The Fitbit app is getting a fresh design come fall, with early beta invites already going out to select users, according to Google.
The Google-owned health app is not only getting a redesign, but a new layout and presentation of users’ data, too. The Fitbit app will have a “simpler design and more motivating content,” according to Google’s announcement on Tuesday.
This new “simplified” app breaks down users’ most important information into three distinct tabs. All of their latest stats will be in the “Today” tab, which can be personalized based on their goals. The data will also be broken down into charts and graphs for easy access. The “Coach” tab will provide users with “workouts and mindfulness sessions.” Premium subscribers can also find paywalled classes in this tab. And the final tab is “You,” where users will be able to manage their account, community connections, personal progress, and more.
Aside from the new layout centered around these three tabs, Google is focusing heavily on the overall new look. Visually, the new Fitbit app has a more Google-esque feel than it did previously, with its new icons and color palette. The company also highlighted how users’ health data will be easier to track and information will be able to be logged in the mobile app even without using a Fitbit device.
As The Verge points out, Google likely isn’t updating the Fitbit app without a broader concurrent launch. The fall release appears to coincide with a potential Pixel Watch 2 announcement, which is expected around the same time.
