Fitbit announced last month that they were working on a Windows Phone app for their popular health and fitness trackers and true to their word, it’s now available.

The app syncs wirelessly with your Fitbit device, although not in the background at the moment – you’ll need to manually open the app for now but that’s expected to change with an upcoming update.

Visually the app looks great and really takes on the Modern-UI Windows Phone look quite well, not to mention it’s fast and hasn’t crashed once so far – not bad for a brand new app.Fitbit Windows Phone App 1
