  • Fitbit Versa and Ionic pick up Quick Replies and female health tracking

We know that Fitbit has been making a concerted push into serious health tracking and the addition of eight new healthcare apps to its Fitbit Gallery app store proves that it's not wasting any time in turning its wearables into health monitoring devices.

The feature will be available to Android users at some point later this month. Inside of the Fitbit app, you'll find tracking for female health, as well as quick replies for messaging on Versa and Ionic devices.

The more you log your cycle, the more Fitbit will be able to determine. Fitbit also upped the customization ante by giving wearers the ability to fully customize the smartwatch, offering a variety of apps like Starbucks, Strava, and Flipboard, as well as a number of custom clock faces - the brand says there's already over 550 apps and clock faces now available.

You'll be able to quickly answer incoming texts by choosing one of Fitbit's five pre-programmed responses or certain emojis.

The app also includes "judgment-free" information on ovulation and fertility, and a community tab to connect to other women so you can all sync up or something.

Using the Fitbit app dashboard, users can also create custom replies.

To unleash the new features, users must first update to the latest version of the app from their phone.
