If you want to monitor your fitness progress with your Fitbit, you can always just glance at its display to see what is happening at the moment, or alternatively you can always launch the app for your history and other details. However it seems that Fitbit owners have a new way of interacting with their biometrics, and that is through Cortana.

Microsoft has recently announced that there is a new Fitbit skill for Cortana. According to Microsoft, “With the new Fitbit skill for Cortana, you can easily monitor your health and fitness goals – just by asking Cortana. Users can access the Fitbit skill across devices and platforms, starting with Windows 10, Android and iOS and soon on the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker.”

We should point out that this does not mean that your Fitbit wearable will suddenly gain a new voice assistant in Cortana, but rather users can use their Cortana-support devices to get information about your biometrics without having to launch the app or access the website. Also because Cortana is integrated into multiple devices like laptops, PCs, and phones, as long as it is tied to their Fitbit users can access this information anytime.

Users who want to get started just have to say, “Hey Cortana, Open Fitbit,” to begin the setup process.
