Fitbit app adds Covid 19 Resource Hub
Fitbit is launching a “COVID-19 Resource Hub” into their app on Android and iOS.
Last month, Fitbit already began supporting the millions of folks who were staying at home by launching an extended 90-day trial of their Fitbit Premium subscription. This allows folks to access a swath of Premium-only exercise routines and personalized health insights.
Expanding on that, today, Fitbit has formally launched a new tab in their app dedicated to resources you can take advantage of to stay in good health. Alongside easy access to the latest information from the World Health Organization, Fitbit’s COVID-19 Resource Hub includes things like the “Clean Cues” watch face, which reminds you to wash your hands regularly.
Additionally, Fitbit is going to continue to use anonymized and aggregated health information to gain and share insights into how their community is responding to the coronavirus pandemic. For example, the company has already shared how COVID-19 has caused many of us to sleep longer and move less.
For now, the COVID-19 Resource Hub is only available on devices set to English in one of 16 countries, though more languages and countries should be launching in the coming weeks.
