It's probably not too late, though, and besides, both female health tracking capabilities and quick replies are coming to the affordable Versa, as well as the costlier Fitbit Ionic smartwatch, available right now at $250 after a nationwide $50 markdown.

Fitbit's new female health tracking features will also include a knowledge base curated and developed by a handful of doctors to help women understand topics like the menstrual cycle and fertility better.

That new data includes menstrual tracking, which was apparently one of the most requested features by Fitbit users.

Fitbit then allows you to take this data and make cycle predictions that get more accurate the more you use it, allowing you to log additional information as you go along.

As of this month, Fitbit users who have identified themselves as female in their profile will get notifications about female health tracking and they can opt-in to get this data.

Naturally, for this function to work, your Fitbit device will need to be synced to your smartphone via Bluetooth at the time any messages come in.

Fitbit is trying hard to be successful in the smartwatch market and the first step towards that goal is the improvement of its software platform. The first Fitbit wearables were originally released in May 2013. The on-device experience can be used to track where users are in their cycle and see when their period is expected. There will also be groups in Fitbit's Community service for women to connect over.

These new apps are available on all Fitbit platforms. The Fitbit Versa and Ionic are two solid fitness watches that ... In addition to logging your cycle in the app, the Versa and Ionic will also display cycle information and alerts on the watch interface. According to Fitbit, this means women will be able to see how their menstrual cycle affects other health indicators like sleep, weight and food intake.

Finally, Fitbit has also announced a slew of new apps and clock faces, with many of them centered around managing conditions like diabetes and some forms of cancer.

Additional apps from Fitabase, Go365 by Humana, Limeade (available now), Sickweather and Walgreens (now available) have also been announced.
