Fitbit has announced that two anticipated features will soon arrive for owners of either the Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic. But not everyone's getting them.

You can also customize your own replies to text messages and messaging apps like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, although there is a 60-character limit.

On the smartwatches, the upcoming period and fertile window will also be represented in a new Fitbit Today personalised health dashboard.

Fitbit is currently rolling out its quick replies feature for Versa and Ionic users.Android users now have the ability to respond back to text messages via Fitbit's quick replies feature - Apple's ecosystem doesn't currently allow for similar replies.

Lastly, Fitbit is also releasing new apps and clock faces that all aim to help people live a healthier life. Users with Android apps will get the feature in a few weeks.

On the watch, you'll find this information in the Fitbit Today dashboard by swiping up from the home screen. The One Drop app (available now) will allow users to be able to sync Fitbit intraday data to their One Drop accounts to see their glucose data on their smartwatch.

Fitbit has supplied five prepopulated responses for users: "Yes", "No", "Sounds good", "Can't talk now, will reply later", and "Whats up?" Or program your own responses from the app.

As you continue to log your cycle and symptoms each month, the female-health tracking app will get smarter as it tailors to your patterns.

Fitbit announced that it is adding a new feature to help women track menstrual cycles called female health tracking. In the future, Fitbit hopes to use all this menstrual data to offer insights about how sleep and exercise impact your period and vice versa.

"According to a recent Fitbit survey, 80 percent of you don't know how many phases are in menstrual cycle and more than 70 percent of you are unable to correctly identify the average length of a cycle", the company wrote on its blog in March. Like the Ionic before it, the Versa still tracks fitness stats with the best of the company's lineup, offering users easy access to daily, weekly, and monthly fitness data, including logged steps, calories burned, and heart rate patterns.
