I don't usually buy the latest greatest thing, but I've been saving up and researching this since it came out & wanted to finally buy it! Product has worked awesomely since Day 1. I spent a LOT of time researching which Fitbit I wanted to upgrade my Fitbit Flex from. I'm not 'techy' but I love that it's SO easy to set up. It shows the time/texts/calls/steps/battery level/miles/DAY & Date. I DID have the Fitbix Flex set up before, so maybe that's why it's easier. I'm a plus size woman, but I got the Small size, and I have plenty of room to spare.
PROS: (I'll keep it short!) -If you go to the Fitbit Website, you can print out a sizing for your wrist, and play around with it. -Purple! It's a dark purple, but so much better than plain ole black -You can either tap the screen OR just turn your wrist down & then up and it shows the time, distance, steps, etc (you choose the order and what appears first, then you tap the screen to view the other options). -I...

***Original Review*** I am a pretty active person and I love keeping track of my fitness levels so I can gauge how much daily activity I do and what I can do to improve it. Last year for Mother's Day I received a Fitbit Flex and I was so excited! I got it set up and loved seeing how many steps I actually take a day. The only thing is, the Flex doesn't tell you exactly how many steps you take on the device itself so you have to look at the app or on your computer. Personally, my excitement over the Flex slid downwards because I didn't feel motivated enough by it and I had syncing problems with it so I decided recently to look into other options and came upon the brand-new Fitbit Alta! This time I am really, truly excited over it because it has a slim, classy design yet it is more like a smartwatch so it can tell you a lot of information without even looking at an app. I included a picture of the Alta and Flex (my Alta...
I'm writing this review because so many people are whining about the new Fitbit Alta. :) Here is an honest review.
The clasp isn't THAT hard to close. You don't want it falling off your wrist, so yes, you need to use a little pressure to get it on. But everyone is really making a big deal about it. I upgraded from the Charge HR (which has a buckle like watch), so it did take a little getting used to. It's in the technique. Align the holes (don't get the hole and the prong lopsided) and squeeze between your two fingers (rather than pressing on your wrist). I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs and I can close it just fine. It'll also get easier as you practice doing it, but that's with anything. :)
Also, I don't understand the issues others are having with tapping the display. It's easy to figure out the pressure you need to tap with and the rhythm and it works every time. I think people are getting frustrated and tapping REALLY hard, only for it not to work, thus...
