Fitbit is a useful tool to help you monitor your activity and health 24/7. In terms of convenience and functionality, it is one of the best apps among all fitness trackers. You don't need to buy a smart Fitbit device to use it. Just download it to your smartphone and enjoy it.
Fitbit Main Features
Fitbit can do almost everything: from counting steps to monitoring sleep. All collected information is conveniently visualized in the form of tiles and graphs, and the best results are highlighted separately to motivate you to reach new heights. Before starting work, the app asks you to indicate the main goal (for example, improving sleep or losing/gaining weight). To get more accurate numbers, you can fine-tune many parameters. For example, measure and record your stride length.
Now the app can more accurately calculate the number of steps per day, movement speed, time spent, distance, calories burned, and even the number of floors if you climbed stairs. You can walk, run, and just stroll. All of this counts as physical activity that benefits your body. If you are planning a long route, use the built-in map and GPS.
To achieve your goals, keep a training diary, record your meals (there are over 350,000 items in a product catalog), and the amount of water you drink. The app also has free audio and video workouts that you can do even at home. And if you want more exercises, get a premium account with even bigger content.
Also, in the app, you can monitor your heart rate day and night, track sleep quality, control your menstrual cycle, listen to music, and compete with your friends. In the Challenges section, there are exciting missions like "run 15 miles", which you can complete alone, or with your friend. Moreover, Fitbit has a large user community. In a special tab, you can share your progress or encourage other users with your comment.
If you are the owner of Apple devices (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad), they should have an operating system of at least 12.2. Android smartphones and tablets should have OS 7.0 or higher. The app can also be installed on a PC running Windows 10 version 16299.0+ with a Bluetooth connection. And Windows Phone owners should have 8.0.
Fitbit Platform Compatibility
The app is compatible with any Android and iOS devices, Windows Phones, and even Xbox One; it connects to them via Bluetooth. There is no synchronization with Apple Health and Google Fit, but it supports other third-party programs and devices (such as the Wi-Fi Aria smart scale). The app generates statistics based on collected data from all smartphones or fitness bracelets. By the way, if you have several of them, you can add them all to your account. The information will be summarized.
