The feature will be available to all Ionic and Versa users. The Bitmoji character on the screen will change based on what they are doing, the time of day, weather and how active they are. Fitbit hopes this will give users a bit more motivation to push towards smashing those daily goals.
Through integrated APIs on both platforms, the new clock face will be powered by Snap’s developer platform, Snap Kit. There are more than 50 animations in total. These include waving hello in the morning, throwing confetti when you reach your step goal, meditating when you are totally relaxed and more.
The Bitmoji clock face certainly looks like it will be a popular addition to the 3,000 smartwatch apps and clock faces Fitbit already offers. It adds a bit more fun to tracking your activity.
“Giving our users experiences that are personalized, engaging, and delightful is at the core of what we do at Fitbit,” said Tim Rosa, CMO of Fitbit.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Snap to give our millions of users around the globe a creative, shareable depiction of their health and fitness progress through this imaginative concept. The Fitbit x Bitmoji dynamic clock face is the collective result from both Fitbit and Snap teams, to create a new way to help motivate people to be healthier and have lots of fun doing it.”
Users of the Fitbit Versa range, Fitbit Ionic and Fitbit Ionic Adidas Edition are able to download the dynamic clock face now through the App Gallery. When installing they will be prompted to connect the Bitmoji account using Snapchat via the Fitbit App settings page.
