Fitbit: Health & Fitness
Description of App
Live a healthier, more active life with Fitbit, the world’s leading app for tracking all-day activity, workouts, sleep and more. Use the app on its own to track basic activity and runs on your phone, or connect with one of Fitbit’s many activity trackers and the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale to get a complete picture of your health—including steps, distance, calories burned, sleep, weight, and more.
TRACK ACTIVITY: Accurately record your steps and distance with MobileTrack when you carry your phone. For all-day tracking of stats like calories burned, active minutes, and sleep, pair the app with a Fitbit tracker.
RUN SMARTER: Enhance runs, walks and hikes by using MobileRun to track your pace, time and distance. You can also control your music, get voice cues and use your phone’s GPS to map your routes. (Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)
RECORD WORKOUTS: Use your Fitbit tracker to track your exercise, then check the app to see your stats, their impact on your day, and how your performance is improving.
MONITOR HEART RATE: Use a Fitbit tracker with PurePulse™ to analyze heart rate graphs in the app. Identify trends, manage stress and see the results of your workouts. Review resting heart rate trends to see when your fitness is improving.
LOG FOOD FASTER: Easily log calories with our barcode scanner, calorie estimator, and expanded food database of more than 350,000 foods. See your meal history at a glance, and get nutritional insights.
MEASURE HYDRATION: Quickly log your water intake to make sure you’re properly hydrated during workouts and throughout the day.
SET & MANAGE GOALS: Create weight, nutrition and exercise goals, and start a food plan to stay on track. Then get a visual picture of your progress with colorful, easy-to-read charts and graphs.
SEE HOW YOU SLEEP: Set sleep goals in the app, and use a Fitbit tracker to monitor how much time you spent awake, restless or peacefully sleeping.
SHARE & COMPETE: Connect with friends and family by sharing stats, sending direct-messages, and competing on the leaderboard or in Fitbit Challenges.
STAY MOTIVATED: Get a nudge in the right direction with notifications that pop up when you’re close to reaching a goal or have already met one.
SYNC WIRELESSLY: Fitbit trackers sync your stats to computers and 200+ leading devices so you can continuously track your progress without needing to plug in.
MANAGE WEIGHT: Connect wirelessly to the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale to seamlessly track your weight, BMI, lean mass and body fat percentages, and to see your weight trends over time.

Most of the features on this app are very accessible, and I have no issues. However, logging new foods on the app can be challenging, and the female health tracking feature is not accessible at all. I have tried contacting Fitbit about these issues, with no success.

I‘ve been a Fitbit User for several years now. I mostly wanted a device which would track my sleep, my heart rate, and wouldn‘t need to be recharged every like 24 hours. So, the Fitbit Bands do the trick.
Reading basic statistics, like how long the app thinks I was asleep or how my average heart rate developed over recent days, works pretty well.
However, as soon as it comes to viewing more detailed stats, like WHEN exactly I was in Deep Sleep or during WHICH TIME my heart rate was highest, Fitbit fails miserably due to accessibility.
This is of course because many of these stats are presented graphically. Making them accessible would require a serious commitment from the developers to accessibility, which - as the original poster has experienced - they don‘t seem to make.
It‘s sad nevertheless. And it‘s sadder still that I can‘t find an alternative to Fitbit which actually does this job accessibly.
