Fitbit now has female health tracking and quick replies
Fitbit has introduced two new features: “female health tracking,” available on the iOS and Windows apps (with Android coming later), and quick replies for Android users with an Ionic or Versa. Additionally, Fitbit has announced it now supports several additional health-related apps.
Fitbit announced that female health tracking was coming a couple months ago when the company unveiled the Versa. It lets you log data about your menstrual cycle and record details about symptoms like cramps or acne. Fitbit will then take this information to make cycle predictions that should get more accurate the longer you use it (and actively log information). You can then see this information along with all your other Fitbit data, like activity, sleep, and weight, in one place within the app. There will also be general information about topics like the menstrual cycle and fertility as well as a community tab where women can connect with others around these topics to get support and talk about things like trying to conceive and menopause.
I'd still like to see Fitbit capitalising on their heart rate data to proactively alert the wearer of heart conditions or be able to warn friends etc lie Apple Watch does. Fitbit sits with all this data but wearers really get no health warning information.... just graphs. If they don't move on this Apple and Garmin are going keep moving ahead (Garmin shows stress levels calculated from fluctuating hear rates).
