Fitbit Flex

18 new devices added in latest update

Fitbit has expanded the sync capabilities of their wearable fitness trackers, and now 44 Android and iOS devices are fully supported. Devices that can wirelessly synchronize with Fitbit products require Bluetooth 4.0 on-board, but in the past even devices with the required hardware we not officially supported, and users were forced to try a reverse-engineering approach to get sync up and running. With today's news, that should no longer be an issue for folks with recent Android phones.

In addition to the new devices — we've got the full list below — Fitbit was pretty pumped to announce that their app will come pre-installed on the new HTC One (M8). This should expose more people to their products, which leads to more sales and happy customers.

Fitbit expands sync compatibility, now includes 44 devices

So they added the moto devices and fixed the issues with the Nexus devices. Added HTC and Sony as well. that's really good so they next time I break a phone(or Dies) my supported list is bigger.

Unfortunately background sync seems to be supported only on Samsung devices (or at least not Nexus/Motorola devices where the Android BTLE API is used instead of a proprietary one). This is something I really missed from my iPhone and Galaxy S4.

Stockish is bad, that's why

You really should see the crap I don't post. Sorry if honesty offends you

Too little, too late. Almost twelve months since it was promised. I've moved over to Withings and not regretted a minute.

Amazon even gave me a full refund with no questions as they agreed it was misleading to sell it as Android Compatible (this was a few months ago).

That's a picture of the Fitbit Flex. It does not do elevation. You need either the Force (recalled) or the One.

The LG G2 was already officially added...They changed it so it would run on the LE version of BT that came with 4.4. IOW, they re-certified it.

Awesome, just in time for me to mail back my Fitbit Force. :\ I would have loved to keep it but I just don't see it being supported anymore now that it has been recalled.

Maybe I'll just swype my wife's Fitbit One. I think it has been a few weeks since the last time she even used it.
