We’re thrilled to announce that Fitbit has acquired FitStar, one of the largest platforms for delivering personalized video-based exercise experiences on mobile devices! You may know of FitStar from their top-rated personal trainer and yoga apps, which offer tailored exercise program designed specifically for you. FitStar has also partnered with some spectacular fitness experts, such as football legend Tony Gonzalez and yoga expert Tara Stiles.
With this acquisition, FitStar members will be able to seamlessly publish their FitStar workouts into Fitbit to see how their personal training or yoga practice impacts their overall health. We’ll also soon be rolling out the ability for Fitbit users to set up a FitStar account using their Fitbit account login. Also coming soon, FitStar users who also use a Fitbit tracker equipped with PurePulse (such as the Charge HR or Surge) will be able to see their heart rate trends during FitStar logged workouts.
We’re excited to broaden our platform by adding new services that will provide even more motivation and encouragement. We hope you’ll check out FitStar‘s app if you’re looking for new workouts to try at home.
