This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Live a healthier, more active life with Fitbit, the world’s leading app for tracking all-day activity, workouts, sleep and more. Use the app on its own to track basic activity and runs on your phone, or connect with one of Fitbit’s many activity trackers and the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale to get a complete picture of your health—including steps, distance, calories burned, sleep, weight, and more.
TRACK ACTIVITY: Accurately record your steps and distance with MobileTrack when you carry your phone. For all-day tracking of stats like calories burned, active minutes, and sleep, pair the app with a Fitbit tracker.
RUN SMARTER: Enhance runs, walks and hikes by using MobileRun to track your pace, time and distance. You can also control your music, get voice cues and use your phone’s GPS to map your routes. (Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)
RECORD WORKOUTS: Use your Fitbit tracker to track your exercise, then check the app to see your stats, their impact on your day, and how your performance is improving.
MONITOR HEART RATE: Use a Fitbit tracker with PurePulse™ to analyze heart rate graphs in the app. Identify trends, manage stress and see the results of your workouts. Review resting heart rate trends to see when your fitness is improving.
LOG FOOD FASTER: Easily log calories with our barcode scanner, calorie estimator, and expanded food database of more than 350,000 foods. See your meal history at a glance, and get nutritional insights.
MEASURE HYDRATION: Quickly log your water intake to make sure you’re properly hydrated during workouts and throughout the day.
SET & MANAGE GOALS: Create weight, nutrition and exercise goals, and start a food plan to stay on track. Then get a visual picture of your progress with colorful, easy-to-read charts and graphs.
SEE HOW YOU SLEEP: Set sleep goals in the app, and use a Fitbit tracker to monitor how much time you spent awake, restless or peacefully sleeping.
SHARE & COMPETE: Connect with friends and family by sharing stats, sending direct-messages, and competing on the leaderboard or in Fitbit Challenges.
STAY MOTIVATED: Get a nudge in the right direction with notifications that pop up when you’re close to reaching a goal or have already met one.
SYNC WIRELESSLY: Fitbit trackers sync your stats to computers and 200+ leading devices so you can continuously track your progress without needing to plug in.
MANAGE WEIGHT: Connect wirelessly to the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale to seamlessly track your weight, BMI, lean mass and body fat percentages, and to see your weight trends over time.

What's New in Version 2.41.1
*Bug fixes and performance improvements
Not bad but could be much better
When I manually enter a treadmill exercise I don’t have the ability to enter mileage, only start and stop times. My Fitbit always assumes less mileage than my treadmill says I did. A simple fix like being able to enter the distance would be greatly appreciated.
GPS does not work unless I first open the app on my phone. If I start running or walking without first opening the app it counts steps but does not track my course even though I have my location settings set to always.
Also, while your at it, could you add a Do Not Disturb setting similar to the one on iPhone. I can’t wear my Fitbit at night because it lights up every time I move my arm. (I’m a light sleeper.). My wife wears hers and every time she moves it lights up the room. The app should offer the ability to identify times when the Fitbit should not light up unless the user pushes the button. Only then would I consider wearing mine to track my sleep.
App gets buggier with every release.
Version 2.41.1 continues Fitbit's trend of making this app worse with every release, and not fixing known bugs. The latest two versions adds the bug of "Looking..." for my Fitbit One but almost never finding it. I have to try to sync several, sometimes 20 or more, time before the app finally syncs. Same tracker, same position, same phone (iPhone 5) as before. The only thing that changed is the Fitbit app version. Furthermore, Fitbit engineering still has not fixed the bug introduced a year ago of not being able to sync if not connected to the Internet (I am often in areas with no wifi and no cell service. I used to be able to still sync and check my stats, but Fitbit broke that a few releases ago, and is apparently incapable of fixing that well-known bug.) Fitbit upper management needs to hire engineering managers who know and care about quality control. Clearly the current app development team does not know how to test software and does not care about quality.
Decent but needs improvements
I like that there are a lot ways to customize the app so that it suits individual goals, but there are also ways that it lacks in that area. For instance, the reminders to move feature lacks the possibility to change the number of steps needed to meet your goal; it’s always 250. It would be nice for the water goal to have a custom quick add so I can add my size of water bottle easily. Those are small things that I’d like to see added but they’re not hurting my rating of the app.
One thing that drives me crazy is that the Fitbit registers steps while I’m driving, so every day I have to log the time I get into and out of my car. There should be a more convenient way to do that (like a “start drive” and “stop drive” button). And worse, is that driving is considered an exercise that counts toward my weekly exercise goal. I could be a lazy bum all week but because I drive to work five days a week I accomplish my goal.
If there was a better way to negate steps this would be less of an issue. I still use my Fitbit but it shouldn’t be this much of a hassle to get an accurate step count.
Another thing sorely lacking is the lack of ability to track nutrition, other than macronutrients. There are no ways to track things like sugar, fiber, sodium, potassium, cholesterol, or vitamins, so I have to use a different app for that and log everything twice.
