Fitbit Surge now with Multi-Tracker support, bicycling monitoring

As more people get into the fitness lifestyle, OEMs have had to adjust to the newest "trends" and make sure that their fitness wearables and apps will appeal to not just one kind of workout or sport, but to as many people as possible (well at least those who are getting off their butts to workout or exercise). Fitbit Surge is one of the most popular in the market, and now they will be getting even more of an audience as they add more features to the device and the app.

Fitbit intros three new models, now with GPS and heart-rate sensor

It seems the smartwatch-wearable era is booming. A lot of wearables from different manufacturers are being introduced left and right. The Pebble may be one of those who started in this business but it’s gaining a lot of rivals.

It’s still thriving but Pebble developers must think of new ways to market and sell the smartwatch.

Leaks show pictures and specs of new Fitbit models

It's still a few months away, but already leaks and rumors abound regarding the new Fitbit models that will be launched in 2015. A tech website got its hands on the marketing materials for the Fitbit Charge and Charge HR and it looks like both are a somehow refurbished version of the Fitbit Force. The company was forced to recall the Force last year after the nickel in the band caused some to break out in rashes and burns. Is this the second (and better) coming of the fitness band?

Fitbit app update brings new dashboard design

The latest update for the Fitbit app has landed in the Play Store. There isn't a huge list of new features (or new device support) this time around, however this is an update that current users will notice immediately. Simply put -- Fitbit has rolled out a new design for the dashboard.

Fitbit update details HTC One (M8) integration, widget and more

As we recently learned, the Fitbit app would be pre-installed on the recently announced HTC One (M8). This is potential good news for Fitbit, as the app, and the hardware will now be fresh in the minds of those who purchase a One (M8).
