Fitbit has confirmed in its community forums that it is developing a Windows Phone 8.1 app for its popular fitness smartbands, but at the moment's that's all that is known, at least officially, on this subject.

Adding an app that supports Microsoft's mobile OS has been one that's been in discussion on Fitbit's community forums for some time. However, earlier today, the company updated that message thread (you have to register for the forums to actually read it) with this statement:

"Fitbit is developing an application for Windows Phone 8.1. Thank you for all your feedback and support!"

That's basically all we know at this point. There's no word on what features it will have nor any indication of a release date. However, we will keep you up to date on Fitbit's progress as soon as they reveal any more information.

This is as good of a time as any to remind you that June is #MobileFit month here at Mobile Nations and, by pure coincidence, we published a new and extensive feature article on Fitbit earlier this morning. Consider this to be a primer for the fitness smartband before the company launches its Windows Phone 8.1 app.

How do you feel about Fitbit planning to join the Windows Phone platform?

Thanks to Tristan R. and Jeff P., who tipped up to this news!
