Fitbit, the leader in the connected health and fitness market, Thursday launched the new Universal app, Fitbit for Windows 10, offering a new design that lets users personalize the way they interact with their health and fitness analytics. It is available for free and is compatible with Fitbit's family of products, including the Fitbit Surge, Fitbit Charge HR, Fitbit Charge, Fitbit Flex, Fitbit One and Fitbit Zip activity trackers, as well as the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale.

Through the app features, users can easily log, track, and analyze their fitness data in real-time across all their Windows devices. The Fitbit for Windows 10 app also comes with Cortana support, letting Windows PC, tablet and mobile phone users speak to the digital assistant as a way to facilitate the logging of activities related to fitness, from exercise to food consumption. 

The  app is available in the Windows Store now for desktops and tablets, and will arrive later this year on Windows 10 mobile and Xbox One. The new Windows 10 application's modern web dashboard includes: 

Updated live tiles that have been redesigned with more information and new notification types to let users quickly access their most critical data to better enable them to reach their personalized health and fitness goals.

Quick actions to help users log and track their health and fitness activities, such as food, water intake and exercise, as well as set alarms more efficiently with the simple click of a button, encouraging more frequent logging.

Cortana support allows users to speak commands on Windows 10 tablets, PCs and mobile phones - such as "Fitbit, I ate chicken for dinner" or "Fitbit, I went for a three-mile run" - for automatic and easier food and activity logging.

Notification center now consolidates all users' important notifications and messages in a dedicated tab making it effortless to review progress,or stay motivated with cheers, taunts and encouragements from friends and family.

Enhanced syncing with Bluetooth on all Windows 10 devices with supported hardware provides users with quicker access to their health and fitness stats, so they can make timely decisions to reach their objectives.

Universal design and continuum support allows users to customize and effortlessly view their most important personalized data in real-time with an enhanced visual experience adjusted for whatever Windows 10 device they are using.

James Park, CEO and Chairman, Fitbit
For a Fitbit user, health and fitness progress helps them make timely decisions throughout the day - from what to order for lunch, to take the stairs instead of the elevator, or what time to go to bed. As we do across all platforms, we continue to design features that empower people with information and motivation to set and reach goals with engaging experiences through our mobile apps. With the new Windows 10 app, we worked closely with Microsoft to give Windows users an even easier way to access, utilize and interact with the information that matters most to them, across all their Windows devices, to further support them in their fitness journey.
