Fitbit improves sync on Android smartphones
Posts documenting Fitbit’s problems (original post / update / further update) in enabling Bluetooth sync with Android smartphones for its smart wristbands have been among the most popular on WearableTechWatch – and now Fitbit has announced support for a wider set of Android devices.
In addition to existing support for Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and Note phones, Fitbit now claims that it can support a wider range of handsets which have low-power Bluetooth, including the HTC One, the Google Nexus 4, 5 and 7, and a range of Motorola Droid handsets. An updated list on Fitbit’s website also includes an LG device.
It looks as if these devices have been in unofficial beta since the Fitbit app for Android was updated on December 19.
