Fitbit updates its Ionic and Versa watches today with the latest version of Fitbit OS, which adds support for a handful of new third-party applications. Fitbit OS 3.0 will also let users quickly log in the water intake, sleep and weight right from the clock instead of through the mobile app.
Of the new third party apps are some of the most remarkable bags for 5K and Achu Health. Sock to 5K is a popular training program as a coach begins runners to complete a long distance run and the app can show daily training goals on the clock. Achu Health measures your body for unusual temperature rises that are not related to exercise to predict potential illnesses. Other partnerships will be released next year, including TRX, Golds Gym and Mindbody.
The OS update today will specifically translate Charge 3, which means users must continue to wait for additional third party app support from popular brands. Although the company had no news to share that way, it emptied an upcoming update for 2019 that will expand its female health tracking feature to show more data, such as symptom trends. Although these data points may be useful to some users, Fitbits female health tracking is still far behind other dedicated apps, offering comprehensive family planning and transition-time tracking tools.
