FITBIT users may notice something different about the app the next time they open it.
The Google-owned device just released an update to get more out of your fitness and health information.
A new “simplified” design has been introduced, divided into three tabs.
These are Today, Coach and You.
But beyond a coat of paint, there are also some background refinements.
These include improved communication with your phone’s sensors and more accurate step counting.
So now you can track a walk, run or hike without wearing your watch.
Instead, you can rely solely on the app on your iPhone or Android phone.
Google has also improved the app’s personalization, allowing you to choose your focus based on personal goals
The Trainer tab contains workouts that you can filter by type, duration, equipment required, and even trainer.
Elsewhere, your progress charts display information about metrics and patterns to help you better understand how you’re progressing.
Additionally, privacy controls have been improved, making it easier for you to review and manage all your data.
“No matter where you are on your health and wellness journey, the new Fitbit app is designed to help you achieve your goals,” said Ajay Surie, Fitbit’s group product manager.
“We are committed to continually improving the Fitbit platform and app to work toward our goal of making the world healthier.”
The update comes as Fitbit is expected to unveil a brand new Charge 6 device next week.
A cryptic promotion simply says “Coming” and gives the date as September 28th.
