FitBit added call notifications for long abandoned Force, which still many are using

Just when I thought FitBit is forever and ever abandoning FitBit Force, looks like Retna and I are not the only few left in the world whom still using the Force.

The product was recalled after there were many complaints about the skin allergies and rashes.

Some of the firmwares such as call notifications that were supposed to come, seems scraped.

Well, it is back on now.

FitBit just released the latest firmware for the Force, and now one can have call notification as well as additional watch face.  But the watch face is nothing to shout about.  Added date.

For the calls, I have yet to test it.  But it took a while to get it pair.  Yep, you need to pair the FitBit again with the iPhone, for the bluetooth connection.  Sucks.

Also the connectivity between the two seems a bit wonky, not all the time connected, there were times, I have to restart my phone just to get it work.

Sucks, again.

By the way, it would be paired as Charge, instead of Force, well, now we know what architecture Charge is based on.

I certainly welcome this kind of update.

Have fun.
