Fitbit launches the new Alta

New addition offers interchangeable bands

Fitbit has released the latest addition to its family of fitness trackers, the Fitbit Alta.


It has been designed with a satin finish, stainless steel body and features a line of interchangeable bands in various colours and materials so the wearable can be suited to different occasions.

The changeable bands include the classic fitness wristbands in black, blue, teal and plum, new leather bracelet in graphite or ‘blush’ pink, or silver bangle.

High-fashion women’s label, Tory Burch, will introduce new styles specific to Fitbit Alta in the near future.

The Reminder to Move feature is a new addition to the wearable that nudges the wearer to stay active throughout the day and provides visual feedback of progress made on the OLED tap display.

The new feature will encourage you to meet a mini-step goal of 250 steps each hour, approximately 2-3 minutes of walking, and will congratulate the wearer upon achieving the goal.

Starting at $AUD 199.95, the Fitbit Alta is available for presale online and will be available in major Australian retailers including Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks and Rebel Sport from March 2016.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
