  • The Fitbit Ionic's first major update adds new apps and watchfaces

The Fitbit Ionic is Fitbit's first true smartwatch, and although not ideal, it's a great step in the right direction for the company. What other apps would you like to see on the Fitbit Ionic? That App Gallery is now live, and with it comes a handful of new apps. In other countries, the list was even shorter. The launch software was pretty bare bones, but the new version brings a ton of new apps and watch faces, along with performance improvements.

The new apps launching now are ETrade, Flipboard, a Hue Lights control app, Surfline (surf reports), the New York Times and Yelp.

Furthermore, there are three more watch faces (Levels, Threads, and Mountainscape), and 100 or so clock faces. Deezer's also getting in on the action next year, becoming the second notable music service after Pandora to buy in to the Ionic ecosystem.

Lastly, Fitbit is adding a new early access testing program for the Ionic called Fitbit Labs, which will allow users to test out "experimental apps and clock faces". According to Fitbit, this initiative will provide a testing ground for potential new features in the form of experimental apps and smart clock faces created to motivate users and drive behavior change, giving the company a highly scalable way to test new features and analyze anonymous user data and feedback to help accelerate the development of future technologies.

It was gathered that police officers also found fingernail fragments underneath his iPhone and on a bedside table. Authorities also found an empty bottle of Stella Artois and a glass of Corona, which was partly empty.

The most exciting part might be Fitbit Labs, where the company plans to explore new ideas like gamified fitness. The program launches today with two apps: a Fitbit Pet watchface that's a little like a Tamagotchi, and an app called Think Fast that looks to test mental sharpness. Three more apps are coming soon.

Ionic has received overwhelmingly positive reviews regarding its leading health and fitness-focused features, long battery life, platform compatibility, and more.

Perhaps the biggest addition is a slate of new apps from popular brands. The inclusion of a third-party app store was one of the ways the company was looking to set the device apart from the rest of its products, and aside from a couple of high profile partners, there really wasn't much worth mentioning.

The initial TripAdvisor app for Fitbit's Ionic smartwatch. While this update won't necessarily fix the problem, it will help to improve the situation. We'll update the Ionic review once we have a chance to test out these new apps and features.
