Fitbit was extremely excited to make this announcement, as the new SDK for Fitbit OS is off to the races. The company claims that there are more than 18,000 developers that are taking advantage of the new SDK.
Fitbit and Google
This announcement comes just after Google announced Fitbit is to be acquired by Google. This acquisition allows Fitbit to “push patient data” using Google’s new Cloud Healthcare API.
The benefit of this partnership with Google is that your health information is properly transferred and shared.
Now, of course, this won’t be done without express consent by the user, so the information will never end up in the “wrong hands”.
What all of this means is that Fitbit is actively striving to make the lives of its users better.
If you are someone who suffers from something like diabetes or other illnesses, these apps will help ensure that you stay on top of everything.
Eventually, there is hope that more smartwatch and fitness tracker makers will announce similar partnerships.
What’s the fun in tracking your fitness, if you can’t track every aspect of your health?
Let us know what you think about these new apps coming to Fitbit smartwatches.
