Fitbit female health tracking goes live as healthcare apps start rolling out

Fitbit has announced that two anticipated features will soon arrive for owners of either the Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic.

While Android users may not be getting female health tracking in the Fitbit app until later this month, they are getting their own platform-specific feature. It seems that we have a little longer to wait before these features go live, but Fitbit gave us some in-depth details today. The One Drop app (available now) will allow users to be able to sync Fitbit intraday data to their One Drop accounts to see their glucose data on their smartwatch. Inside of the Fitbit app, you'll find tracking for female health, as well as quick replies for messaging on Versa and Ionic devices. "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.

Quick replies let Android users choose from five pre-populated responses. When they launched, you weren't able to respond to any notifications that came through to your wrist, even though that's something most other smartwatches can do.

And what would a Fitbit wearable be without fitness tracking? Previously, users were unable to respond to text messages, or messages from services such was WhatsApp and Facebook. With smartwatch integration, you can also swipe up on your watch to the Fitbit Today dashboard to check when your period is going to start or end along with your next fertile window.

It should be pointed out that reusing passwords across different services is not recommended for user safety. Uncoded passwords were collected in an internal log, the French press and the Associated Press reported.

All of your data in one place: View holistic data to reveal connections between your cycle and other stats in the Fitbit app, such as activity, sleep, and weight trends. Fitbit says it will push the feature to Android users later this month.

Have at 'em, Fitbit users.

With this program, Fitbit has partnered with health care companies to deliver a variety of new apps to help users manage medical conditions - such as cancer or diabetes - and to improve wellness. The on-device experience can be used to track where users are in their cycle and see when their period is expected. Users will have access to apps like Walgreens which allows you to access the closest Walgreens pharmacy when you need to pick up a prescription, or Sickweather which is an app that scans social networks for illness around your area.
