Fitbit For iOS Updated With Support For M7 CoprocessorFitness enthusiasts probably rely on some accessories or apps which they use to track their progress, whether it be how long they’ve run for, how many calories they have burnt, or how many steps they’ve taken, there’s an app or accessory for that. The good news for Fitbit users is that if you were hoping for similar functionality that was introduced with the Nike+ Move and Runkeeper, you’re in luck as the app has been recently updated that has not only tweaked the app’s user interface a little, but has also introduced a new MobileTrack feature that takes advantage of Apple’s new M7 motion coprocessor in the iPhone 5s.

The new MobileTrack feature allows the app to track the user’s steps, distance, and calories burnt and will be a feature that will work only on the iPhone 5s, at least that’s what the company claims. However given that the iPad Air and Retina iPad mini also sport the M7 coprocessor, we don’t see why the app can’t work with those devices as well, although we guess it’s not very convenient to carry a tablet with you while you run. In any case the app itself is free for download so if you own the iPhone 5s and would like to take it for a spin, hit up the iTunes App Store for the download.
