Today we’re officially introducing two brand new features to the free Fitbit mobile app: MobileRun and enhanced food logging tools.
MobileRun uses GPS to accurately track, log and compare runs, walks and hikes efficiently and easily.
Through GPS, MobileRun allows you to track and elevate training/workouts with real-time updates and key stats from individual runs, walks and hikes, including exact route, pace per mile (splits), distance and time. Here’s a breakdown of what you can get with MobileRun:
Also new to the app is an enhanced food logging database with thousands of new foods added and a library of more than 350,000 foods in total. A barcode scanner and other improved logging features can really help if you set weight management goals.
The updated database lists only foods with confirmed, credible nutritional data so you can confidently track nutrition with ease. When paired with a Fitbit tracker, the Fitbit app gives you calorie coaching, guiding you with suggested calorie intake based on activity, or recommending number of steps to burn the calories.
Here are all the new features to log food quickly and effortlessly:
The updated version of the Fitbit app with MobileRun and enhanced food logging features can be downloaded now from the iTunes store (Android version coming soon) and works with all Fitbit trackers: Flex, One and Zip – as well as with the MobileTrack function on the iPhone 5s version of the Fitbit app.
