Fitbit Expanding Smartwatch Capabilities To Work Better With Healthcare Focused Smart Devices
Fitbit is not doing great at this time and just last week, the company announced that it has faced a loss of $81 million in the last three months. However, with the increase in the smartwatch sector, it is thought that the loss will be a short-lived one.
Quick Replies is soon coming to Android users using an Ionic or Versa. It contains five pre-populated messages that you can use to send off to your messaging apps. The default includes "Yes," "No," and "What's up?". You can also come up with your own messages, as long as they are within 60 characters.

Other brands which are now working with Fitbit include Limeade, OneDrop, Fitabase, Go365, Diplomat Pharmacy (Cancer), and Walgreens.

Not too long ago, Fitbit signed up with Google's Cloud for Healthcare, letting users share their stats with medical professionals.
