Remaining faithful to its pursuit to make Amazon Echo a more basic and essential part of people’s modem homes, Amazon’s smart device can now answer to their Fitbit questions. The company announced earlier this week that you could now ask their Echo virtual assistant, Alexa, the number of step that that have walked, the calorie consumption that they have burnt or the length of the sleep during one night.
This news arrives at just a few days after Amazon’s Echo speaker introduced assistance for Capitol One, which is the first bank to offer account access through the product. Recently, Amazon has included a number of regular services and established profitable partnerships.
For example, people can order Uber rides or Domino’s pizzas straight via Alexa, and Amazon Echo could also offer assistance for Nest’s Learning Thermostat, which was the first device in a smart house. Amazon’s intentions to let customers know about its Echo’s new abilities have surpassed simple informal marketing, since the company carries on spending serious money on TV advertisements that display these new functions.
Amazon smartly created third-party systems for Alexa, which means that any designer can bring new capabilities for Echo customers to test. At first, these ideas were a tad silly, like 8-Ball simulations or other that provide pick-up texts. Since then, popular organizations have joined the program.
Amazon Echo and Fitbit want to make people’s life a lot simpler, because they will spend a reduced amount of time verifying their health and fitness tracker or the dedicated apps by asking their Alexa VA for updates.
However, this it may not be a thing that customers use while they are resting on a couch and eating a Domino’s pizza that they just ordered. The Echo smart speaker really takes the challenging part of turning off all home lights, due to the partnership with major companies like and it can really meet the needs of people’s domestic comfort, too.
Taking into consideration the fact that Fitbit was the initial wearable organization to offer support for Microsoft Cortana VA for voice-commanded food and sport logging, it is a normal move for this health and fitness business.
Amazon Echo may be linked to a number of Fitbit gadgets, such as the newly released Fitbit Alta and Fitbit Blaze. It will also work with other future Alexa-able gadgets like the Amazon Tap and Echo Dot, so it will continue to perform together with the Fire TV or Fire TV dongle, as well.
