The offering is a nice addition to Fitbit's overall health tracking, after the company was initially criticized for producing a smartwatch that was too large for many wrists (to the exclusion of a lot of potential female users).
In a blog post over on Fitbit's official website, the company explains that users who have identified themselves as women will soon be able to log their menstrual cycles along with any symptoms that come along with them.
If you've opted in to this service, you will see a new female health tracking box on the dashboard grid in the app. Tap to answer a few questions about the length of your cycle and last period and start logging.
Those with an Android phone will be able to send up to five custom or pre-population replies that are 60 characters or less. Fitbit's proprietary cycle algorithm gets smarter and more accurate as you consistently log your period. Fitbit's new women's health tools, on the other hand, will be launching later this month. Fitbit also upped the customization ante by giving wearers the ability to fully customize the smartwatch, offering a variety of apps like Starbucks, Strava, and Flipboard, as well as a number of custom clock faces - the brand says there's already over 550 apps and clock faces now available. In the future, Fitbit hopes to use all this menstrual data to offer insights about how sleep and exercise impact your period and vice versa.
As for the end user, Fitbit also notes that "having this knowledge helps women have better conversations with their doctor".
On top of this news, Fitbit is also rolling out quick replies on Android, which will be compatible with Android's messaging app as well as other third-party apps like Messenger and WhatsApp.
You will also be able to check out general information about topics such as menstrual cycle and fertility.
Finally, Fitbit has also announced a slew of new apps and clock faces, with many of them centered around managing conditions like diabetes and some forms of cancer. It is also adding text responses for Android users. The list of partners includes excom, Diplomat Pharmacy Inc., Fitabase, Go365, Limeade, One Drop, Sickweather and Walgreens.
