Fitbit updates iOS app for iPhone 5s to track steps, distance, and calories

Posted Dec 30, 2013

Fitbit has updated their iOS app to support the ability to track steps, distance, and burned calories. The new Fitbit app features MobileTrack, which offers basic Fitbit activity tracking directly using your iPhone 5s. This app connects with Fitbit’s line of activity trackers and Aria Smart Scale to get access to all of your stats on the go.

As part of the update, Fitbit also redesigned silent alarm settings. Now you can set, switch, and remove alarms fast. You can also set custom water goals and tap on people in Friend Finder to see their profile. When swiping on friends on your leaderboard, you can cheer, taunt, and message people. Tapping on tabs auto-scrolls to the top.

The iPhone 5s supports the new Fitbit features through its M7 motion coprocessor.
