FitBit now supports 17 popular Android devices

13_328_Fitbit_1555As you may well be aware, a few of us at Ausdroid (and indeed, many of you, too) are users of FitBit devices, and until fairly recently, you’d have noticed what we have: support for the fitness tracker is kind of limited in Android (at least, officially). Initially compatible with a very limited range, primarily of Samsung devices, the fitness tracker is now compatible with many more.

Back in December, FitBit added compatibility for a range of semi-common devices, including some Motorola handsets at most of the Nexus range. However, there were some notable exceptions, which FitBit has now addressed.

To the existing list, FitBit have added support for the LG G2, HTC One, Moto X. The FitBit app has also received a bit of spit and polish, introducing new features like NFC pairing (for supported FitBit devices) as well. If you’ve got a FitBit, and one of the newly supported devices, it’s time to get syncing and master those steps!

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
