Happy new year from Fitabase! We’ve spent the first month of 2024 hard at work on new additions and updates that you might have noticed. Here’s what we launched in January:

📊 New Garmin datasets

  • Heart Rate Variability (HRV). We have this for Fitbit, as well. 
  • Also in the works is Garmin nap data 

📑 Updated data dictionaries

  • Fitbit: We added SpO2, temperature, and breathing rate 
  • Garmin: We added HRV to align with the brand new data set 

👀 Some things you might have noticed 

  • “SMS Messages” are now called “Reminders”
    If you’re moving through a trial of the platform or have messaging turned on for your project, you might have noticed that we’ve changed the name of “SMS Messages” to “Reminders.” The functionality hasn’t changed – just the name! 
  • A new handy little lightbulb near the top of the page
    If you’re in a trial or have messaging turned on for your project, you’ll see this when you’re looking at Messaging or User connection pages. This little lightbulb has tips for you on how to best use the tools of the page you’re in. 
  • Info when you hover over a participant ID
    Did you know if you click a participant’s user ID from your participant list page, you’ll be able to set up their sync dates, tags, and messaging? We were worried you didn’t, so we added a little popover to remind you of what’s behind that link. 

Here’s what’s coming up

✉️ New messaging tools
We’re working on an addition to our reminder functionality that we’re excited to share in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for an email announcement about it. If you’d like to be added to our distribution list for announcements and newsletters, email with the subject line “Add me to the list!” 

🧪 Testing
We’d love your help in testing out prototypes of a new suite of messaging tools that we’re going to be rolling out over the next few quarters. To sign up to be part of the testing pool, fill out this form and we’ll get in touch!
