You can completely control your tracking device through this app and you can get it on your PC, from the Google Play Store and from the iOS iTunes store.

The Fitbit app helps you attain a healthy and active life by constantly tracking your daily activity given that you have your Fitbit tracker up and running. It’s one of the most modern ways to keep a tight check on your weight, improve your diet and get a better sleep at night. All you need is a tracker that you can purchase from just about any fitness store and this app.
The app is designed in a way that facilitates easy navigation and simple controls to move around and track your progress. It gives you a detailed account of your activity and achievements and even sets new challenges for you to better your heath and meet your health goals more effectively.

And that’s only the beginning of what Fitbit app can do. The app can also make use of your GPS and track your runs, walks and hikes to give you a detailed post-workout account. This report will mention the miles you’ve run, the total time you’ve spent in the activity and of course – the amount of calories that you have burnt.
Apart from the activity tracking abilities of the app, you can also keep a close check on what you eat through the Fitbit app. It’s true when they say your diet is much more important than your exercise and Fitbit makes this known by letting users log in the food they eat and the calories those foods have. This lets you note down how many calories you’re consuming on the daily and how you need to cut back on your diet to reduce weight.
You can also log in your activities in the app such as time spent doing yoga and complex workout routines. Plus, the app lets you share your progress with your friends and gives you several challenges that you can undertake and achieve better fitness levels.
