Fitbit launches Windows Phone companion app
Fitbit today launched its Windows Phone companion app, allowing handset owners to keep track of their fitness activities with Fitbit’s range of wearables and sync their data wirelessly.

The app has real-time and historical data, and users can measure their progress over time. As health, general wellbeing and weight loss is about more than simply exercise, Fitbit also enables users to log their diet.

This is the first time that Microsoft’s mobile operating system is being supported by a fitness band manufacturer. Fitbit may be coming on-board due to the improvements in Bluetooth support brought about by the Windows Phone 8.1 update.

Fitbit’s app is already available on Android and iOS. The launch of a Windows Phone app means that Fitbit supports nearly 100 mobile devices.

You will need Windows Phone 8.1 and the Lumia Cyan update to use the Fitbit app fully, but both are rolling out to Windows Phone devices at the moment.
