Fitbit Adds Female Health Tracking And Quick Replies

Fitbit gets quick replies and menstrual cycle tracking

Android phone owners, you'll have to hold on until later in the month before you can get access.

The more you log your cycle, the more Fitbit will be able to determine.

According to the veteran US-based fitness tracker manufacturer, 80 percent of women don't know how many phases are in a menstrual cycle and more than 70 percent are unable to correctly identify the average length of a cycle.

It'll also offer an insight into the fertile window for couples hoping to get pregnant, or avoid doing so. There's also an indicator for the predicted ovulation date.

With the release of the Versa, Fitbit has also rolled out its new OS - Fitbit 2.0 - allowing all Ionic users to update to the new software.

In March, Fitbit officially unveiled the Fitbit Versa - a product it calls a "smartwatch for all". For instance, it could recommend more sleep in the coming week because a bad period is on the way, or suggest easier ways to exercise if you're feeling too exhausted.

Fitbit is currently rolling out its quick replies feature for Versa and Ionic users.Android users now have the ability to respond back to text messages via Fitbit's quick replies feature - Apple's ecosystem doesn't currently allow for similar replies.

The new notification feature should be automatically turned on for any supported apps that send notifications to your watch. You can respond to previously received messages too, by pulling down your notification shade and tapping on a message.

The feature will be available to Android users at some point later this month. "With these apps and clock faces, we continue to deliver on our promise to bring important health information to the wrist", said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.

This information will then show up along with the rest of your Fitbit data, including activity, sleep and weight, all in one place within the Fitbit app. The apps and clock faces that have been announced come from Dexcom, Diplomat Pharmacy Inc, Fitabase, Humana, Limeade, One Drop, Sickweather, and Walgreens. Fitbit says that all of the apps will be live and available to download for Ionic and Versa user by summer 2018.
