Fitbit Gets Fit And Optimized For iOS 7 With New Design And Background Syncing
The official iOS app of Fitbit has just been updated to version 2.0. Released nearly a couple of years ago, Fitbit for iOS automatically syncs your Fitbit Flex, Fitbit Zip, or Fitbit One tracker with your iDevice via Bluetooth 4.0. You can use the app to keep track of your progress with regard to your daily activity and other fitness-related parameters. You can also use it to compete and compare stats with your Fitbit friends. Last July, the app was updated with a number of improvements, which you can read about in a previous post here on AppAdvice. And late last month, it was updated with new social features along with enhancements to stats and graphs. This time, Fitbit's 2.0 update introduces a new iOS 7-inspired interface that offers better navigation. The redesign lets you tap directly on the Dashboard to see the details of your activity, sleep, weight, food, and water consumption. You can customize the Dashboard by tapping the Edit button at the top of the screen. Fitbit 2.0 also offers better syncing on iOS 7, thanks to the operating system's Background App Refresh feature. To change the sync settings, just tap the picture of your tracker on the Dashboard. Fitbit 2.0 is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
