The currently range of devices supported includes the Fitbit One, Fitbit Zip, and Fitbit Flex wireless activity trackers, that will now sync directly with select Samsung devices via the latest Fitbit Android app.

“People are realizing that they are more active and can get more fit when they are more connected and aware of their fitness activities,” said James Park, CEO. “An activity tracker transforms into a meaningful product when it makes a difference in your life, gets you to move more. We believe that is achieved through creating a great activity tracker that syncs with the devices you are currently using. Our goal is to provide the best customer experience on the devices people want to use, whether you have an Android or iPhone smartphone, a computer or a tablet, or all of the above.”
