Great guide on Fitbit Apps and how to use them

Keeping fit is so important for your physical and mental health, whether on your lunch break or in your leisure time, taking a run is always time well spent.

It is easy to lose focus and not make the effort, this is why we want to show you a whole host of apps and features for your Fitbit's to inspire you and to make your fitness experience that little more fulfilling.

Fitbit brings one of the best fitness platforms out there when it comes to presenting how much or how little you move in an easy-to-understand way.

It not only delivers the data, but it does so in a simple and user-friendly way so you aren't bogged down with too much detail.

The Fitbit app is comprehensive and while the basic features it offers might be obvious, some of Fitbit's best functions are a little harder to find.
