Alta is Fitbit’s stylish new “everyday” fitness tracker

The Alta's tracking capabilities are almost identical to the Fitbit Charge; it monitors steps, calories, workouts, and sleep. As with the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Alta is able to send users alerts during periods of inactivity.

One new addition is an OLED touch screen for displaying fitness metrics, notifications, and the time. Fitbit says the Alta should get five days of battery life per charge.

The Fitbit Alta will retail for AUD$199.95 when it launches locally in mid-March. Additional bands will be priced at AUD$49.95 for elastomer, AUD$99.95 for leather, and AUD$169.95 for stainless steel. Elastomer and leather bands should be available in early April, but Fitbit has yet to specify a local timeframe for its metallic option.

Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and Rebel Sports will range the Fitbit Alta.
