SOLID CHOICE FOR RUNNERS
We tested this stylish band over a series of runs, and found it lightweight and reliable. It’s a straight-talking choice for walkers and runners wanting easy-glance stats (calories, distance, heart rate, etc) at the wrist, with the option of drilling down via an app. The OLED display is bright, but needs a firm tap, and when positioned correctly on the wrist the Alta HR does a solid job of heart-rate tracking (it automatically tracks sleep, too). Partner it with the Fitbit Coach app, and you’ll gain a progressive training package to match your increasing fitness.
