Fitbit Ionic update adds new apps and watch faces

Now, Fitbit is tackling both concerns - and more - with the smartwatch's first major update.

The new apps won't immediately vault the Ionic into Apple Watch territory, what with its two-year head start and pedigree, but it's a decent start - if it's not too late after the launch to make a dent, that is. In other countries, the list was even shorter.

New apps from popular brands (including The New York Times, Uber, Yelp, and more) and developers across a variety of categories, such as Food & Drink, Games, Health & Fitness, Home and IOT, News, and Travel & Transit.

The software update also brings nearly 30 free apps and more than 80 watch faces to the App Gallery from smaller developers, which will finally give Ionic owners something to do on their wrists.

Furthermore, there are three more watch faces (Levels, Threads, and Mountainscape), and 100 or so clock faces.

Fitbit created a couple of goodies as well, including a Leaderboard app that will let you see how your step totals compare to family and friends.

Enhancements such as faster touch interactions and updates to Fitbit Pay, including the introduction of multi-card payments directly on-device and expanded banks.

Global customers will gain access to on-device offline music streaming via Deezer, but they'll have to wait until next year.

Finally, the San Francisco company is adding a new early access testing program called Fitbit Labs.

"Ionic has received overwhelmingly positive reviews regarding its leading health and fitness-focused features, long battery life, platform compatibility, and more". Three more apps are coming soon. But now, Fitbit has announced its first major update to the Fitbit OS, promising to provide users with a "smarter, more personalized experience through an expanding collection of new apps and clock faces". Even more additions are expected in January such as Lyft and Walgreens.

Ionic has a way to go on the smartwatch front with the absence of quality apps being one of its biggest criticisms.

This update is rolling out to the Ionic now, and instructions on how to get it can be found here.
