Fitbit enables you to log your food and track your physical activities and sleep patterns to lose or gain weight and live healthily. However, if you don't own a Fitbit activity tracker or smart scales for syncing, you'll find the app's core functionality less advanced than other similar apps.
Can improve your lifestyle: With its personalized recommendations based on age, height, and weight, accessible charts, and quick food logging, Fitbit acts as a true fitness assistant. It works as advertised and feels accessible even if you've not used a similar app before.
Appealing user interface: One of the best-looking fitness apps around, it features a streamlined interface that uses colorful progress bars, charts, and buttons to make the user experience intuitive and enjoyable. We especially like the water intake representation of the human figure slowly filling up.
Integrates with activity trackers and smart scales: By syncing with Fitbit fitness devices, this app makes it easier for you to track your sleep patterns, calories burned, and weight, which provides highly accurate figures and savies you the trouble of having to log all activities, manually.
Feels basic when used without Fitbit devices: While even without trackers or smart scales this app can help you lose or gain weight and eat better, without them you can't track your sleep patterns, nor can you track your weight as easily; you have to do more tapping and typing.
Limited food database: All the essential foods are in there, but the app's food database doesn't hold a candle to that of MyFitnessPal. The good news is that this app can integrate with the MyFitnessPal database.
Fitbit proves to be an apt fitness assistant that can help you live a healthier life. Whether or not you own Fitbit devices, you should still give this app a go -- its polished interface, good functionality, and overall accessibility make it worthwhile. Keep in mind, though, that because of the nature of this app, you should install it on your smartphone rather than tablet.
