Fitbit, the go-to name in fitness trackers has launched the successor of last year’s Fitbit Alta. The Fitbit Alta HR was launched a few days ago in the US and has been quick to make it to Indian shores. The Fitbit Alta HR overcomes the major drawback of its predecessor by adding heart rate sensor to the stylish and slim body. The company has also upped the battery life of the Fitbit Alta HR from 5 days to 7 days. The Fitbit Alta HR performs the basic fitness tracker functions like tracking your steps, calories and distance. The Fitbit Alta HR tracks your sleep duration and stages and wakes you up at the right time of your sleep cycle with the help of a silent alarm. The Fitbit Alta HR will soon be able to track your sleep stages with the help of an upcoming update scheduled for spring 2017. The Fitbit Alta HR has an OLED display that cycle through various stats and clock faces.
