Heads up for everyone: BestBuy will price match Micro Center for Fitbit products that are on sale. Open a chat with Best Buy, give them a link to the Micro Center web site, and give them a ZIP code that is next to the Micro Center store. I purchased the Flex 2 for $39.99 plus tax from Best Buy using this price match feature.

As a side note the Alta HR would be perfect for me, if only it could be taken in the shower. I did not want to take off my fitness band every time I took a shower (which is almost every day) so I went with the Flex 2 instead. In a few years when Fitbit releases a feature-rich tracker that is waterproof I'll get one.

Eyeing on the HR too, but both don't have Fuchsia small... Also did some research on the accuracy of the the heart rate, and I don't know if I would trust it.

This is exactly what I am doing - buy and replace with this $5.99 FitBit Small Classic Band for Alta HR - Fuchsia

The closest store to me is California, it is showing up when I search it. Yours may not show depending on the location.

I tried to price match but even though the unit is the same, if the wristband colors don't match up they won't take it. The coral was available for shipping but it's arrival on Dec 30th and there's no expedited shipping.

Excellent. Was going to get my daughter a Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro but for almost half the cost I got one of these. Not as functional or nice as the Gear but I think it will suffice for her needs. Picked up a blue band too which is her color preference. Overall saved me some dough after I was hypnotized into buying that damn Star Trek bluetooth communicator earlier today.

How do you get a Best Buy to price match something they claim is below their cost?
