IFTTT or If This Then That has today announced that a new update has now made it possible for owners of the Fitbit activity tracker to be able to let IFTTT create new automated tasks depending on the activity data that your fitness Tracker creates.
The Fitbit Channel connects your goals, activity, sleep, weight, and more to over 100 unique Channels on IFTTT. Enabling you to automatically get notifications if you haven’t met your daily goals.
If you are new to IFTTT, it is a service that enables users to connect different web applications such as Evernote, Dropbox and Facebook to name a few through simple conditional statements known as Recipes.
“IFTTT enables users to create and share “Recipes” that fit the statement: “if this then that”. The “this” part of a Recipe is called a Trigger. Some example Triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare”. The “that” part of a Recipe is called an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook”.”
