Fitbit for Windows Phone 8.1 is now available
Activity trackers, fitness bands and other wearables have been ignoring Windows Phone all this while but things have started changing now. Fitbit has arrived on Windows Phone.
The popular activity tracker and fitness band has launched its app for Windows Phone. The Fitbit app for Windows Phone is available only on Windows Phone 8.1. The 8.1 update has started rolling out to existing Windows Phone devices.
As you would expect, the Fitbit app syncs all the Fitbit device data with your Windows Phone smartphone. The app will show you live stats for steps, distance, calories, active minutes, floors climbed and sleep quality from your Fitbit tracker. The app syncs over Bluetooth in real time.
Keeping in tune with the Windows Phone platform, the Fitbit app also has a live tile, which shows you some stats right on your Start Screen. The app lets you set targets, share your stats with your friends, challenge them and more.
Fitbit is one of the first fitness tracking bigwigs to arrive on Microsoft’s mobile platform and we expect more to arrive soon. According to Fitbit, “Windows is projected to be the fastest growing smartphone OS platform, so supporting this platform is important so that all of our users have access to their stats, no matter which phone they choose.”
Fitbit is live on the Windows Phone Store, so go check it out.
