Get Your Fitbit Stats With Amazon Alexa

...

Good news for Fitbit users who also happen to have an Amazon Alexa-enabled device: It's about to get more convenient to keep tabs on your fitness.

Now, you can add a new Fitbit skill via the Alexa app, then use the prompt "Alexa, ask Fitbit how I'm doing today," to quickly monitor your progress.

"Our integration with Alexa gives you hands-free access to your data, so you can find out when you walk in the door at the end of the day what your step count is in seconds, and know if you need to go on a quick walk before dinner," Fitbit's Executive Vice President of Interactive, Tim Roberts, said in a statement. "As we look at how this integration could evolve in the future, there is an endless world of possibilities from fitness coaching and nutrition tips, to guidance before bedtime to help you get a more restful night's sleep."

The new integration makes Fitbit the first wearable company to offer customer stats through Alexa-enabled devices, including the Amazon Echo, Tap, Echo Dot, Fire TV fire tv, and Fire TV Stick. The feature works with all Fitbit trackers, including the recently launched Blaze and Alta.

Once you get it set up, Alexa will be able to respond to a "wide range" of voice-enabled requests about your activities over the past week, including how you slept last night, how many active minutes you have logged, or the number of calories burned. Alexa will also offer words of encouragement to help you get your butt moving. If you ask about your step count in the morning, for instance, Alexa might advise you to "take a walk today, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses."

Meanwhile, Alexa also recently learned another skill: banking.
