The Alta HR also introduces two dynamic sleep tools. Sleep Stages makes use of accelerometer data and heart rate variability to estimate how much of your sleep is spent in light, deep, and REM stages, as well as how much time you were awake, every night. Sleep Insights on the other hand, uses data from over 3 billion nights of logged sleep to provide guidance and coaching to help improve the quality of your sleep.

Aside from the above, the Alta HR brings together popular features and notifications to keep you connected and motivated:

  • All day automated tracking of your most important stats – heart rate, steps, distance, calorie burn, active minutes.
  • SmartTrack automated exercise tracking records your activities in the Fitbit App, so you can easily track your progress.
  • Reminders to Move helps you to stay active and reduce sedentary time, which can contribute to to the prevention of Diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases.
  • Call, text, and calendar notifications keep you connected and updated, so you can focus on your day.
  • Connect to one of the largest social fitness networks  in the world through the Community tab for support and inspiration in reaching your fitness goals.

You can customize the Alta HR with accessories to fit your own style and personality.
