New Fitbit Windows 10 App Delivers Personalised Features
Initially available for desktop and tablet devices, Fitbit states the new app will be coming to Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One later in the year.
Sporting “a more engaging and fluid app design”, the new app is designed to let users personalise the way they interact with their fitness data, with Fitbit stating new features allow users to more easily access and log their personalised data in real-time.
Among the features of the new app are updated live tiles, redesigned with more information and new notification types, quick actions to help users log and track their health and fitness activities, Cortana support, allowing users to speak their actions, and a notification centre, consolidating the user’s notifications and messages in a dedicated tab.
Enhanced syncing with Bluetooth is designed to provide quicker access to data, and universal design and continuum support allows users to customise and view data in real-time “with an enhanced visual experience adjusted for whatever Windows 10 device they are using”.
“As we do across all platforms, we continue to design features that empower people with information and motivation to set and reach goals with engaging experiences through our mobile apps,” James Park, Fitbit CEO and chairman, commented.
“With the new Windows 10 app, we worked closely with Microsoft to give Windows users an even easier way to access, utilise and interact with the information that matters most to them, across all their Windows devices, to further support them in their fitness journey.”
