Published by at

Last reported on here, back in December 2014, the Fitbit client for Windows Phone has now received yet another update, this one adding maps support for Surge Run, plus a Friend Finder compatibile with Facebook. Plus quite a bit more, see the changelog below.

Here's the quoted changelog for v1.6 (over and above 1.5 in our previous story):

  • Surge Run – View maps of your GPS tracked activities.
  • Friend Finder Improvements – Add friends from Facebook, email
  • Reduce App Install Size – We’ve cut the size of our app almost in half!
  • Custom Heart Rate Zones – You can now create custom Heart Rate zones for Charge HR and Surge.
  • Exercise Heart Rate – Heart Rate will now appear for your tracked exercises.
  • Tooltips – New tooltips to help get you familiar with the app.
  • Improved Setup Flows
  • Miscellaneous Bug Fixes and Improvement

Great to see this getting continued investment from the Fitbit team. I don't use Fitbits myself, tending to use the phone itself to track any walks or hikes, but the accessory is both relatively cheap and popular, see here for full information.

You can download the Fitbit app for free from the Windows Phone Store and start syncing your Fitbit wireless activity trackers.
