Fitbit is going to enter the foray of fashionable wearable techs with Alta, and the smartwatch is already making quite a buzz because of its right combination of fashion and functionality.
With a stainless steel body and satin finish, the Alta is a sight for sore eyes. To top it off, it sports a modular design, allowing owners to personalize it down to the nitty-gritty details.
Of course, this isn't the only stylish fitness tracker out on the market. Here are seven of the other choices out there that'll appeal to both the fashionistas and techies.
Pebble Time Round ($250)
Touted as the world's lightest and thinnest, the Pebble Time Round measures at about 7.5 mm thin. To emphasize just how much slimmer it is, other smartwatches are usually between 10 and 11 mm thick.
It runs on a home-built OS, and that means it doesn't support that many third-party apps. As for longevity, it can last up to two days on a single charge because of the colored e-paper display it's fitted with.
Fossil Q Dreamer ($125)
The watchmaker has been getting things off the ground with the Fossil Q Wearables, but what turns heads out of the bunch is the Q Dreamer.
Focused on style, it comes with a leather strap and sleek form factor. It could pass off as a classy bracelet with an added bonus of fitness functionality underneath. It's not the most tech-forward smartwatch out there, but it does deliver heavily on the fashion side of things.
Moto 360 2 ($300)
Motorola brought quite the contender to the table, as the second generation of the Moto 360 is geared toward personalization while retaining the range of functions that its predecessor came with and more.
It's definitely one of the wearable techs that say chic and affordable, where it almost seems like it was tailored for the ladies.
Samsung Gear S2 ($300)
While Samsung isn't really one for fashion apparel, it surprisingly did great with the Gear S2. It's more casual than classy, but it delivers well on that end.
More to the point, it's the kind of wearable tech that swings both ways in terms of capabilities and style, not to mention that its design is suited to both male and female wearers.
Huawei Watch ($350)
Huawei has been up and about in developing a strong presence on the smart device market, releasing a range of smartphones and tablets. That includes the stunning Huawei Watch.
It's capable of pairing with both iOS and Android devices, and that means it doesn't have any problem with compatibility. Design-wise, it's certainly sleek that gives off a unisex appearance.
Nevo Watch ($350)
If a mix of simplicity and style is more important than functionality, then the Nevo Watch is the smartwatch that can live up to that expectation.
As implied, it doesn't really do much other than track activity, monitor sleep, provide phone notifications and function as an alarm. However, it's all well compensated with the Swiss movement it boasts and easy-on-the-eyes design.
Montblanc e-Strap ($450)
The Montblanc e-Strap offers another option to wearable tech customers, as the technology is placed on the strap instead of the timepiece. In other words, a person who wants to stay traditional but wants to take advantage of smartwatch capabilities, this is the perfect piece to solve their predicament.
