December 12th

  • fitIQ is no longer free: existing free users have been given an extended trial of Pro membership
  • The trends page now shows estimated values in brackets alongside actuals, so you can see where you're currently at vs. where you might be at the end of the period:

December 11th

  • A backfill process has been added to the My Account section which can be used to fill in gaps in your data
  • The trends page now allows the table to be scrolled left/right on smaller devices, rather than simply cutting off columns. This makes it a lot more useful on mobile!

  • This graph is useful for smoothing out the noise in your day-to-day recovery and seeing trends in your data instead
  • Use narrow windows (like 14 days) for more accuracy in exchange for more noise, or wider windows (like 90, 180 or even 365 days) for a smoother long-term picture

  • The 'Training volume' triple stats shown underneath the graph were incorrectly calculated - this has been fixed
  • Training volume can now be split and stacked by activity type or summed as before

  • Every person you refer contributes towards a few new badges, regardless of whether they go Pro or not 🏅

August 17th

  • Almost all charts within the Metrics section now group data by day, week or month depending on your selected date range - previously some stubbornly showed data by day even when the time frame was far too large to make the visualisation useful. They should feel a lot more intuitive now
  • Charts are spaced together a little more tightly, looking especially better on smaller devices 📱
  • Some chart axes and labels weren't being formatted correctly - this has been fixed 📈

August 15th

  • Fixed a nasty bug calculating streaks which might've prevented streaks accruing and badges being earned in some rare cases

  • Two new badges are live: 'Recovery bingo' and 'Jack of all trades' - thanks for the suggestions, @curtis!
  • ...has anyone managed to get a full house yet? 🤔

  • 90-day statistics are actually now X-day statistics: choose between 30, 60 and 90 day ranges
  • Added a Free Vs Pro feature and price comparison page
  • Some badges weren't displayed on your public profile if you've enabled badge sharing - that is now fixed

July 6th

  • All charts now have more appropriate labels and tooltips (e.g. hours/minutes rather than minutes for training and sleep)

  • Centurion and Millennial badges now show when you earned them (if you've earned them!)
