The App Gallery from Fitbit includes a wide gamut of apps and games. All of these apps are free, but a few service apps may require a connected account, which may result a fee. Let's take a look at our favorite Fitbit Ionic apps.


With Deezer, you can now stream music directly from the wrist, of course you do need a pair of Bluetooth headphones. It offers around 53 million tracks to its subscribers, while Deezer Flow help you to mix up your old favorites with new recommendations.

The New York Times

The New York Times app will you bite-sized snippets of all the big stories of the day. But if you need to access the full article, you will have to either go to the app or site. The plus is that you don't need a Times subscription to use the app.

Think Fast

Think Fast, made by Fitbit Labs, is an addictive game. This two-minute rapid-fire game will test your cognitive ability and reaction time. You need to look at the fruit on the left and select which of the two options on the right match the fruit type, colour or price, depending on what it asks for.

This is a super cool app. It tells you if you are drinking less water than required or more alcohol than desired. Drink Counter will help you keep track of your intake. A man-shaped gauge tracks your level of sobriety, the more complete the gauge is, the less we can say about your sobriety.
