Fibit's new $129 Fitbit Alta is a slimmer and sleeker version of the Fitbit Charge
Last month, Fitbit announced the Blaze which was the company's first attempt at beautifying their lineup of fitness trackers which are currently still the most popular ones on the market. Continuing on that theme of making fitness trackers look better, Fitbit is announcing the Fitbit Alta today which is essentially a Ftibit Charge that has been slimmed down to the form factor of the Fitbit Flex.

Just like the Fitbit Charge series, Fitbit's new Alta tracker also has an OLED display but this time the display is vertical and will be able to display notifications horizontally just like on the Microsoft Band. In terms of features, the new Fitbit Alta comes with basic features like being able to track your steps and automatically track sleep, the Alta also features Fitbit's automatic exercise tracking.
The downside of the Fitbit Alta however is that it doesn't come with a HR sensor but on the upside, the bands on the Fitbit Alta are replaceable. Starting at $129.99 (~RM 550) and available for pre-order today, you can get the classic band in black, plum, teal and blue. But if you want to get a better look out of it, Fitbit is also offering premium band options like a metal or leather option that costs up to $99.95
