We have talked about the touch version of Fitbit for Windows 10 multiple times in the past, as it has received important updates. But now we’re having a look at the companion software of Fitbit to be used in the desktop interface of Windows 10
Fitbit is one of the best health and fitness apps currently available in the Windows Store and there are only good words to be said about it, but if you are interested in the desktop software that lets you set up a new Fitbit device or synchronize with the wireless dongle, then that’s what this article is about. The software isn’t too complicated and doesn’t have plenty of features, as its main job is to send data to Fitbit’s servers. You can do the same thing with the touch version or with other mobile apps.
It is really easy to set up a new Fitbit device, and all you have to do is to download the free software to link your device to Fitbit’s servers. At the moment, you can synchronize the data from the following devices – Force, Flex, One or Zip. I have a good old Zip myself and I’m very pleased with its features. Having used Fitbit Connect on my 10 laptop, I can say that the software works flawless and does the job as it’s supposed to.
