Review from Kenny Moore
Working on Galaxy SIII Was already getting a little tired of syncing via the dongle and heard this was around the corner. Downloaded it last night and have had no issues so far. The only major feature that was missing is now there. Like others have stated...the fitbit food portion is a bit limited, but if you use myfitnesspal as your hub, everything will sync together (currently using food at myfitnesspal, steps at fitbit, and cardio activities through runtastic).
Great app! 3 stars to get attention to a few suggestions I'd like to make. First I'd like to see a way to manually track floors (stairs) climbed. This would make it convenient for people who use stair machines during workouts. For all tracking catagories I'd like to see a different bar appear when you change your goal, for instance if I increase my water intake to 130oz per day from 100oz, I'd still like to see the old bar for when my goal was 100oz. This way it still appears as though I had met my goal which I did. Thanks again and keep up the good work! :)
I am coming from a Android Wearable. The Moto 360 1st Jen to be exact. While this doesn't have as many features I actually like it a LOT MORE. That being the charge 2 and Fitbit app. I don't see as much useless stuff on my wrist that I really can't do anything with anyway, and the health tracking is way better and tons more accurate! The app goes way more in depth and covers/combines multiple old apps that I was using. I also really love two other features. The battery life, and the fact that the battery life allows me to wear the Fitbit at night to track my sleep. If you are looking for a new or different fitness tracker and companion app you won't be disappointed with the Fitbit app and the Charge 2.
I just installed it and use it much like my computer. This means I log in once a night into the dashboard to sync, no need to have bluetooth & location on all the time and do not use for sleep. This tile was removed no prob. Thus far the app works fine. Also was able to perform recent firmware update no glitches.
This is about the coolest app I've ever seen! It work great with the monitor, and was easy to set up and learn. It is great for tracking progress toward my goals. I especially love the food tracker with calories burned vs. calories in, showing your progress toward your calorie deficit and weight loss goal. It has everything I need for a comprehensive diet and fitness plan.
I really love this app. It's helping me to identify the things I need to work on. Recently I was forced to start using the new dashboard. It doesn't display the correct information for each of the dashboard subgroups for previous days after I sync. The information for yesterday is the same as todays unless you select the subgroup. Then the correct information is displayed while you are in that subgroup. When you return to the dashboard for that day, the data is gone. Is there any way this can be fixed?
I'm getting the "tracker not found" error message when i try to sync (Bluetooth is on). While i love the fitbit device, the app is seriously lacking. I previously owned a Jawbone tracker and while the device was no frills the jawbone app was everything you could want in a fitness app. I wish fitbit would take a page from their book. Please fix your issues...UPDATE 2/6: I restarted the band and is now synching again. (Plug in and hold button 10s while it's plugged to power)
