    Fitbit has an open API does your app take in the information from their Charge2, Surge, Blaze and Charge HR trackers which measure heart rate?

    Not at this time Gareth. I know Fitbit was under litigation for HR inaccuracies last January.  There is still a lot of development that needs to be done with wrist based HR Readings.  I had a Fitbit Charge HR and can attest that it is not accurate.  However, with Fitbit's open API, we can look at this in the future if they can do a better job reporting accurate HR's.  However, building in these sorts of things take time and it is not on our priority list at this moment.
