Jawbone successor?

Inspired by this question, I'd like recommendations for a replacement for my Jawbone UP wristband. I like its app, the fact that I can track food as well as exercise and sleep, and it's not terrible looking. Heart rate wouldn't be a terrible thing to add to that list, I suppose. What are my options?

I chose the Fitbit Flex 2 as being the closest thing to the Jawbone UP2. Pros: waterproof, replacable band, smartphone message/phonecall notification. Cons: I miss the smart alarm, too! Battery life is a lot shorter than the UP, like 3-4 days max (otoh, that’s partly because I have the smartphone notifications on, and I do love that Fitbit feature). Movement reminder is hourly rather than based on activity. Slightly preferred the Jawbone app, but Fitbit app is fine.

I really love my Fitbit Alta HR. It tracks heart rate and sleep, and you can track food and water intake in the app. It tries to auto-detect exercise, but you can also manually log exercise if the Fitbit doesn't detect it for some reason.
