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. Add that together with the fact that Fitbit already has 25.4 million active users, and there's great potential for this to have a huge impact on feminine medical research.

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