Here are the New Apps for the Fitbit Ionic

TechCrunch reports that a software update has brought over 60 new apps and watchfaces to Fitbit’s first proper smartwatch, the Ionic. I can’t for the life of me find a definitive listing anywhere—whereas, for example, the Pebble App and Watchface store can still be perused online from any desktop computer, Fitbit offers no such convenience.

Anyway, here are 14 highlights from a blog post on Fitbit.com:

British Airways
Clue
Flipboard
GAME GOLF
Lyft
Nest
New York Times
Philips Hue Lights
Surfline
TripAdvisor
Uber
United Airlines
Walgreens
Yelp

In addition there are a bunch of new watchfaces (many recycled from Pebble) and also a native app for the streaming music service Deezer, coming in 2018.

Something that also might be of interest to Fitbit users is news of more banks supporting Fitbit Pay. Here’s a list of North American partners so far:

USA
American Express
Bank of America
Boeing Employees Credit Union
Capital One
First Tech Federal Credit Union
Security Service Federal Credit Union
U.S. Bank

Canada
None yet (sounds about right)
