Probably the best choice for the health-conscious fashionista, the slim and stylish Alta tracker could easily pass for a regular fashion accessory.
The original Alta has now been upgraded with a heart rate sensor and this is important when you’re holding strenuous yoga poses or working out on certain kinds of stationary gym equipment. Now you can get credit for calories burnt even when your step count isn’t busy going up! On top of that, you’ll still be getting excellent step and sleep monitoring and one of the best supporting phone apps on the market. Still, the screen is extremely small for at-a-glance stats checking and we found tapping the screen to change views or activate functions very hit-and-miss.
Step/sleep tracking, HR sensor, phone notifications, works with Android and iOS phones, R2 500
This is a stylish fitness companion for casual gym-goers, but it’s a lightweight for any real sports tracking.
