Fitbit wants you to sleep better
Fitbit has unveiled the Alta HR, an update to last year’s Alta that adds heart rate sensors to the bracelet-like activity tracker. The new device now includes a ‘Sleep Stages’ feature.

Using the device’s heart reate monitor and accelorometer, the Fitbit Alta HR can analyze all the data to give you sleep insights that can help you sleep better. Like the original Fitbit Alta, the Alta HR has a display that can show off calorie counts, steps walked. You can also get notifications for calls, texts, and calendar events.
The Alta is available for pre-sale today for $149 on Fitbit.com, but won’t make it to consumers’ hands and major retailers until sometime in early April.
