Still in its infancy this nifty app IFTTT (if this, then, that) helps you create ‘recipes’ that make your life run like clockwork. For example, one recipe could be; “If (this) I leave work, then send an email to my partner that lets them know I’m on my way”, all enabled by the app tracking the location of your phone and having email send permissions.
More specifically this can be used alongside your tracker to help monitor your fitness goals. For example; IFTTT can automatically upload your daily activity into a simple google spread sheet, giving you much greater control over your fitness data. You can even ask it to set up an event reminder telling you to go to bed earlier if your fitness tracker data tells it you’ve have a bad night’s sleep the day before.
The possibilities seem endless. IFTT is currently only integrated with FitBit models, but will hopefully be integrated with further brands and models in the future.
