Join Us in the Fight Against COVID-19

Dear Fitbit Users,

People across the globe are all working together in the fight against COVID-19. For our part, we have already been working with Scripps Research and Stanford Medicine to see if Fitbit data can help identify infectious diseases. It’s important work and we were inspired to build on it.

Now, we’re announcing the first-ever Fitbit COVID-19 Study, an unprecedented study designed to see if wearing a Fitbit can identify COVID-19 in its earliest stages. It’s a chance to find out if the technology we’ve built to help you get healthy might help prevent you and your family from getting sick.

It’s a big goal. But big goals are in our DNA. Over the past two months, we’ve been preparing the technology, the teams, and the partners to bring this study to life. Now, we need your help  to make a potentially game-changing scientific breakthrough. 

If you are over the age of 21 and living in the United States or Canada—and especially if you have had or currently have COVID-19 or symptoms consistent with the flu—we ask you to join us in this fight.  All you have to do is visit the Fitbit app, sign up, answer a few questions, and continue to wear your Fitbit tracker or smartwatch. Data from your Fitbit can help create an algorithm that could detect COVID-19 before symptoms even start.

Your participation can make an incredible impact. Thank you for your support and for inspiring us to do more.

James Park, CEO & Co-founder
