    Hi Can any of Lumia Icon owners verify if it will sync with Fitbit Flex using Bluetooth 4.0 LE with current Black firmware? How about DP 8.1? The hardware spec said it comes with Bluetooth 4.0 LE.

    If yes, I will get a used one on EBay right now. I am using 928 and really upset that no BT 4.0 LE without the cyan update.

    Thanks

    Bluetooth 4.0 isn't supported by WP8.1. Bluetooth 4.0 isn't baked into the OS; it is part of the firmware. That support will come when the Cyan update is released.

    Sorry.

    You will have to wait for cyan to be able to sync fitbit.

    I tried 8.0 with Black at the Verizon store, and it doesn't detect my Fitbit Flex... can you confirm this, Reignbass118? Thanks for the detailed breakdown!

    OP, it requires 8.1 and Cyan firmware. Read the requirements in the app store. I can't post a link to the app store because I have less than 10 posts, but I'll copy and paste it.

    The free Fitbit app for Windows 8.1 includes:

    ** Requires Windows Phone 8.1 and the Lumia Cyan firmware **

    My bad, I was speaking to Bluetooth 4.0 LE support. The fitbit app doesn't support Wp 8, only 8.1. Thanks, Solaris.

    Another reason to call Verizon and ask when.....This is a good reason for asking...

    Just like if you go to the ellipsis 7 section on Verizon community forums. Someone asked if they could sync their fitbit with their ellipsis 7 tablet and they said yes. But the thing is that, you may be able to have the app and look at information but, you can't sync it since the tablet doesn't have Bluetooth 4.x (was there since I also use an ellipsis).

    Well, no. It isn't "just like that". This fitbit issue is linked to firmware... The phone itself does support BT 4.0 LE.

    Yeah that also means we're out of luck for the new Microsoft band as well. A flagship phone for the #1 or #2 not sure anymore wireless carrier in the US and we can't use Microsoft's new fitness band. I'm not sure who to be pissed at now but this really sucks.

    I just go my MS Band and was able to sync it with my Icon running DP 8.1.1. Don't know if it will work with Fitbit bands.

    I have the latest Preview as well, and a Fitbit Flex. The Flex is NOT discovered by my Icon. There is no way to sync or connect the Icon with a Fitbit Flex currently.

    Whatever MS did with their Band, it does not apply to the Fitbit devices.
