had this for a year now and i can safely say i would be lost without it. I bought it as a prompt to get me moving more and lose weight (which i have), but it goes further than that. With the calorie target burn it makes you think more about what you're eating versus your activity that day. I love the sleep tracker, and it has made me feel much more in touch with my body - i.e. before i check my sleep levels in the morning i guess how much deep sleep i've had and i'm pretty spot on now as judging by how i feel. The app that's free to download is great, offering menstrual cycle tracking too which again has brought all the readings together (heartrate and sleep). It's really very interesting and beneficial to see what your body is doing that you wouldn't normally know about. I'm now one of those annoying people that raves about fitbit to people that notice me wearing one, and have bought both my parents one. When i bought it i thought it was indulgent, but now i think it's it's essential in trying to keep me on track health wise. In terms of functionality and wearability, i take it off for showering but that's about it. It needs a full charge once a week or a couple of shorter ones as i tend to do. There have been some sync issues which seems to be a bit of a niggle for Fitbit judging by the forums, but these usually resolve themselves in a day or so and you never lose any data.
The device itself seems pretty good, it's lightweight, small, comfortable, seems pretty accurate and has very good battery life. But it's not widely advertised or made very clear before purchase that if you want some of the more in depth features like SLEEPING HEARTRATE and SLEEPING RESTLESSNESS you need to subscribe to FitBit Premium for £7.99 per month. I bought this device for the very purpose of trying to establish why I keep waking up in the night only to find that when I set it up I see a few things in the app behind this pay wall which wasn't made clear before purchase. I will definitely be doing some more research and looking out for a similar product from a different manufacturer and swapping the FitBit when I find something suitable. Samsung Health for example does everything I want without a monthly subscription, the only reason I didn't choose a Samsung smart watch was because I already have some nice watches so just wanted a small HR band to sit alongside them. As soon as I find a small accurate HR band from Samsung, Polar, Garmin etc I'll be ditching the FitBit ecosystem straight away.
While I like very much having a Fitbit and use it daily, there are several issues with the one I bought: 1) it doesn't turn on reliably when I tap it or twist my hand (I have to tap quite hard, several times to get it to switch on); and 2) having worn it only for a few months, the wrist band keep dropping off despite it being the original one and I've never tried to remove it on purpose. I'm going to have to buy a new wrist band and hope that the problem doesn't reoccur. So all in all, rather expensive for what I got.
Well what can be said, its a FitBit Alto HR. So i'm generally happy with only a couple of issues. The FitBit app offers no means to extend the duration that the screen stays active for. Also, to confirm to other potential buyers, this does not have a touch sensitive screen. It actually uses the built in GSensor to tell if it has been touched so touching the screen twice will not activate it in-fact tapping the screen twice fairly firmly will activate it instead.
This is slim-line, and sits comfortably on my wrist almost all the time. it is very discrete, but that does mean that the display is rather small. I have switched off the function whereby it lights up when you turn your wrist. That is partly to save on battery life (it needs charging every 3-4 days) and partly because it irritated me, especially at night. to get the full benefit you do need it linked to a computer, preferably a smart phone
Lo uso da più di un mese e mezzo e sono super soddisfatto. Non tanto per le singole funzioni di rilevamento ed i grafici che l'app produce (sicuramente ottimi ed abbastanza intuitivi), ma perché mi ha effettivamente consentito di monitorare il mio fitness ed anche la mia alimentazione. L'uso del braccialetto e l'app permettono infatti di mettere in rapporto gli alimenti assunti durante il giorno (se si ha la costanza di inserirli manualmente volta per volta) e metabolismo basale + calorie bruciate con il movimento e la frequenza cardiaca, consentendoti quindi di verificare il raggiungimento degli obiettivi prefissati. Il rilevamento del sonno, infine, è graficamente accattivante e dà la parvenza di esattezza (anche se, chiaramente, dato che si dorme bisogna fidarsi... secondo me ogni tanto inventa... ma tant'è, nel complesso è molto meglio delle app utilizzabili con il cellulare posizionato sul comodino o vicino al cuscino!).
I love the Fitbit Alta. It looks neat on a small wrist and the display is easy to read except in sunlight. I bought a black leather strap from ebay for £6 which fits the Alta really well. The app works really well except it’s very American so the challenges and groups are all based in the States. The data downloads in a few seconds, you can see how many calories each activity has burned. The Alta recognises certain sports once they’re entered but sometimes activities are recognised as Sport such as gardening but you can customise the Sport activity to gardening for example although there aren’t many activities to choose from. Also activities are only recognised if they are longer than 10 minutes. It can track your journey by gps on the app linked with your phone, monitor your heart rate, keep a track of your weight, give you a fitness level based on VO2, gives you a step count and data can be entered for food calorie count as found on my fitness pal. My only gripes are that the Alta is not very responsive; waving my wrist just does not work to turn it on so I end up whacking it a few times to wake it up; it sometimes doesn’t recognise a walk and it’s too American eg my cross trainer is an elliptical. Other than that I’m very happy with it.
You do have to watch how many calories it gives you for exercise though. It is off by a fair bit so if you are trying to lose weight then do not go by the calories it gives you. I use mine in conjunction with MFP. It regularly has me as a TDEE of 2500 per day, I know this is wrong...... I have had this for 2 weeks short of 1 year and have done many tests with it. I know I cannot eat 2,000 calories per day and lose weight. Which is what fitbit tells me. If I follow my fitness pal and eat 1,500 per day then I lose weight so my tdee must be somewhere around 2,000.
Wanted to love it but the health warnings are carefully hidden. The HR function causes hand numbness and arm tingling. When you search online people are reporting all over Fitbits forum but Fitbit themselves deny there is an issue. There is a problem with the HR function, it gives off an electric pulse that actually causes nerve problems. Do you research carefully and be aware.
