Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) revealed today a suite of new apps and clock faces designed to help people manage their health, including a glucose monitoring app from Dexcom (NSDQ:DXCM) that is slated to launch in the second half of 2018.
The Las Vegas-based company also announced programming from Diplomat Pharmacy, Humana (NYSE:HUM), One Drop and Walgreens.
“Smartwatches provide a powerful platform to deliver important health tools that help our users manage conditions more conveniently than ever before. With these apps and clock faces, we continue to deliver on our promise to bring important health information to the wrist,” Fitbit co-founder & CEO James Park said in prepared remarks.
The app from Diplomat Pharmacy is designed to help cancer patients manage their medication and remind them to refill their prescriptions, according to Fitbit. One Drop’s app will allow users to sync their activity data to their One Drop diabetes management accounts and see their glucose data on their smartwatch.
Humana’s Go365 app is a wellness and rewards program, Fitbit said, that will let users track their activities and redeem them for e-gift cards, fitness gear and charitable donations.
“With our strong consumer engagement, cross-platform compatibility, and intuitive software and services we have become a wearable partner of choice for leaders across the healthcare industry. Together, we aim to inspire positive behavior change that can ultimately improve health outcomes and reduce costs,” Park added.
Fitbit touted that more than 18,000 developers have joined the company’s developer community and are actively creating content.
