    My contract is almost up and I'm considering the HTC One (M8). Does the HTC One support the Fitbit app Bluetooth sync? I believe the Lumia line needed the Cyan update. Is there some update equivalent on the HTC line, or is does the Fitbit sync work out-of-the-box?

    I can not answer your question because I don't use FitBit. However, the M8 has the latest phone OS offered by MS so as long as Fitbit has been updated it should work.

    A quick email or tweet to FitBit might be the best at getting your answer.

    I was wondering about the sensor hub built into the M8, kind of like sensorcore for new lumia products. I know the Android version has sensor hub, which acts like a built in pedometer. Is this available with the M8 windows version? I have the Lumia 635, which is awesome with the Bing Health and Fitness app in the way it automatically counts steps in the background. Can anyone tell me if this functionality works on the HTC One M8? Thanks.

    Currently Something like Sensor Hub does not exist in the HTCM8 For windows. It has the ability to but they haven't come out with software to take advantage of that yet.

    Those of you that say the fitbit works with your M8s... I converted my wife from iPhone to the m8. Shes now complaining about her fitbit not working like it did with her old iPhone. Apparently the iPhone sync was seamless and automatic. Shes not happy that she has to manual sync the app with the flex.

    Is this something you guys were doing? Manual sync or is it automatic? I don't personally use those damn things and not too familiar. But I am the resident tech too and Im not hearing the end of it since I told her to get the m8 and save 200 bucks... and get double the ram for her music.

    The latest Fitbit app update added the All day sync feature. I have not personally try it due to battery drain concern. But I assume that's what she is looking for.

    So I just wanted to fill everyone in on my follow up with fitbit support.

    I emailed the couple screenshots, advised of steps already taken such as even going as far as uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

    I get an email response that says I "need to wait for Verizon and Microsoft to release the lumia cyan update". !!!!cyan firmware on an htc m8????

    And this is the kind of help we get.???

    I responded back clarifying again my model of phone and correcting them on what Lumina cyan is and only for Lumina phones.... haven't gotten a response back.

    F..ing dimwits!

    I didn't actually have to manually sync, but I did have to open the app for it to sync. It takes a few seconds before it starts to sync. Fairly new to windows phone, but I think it might have something to do with allowing the app to run in the background? I've sort of stopped using my Surge in favor of the Band anyway.

    I am using just fine with Charge HR. I personally don't understand need for continuous auto sync since as soon as open app syncs in about 15 seconds anyway. Maybe missing something. Btw, love the Charge HR.

    I have the HTC One M8 for windows running 8.1 on Verizon. I downloaded the fitbit app but it just searches for the device (flex) and cannot find it. I synced it my PC (windows 10) just to be sure there was nothing wrong with the device (no problem). the device does show up on my Bluetooth list but when I "tap to pair" it says "can't connect". what am I missing?
