Fitbit's Windows 10 app just became prettier and faster courtesy of a software update
Using Fitbit on your Windows 10 device? If the answer to that question is "yes", then we have some good news for you! A recent update for the universal Windows app, which allows you to access the data from your Fitbit fitness tracker, has just made it better on all the fronts, both visual- and performance-wise. 

For starters, the UI dashboard of the app has been treated to a flurry of cosmetic changes - all of the app's tiles have been revamped with new looks. The update also seems to be flaunting a whole new Device tile. There's a new sync progress bar, too. So far, so good!

In the performance part, we have a wider array of enhancements. The general performance of the app has been improved and it now loads up faster and comes with quicker windows resizing than before. Oh, and it's now easily accessible straight from your device's command bar, allowing you to open it in no time.

As usual with most app updates, this one also polishes the stability of Fitbit and has a number of general bug fixes in store. In particular, it is mentioned that certain syncing issues some users experience have been fixed, which is nothing else but good news.

In related news, Fitbit made its newest device - the $200 Fitbit Blaze smartwatch - official at CES 2016 earlier today. Actually, we are not entirely sure if the Fitbit Blaze is a smartwatch or a fitness tracker - it will show you notifications from your phone, but won't support any third-party apps. Still, it's Fitbit's first foray into the domain of smartwatches, but probably not the last, so we are quite curious what the manufacturer might come up with in the future.

I must say I am enjoying Window's 10 design language. It's concise and pretty.

I like it a lot. It's better than Android app on my LG G4.
