fitbit have relatively basic but generally well-working products. Their online ecosystem is good.

In the light of new competitor products, FITBIT have announced further additions to their online offering – press release below

In my opinion some of these online platforms and apps (eg Under Armour) are getting WAY too complicated. I do complex stuff with my training stats and planning but I STRONGLY suspect that Jo Average simply hasn’t got the time. I consider myself tech-savvy yet I sometimes find it VERY time consuming to comprehend some of the offerings.

Just a thought.

FITBITthe leader in the connected health and fitness market, is enhancing its health and fitness platform to deliver more personalized insights, smarter guidance and more motivation with new interactive features in the Fitbit® app and Fitstar Personal Trainer app, and updates to Fitbit Blaze. These features include a more engaging social experience through a new Community section and tailored insights with Personal Goal Setting in the Fitbit app; more personalized guidance with a new Fitstar Personal Trainer app; and advanced health and fitness features coming to Fitbit Blaze.

“In order to help drive true behavior change, you have to make health fun, engaging and meaningful. For nearly 10 years, we have been the leader in the connected health and fitness category because we have consistently delivered innovative products, software and services that work together to create an engaging experience our users love and can’t live without,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit. “With these latest advancements, we’re delivering even more ways to interact with your social network and provide a smarter, more tailored experience, transforming the personal value of Fitbit devices from beloved fitness trackers to an integral part of your life.”

New Social Experience That Inspires and Motivates You to Move More
With more than 54 million devices sold and as the number one health and fitness app1, Fitbit has created one of the largest fitness social networks in the world.

Fitbit has always recognized the motivational power of a strong support network. As a result, Fitbit has designed a more engaging social experience with a new Community section in the Fitbit app that offers more ways to connect with others for support and inspiration as you progress along your path to better health. Fitbit Community consists of:

Personalized Guidance to Help You Work Out Smarter and Reach Your Goals Faster
In addition to social support, Fitbit has always understood there is no one size fits all approach to health and fitness. Everyone is unique with individual interests, needs and fitness abilities that require tailored advice and information.

With this in mind, Fitbit is introducing an updated Fitstar Personal Trainer app experience that delivers personalized, adaptive video-based exercise routines that can be done by anyone, whether at home or on the go, and are customized to your fitness level and evolve as you progress. The Fitbit app is also becoming more intelligent with a new Personal Goal Setting feature that uses insights from your own activity to help you set reachable goals.

New Tools Enhance the Health and Fitness Power of Fitbit Blaze
Fitbit is extending two powerful health and fitness features to Fitbit Blaze that are powered by PurePulse® continuous wrist-based heart rate tracking. Cardio Fitness Level and Relax guided breathing sessions first appeared on Fitbit Charge 2, the #1 fitness tracker in the U.S.,3 and allow users to take an even more active role in their health and wellness. With this software update, Blaze is also receiving three new clock faces to give you more ways to personalize your tracker.
