The very first thing you will in the redesigned app are the tabs. What used to be five tabs, Fitbit has narrowed and consolidated it down to three tabs – Discover, Today and Community tabs.

Today tab

In the Today tab, you will find all of your stats such as steps, distance, calories, sleep stats, heart beat and many more. Also, the Today tab is where you will find new tips and educational insights to inform you about your healthy activities and sleep habits.

Well, you will pretty much see everything that was in the Dashboard tab before.

Community tab

The third tab is the Community tab. This tab remained somewhat unchanged. It is where you will still find your feed, friends and groups.

The Community tab is very useful for when you want to keep connected to Fitbit’s over 27 million global social community. This includes friends, family and co-workers.

A user-friendly interface that is for all

You may have probably noticed that the Notifications tab has been removed. But you will be able to access it through the Inbox icon in the uppermost right-hand corner of the screen.

Additionally, the new Fitbit app helps logging in water you drink. But if you think that tracking your water intake is not as important, you can easily remove this tile from the Today tab.

And as you use your Fitbit wearable and go on with your day, messages and tips will still appear at the top of the screen. You can always choose to view more or less with just a tap on the thumb’s up or thumb’s down icon. But tapping the X closes and hides these insights for a couple of days.

The fresh and redesigned app has already made its debut to some phones. It is not clear when the rollout will happen to the rest of the world. For sure, it will only be a matter of days before everyone can experience it on their mobile devices.
