Fitbit Ionic in the house!

Recommended Posts

The Guru

Well I've got to say I got my Fitbit Ionic today, configured including the OS upgrade to FitbitOS 2 and all working well.

The only issues I've got to resolve are:

  • The PC music transfer tool will not see a lot of MP3 files (what formats are supported)?
  • Weather app is not finding my current location

Apart from that all defined notifications are working, all Fitbit health systems, Strava linking.

The very good news is that it can monitor my heart rate through my tattoos which is something the Gear S3 couldn't.

It feels great on the wrist and the display is very clear. One happy man so far!

There will be, still playing nicely and finding decent watch faces :)

So far I've now:

  • Got the weather working
  • Set up the Switchr app so I can use Maker/IFTTT to control the Sky System
  • Got it controlling the music playback (well Audible book play / pause) on the Note 8
  • Got Strava fully linked and working
  • Set up IFTTT action to log sleep and fitness to spreadsheets on Google Drive

Interesting last use there D. I'll have to find some time to look at IFTTT again! :-)

Here you go with a few random photos! My current fave watch face:

An incoming notification:

A few other watch faces:

And finally the rather decent looking strap. As you can see it is a very svelte, slim and light device.

It is rather. There is even an LCARS watch face but it's a paid item so I've held off buying it, I might though yet!

Now that's cool. I haven't looked for ones on wear OS, but did have one for the Gear S3..£

I'm restraining myself from buying too many watch faces at the moment. Saying that I did buy a watch pack of 12 for $4.99 :)
