Fitbit is kicking off its week by announcing that a long-requested feature will soon be coming to its products: female health tracking.

If you've opted in to this service, you will see a new female health tracking box on the dashboard grid in the app. Tap to answer a few questions about the length of your cycle and last period and start logging.

The feature allows for in-app period tracking. Quick replies on Android is now rolling out to Ionic and Versa users.

Quick Replies are now exclusive to folks using a Versa or Ionic with an Android phone, and just like Fitbit said earlier in the year, this allows you to reply to texts, tweets, WhatsApp, and more using five pre-loaded messages. You'll now be able to log your cycle and record symptoms such as headaches and cramps. At launch, there's a limit of five custom replies per messaging app.

Fitbit is trying hard to be successful in the smartwatch market and the first step towards that goal is the improvement of its software platform. Fitbit has explicitly said that it wants to attract more women to wearables. Fitbit says that all of the apps will be live and available to download for Ionic and Versa user by summer 2018.

Default quick replies include: 'Yes, ' 'No, ' 'Sounds Good!,' 'Can't talk now - will reply later, ' and'Whats up?' You're also able to respond with a variety of emojis including the smiley face, crying with laughter face, running emoji, and more.

There'll also be user guidance for ovulation, fertility and tips to debunk common misconceptions.
