Hallo,

mit dem Fitbit Alta HR bin ich nicht zufrieden. Zunächst zu den positiven Punkten:

Das Armband trägt sich sehr angenehm. Die automatische Aktivierung beim "Armschwenk" funktioniert immer tadellos. Die Farbe "grau" gefällt mir persönlich auch sehr gut. Die App ist einfach zu bedienen, übersichtich und sieht schick aus. Auch einfach einzurichten.

Aber:

Der Schrittzähler ist trotz mehrmaligem Nachjustieren in den Einstellungen einfach nicht genau. Da funktioniert einer mit GPS und EIngabe von Körper und Schrittlänge hundertmal genauer. Und ganz ehrlich, will man bei einem Tracker 17 mal die Werte mit einem x-mal teureren Vergleichen, nur um dann irgendwelche Fantasiewerte einzugeben, die dann halbwegs genau sind?

Und die Fehler potenzieren sich. Hab mit dem iPhone, dem Fahrradtacho und dem Garmin eines Freundes eine Strecke von 2,7 km so eingestellt, dass das Fitbit ungefär die korrekten Werte wiedergibt. Dann am nächsten Tag 12 km gelaufen: Fitbit zeigt 15 an. Jeder Hobbysportler dürfte den Unterschied zwischen 12 und 15 km laufen kennen.

Die Schrittanzahl ist genauso, 10.000 Schritte ist ja so das Standard Ziel. Ich fahre bei schlechtem Wetter mit dem Auto in die Arbeit, bei gutem mit der Vespa und an sehr guten mit dem Fahrrad. Bei beiden ersteren erkennt es das nicht, und aus ca. 200 Schritten in der Früh vom Bett bis an den Schreibtisch hat Fitbit schon 2000 als Erfolg gemeldet.
Es gibt eine App Drivebit, die man aktivieren kann um den Schrittzähler auszusetzen sobald man in/auf ein Vehikel steigt. Den muss man jedesmal ein- und ausschalten. Ich hab das oft vergessen und finde es auch sehr umständlich, aber eine kurze Autofahrt oder Ubahnfahrt (mit den öffentlichen ist es exakt genauso) und die gesamten Tageswerte sind schrott. Ein manuelles nachjustieren oder gar zurückrechnen gibt es in der App nicht. Das wäre aber dringend notwendig!!!
Fahrradfahren erkennt es zwar irgendwie, die Werte kommen mir aber auch übertrieben hoch vor. 25 min gemütlich Radln, 420 kcal, bei einem BMI von 24 und einigermaßen sportlich? WTF?

Mann kann natürlich auch seine jeweilige Aktivität zB Radfahren (Aber nur körperliche. Autofahren, Mofafahren nicht, das wird als Bewegung aufgezeichnet) in der App eingeben und es zeichnet die Daten auf, funktioniert nur leider genauso wenig.

Ich kann das Fitbit Alta HR uneingeschränkt nicht weiterempfehlen, die Leistungsdaten werden einfach zu ungenau erhoben, so dass sie für jeden Hobbysportler nutzlos sind. Für Menschen, die aus gesundheitlichen Gründen Sport treiben, kann ich das Fitbit Alta HR schon gleich dreimal nicht empfehlen, im Gegenteil, es könnte sogar gefährlich sein.

Viele Grüße

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.

Love the colour too. It looks pinker in the photos so I was pleasantly surprised when it came.

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.
J'ai donc sauté le pas et je ne suis pas déçu :
- c'est aussi discret qu'une montre, je n'aime pas ces énormes montres qui ressemblent à des mini-smartphones collés sur des bas de robocop !
- largement suffisant pour un usage non-sportif (qui ne me concerne pas particulièrement)
- permet une meilleure gestion de ses temps de sommeil (mes habitudes évoluent)
- vraiment stimulant pour marcher plus : j'ai un métier sédentaire, j'ai donc évité de fixer la barre trop haut (6000 pas /j). Toutes les heures un petit bip me permet de bouger un peu, j'apprécie vraiment
- la fonction "réveil silencieux" et tout a fait efficace et ... silencieuse pour le conjoint !
- changer de bracelet selon les tenues est un jeu d'enfant et les bracelets sont peu cher et très variés : c'est très agréable
- la batterie tient pour l'instant 4 à 5 jours sans recharge
- et enfin je ne loupe plus aucun appel téléphonique ni SMS grâce au vibreur, quand on coupe le son souent de son téléphone c'est vraiment un plus.

A la rubrique des petits moins :
- pour lire l'heure il faut parfois tapoter fort : un petit bouton aurait été plus simple
- l'écran est déjà un peu rayé
- 1 mm de moins en épaisseur aurait été plus seyant... ce sera sans doute pour les futures version !

Bref, je recommande sans hésiter.

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 love being able to see my messages and missed calls on it as I have no access to my phone when at work. This ensures I don't miss anything important.

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.

My only disappointment really is that my wifes £25 Chinese fitness tracker is actually better with far more functionality and an actual touch screen. To get similar functionality to her device with an actual FitBit you'd need to spend £170+.

I'm not bitter though as i bought this with Birthday vouchers and all in it only cost me £4.99. I also managed to get a rather nice leather strap from another seller which is way nicer than the rubber one it came with.

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!).
All'inizio ho dovuto chiamare l'assistenza perché non riuscivo a sincronizzare il braccialetto con l'app ed ho riscontrato massima disponibilità ed efficienza, tanto che il problema mi è stato risolto rapidamente.
Aggiungo (ma non fa assolutamente parte della recensione, né vuole assolutamente consigliare il braccialetto come sostituto dell'assistenza di un vero e proprio medico e/o nutrizionista), che da quando l'ho comprato e ho impostato l'obiettivo di perdita del peso, sono effettivamente dimagrito di tre chiletti e ho un bel trend in discesa (ci provavo da qualche anno ma senza risultati...). Questo perché, a mio avviso, il braccialetto ha il merito, se lo si vuole, di aiutare ad essere costantemente attenti alle proprie fisiologie ed ai propri comportamenti alimentari, ed in genere di vita (come ad es. regolarizzarsi con gli orari del sonno, ricordarsi di alzarsi dalla scrivania per fare due passi ogni ora, ecc. ecc.)

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.
Unfortunately my strap broke 3 days ago. It was still in warranty so I contacted amazon last night and I am just waiting for my replacement to turn up today. I will send mine back tomorrow. It still gets 5 stars from me regardless.

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.
