The Fitbit Alta is a low-key fitness tracker with smartphone alerts

Smartwatches
Last month at CES in Las Vegas Fit Bit showed off the blaze. A fitness watch with Smart Phone notifications. What the company didn't show you was the Fitbit Alta. Announced today this is the newest product to join the Fitbit family. It's slim like the Fitbit flex But also has a nice, large screen for showing information on activity progress along with incoming calls, text messages, and calendar notifications from your phone. The [UNKNOWN] is low key, which I like, but it can also be a fashion statement. The band is interchangeable so you can personalize your look with a lineup of accessory straps available in different colors and in both metal and leather. While it doesn't have a heart rate monitor like on a Charge HR, [UNKNOWN] does include a special move reminder. The band will encourage you to meet a mini-step goal of 250 steps each hour which [UNKNOWN] says is equal to about 2-3 minutes of walking. The company claims this could help keep your metabolism up and reduce the negative impact of sitting. As for battery life, the tracker is set to last up to five days. Which is the same as the Charger HR but worser than products from other companies like Garmin for example. The Fitbit Alta is available now for pre order for $130. It will make its way to stores in the US in March and retail locations around the globe a month later. For more information check out my article over at cnet.com I'm Dan Rosner for CNET and that was the first look at Fitbit Alter.
