FitBit Syncing Coming to More Devices Thanks to Android 4.3 and Bluetooth 4.0

If your New Years resolution is the same as mine, you are looking to stay active and healthy. A huge group of new users who received FitBit devices as holiday gifts this season will be excited to hear that their Android devices can now sync properly. The official list of supported Android phones and tablets has recently doubled. 

FitBit’s devices need Bluetooth 4.0 to be able to sync in the background processes of your device without draining the battery incredibly fast. While many devices featured Bluetooth 4.0 chips, they couldn’t be utilized until Android 4.3 or 4.4 rolled out. Now that Jelly Bean and Kit Kat are a bit more prevalent, the list is much longer. Some of the new devices are:

  • DROID Mini, ULTRA, MAXX
  • DROID RAZR, RAZR HD, RAZR HD MAXX
  • Moto X
  • HTC One
  • LG G2
  • Nexus 4, 5, 7

Good news is that your FitBit and Android device will now get along just fine! Bad news is that you don’t have an excuse to skip the gym anymore. Keep an eye on Droid Life over the next week for our FitBit Force review.
