Xamarin Fitbit / Polar / Garmin device communication ?

Does anyone know if you can communicate with any of the fitness products out there with a Xamarin app?
It seems they are using bluetooth for comms.
I have an idea for an app that would benefit greatly from getting information from the devices either in real time or by downloading data from the device.
I know that Fitbit offers an API but that required the data to go upstream to their web site first.

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions

    I believe FitBit doesn't allow the real-time access of data.

    I myself have worked with the Microsoft Band before. There is a component in the Xamarin Store for it.

    I saw your excellent post about the Microsoft band but they don't have enough market share to base a product on....Fitbit is everywhere :)

    Thank you! And you are absolutely right, but then you'll have to settle for non-real time data unfortunately.

    yeah...I was hoping that someone was hacking it or something :)
