Fitbit shows its generosity, makes Premium membership free for 3 months

But staying active, eating nutritious foods, sleeping well, and managing stress are critical to boosting your immunity and your mood. With gyms and fitness centres closed down now in most areas in Australia and not expected to open for quite a few months you could easily give up that hard fought-for fitness with months of Netflix bingeing - or you could use the time to stay / get fit (and Netflix binge) with the help of the Fitbit premium app.

With gyms around the world closing their doors and exercise classes dissolving, Fitbit has chose to give away their free premium training app for 90 days to help you stay active while trapped at home.

If you choose to cancel your Fitbit Premium subscription before the 90-day trial period ends, you will not be charged, but by then you may have developed some habits that you would like to maintain. To access Premium or Coach, all you have to do is visit the Fitbit app.

"For enterprise customers, we are making certain enterprise features, like corporate challenges, available at no cost, so they can help their employees take care of themselves", Park added.

A blog post from Fitbit CEO James Park confirmed the decision, with those signing up for Fitbit Premium now able to take advantage of the extra programs, sleeps tools, and workouts offered by the normally paid-for service. For the regions where Fitbit Premium is not available, the company is offering a 90-day free trial, so users can stream video workouts on their handsets or PCs. If you like the service, you can keep it by paying $9.99 per month after the 90-day free trial; if not, do not forget to cancel before the free trial period ends.

"We look forward to supporting our colleagues in the research community as they conduct this important research".

Users in India who have already exhausted the free trial of the Premium service can further renew their subscription via the Fitbit app.
