Google showcased its latest devices and technologies at an event in New York, including the Pixel Watch 2 smartwatch. During this presentation, the company introduced a groundbreaking feature powered by generative artificial intelligence, set to be integrated into the Fitbit app as part of the Fitbit Labs program next year.
AI-Enhanced Fitbit App for Fitness Insights
The revamped Fitbit app will support the Google Pixel Watch 2 and Fitbit Charge 6, harnessing the capabilities of AI to analyze users’ fitness trends. It will offer valuable insights into performance and provide personalized workout tips.
The application introduces a chatbot feature, enabling users to gain deeper insights into their activities, such as post-run assessments with detailed statistics on pace and elevation gain. The AI bot will also delve into the reasons behind workout performance, considering factors like sleep quality, recovery history, and previous workouts. Additionally, it can provide relevant information when users encounter challenges during their workouts.
The Fitbit app won’t stop at chat-based interaction; it will also offer visual feedback through intuitive charts, visualizing users’ performance changes over time, notes NIX Solutions.
James Park, former Fitbit head and current Google executive, announced that this AI-driven feature will undergo testing with “trusted testers” before its official launch.
