Fitbit is a well-known brand that produces smartwatches, fitness trackers, pedometers, and much more.
Recently, the company discontinued some of the popular features from its app like Open Groups, Challenges and Adventures. And understandably, customers are not happy with the company’s move.
Stridekick app as an alternative after Fitbit removed open groups, challenges and adventures
Due to this, frustrated Fitbit owners are now exploring alternatives that will keep them socializing with fellow fitness freaks through challenges.
Of course, there are various options out there such as Apple Watch and even Garmin. But these require a whole new hardware — a hassle not everyone wants or can afford.
The Stridekick app can connect to most popular fitness trackers available on the market including Fitbit, Apple Watch, Garmin, Xiaomi, and many more.
The app also allows users to easily compete with their friends, which is part of the reason Fitbit users see it as an alternative now that challenges and adventures are gone.
Stridekick is good for challenges and you can be in a challenge with people no matter what kind of tracker they have (assuming it’s one that integrates with Stridekick).
I’ve been testing out Stridekick with some of my friends after recommendations
One can start challenges based on steps, running, cycling, and swimming. Along with this, you can also choose the duration of the challenges, be it one day, weekend, week, or custom dates.
Having said that, do let us know if you’ll be switching to Stridekick now that open groups, challenges and adventures are gone from the Fitbit app or if you have another alternative.
