    I am thinking of getting either a Fitbit or possibly a Garmin fitness device but am not sure of the compatibility between the apps and my K1. Any thoughts or personal experiences would be appreciated.

    You will have absolutely no problems whichever device you choose. It's an android device with no app limitations.

    If my experience with the Movado Connect is any indication; you should experience a seamless integration with the Hub and other notifications from the KEYone.

    I've been using Fitbit with my KEYone since I received it in June 2016. I've had no issues, syncing and connected GPS work great.

    Just stumbled across this thread. The android BBs have never been supported by fitbit. So, while the OP will be able to install the Fitbit app, the Fitbit and the phone may not behave properly together. There’s lots of anecdotal evidence of that on the Fitbit forums.

    I recently won a Garmin Vivosport in a raffle and I am experiencing no problems with the Garmin Connect app on my K1. I have not tried to integrate it with the Hub but I do get notifications from Connect on the phone and I also get at least some Android notifications on the watch. I'm satisfied.

    Honestly, I read those threads and can't believe how idiotic people can be. I've used a fitbit blaze and now use a fitbit ionic with ZERO issues. The new fitbit app is agnostic as to which android device you use. My ionic is perfectly synced and both GPS and contactless pay work seamlessly.

    Edit: I DID have issues with my PRIV and the fitbit blaze, but all of that changed when I moved to K1

    also running the ionic and keyone. the only thing i did was change the battery optimization on the fitbit app so it was not optimized and that helped prevent delays on the notifications.

    Garmin app is disappointing, but it's just IMHO, vivosmart 3 has no issues though.

    Try by reseting Bluetooth connection from both sides and reconnect

    I think that there were some issues with fitbit originally, but the BB team were able to make it work. I have a fitbit and it works pretty well, kind of hoping that Oreo will make the syncing a little more automatic/seamless, but it works fine. I was looking at the new fitbit charge 3 coming out soon, and I think it operates on a different system, so that may require BB to do some work to get them to link.

    Hi, My Fitbit Charge 2 worked fine with my KeyOne - I've just got a Fitbit Charge 3 and it won't connect to the phone. I'm syncing the Fitbit with my desktop app as a workaround but it's not very convenient. I hope there'll be an update to the phone to fix this.

    Did you remove the Charge 2 first? That could be the issue if no

    I don't know about compatibility, but if you have a chance - take Fitbit over Garmin. Talking here with hell of an experience.

    Hi, I removed the Charge 2 immediately prior to trying to add the Charge 3. I'm pleased to report it is now working perfectly. Must have been a timing issue, the phone was switched off today while I was flying to Spain and as soon as I landed and switched flight mode off I started getting notifications on the Fitbit as well as the phone and I can now sync it using the phone app, Brilliant!! (But a little curious ).

    Just bought a Charge 2 syncs well on my K1 but would not update the firmware so I decided to try it on my old Nexus 6p, firmware updated superbly well, this may be charge 2 specific, who knows.....
