Fitbit has announced the next wearable fitness device in their lineup of trackers. It’s called the Fitbit Alta, and it’s being touted as “a slim, sleek fitness wristband that can be personalized to fit your style.” You can see it in all of its forms and in daily use in the gallery at the head of this post.

The Alta will sell for $129.95, and you can pre-order it today. It will be available at retail in March. As for what special features it offers, here’s what they shared in their email to us.

  • Reminders to Move to help you stay active and reduce stationary time,  SmartTrack automatic exercise recognition, weekly exercise goals and all-day activity and automatic sleep tracking
  • Smart notifications such as call, text and calend ar notifications right on your wrist when your phone is nearby through on-screen messages and a gentle vibrating alert
  • An easy-to-read, vibrant OLED tap display shows your activity stats and the time
  • Compatibility with more than 200 Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices and computers

You’ll be able to swap out accessory bands that run the gamut of classic looks, more fancy luxe leather bracelets and a silver bangle, if that’s your jam.
