Fitbit's Windows Phone 8.1 app coming soon

Popular smart band maker Fitbit has confirmed that it is working on a Windows Phone 8.1 app, WPcentral is reporting.

The company has turned to its community forums to share the good news, though without revealing when such application will be officially released. Chances are this will be a short wait, but you never know.

At the moment Fitbit works on iOS and Android devices, only. Microsoft is eager to make its mobile platform relevant and push major developers to port their apps to Windows Phone.

The latest version of the OS, Windows Phone 8.1, has been announced in April during Microsoft’s BUILD conference. At that time, the Redmond-based company also made its platform free for devices with screens up to 9 inches in a move that would help it get more handset makers on board. So far they managed to attract few OEMs from the emerging markets, the fact that may’ve propelled Fitbit to finally dedicate its resources into development of the Windows Phone app.
