[prMac.com] Herdecke, Germany - An update for Calories 3.2 is now available from danholt4mac and the Mac Appstore. Calories 3.2 can now fetch data from the popular Fitbit fitness tracking devices Fitbit Ultra Fitnesstracker and the all new Fitbit Zip. This means that Fitbit users need only authorize Calories to access their Fitbit data. From then on, any data tracked by a Fitbit device will be imported into Calories 3. This happens in real time, meaning that the user is always kept up to date, concerning his energy balance. Whoever uses the Fitbit Wireless Aria Personal Scale can now also import his weight data into Calories 3.2 automatically. So now Calories 3.2 can import data from the following devices:
* BodyMedia Fit Armband
* Withings Wireless Personal Scale
* Withings Blood Pressure Monitor
* Fitbit Aria Wireless Personal Scales
* Fitbit Ultra Fitness Tracker
* Fitbit Zip Fitness Tracker
Thanks to a new, central sync-service all devices running Calories 3.2 or Cal2Go 3.0 will be synchronized at the push of one button. Overview of all the new features of Calories 3.2:
* Now supports Fitbit Fitness Trackers and Fitbit Aria Personal Scale
* One click synchronization of all your devices

In addition to updating Calories 3 we have also entirely redesigned the iPhone App Cal2Go. The interface has been updated, making it a lot easier and quicker to use. You can enable Cal2Go to access your data with just a few clicks. Cal2Go also introduces the new, centralized Sync service. While introducing all these new features, we have decided to drastically lower Cal2Go's price point - $1.99 instead of $3.99.
