| 12 Comments

Multi-Tracker Support is now available on Fitbit

You can now use multiple Fitbit devices with one account!We’re excited to announce that you can now connect multiple Fitbit trackers with the same account! It’s available today with Multi-Tracker Support.

Thanks to Multi-Tracker Support you can now have one tracker for daily wear and another for your workouts. Once multiple trackers are connected to an account, Fitbit does all the hard work for you. The app will automatically detect when you swap from one device to another, with no buttons to push on the tracker or the app. The ability to switch so easily makes it simple to use your favorite Fitbit device for any occasion so you never have to leave your tracker behind.

Accidentally leave your tracker at home but don’t want to lose that step challenge? Set up MobileTrack on your Fitbit app and Multi-Tracker Support will automatically switch over so you never have to miss a step again. Those of you with a compatible mobile device can now use MobileTrack even if you have a tracker paired. MobileTrack allows you to track the basics right through your smartphone, so that anytime you are without a tracker our app will automatically switch over to MobileTrack to keep tracking your steps.

To start using Multi-Tracker Support today, follow these easy steps:

  • Update your Fitbit app (if you haven’t already)
  • ‘Set Up a New Fitbit Device’ from the Account tab in the Fitbit mobile app or Fitbit Connect
  • Finish the setup instructions, and start swapping – we’ll take care of the rest!

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!

The new updated look of the Fitbit.com online dashboard is now live, and we wanted to take this opportunity to show off what’s new.

For starters, everything has been updated with a fresh coat of paint and new colors. Completely new to the dashboard is “This Week’s Activity,” a detailed tile that displays a summary of your week at a glance. Once you manually add the tile to your dashboard, you can switch between steps, floors, and calories on the upper-right corner of the tile, and you’ve got a handy bar that displays your progress toward your weekly goal. You can also hover over a specific day of the week to show your step count (or selected stat) for that day. read more

We’ve got some awesome news to share for Windows phone owners. Today we launched a free, native Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1.

Windows fans, we’ve heard you loud and clear and we’re proud that Fitbit is the first to offer mobile fitness syncing to the Windows Phone platform. If you’re a Windows Phone 8.1 user, you now have instant access to up-to-date stats from any Fitbit tracker. The new Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 also features Live Tiles – Microsoft’s Start screen app experience that provides up-to-date content and notifications at a glance – so you can track your steps and to your daily goals, all without opening the Fitbit app.

In addition to real-time stat syncing, you can also quickly log fitness and nutrition data and set or manage personal goals directly from the app. All the Fitbit app staples are included: notifications, achievement badges and leaderboards, letting you cheer, taunt and direct message friends within the app for a little friendly competition.

Here is the full list of features of the new Windows app:

 

  • Real-time stats: Automatic and wireless syncing for all Fitbit activity and sleep trackers through Bluetooth 4.0
  • Fitbit on your Start screen: Pin the Fitbit Live Tile to your Start screen and quickly view your step count
  • Stay on track: Real-time and historical stats in easy-to-understand graphs, to help track progress and set goals
  • Log more than activity: Recently enhanced food database of more than 350,000 foods with accurate nutritional data for faster, better food-logging and calorie coaching
  • Get motivated: Fitbit’s motivational social tools like notifications and badges, to help reach target goals
  • Stay social: Ability to challenge friends and family with leaderboards, direct messages, cheers and taunts

 

We’re very happy to support the top three leading mobile platforms with direct sync, so now you can choose the device you want to use with your Fitbit product.

Windows Phone 8.1 users can find the free Fitbit app in the Windows Phone Store now.
