Fitbit's female health tracking goes live as its wearables get smarter

Fitbit gets quick replies and menstrual cycle tracking

Fitbit OS comes pre-installed on the Ionic and Versa, the company's latest smartwatches, but since its a newly launched platform, it needs a lot of work.

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).

Women's health tracking allows female Fitbit users to log their menstrual cycles, record symptoms and compare between different cycles.

Next up are quick replies, a feature that's exclusive to Android. On May 7, Fitbit announced that it is adding female health tracking, text responses, and other new health apps.

"According to a recent Fitbit survey, 80 percent of you don't know how many phases are in menstrual cycle and more than 70 percent of you are unable to correctly identify the average length of a cycle", the company wrote on its blog in March.

These new apps are available on all Fitbit platforms.
