Fitbit knew it would be launching an app ecosystem from scratch, and Pebble's team had the development tools to make porting an app to its new smartwatch OS a much easier task. A variety of different apps are included here, such as The New York Times, Uber, and Yelp. Some of those apps (like The New York Times, Yelp, and Hue Lights) will be available starting today, but the majority are slated as coming "before the end of the year" or in January. Now, with the Ionic's first software update, many of those issues will be fixed.
Most of the apps are activity-focused, as is appropriate for a gadget now being billed in an aggressive ad campaign as a smartwatch built specifically for fitness.
Along with these official Fitbit apps and watchfaces, the company is adding a new spread of curated user-created apps to the Ionic, some of which the company is previewing here.
More than 100 clock faces to customize the look and feel of Ionic plus at-a-glance access to information like active minutes, heart rate, games, goal progress and more. The only program available at launch will be a "Pet" clock face that gives users a virtual companion to care for with their step achievements, while other apps like a Mood Log, sport-specific tennis support, and more activity incentive games are expected before the end of the year.
