    Default FitBit Zip + Kitkat

    I am in beta for FitBit syncing with Nexus, which on my N7 is doing fine. I just got KitKat updated on my X and I can sync with it also, yay

    Just an FYI for those with FitBit.

    How did you get the beta onto the X? I see from Fitbit's beta signup page that it's for the Nexus line only https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ZVj...vqxmA/viewform

    I do have my Fitbit Flex syncing with my Moto X. In order to get it to work I did have to use a modified fitbit app that was posted on XDA.

    I am the "beta", but it linked to the play store app. So that is the one I am using. I do not guarantee, as the beta is suppose to before Nexus 5/7, but so far its working on my Moto X.

    Will this also work as a trusted bluetooth device or is the connection only made when syncing?

    And to sign up for the beta, you need Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013), or Nexus 5, or at least the info from one of them to fill out the required information sections on the sign up form.

    Thanks for the update. Really hoping that one of the many fitness trackers now on market might work as a trusted BT device

    My wife made me get mine... Not sure how accurate it is, but at least it tells me that I'm a crappy sleeper.. (based on wake, restless and sleep times)

    Is it movement? I feel like I sleep well but tend to move around a lot.

    Girlfriend is convinced I get more sleep than the fitbit shows primarily due to how much I move around while sleeping.

    Just got my invite to test it. Working on my Moto X like a champ. This is the beta I'm talking about.

    No Idea. I don't understand how it works. For example, the other day while working from home, I went up and down the stairs (to the kitchen, put some wash in the dryer, back up to my home office), yet it only registered 3 flights of steps.

    Yesterday, it said I did over 11,054 steps, but I'm not sure when/how, and climbed 15 flights, and did a total of 5.29 miles. Again, not sure when/how. I'm not sure if going out to deal with the snow had anything to do with it? but i still don't know how I could have racked up those numbers even with the snow clean up.

    1.8.4 was released to the playstore. It works with my X (kit kat). And doesn't have the message about problems sync'ing with this version of android. background sync is off by default.
