Fitbit recently announced the availability of the Fitbit Alta HR, its new fitness wristband. The newest addition to Fitbit’s line of popular slim trackers now come with a heart rate monitor and an updated strap.

I love the Alta for its slim build and design. It has a long battery life, it looks good and does what its suppose to do without the bulk. The only drawbacks it had was that it doesn’t come with a heart rate sensor and the strap was uber hard to secure. Thankfully, Fitbit’s new Alta HR fixed all that and made it even better.

The new Alta HR features the same slim build and design as the original, but this time brings with it Fitbit’s PurePulse heart rate sensor (a hotly requested feature), new sleep tracking technology, additional battery life of up to seven days and a new, easy-to-put-on more secure strap.

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… 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,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.

The Fitbit Alta HR will have a price of Php8,690. It will be available in the Philippines starting April in Digital Walker, Beyond the Box, select Toby’s stores, iBOOK, iCENTER, Mobile1, Gadgets in Style, Hivemind, Lazada, Zalora, Timeline, The Inbox Store, iLiberty and Rnnr stores.
