If you are one of the people who is tracking daily activities and is aimed towards a healthy lifestyle, those things would become much easier with the Fitbit. The Fitbit is a handy watch that doesn't just monitor a person's heart rate and movement but also works as an alarm and organizer with its calendar as well as its calls and text messaging alert services features.
Different Types of Fitbit
According to Macworld UK, the Fitbit is currently being offered in several different tracker wristbands: the Fitbit One, Blaze, Zip, Alta, Alta HR, Surge, and Charge 2. The Fitbit Alta and Charge 2 are usually being compared with each other because of their similar characteristics, as well as their pricing.
It is also good to know that while the Fitbit line does not come cheap, it also doesn't come with an outrageous price tag either. The Fitbit Alta, which costs about $130, is the perfect choice for people who need the essential tracker features that are usually offered by Fitbit but without the hefty price tag.
The Fitbit Charge 2, on the other hand, is priced at $150, which seems to be justified due to its additional tracking features such as guided breathing sessions, a cardio fitness level, a heart rate monitor, and multi-sport tracking features that the Alta lacks.
Some Notable Specs & Features
Both devices, however, are capable of SmartTrack auto exercise recognition, all-day activity tracking, move reminders, auto-sleep tracking, calendar, clock and alarm, text and call alerts, and most of all, an amazing five-day battery life.
According to The Christian Post, when it comes to customization, the Fitbit Alta is more flexible since it has partnered with top-of-the-line designer names such as Vera Want and Tory Burch for its customized line of wristbands. For users who are a lot more focused on fitness and lifestyle tracking, the Fitbit Charge 2 is obviously the better option with its more activity-specific trackers.
Much like the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Charge 2 also requires a connected smartphone. But the good news is, it is compatible with both Android phones and iPhones.
