Fitbit will be issuing a second software update later today to deal with a bug that can cause the Fitbit app to consume a large amount of mobile data. Some users have also reported an extra strain on battery life. So far its only the company’s Android app that has been affected.

The San Francisco outfit first acknowledged the problem last week. This was after some of its customers turned to Twitter and Fitbit’s forum pages to flag up the issues.

Fitbit is a company I am surprised Microsoft never acquired.
