06.03.17 Fitbit adds heart rate monitoring to its Alta line and improves sleep tracking


Fitbit has updated its popular Alta tracker. The Alta HR is an update to last year’s Alta, a well designed piece of hardware that has since grown into the second-best fitness tracker (behind the company’s higher-end Charge 2). The biggest addition is heart rate monitoring that bumps the price up by $20 to $149. The company is also announcing updates to its sleep tracking, which take advantage of the aforementioned heart rate monitoring to differentiate sleep states, including light, deep and REM. It’s a marked increase over Fitbit’s existing sleep tracking, which relies on the on-board accelerometer to gauge how much a wearer moves during the night. That manner of tracking paints a picture of sleep length, but offers little in the way of quality. The company adds that it will also be harnessing the three billion hours of sleep it’s logged from users to better tailor sleep recommendations in much the way it does with fitness goals.
