Fitbit activates female health tracking on the Versa and Ionic
There are plenty of great smartwatches and fitness trackers out there, and the two newest offerings from Fitbit may have recently caught your attention.
When you receive a message through WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Slack, or any other messaging app on your watch, just click on the notification to expand it. Scroll down to the bottom, tap Reply, and you can choose from five different pre-set messages or scroll over to the emoji tab, as pictured above. The latest addition to Fitbit OS is support for health partner apps and clock faces, which have been built using the proprietary software development kit (SDK).
Quick Replies are now exclusive to folks using a Versa or Ionic with an Android phone, and just like Fitbit said earlier in the year, this allows you to reply to texts, tweets, WhatsApp, and more using five pre-loaded messages.
Last and by no means least, Fitbit is introducing a host of new apps and watch faces for its two smartwatches that are aimed at helping users manage conditions such as diabetes and cancer.
Fitbit Versa vs Ionic: Which is the best Fitbitsmartwatch? The new feature is only available on the Fitbit Ionic and the Versa. Or program your own responses from the app. But if you already use the app, it lets you view all your health data in one spot.
In a nutshell, Fitbit is trying to offer a universal female health monitoring platform, correlating all the information the Versa and Ionic are capable of collecting rather than simply logging your menstrual cycle dates and predicting when "that time of the month" will start next.
With female health tracking, users can log information about their periods to get estimations on when their next period will begin, when they'll be fertile, etc.
You can register the intensity of your period, discharge consistency and other premenstrual symptoms like cramps, acne and breast tenderness.
