Fitbit Android app will now sync in real time with select Samsung devices

Fitbit has updated its Android activity tracking app for Android, adding in a major new feature for select Samsung devices.  Available immediately, the new app connects via Bluetooth 4.0 (the first for Android) and can sync real time with the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II. With additional models promised in the future, we can see comments in Google Play that others are already working.

The Fitbit One, Fitbit Zip and Fitbit Flex wireless activity trackers will now sync in real time directly with select Samsung devices, allowing you to see your Fitbit dashboard wherever you are, get real-time updates, receive motivating notifications and engage in fitness competitions with friends all on your Android device.


By giving immediate feedback and encouraging you to move more, Bluetooth 4.0 syncing now further helps Android users make fitness part of their everyday lifestyle.

Also, new to the Android app is support for NFC connectivity. For those who the Flex, you can simply tap the band to your device and launch the app.

  • Set up and wirelessly sync (beta) the Fitbit Zip or the Fitbit One Activity Trackers (Samsung Galaxy S3 or Note2 required).
