On their website, Fitbit states that the new band does this using short, positive prompts, that encourage users to meet a mini-step goal of 250 steps each hour (approximately 2-3 minutes of walking).

The prompts can be personalized to a schedule and can easily be put on “Do Not Disturb” during long meetings or appointments.

The Fitbit Alta also comes with SmartTrack automatic exercise recognition, weekly exercise goals in the Fitbit® app and all-day activity and automatic sleep tracking.
