Fitbit Alta HR Successor Maybe On Its Way, Gets Certified By FCC, NCC, and MIIT


Update: Another upcoming Fitbit fitness tracker has now made an appearance online. South Korean certification agency NRRA has certified an upcoming Fitbit wearable bearing the model number FB415. Apart from the model number, no other details have been revealed by the South Korean agency.


Fitbit seems to be prepping up for the successor to the Fitbit Alta HR. The Alta HR had marked its debut back in 2017, and since then, Fitbit did not add any new device to the lineup. Now, in our latest find, we have spotted an upcoming Fitbit device with two models. The device has already gained FCC, NCC and MIIT certifications. There are two models currently in the line named Fitbit FB412 and FB413.

According to the information available on the certificates, FCC had given green signal to these new fitness trackers back in November. Both the certified models will be integrated with heart rate sensor, similar to the Alta HR. NCC and MIIT have also certified the both the FB412 and FB413 models. As of now, the NCC, MIIT, and FCC certifications have not revealed any information other than heart rate sensor on the upcoming Fitbit trackers.

The Fitbit Alta HR was the world’s slimmest wrist-based continuous heart rate tracking device. It also boasted PurePulse heart rate technology, SmartTrack automatic exercise recognition, sleep tracking, reminders to move, Cardio Fitness levels and more features. Similar to other fitness trackers in the market, the Alta HR was also capable of measuring steps count, calories, distance. It supported call, text and calendar alerts as well. Fitbit had claimed about 7 days of battery life for the Alta HR when it was released.

Considering the recently gained certifications, Fitbit is now gearing up to launch a new device soon. We can expect it to offer beefier specs than the Alta HR. We do not know how Fitbit plans to name the upcoming device, but if we can guess, the company may name it Alta HR 2. Fitbit is yet to make any noise regarding the upcoming launch of the device, it may start sending invites in the coming few weeks. With these certifications, we do know that Fitbit has a new device up its sleeves that we may see at its next event.
