Via a recently announced API integration, Fitbit users can now track their exercise and weight statistics using the Kurbo mobile health-coaching app.

A media release from Kurbo explains that teens and adults who use the Kurbo app along with a Fitbit fitness tracker, Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale, or the Fitbit app will be able to log their health and fitness stats—including exercise duration and weight—into the Kurbo app.

In addition, Kurbo personal health coaches will be able to use the Fitbit information to help provide more personalized health-monitoring guidance to users, while more effectively monitoring their progress.

“By integrating Fitbit’s open API into our app, we have made it that much easier for our teen and adult users who enjoy wearables to track their progress,” says Kurbo CEO and co-founder Joanna Strober, in the release. “It also ensures we have accurate health and activity tracking data in our system to provide useful feedback to our customers.”
