Fitbit One: first activity tracker to use Bluetooth 4.0 or Smart to sync wirelessly with compatible smartphones

The Fitbit One improves the form factor of the Ultra while retaining the same tracking functionality. Crucially, it adds Bluetooth syncing – thereby eliminating the need to be in 15ft range of the wireless sync hub connected to a computer.

The tracking hardware itself is now a removable module that can be inserted into different clips.

Bluetooth 4.0 and Smart syncing allows you to sync in the background with the Fitbit smartphone app for iPhone or Android. You no longer have to wait to get home to sync with the wireless hub connected to your computer. You can now instantly see your progress, charts and metrics via an automatic sync with your phone as you go about your day.
