Back when it announced the Versa, Fitbit promised two new features, "Quick Replies" and women's health tracking, would arrive later in the year.

The "female health tracking" tool, available through the Fitbit app on the compatible smartwatches, will roll out this month.

You can have your five default replies no matter what notification you receive, but Fitbit allows you to go an extra mile by customizing these five replies on a per-app basis.

For owners of a Versa or Ionic device, there's now quick replies.

Ironically, while quick replies are only accessible to Fitbit users connecting their wearables to Android phones, menstrual cycle supervision is rolling out to iOS and Windows apps first, expanding to Android by the end of the month.

"According to a recent Fitbit survey, 80 percent of you don't know how many phases are in menstrual cycle and more than 70 percent of you are unable to correctly identify the average length of a cycle", the company wrote on its blog in March. Fitbit also upped the customization ante by giving wearers the ability to fully customize the smartwatch, offering a variety of apps like Starbucks, Strava, and Flipboard, as well as a number of custom clock faces - the brand says there's already over 550 apps and clock faces now available. Those with an Android phone will be able to send up to five custom or pre-population replies that are 60 characters or less. There, you can see where you are in your cycle, when your next period is expected and check your estimated fertile windows. The Versa even offers fitness guidance via Fitbit Coach and allows for swim tracking, boasting a water-resistance up to 50 meters. Fitbit says that all of the apps will be live and available to download for Ionic and Versa user by summer 2018. What's different here is being able to see that in relation to other metrics that Fitbit already tracks, like sleep, weight and activity trends.

With this program, Fitbit has partnered with health care companies to deliver a variety of new apps to help users manage medical conditions - such as cancer or diabetes - and to improve wellness.

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