New Fitbit Versa update could make it the best wearable for women

  • Fitbit's female health tracking is live

It's probably not too late, though, and besides, both female health tracking capabilities and quick replies are coming to the affordable Versa, as well as the costlier Fitbit Ionic smartwatch, available right now at $250 after a nationwide $50 markdown.

Women's health tracking, meanwhile, will eventually be available to all Fitbit app users, though it's first rolling out to iOS and Windows users (it appears as a tile on in the main app dashboard).

Period 101: Learn more about the menstrual cycle, ovulation, fertility, and common misconceptions with educational content through the Fitbit app.

A new text response feature is available immediately to users on the Android app.

Quick Replies are now exclusive to folks using a Versa or Ionic with an Android phone, and just like Fitbit said earlier in the year, this allows you to reply to texts, tweets, WhatsApp, and more using five pre-loaded messages. Fitbit will predict your upcoming cycles using its "proprietary cycle algorithm that gets smarter and more accurate as they log their period".

The result is a thin squad of over-worked players and the strain was evident in, if not the result of the defeat to Chelsea . Or he waited for the contact, I am not sure, so that is not what I want to see, that is not what he wants to do.

These new apps are available on all Fitbit platforms.

Quick replies let Android users choose from five pre-populated responses. Fitbit has explicitly said that it wants to attract more women to wearables. Fitbit's new women's health tools, on the other hand, will be launching later this month. There, you can see where you are in your cycle, when your next period is expected and check your estimated fertile windows. Users with Android apps will get the feature in a few weeks. The Versa even offers fitness guidance via Fitbit Coach and allows for swim tracking, boasting a water-resistance up to 50 meters.

If you have Fitbit's Versa or Ionic smartwatch, you'll now be able to respond to texts from your phone or other messaging services like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

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.

Using the Fitbit app dashboard, users can also create custom replies. The apps and clock faces that have been announced come from Dexcom, Diplomat Pharmacy Inc, Fitabase, Humana, Limeade, One Drop, Sickweather, and Walgreens.
