Fitbit has also announced an expansion to their app catalogue, fleshing out the existing apps with new options including TRX with guided workouts, FitBark which lets you see your pets daily stats side-by-side with your own, GOLD’S AMP for Fitbit giving you training tips from GOLD’S Gym and more including achu health, Couch to 5K, Genius Wrist and MySwimPro.

Fitbit’s focus on female health tracking will improve next year with tracking trends due to arrive in the Fitbit app in early 2019. Fitbit says that the trends will offer ‘a comprehensive view of menstrual cycle data including symptom trends, over time’.

Finally Fitbit has added a new Exercise API and open source tools for developers giving them faster and more efficient ways to build apps and watch faces for Fitbit Smartwatches.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
