Windows Phone 8.1 app coming for FitBit wristbands

Windows Phone 8.1 app coming for FitBit wristbands
If you're a Windows Phone user jealous at your iOS and Android totin' pals for their ability to sync their devices with a health-oriented fitness band, FitBit is about to come to your emotional rescue.The manufacturers behind the FitBit fitness band are planning on launching an app for Windows Phone 8.1 that will allow users of the platform to sync with the FitBit Force, FitBit Flex and the FitBit One.

The plans were announced by FitBit in the community forums on the company's website. In a thread dedicated to a possible Windows Phone app for the FitBit, the company added a message that read, "Fitbit is developing an application for Windows Phone 8.1. Thank you for all your feedback and support!"

So far, there is no word when the app will be ready, nor is there any indication what features it will have. Nice to see a wearables manufacturer adding support for Microsoft's mobile OS.

Fitbit is Amazing .. They should start producing fitbit force again ... Way better than my FuelBand that works only 2 weeks ...

I wish they would product the fitbit force again. I was actually waiting until they rerelease the force to buy it, but I'd grown impatient so I ended up getting the Flex. So far a great device. My initial response of the Flex was negative, but soon learned that it didn't work properly because it was a defective device so I was issued a new one.

Emotional rescue? Wow Alan you are at the top of your professional carrier with winning lines like that. Now on to the topic, I've never used their products but when I jump to Windows phone I may try this

This is great. I'll be buying it the minute they release the WP app. Btw, any Costa Rican on this site? They sure must be happy tonight. :D

Fitbit is Amazing, no doubt!!! But it has problem of skin and rashes. Hope this will be resolved soon. Being owner of wristbands firm, I think, they should use 100% latex-free, non allergic and child-safe materials. firstclasswristbands.com
