I used to be very active, exercising a long, constantly on the move. Then I had kids. And yes, I do still love, in fact, chase them around all day long, but wouldn't exactly call it exercise, something that I am keen to change. And that's where the Fitbit Alta comes in. You see, this fitness wristband is the perfect motivator…

This Fitbit Alta fitness wristband, is actually a watch, but with heaps more functions, including; 
  • Tracking of activities all day long
  • Tracking of sleep
  • Reminders to move
  • Call, text and calendar alerts
This means that the watch tracks your every move throughout the day, including steps, distance and calories burned, how many minutes you are active -and when you are not!
And it also gives you friendly reminders to move throughout the day, to encourage you to move and exercise more, as well as it also tracks your exercises for you, and send you frequent emails so you can keep track of your workouts, and use them to help improve.
When you’re on the go and haven't got your smart-phone nearby, it also gives you notifications at a glance, so you can keep moving without stopping to pick up your phone.
The watch can also help you get a better sleep by tracking how long and how well you sleep, so you can see your sleep trends, and help create a better routine. And you can even set an alarm in the Fitbit app and the watch will vibrate to wake you.
But it doesn't stop there, the Fitbit syncs wirelessly to your computer and phone, and you can also log your food, for a complete tracing of your health.
The watch itself is very slimline and comes with a rubber band that can easily be replaced and swapped for other colours, including black, turquoise or blue or even metal or leather ones for a most stylish look -and the actual face of the watch lights up by double tapping it, or turning it towards yourself. And you can also change the clock face, and pick from a variety of layouts from vertical or horizontal to see your workout stats just how you like them.
Needless to say that the Fitbit is sweat and rain resistant, so it will still go the distance at a sweaty gym session.
The whole idea of the Fitbit is that being healthy is not just about exercising, it is about all the time, 24/7 - your every move, activity and exercise, including what you weigh, how you eat, and how you sleep - and this all helps determine your overall health, and when you reach your goals.
And the progress reports you can see online, on the phone and via graphs on the app, along the way, are designed to help you stay motivated. The Fitbit even rewards you badges along the way as you reach your goals to help encourage you to reach your daily or hourly goals even faster.
And you can even compete with friends by sharing stats and send direct message and compete in Fitbit challenges via the leaderboard on the app.
I am seriously really loving this Fitbit. Even on the days I feel I am not moving a lot, I am surprised at how much I actually am throughout the day, so in that way, it is helping me feel a lot better about myself - but still, I know it is far from enough, and the reminder to make me move, is really handy, and certainly very encouraging too. And overall, the Fitbit really is motivating me to be more active, and continue to beat my own goals, keeping me accountable of my every move. And all while looking super sleek and stylish on my arm too, regardless of if I'm in exercise clothes or 'normal' clothes!
