Updated FIT SDK

04/12/16 @ 12:33 PM

We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the FIT SDK 2.0!

This release includes many small upgrades to enhance performance and functionality, but the star of the show is the addition of customizable data fields. Developers have long requested the ability to add dedicated metrics to highlight their specialized programs — and we listened. The new data fields can be coded to your specifications and then easily shared with other FIT developers.

Moving forward, most devices will primarily support the creation of FIT 2.0 files, so if you intend to continue development using FIT files, then it is very important that you update. If you do not update, your program will not be able to correctly decode the new 2.0 files without breaking your application data flow.

This exciting update is currently scheduled to release in Q2 2016 but please feel free to visit the site to see if we release an early beta version - wink wink.  Please join the discussion at our FIT forums located at to address any questions or concerns you have.

We look forward assisting in your success as you continue to Build Something with Us!
