It might take some time earlier than the replace reaches you

There are a ton of health apps on the Play Retailer proper now coming from quite a lot of manufacturers, however the Fitbit app stands out as being a greater one within the bunch — sure, particularly in case you personal a Fitbit smartwatch or tracker band. Apart from the standard stuff like monitoring your actions, the app goes above and past with superior options like day by day reminders, ideas, exercise movies, and coaching plans. Now, with a brand new replace to its charts interface, the app has gotten even higher… or worse — it truly is as much as you to determine with this one.


Now rolling out via the Play Retailer, model 3.64.4 of Fitbit for Android has given many of the in-app charts (that features steps, distance, energy, sleep, coronary heart fee, stress, and so forth.) a contemporary coat of paint — or ought to we are saying a whitewash? — since these colourful gradient backgrounds have all been achieved away with for white backgrounds.

The introductory immediate that can pop up whenever you entry the brand new charts for the primary time claims that the revamp makes the entire thing “simpler to learn.” However contemplating that the earlier background colours helped individuals acknowledge and differentiate between all these well being metrics, we predict it is honest to argue that such a doable benefit could possibly be nullified. The precise knowledge plots that seem on high of the grid are roughly unchanged, although.

However actually, the entire level of this modification seems to be these new tabs on the high of the display that allow you to shortly change between weekly, month-to-month, quarterly, and yearly views, making the full-screen view redundant.

There are additionally new left/proper arrows beneath the tabs that ought to make navigating via historic knowledge simpler.

After all, we now have our personal ideas on the change, however you do as effectively, so we’ll simply wrap issues up by saying that it will take some time earlier than we see the replace transfer out to most customers.
