Whether you're using the stock messaging app, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, users can send off a quick reply that's a default "yes", "no", etc, or something custom and personal. Fitbit says that all of the apps will be live and available to download for Ionic and Versa user by summer 2018.

When we reviewed the Fitbit Versa, we told you it was only a so-so smartwatch. Most women who've used any number of dedicated period or fertility apps will know that this is pretty standard fare for such a feature.

Quick replies let Android users choose from five pre-populated responses. When they launched, you weren't able to respond to any notifications that came through to your wrist, even though that's something most other smartwatches can do.

There are plenty of great smartwatches and fitness trackers out there, and the two newest offerings from Fitbit may have recently caught your attention.

Fitbit is currently rolling out its quick replies feature for Versa and Ionic users.Android users now have the ability to respond back to text messages via Fitbit's quick replies feature - Apple's ecosystem doesn't currently allow for similar replies.

If you've opted in to this service, you will see a new female health tracking box on the dashboard grid in the app. Tap to answer a few questions about the length of your cycle and last period and start logging. The two features are now launching, along with a handful of health partner apps and clock faces.

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. Android phone owners, you'll have to hold on until later in the month before you can get access.

Fitbit has supplied five prepopulated responses for users: "Yes", "No", "Sounds good", "Can't talk now, will reply later", and "Whats up?" 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.

Fitbit also debuted the online simulator, a program which allows developers to build apps and clock faces specifically for the Versa and Ionic - without actually owning either device.

Fitbit also announced new health and wellness apps that were created to help all users.

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