Congratulations, #Made4Fitbit App Challenge Winners!

After reviewing a jam-packed field of worthy entries, our judges put each app through its paces and picked the cream of the crop. We're happy to announce the best entries from our first-ever #Made4Fitbit App Challenge, crown a grand champ, and award some prizes!

The App Challenge invited developers to compete in three categories: Health + Wellness, Sports + Fitness, and Transportation + Local. The categories showcase Fitbit Ionic's strengths as a premier health and fitness device with smart features bundled in to help people get things done.

Fitbit Ionic users can enjoy all the apps below today.* Visit the Fitbit App Gallery on your Fitbit mobile app, or visit the download links provided from a mobile browser.

Health + Wellness

2nd Place: Jacadi by Grégoire

Stay sharp with a perfect watch game---brief, easy to learn, yet challenging. Concentrate on the pattern of lights, then repeat the pattern by tapping the screen. As you succeed, the series of lights will become progressively longer and more complex. The top score on the screen is your current score, while the bottom score indicates your high score. From the judges: Lots of fun! Our best score is 19. Need to get better short-term memory. Beautiful app.
