Fitbit Alta HR Fitness Tracker with Heart Rate Monitor - Small - Black
- Great product
from Mississauga on September 3, 2019
This product is excellent, water resistant and provides very useful data
- Frustrating Piece of Equipment
from Calgary on August 10, 2019
I like the features, I like concept, I absolutely detest the inability of this product to keep in sync. It constantly loses bluetooth connectivity and I have to re-pair over and over again. I spend way too much time trying to get data out of this thing. I fail to understand how, in this day and age, it is so difficult to get of piece of equipment to communicate through bluetooth over a distance of less than 12 inches. Garbage.
- So far so good

I really like the heart rate monitor and it was very easy to set up.
- Doesn’t last
from Calgary on July 26, 2019
This device seems to have a 1 year lifespan. The back sensor window cracks with normal wear, and the screen fails at a year. Happened to me twice. HR when worn on wrist during workout isn’t accurate.
- Returned the Fitbit
from Toronto on July 25, 2019
I don't see the value of this device if you own a smartphone. It literally offers what any smartphone offers - just download a health app from play store or the apple store. Though I guess it promotes fitness by encouraging you to move when you've been sedentary for an extended period of time? If that's value, the value ends there.
- Breaks after 1 yr
from Caledon on July 24, 2019
Stopped working after 1 and half years fitbit offers 25 % new fitbit but prices are higher than retail. Purchased New inspire Hr ..see how long this one lasts
- Watch broke after just over one year
from Ontario on July 10, 2019
It seems that Planned Obsolescence is indeed at work with this watch. It broke after 1 year and 5 months. Fitbit offered a 25% discount on a new watch but even with the discount their price was higher than our local Best Buy. I loved the watch and will buy it again with a Best Buy guarantee this time.
- Programmed obsolescence
from Montréal on April 27, 2019
My device suddenly stopped working after only 1 year and 4 Months. Fitbit will not replace it, because it is over the one year warranty, though a device like this should function for long over a year. Likely do to programmed obsolescence, as apparently many other people have been experiencing the same issues. https://medium.com/@andyyeh/fitbits-lesson-for-everyone-6f0cc172b36e
- Room for improvement.
from Ottawa on April 16, 2019
Holds a charge for over 5 day, also continues to count steps if it the battery does die. I like the fact that it has a silent alarm, however without an actual button to turn it off, I am rapidly trying to tap the touch screen to try & turn off the alarm. It doesn’t count stairs. I also wish it was swim proof & had swim tracking. Overall, I am pleased with this watch.
- PSA: Does not count "stairs climbed" like product description claims
from Toronto, ON on April 1, 2019
Product does NOT contain an altimeter and cannot track stairs climbed. The description is simply wrong.
