  • Fitbit gets quick replies and menstrual cycle tracking

Fitbit is making a bunch of features it promised when it announced its Versa smartwatch a couple of months back and that includes new female health tracking features.

The period-tracking data will sit in the Fitbit app alongside all your other data-like activity, sleep, and weight-so you can figure out the likely cause for your burning desire to punch loud eaters and/or eat an entire bag of potato chips.

Female health tracking is launching today for all users in the Fitbit app on iOS and Windows - Android users will get it later this month.

The five default quick replies are fairly basic responses like "yes", "no", and "sounds good", though Fitbit users will be able to customize those once the feature launches. Custom replies can include a combination of 60 characters, and can include both text and emoji.

Fitbit then allows you to take this data and make cycle predictions that get more accurate the more you use it, allowing you to log additional information as you go along.

During Fitbit's recent press event in New York City, the company talked extensively about the new products that it'll be highlighting this coming spring.

On the Ionic and Versa meanwhile, you can now track where you are in your cycle, view when your period is expected, and predict your upcoming fertile window in the on-device dashboard (by swiping up from the clock face).

These new apps are available on all Fitbit platforms. There will also be groups in Fitbit's Community service for women to connect over.

You will also be able to check out general information about topics such as menstrual cycle and fertility.

Quick replies allow Versa and Ionic users with Android smartphones to send pre-populated responses to SMS and chat app messages they receive while their smartwatch is paired to their smartphone. The latest addition to Fitbit OS is support for health partner apps and clock faces, which have been built using the proprietary software development kit (SDK). The apps and clock faces that have been announced come from Dexcom, Diplomat Pharmacy Inc, Fitabase, Humana, Limeade, One Drop, Sickweather, and Walgreens.
