FitBit Can Now Remind You to Move Periodically Throughout the Day

Some of the data from your fitness trackers might not be terribly useful, but they're pretty helpful for remembering to work out. Now, FitBit's getting even better at it by reminding you to move around a bit throughout the day.
For office workers especially, it can be hard to remember to move around. You need to
get away from the desk every once in a while
, but your work encourages you to sit still for hours at a time. If you have a FitBit, you can now set certain hours throughout the day where you're at a higher risk for too much immobility. During this time, if you haven't moved around enough in an hour, your tracker will buzz to remind you. It's a small change that can make a huge difference if you're the kind to get a little too sucked into your work.
