Fitbit Introduces Health Management Apps

Fitbit has introduced new apps and clock faces to help users better manage their health directly from the wrist, the company said.

Built using Fitbit’s software development kit, the apps and clock faces will give users new options to improve wellness and help manage health related conditions. In addition to new apps to help users manage diabetes and cancer care, the following apps and clock faces will launch this year:

  • Go365 by Humana: Go365 is a wellness and rewards program that features personalized activities, as well as tracking, support and rewards, to keep users inspired along the way.
  • Limeade: An employee engagement company, Limeade integrates well-being, engagement, inclusion, aggregation and social recognition software into one experience. The Limeade app and a clock face on Fitbit smartwatches will include quick surveys and daily tips to help improve well-being.
  • Sickweather: This clock face will let users know the risk of contagious illness in their current location with alerts on the wrist and a view of top illnesses in the area.
  • Walgreens: Lets users easily locate their closest Walgreens pharmacy, view Balance Rewards points, and save money on purchases.

“Smartwatches provide a powerful platform to deliver important health tools that help our users manage conditions more conveniently than ever before. 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. “With our strong consumer engagement, cross-platform compatibility and intuitive software and services, we have become a wearable partner of choice for leaders across the health care industry. Together, we aim to inspire positive behavior change that can ultimately improve health outcomes and reduce costs.”

All apps and clock faces will be available by summer 2018.
