BASIC: FOR A LIGHT WORKOUT WHICH INCLUDES WALKING, YOGA AND STRETCHES:
FITBIT ALTA HR
Fitbit Alta HR gets our vote for the best fitness band around, which blends style with function. Alta HR embeds a powerful heart rate sensor in one of the slimmest designs you will find to help track your heart rate which is central to everything you do.
The benefit of continuous heart rate monitoring is to effectively track stress, cardio fitness, and calorie burn levels, and accordingly optimize the workout to reach the desired fitness goals. The medley of sensors on Fitbit Alta HR with the intelligent Fitbit application on your phone will help you understand and gain insights on the right zone for your goals which includes finding a sweet spot for pace, effort and intensity according to your body and activity. Furthermore, the Alta HR also incorporates effective sleep tracking, which is another important daily activity that most of us ignore. Effective sleep cycles shape your health, moods and weight. They help you perform well, stay productive, and fight stress levels and depression. Fitbit Alta HR is designed to monitor different sleep stages – awake, light, deep and REM. Based on the daily night routine, Alta effectively helps you design a routine to get the best quality of rest. Fitbit Alta also can receive notifications such as calls, texts and calendar alerts from your smartphone on the touch display. Alta’s battery life is also pretty long lasting from 5 to 7 days unlike smartwatches which need to be charged overnight.
Fitbit has more than 50 million active users globally with a comprehensive activity and sleep database and patterns to help you gain tremendous insights on which routine is the best and most effective.
Fitbit Alta HR ranges from USD150 to USD180 depending upon the color, material and the interchangeable special edition premium bands. Fitbit has been partnering with fashion brands such as Tony Burch & Public School to have designer styled product lineups. Do check out the one for Alta band designed with Public School.
