Enter the #Made4Fitbit App Challenge

Developers: get ready to rumble with the Fitbit SDK. Does your app have what it takes to rise victorious?

The #Made4Fitbit App Challenge invites developers to create amazing new experiences on the Fitbit OS platform, helping our global user base live healthier, smarter, and happier lives.

We're inviting developers to compete in one (or all) of three app categories: Sports + Fitness, Health + Wellness, Transportation + Local.

Apps will be reviewed by Team Fitbit and an independent panel of judges from the technology, wearables, and health communities. Entries will be scored according to the following criteria: Innovative use of the Fitbit SDK, Functionality, Relevance to App Category, Look + feel.

The App Challenge will recognize three finalists in each app category with First, Second, and Third Place prizes. In addition to category champions, we will also crown one App Grand Champ—the app with the highest overall score among the entire pool of entries.

More than $15,000 in prizes are available for winning apps. All contestants who submit an eligible Fitbit OS app will receive a #Made4Fitbit t-shirt. Winners can look forward to featured placement in the Fitbit App Gallery, in addition to the following:
