Fitbit Announces New Windows 10 App, Designed to Motivate with Enhanced Features | Business Wire

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fitbit,

Inc., the leader in the connected health and fitness market, today

announced the Fitbit

for Windows 10 app, delivering a more engaging and fluid app design

that lets users personalize the way they interact with key pieces of

their health and fitness journey across all their Windows devices.

Through new Windows 10 app features, people at all fitness levels can

now more easily access and log their most important personalized data in

real-time. Fitbit helps users track their steps, activity, exercise,

food, weight and sleep, providing the information they need to more

successfully reach their goals. Fitbit users can download the Windows 10

app from the Windows Store to their desktop and tablet. Fitbit for

Windows 10 will be able for Windows 10 mobile and Xbox One later this

year.

“For a Fitbit user, health and fitness progress helps them make timely

decisions throughout the day – from what to order for lunch, to take the

stairs instead of the elevator. What time to go to bed,” said James

Park, CEO and Chairman, Fitbit. “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. With the new Windows 10 app, we worked closely with

Microsoft to give Windows users an even easier way to access, utilize

and interact with the information that matters most to them, across all

their Windows devices, to further support them in their fitness journey.”

Key features of the new Fitbit for Windows 10 app:

  • Updated live tiles that have been redesigned with more

    information and new notification types to let users quickly access

    their most critical data to better enable them to reach their

    personalized health and fitness goals.

  • Quick actions to help users log and track their health and

    fitness activities, such as food, water intake and exercise, as well

    as set alarms more efficiently with the simple click of a button,

    encouraging more frequent logging.

  • Cortana® support allows users to speak

    commands on Windows 10 tablets, PCs and mobile phones – such as

    “Fitbit, I ate chicken for dinner” or “Fitbit, I went for a three-mile

    run” – for automatic and easier food and activity logging.

  • Notification center now consolidates all users’ important

    notifications and messages in a dedicated tab making it effortless to

    review progress. Stay motivated with cheers, taunts and

    encouragements from friends and family.

  • Enhanced syncing with Bluetooth on all Windows 10 devices with

    supported hardware provides users with quicker access to their health

    and fitness stats. They can make timely decisions to reach their

    objectives.

  • Universal design and continuum support allows users to

    customize and effortlessly view their most important personalized data

    in real-time with an enhanced visual experience adjusted for whatever

    Windows 10 device they're using.
