Get Moving and Stay on the Right Track: Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Giveaway

Believe it or not, it’s already mid-November and we are headed for what I like to call the “Holiday Eating Season.” For me, it’s the time period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, but for many it begins with Halloween. We all get busy and distracted with parties, dinners, shopping, baking, family activities, and end up staying up too late, eating more and exercising less. Sound familiar?

Rather than wait to make a New Year’s health, sleep or weight loss resolution, you can use a fitness tracker to help stay on the right track starting right now. The Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker is a stylish accessory that reminds you to move, tracks your sleep, lets you log your food and more.

Stay motivated by tracking all-day activity like steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes, and get credit for your workouts with Smart Track automatic exercise recognition. At night, track your sleep and set a silent alarm to wake better and get your best rest.

No matter where you’re headed, the easy-to-read OLED screen keeps your goals in focus with stats, time, and call or text notifications on display. It’s sweat, rain, splash proof and you can even wear it in the shower, so it’s always with you. A wide range of accessory wristbands in metal, leather and sport help you find the right style for every occasion.

The Alta also makes a GREAT gift for just about everyone on your holiday gift list. Check out the Fitbit Alta to browse all the band colors, accessories, features and learn more.

Is your dog a fashion hound, or do you know a dog who deserves a special gift? We’re super excited about the newest subscription gift service for dogs: Dog’s Best Trend. It’s a monthly dose of  unique style for your fur kid! Each month your dog will receive a fashion-forward satin scarf with an exclusive design that you can’t buy anywhere else, delivered right to your door.
