See how Cortana just made Fitbit way better


Fitbit and Microsoft’s Cortana are teaming up to make both fetching and feeding fitness-related commands much easier.

Cortana’s growing set of skills has now added Fitbit, arguably the biggest and most popular wearable maker to its verbal repertoire.

In essence, the functionality is no different than just looking down at your Fitbit. After linking up the Fitbit app with Cortana on your Windows 10 PC, or on your iOS or Android device, Microsoft’s personal assistant immediately knows everything about you. 

From the amount of water you’ve had and your daily workout progress to checking your rank on the leaderboard, Cortana takes the most useful info straight from the app and spits it out to you.

In most scenarios, just looking down at your wearable, whether it’s the Fitbit Charge 2, the Fitbit Blaze or the new Fitbit smartwatch, is much more practical than shouting out a question or command.
