IFTTT now automates tasks based on your Fitbit activity

Billy Steele , @wmsteele

If you're sporting one of Fitbit's activity trackers, you can now automate tasks and reminders with the help of IFTTT (If This Then That). The recipe-based software announced a dedicated channel for the sporty gadgets today, handling duties based on goals, activity, sleep, weight and more. For example, you can now log a weigh-in via text message or automatically beam sleep stats to a Google Spreadsheet each morning. Of course, those are just a couple of the possibilities, and users can construct their own formulas as well. Those who prefer Jawbone's wearables have already been privy to the automated life logging, with other wrist-worn devices like the Pebble smartwatch supported too.
