  • Wow, they really deserve our attention + money
  • They sure do. So many companies snub us but clearly there is a market. For those that support us, I support them. Wife and mother-in-law have Fitbits :)
  • Does the update add push notifications with WM10 devices?
  • Push notifications to the phone have always been there. What isn't there is call/text notifications to your Fitbit, and that is because Microsoft doesn't have a GATT server in Windows yet.
  • Really awesome :)
  • Glad they're working hard on it! Wish all developers would do the same for WM.
  • Does it work with the Microsoft band 2? #Sarcasm #kindof ...
  • all joking aside that would be a good idea for them to add. think if they can sell band users the scale the next step would be to get a fitbet.
  • Microsoft and Fitbit should work together with Band/Fitbit/Health
  • This is indicative of what the future of W10\W10M will bring. It's in its infancy. I'm sure the naysayers will pounce though. :)
  • Anyone able to get the fitbit app to track motion data on a Lumia 640? The app doesn't seem to support it.
  • The app used to not support my Lumia 1520. Then I reinstalled it and it could track motion data! If you didn't tried it...
  • Same here. Is this app supposed to support Motion Data?
  • Works on my 1520 but background task sometimes stops working and have to open app.
  • Works fine on my 640
  • I can't find how to pin the Challenges in this version, has anyone figured out where you do that from?  Edit: I found it buried in settings, unlock the others that are in the navigation bar.
  • In fact I can't find how to pin any tiles on my phone, only on my PC.
  • I've enjoyed my Microsoft Band for the past year but I'm thinking I may go with a Fitbit in 2016 rather than get Band 2.
  • ​What means mobile track support, tried to google it but found no good explanation?
  • Mobile track is the ability for the app to use the device's built in motion data (steps, altitude, gps, accelerometer, etc.) as opposed to relying on a separate, dedicated device such as a fitbit.
  • Really wish more apps would allow multiple tiles! It would be great for calendars!
  • Good to see Fitbit believing in the Universal app system. We need more companies like them.
  • People are apparently struggling a little to get their Fitbit syncing to the new app.
  • I can't sync my Charge HR since the update.
  • They're making it more challenging for people to choose a band over a fitbit. Both have their strengths, but as far as social fitness features and cost goes fitbit have a good position. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I don't think Microsoft really cares. In fact, I'm pretty sure Microsoft has stated as such. The Microsoft band isn't intended to compete with Fitbit. Like all of it's other hardware products, it's intended to be a reference design.
  • I never really thought Microsoft did. Any support for their platform, even if it has some moderate competition in terms of features is always a positive as far as theyre concerned. My view was that it's great for Windows Phone users to have a good level of choice, even if it does make the choice difficult.
