Fitbit is a great service, allowing you to track steps, sleep, food, active periods of time all using a handy little Bluetooth wearable. I’ve been using the Fitbit Flex for a while now and it’s really interesting/motivating to see the latest figures. The Fitbit app has been available on Android and iOS for a while now and finally they have made a Windows Phone app to allow you to sync and track your daily activities. It even allows you to input food and water which previous third party apps couldn’t. So many people will be glad to see an official Fitbit app.
The free Fitbit app for Windows 8.1 includes:
• REAL-TIME STATS: Automatic and wireless syncing for all Fitbit activity and sleep trackers through Bluetooth 4.0
• FITBIT ON YOUR START SCREEN: Pin the Fitbit Live Tile to your Start screen and quickly view your step count
• STAY ON TRACK: Real-time and historical stats in easy-to-understand graphs, to help track progress and set goals
• LOG MORE THAN ACTIVITY: Recently enhanced food database of more than 350,000 foods with accurate nutritional data for faster, better food-logging and calorie coaching
• GET MOTIVATED: Fitbit’s motivational social tools like notifications and badges, to help reach target goals
• STAY SOCIAL: Ability to challenge friends and family with leaderboards, direct messages, cheers and taunts
It’s good to see big name brands like Fitbit releasing apps for Windows Phone, it is really a sign that things are improving slightly on the app front for Windows Phone users. If you want to install it just head over to the store link below and make sure you turn on Bluetooth too.
