Every single time I attempt to sync it, it FAILS. I spent more time trying to get it to sync than actually wearing the wrist tracker. Constantly plugging in and out the Dongle into my computer's USB slot in order to try to get it to sync with the wrist band became a nightmare. It continually gave me “Not working, try again” and/or “An error occurred while syncing, try again” messages. So, I “try again” until I’m blue in the face, and then after 9 attempts, it will work once (but only once, and the dysfunctional cycle starts all over again!). Further, even IF I get it to FINALLY sync, when I try to sync it immediately after (to double check the stats), it fails AGAIN!
The battery indicator when I first used it said it was “full,” but within 30 minutes of usage, the low battery indicator icon turned on. I then charged it for 7 hours, and still couldn’t get a “full” battery indicator icon, even though on my online Fitbit “Dashboard” it says the device is full.
The steps are totally inaccurate. I walked an old dog leisurely for 30 minutes (taking breaks to pick up her business and going at her slow pace), and it said I walked over 3,200 steps (being that I run/walk on the treadmill at steady paces-- I 100% know that number is WRONG).
Now, Customer Service is awesome, that was great, they helped me set it up and omg we had a LOT of issues doing so (it just DIDN'T WANT TO SYNC from the beginning!). Having said that, I do not have (nor desire) 20 to 30 minutes to call them for assistance every single time I want to use my Fitbit throughout the day. This device should be a “plug and play” experience — not a stressful, hair-pulling, time-consuming one.
I am so disappointed, you have no idea, I really wanted it to become my weight loss pilot- tracking my steps and motivating me to move- but this one's a dud, returning it. I'm hoping a different Fitbit product will not give me the same experience.
I'll tell you why:
1. The silent vibration notification that it's time to be active really is more motivating than turning off an alarm on my phone. I don't know the why, I just know the how. Once I've gotten my steps in, the Alta buzzes again to let me know I've reached my goal, and to cheer me on.
2. I love that my phone notifications will go straight to my Alta. It only works within a certain distance - I think 20 feet - but I've found that that's usually plenty. If I put my phone in my purse, coat pocket, or at my desk and then walk away for a moment, not only do I know I'm missing a call or text, but I know who it's from. It's pretty awesome, and it's come in handy.
3. I didn't know how I'd feel about the vibrating alarms, but it's much less jarring to wake up to a vibration on my wrist than the sound of just about any alarm. And I can set the alarm notification to whatever times I want.
4. The app is kind of amazing. I was disappointed that I had to enter food separately (I use My Fitness Pal for that), but the two apps sync well and if I enter food only into My Fitness Pal it automatically enters the calories into my Alta app. Alta also helps track water intake, exercise, sleep patterns, weight, and more. I'm impressed with how much data it has helped to centralize into one app.
5. I've used other apps that encourage you to compete with friends - and hated all of them. But somehow this one is fun and encouraging instead of making you feel like crap about yourself.
6. I can honestly say that in the few weeks I've had my Alta, I've made significant progress toward every one of my health goals - nutrition, water intake, sleep patterns, and weight. And that's the best review I can give for this little gadget.
I've since purchased an inexpensive band replacement so it looks more feminine and dressy, and a screen protector. I recommend both.
I'm a tech user and know how to use google and forums to attempt to fix things. This is not user error. I find it hard to shell out more money on a product that is inferior and becomes obsolete so quickly for the cost.
