Fitbit continues its efforts to modernize its mobile app with a new Material You design for the settings page on Android devices. This update, spotted in version 4.19 of the app, brings a cleaner look and feel, incorporating icons for each setting and using Material 3 toggles for a more consistent user experience.

Navigating the app has become a bit easier, thanks to the introduction of a shortcut to the Fitbit Premium subscription status right at the top. The "App settings" section now neatly groups together Date, time & units, Push notifications, and Email notifications, simplifying the process of managing these preferences. The "Social & sharing" section, however, remains unchanged from previous versions.

In the "Preferences" section, users will find the usual settings for Activity, Exercise, Sleep, Stress management, Nutrition & weight, and Heart rate. Notably, a new Mindfulness setting has been added, providing a quick way to set a goal for the amount of days a week that you want to participate in sessions to improve your mental well-being.

However, some parts of the app remain unchanged, and thus the redesign appears incomplete. Subsections of the settings page, such as Daily Activity, Exercise, and Sleep Goals, haven't received the Material You treatment just yet and hold on to the old design.

This redesign is part of Fitbit's ongoing efforts to enhance the mobile app experience since last September. While the company hasn't announced a specific timeline for updating the remaining sections, it's clear that Fitbit is committed to bringing a fresh, modern look to the entire app. It's worth noting that this Material You update is currently exclusive to Android devices, so iOS users will have to wait a bit longer to see these changes.
