Are you new the Fitbit fam or just looking to spruce up your favorite smart device with some fancy new bands. You work hard to stay active and so does your Fitbit. Here’s how you can bring new life to your fitness routine with new Fitbit Alta HR bands.
You + Your Fitbit
Fitbits are awesome. The workout analytics you get from a Fitbit put every other smartwatch to shame.
You can use your Fitbit to track your heart rate, calorie burn, steps taken. You can even track your sleep and see just how many times you complete a REM cycle.
You Fitbit can tell you how many times you wake up at night and how many hours a day you are active. Your Fitbit can motivate you to reach new activity goals, it can remind you to get up and move. You Fitbit will vibrate with an activity reminder if you haven’t taken more than 250 steps per hour.
Your Fitbit can wake you with gentle vibration in the morning and challenge you to compete against your friends in daily, work week, or weekend challenges. You can sync your Fitbit to your scale and get the most accurate calorie burn details based on your weight and body fat.
As great as all these features are you can use any of them if you aren’t wearing your Fitbit every day. If you aren’t wearing your band every day, it’s hard to know for sure just how many calories you’re burning with all those steps!
Also, if you compete in challenges with your friends and family, you aren’t getting an accurate step count. If you really want to run with the big dogs, you’re gonna need every step you take to count!
Here are 7 great ways that spicing up your Fitbit Alta HR band collection can help you reach your new personal best.
1. Keep Your Workout/Sleep Goals
Having a Fitbit keeps you accountable, but only if you actually wear it. Having a band that you love and fits comfortably is the key to keeping your head in the game.
If your Alta doesn’t fit comfortably, you’re far less likely to wear it to track your sleep. Tracking your sleep is important because it can give you really helpful insight into your health!
Your Fitbit can tell you how much actual sleep you’re getting a night. It’ll also tell you if you are hitting an optimum amount of REM cycles.
If you’re waking up multiple times a night, you might not be getting enough of either. These insights can help you avoid feeling fatigued. Better rest means better workouts!
As for your workouts? You won’t get the benefits that come along with tracking steps, stairs, and calories burned if your stats aren’t accurate!
2. Keep Your Fitbit Looking Stylish
What is one of the biggest deterrents from wearing your Fitbit? Settling for the band that comes standard with your new device. Don’t let a standard band get you down.
Sure, Fitbits always look cool, but it may not always be the right for daily use. This usually means that the band that your Fitbit Alta HR came with doesn’t go with everything in your wardrobe.
A plastic band can be great for a trip to Bikram yoga or the rock climbing gym. That said, a plastic band just doesn’t pair well with a suit or an evening gown.
If you work in an office and your band doesn’t look professional, you’re likely to slip it in your purse or a desk drawer. Step up your Fitbit game with a band that is ready for the office!
Having an array of options can help you keep you stay accountable to take those extra 250 steps an hour!
3. Keep Your Workout Goals
Having a great band selection means wearing your Fitbit Alta HR every day! When you wear your band all day you can take advantage of features that remind you to get up and move.
This can be really helpful if you have an office job or if you’re trying to get more steps in throughout the day.
4. Get Durable Bands That Can Keep Up
Be sure to buy a band that can keep up with your active lifestyle. Mesh metal bands can be chic and sleek for the office, but they aren’t going to fair well in scenarios where they can be easily scratched.
Be sure grab a band with a plastic or water resistant finish. That way you don’t have to worry about sweat and scratches ruining your nicer pieces!
5. Go for a Swim with You FitBit
Not all Fitbit models are waterproof. Lucky for you, you can waterproof your Fitbit Alta HR! You can take your Fitbit Alta anywhere you want to exercise, even the pool.
While your device may now be waterproof, not all Fitbit Alta HR bands are. Make sure you have a couple of sleek but water resistant styles in your collection.
6. Track Your Heart Rate with an HR Compatible Band
Making sure your new FitBit Alta HR bands are compatible with the heart rate functionality is important.
Many people want to know their heart rate so they can track their caloric burn precisely. Without an accurate read, you can’t know for sure how many calories have been burned.
You also need this function so you can track your progress! Knowing how your workouts are progressing helps to keep you motivated and active!
7. Stay Motivated with New Fitbit Alta HR Bands and Accessories
Last but not least, we get tired of old things. It’s human nature. Naturally, as we tire of things, we become less likely to use them. Don’t let this happen to you!
Knowing that you will be less likely to keep up with your exercise routine is a big reason to keep your Fitbit game strong. Adding new bands to your collection is a great way to do this! Ensure your healthy habits with new Fitbit Alta HR bands.
Your body will thank you for it!
