Fitbit also launched third-party app development for Ionic.
You had me at 4+ day battery. If Apple can't compete with that with Series 3, they utterly fail. I will take compromised compatibility and experience over compromised battery any day. RIP Pebble.
Did they really steal "3 activity rings" from apple watch?
@tombielecki @zduboss Apple stole this from Fitbit, which used progress rings on the dashboard of its app prior to the Apple Watch.
I am really excited about the app development/APIs. ( I hope Fitbit will be able to really "unlock" their devices thanks to this! What do you think? Thanks @jeremiahlee for hunting! - A Fitbit Blaze owner
