Fitness tracker manufacturer Fitbit has introduced Fitbit Alta HR, which is said to be the world’s slimmest wristband with continuous heart rate tracking.
The Alta HR combines the benefits of PurePulse heart-rate technology, automatic exercise recognition, sleep tracking, battery life of up to seven days, and smart notifications.
It features Sleep Stages, which utilizes heart-rate variability to estimate the amount of time a user spends in light, deep, and REM sleep, as well as time awake each night, to better understand their sleep quality.
Its Sleep Insights uses the whole of a user’s Fitbit data to provide personalized guidance on how to improve sleep for better overall health.
“Alta HR and these powerful new sleep features demonstrate our continued focus on evolving our innovative technology to deliver deeper, more actionable insights to help our users improve their health,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.
“The miniaturization of our PurePulse heart rate technology opens up exciting opportunities for future generations of devices and new form factors. Our advances in sleep will provide millions of users around the globe accessibility to invaluable insights that previously could be obtained only through expensive lab tests.”
In April to May 2017, Alta HR will be available in the Philippines for P8,690 in Digital Walker, Beyond the Box, select Toby’s stores, iBOOK, iCENTER, Mobile1, Globe, Gadgets in Style, Hivemind, Lazada, Zalora, Timeline, The Inbox Store, iLiberty and Rnnr stores.
