MY THOUGHTS ON THE FITBIT ALTA HR

For those that may not be aware of what I’m talking about, a Fitbit is basically a wireless tracker that measures data such as the number of steps walked, heart rate, quality of sleep etc. and as weird as this may sound, my Fitbit has slowly become a huge part of my life. 

I’ve had my Fitbit for 4 months now and I can honestly say the novelty of it still hasn’t worn off. I thought maybe after a week or so I would get bored with it, take it off and then forget all about it for 6 months or something, but the truth is it hasn’t left my wrist for longer than 24 hours.

Until you have your own Fitbit you will never truly understand just how addicting it is. It is so addicting that all you ever want to do is walk around, just to make sure you get as many steps in as possible during the day. You can also take part in challenges with other Fitbit users on the app, which I find keeps me even more motivated to stay active because I always want to win.

The Fitbit tracker I have is the Alta HR which is more of a slimline design. I wanted to keep it as slim as possible as I like to wear thin accessories on my wrists, so obviously this design was the perfect one for me. It originally had a black rubber strap, until I changed it a few weeks ago to this metal ‘unicorn’ style strap I got for my birthday (which I am absolutely in love with btw).

Both me and Darren have our own, so as you can imagine we are always in competition with each other, even without the challenges on the app. We always ask each other throughout the day “how many steps are you on?” just to make sure we haven’t been overtaken by each other.
We both have our daily step goal set to 10,000 steps, which is something else that keeps you motivated because you always want to reach your goal for the day. Then when you do reach it your watch will buzz and start showing a cute little celebratory picture on the screen.

Another thing I love about the Fitbit is that it tracks your heart rate and as you may know I’ve been trying to up my fitness levels, so this has been the perfect thing to keep track of. Each week I go onto the app and look at my resting heart rate and obviously the more exercise I have been doing the lower my resting heart rate has been, meaning my fitness is improving each week. 

I know these things are not cheap but if you are motivated enough and know you would use it then I would definitely recommend you look into it and find out which one would be best suited to you. The straps are interchangeable, the battery life lasts just under a week and if you’ve been sitting down too long it will buzz to remind you to move. I just love it and wouldn’t be without it. 

I hope you have the best day & be happy.
Lots of love, Xandra Rose 🙂

    I love my FitBit! I’ve had the Charge HR for a few years now, maybe a little over 2? I got it when it first came out as a gift from my mom. It’s about to break (the back where the charger goes and the button on the side keeps falling off and is only held in place because I have a little cover on it) so I want to get the Alta HR when it breaks actually. I love how it looks!

      Oh wow! That is definitely dedication if you’ve had it for over 2 years, I’m very impressed haha. I can imagine myself having mine for years as I love it so much. I would definitely say try out the Alta HR I personally find it very stylish but that’s because I love thinner accessories on my wrists x
