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 2.28
*Bug fixes and performance improvements
I haven't been using Fitbit for long but the previous version of the app seemed pretty adequate and stable. The newest update is a frustration. It takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r for my Charge HR to sync and even when it does there are problems. I'm having a very difficult time both starting and stopping the Heart Rate function on my band (I have to turn it off because the battery life on the Charge HR is not even half of what's advertised).
I decided to write this review after attempting, yet again, to turn off the HR function and can't. But the tipping point was that I went for a long bike ride this morning that Fitbit interpreted as "working out". I went to change it to "bike ride" and then went back to the exercise feed and now it's saying I went for a "walk". But after the initial option to change the type of exercise, now I can't. So I'm stuck with a 2.5 hour walk for 3.5 miles instead of the 36km ride I actually went on.
Like I said, super buggy and incredibly frustrating.
Much better than Garmin Connect, but still no HealthKit
While there does seem to be some "phone integration", it won't pull data directly from HealthKit like my weight which was added automatically by my scale. However, many other apps do directly connect to it through an API, so I can still get the data there.
But that's the ONLY negative. I came from Garmin and I'm very impressed so far with the user experience. Much simpler setup, automatically syncs throughout the day, and lets me configure everything from the app that my FitBit can do. I picked the Flex 2, my wife has the Charge 2. We are both much happier then we were with our Garmin devices.
So far only about a day in but the devices have stayed connected, unlike our Garmins.
Best app. Worst product.
The app and the website are second to none in the fitness tracking industry. So five stars. However, the quality of their watches is among the worst in the industry. I have gone through five watches in one year all replaced under the original warranty. Once warranty expires on original purchase, they don't replace them anymore. Of the five I had, no two had same problem. Ask anyone who has one, and they will tell you what number watch they are on since the original purchase. Kind of a badge of honor. Dishonor more appropriately. Not going to downgrade the work of the developers for the crap quality they have to work with.
