Wearables, such as wristbands and smartwatches for fitness purposes, have become fashion accessories especially for people that practice sports but also for anyone who wants to measure certain aspects of their health. Amongst the most successful brands in this field, we have to mention Fitbit, that has launched several health monitoring gadgets. And this is the app with which you can connect their devices to your Android phone.

This manufacturer offers us different devices that are sorted into four categories:
- Health-monitoring wristbands: Zip, Flex 2, Alta, Alta HR, and Charge 2.
- Smartwatches: Blaze and Ionic.
- Sports headphones: Flyer.

To be able to connect them to our smartphone, we need to download this APK. Doing so, we'll be able to make use of the following functions:
- Sync the wireless mode of these devices with your smartphone.

What phones are compatible with Fitbit?
However, not all mobile devices are compatible with the wearables of this brand. They have published a list of those smartphones that are 100% compatible (not appearing on the list doesn't necessarily mean that your phone isn't compatible, but it might not be fully compatible), with handsets made by Xiaomi, HTC, Samsung or Sony, amongst others.
