  • Fitbit gets quick replies and menstrual cycle tracking

Fitbit has issued an update for its Ionic and Versa smartwatches, which introduces a host of new features. Android phone owners, you'll have to hold on until later in the month before you can get access.

Fitbit then allows you to take this data and make cycle predictions that get more accurate the more you use it, allowing you to log additional information as you go along.

Fitbit is not the first app to offer period tracking to women. Fitbit's analyses this data to predict where you are in your menstrual cycle and when the next one is coming. There's also an indicator for the predicted ovulation date. Add that together with the fact that Fitbit already has 25.4 million active users, and there's great potential for this to have a huge impact on feminine medical research. For instance, it could recommend more sleep in the coming week because a bad period is on the way, or suggest easier ways to exercise if you're feeling too exhausted.

Fitbit's new female health tracking features will also include a knowledge base curated and developed by a handful of doctors to help women understand topics like the menstrual cycle and fertility better.

Once your device receives the update, quick replies will be turned on automatically for every notification that comes through to your watch. You can respond to previously received messages too, by pulling down your notification shade and tapping on a message.
