Brief Summary:
This is a non-significant risk, multi-center, randomized, active-controlled study to compare the effectiveness of two digital therapies in the management of fibromyalgia over 12 weeks. The primary endpoint is mean change from baseline to Week 12 in the weekly revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ-R) total score.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Digital Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Device: Digital ACT
Participants in Digital ACT arm complete daily ACT lessons and activities and continue their non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment as usual.

Active Comparator: Digital Symptom Tracker Device: Digital Symptom Tracker
Participants in the Digital Symptom Tracker arm complete daily symptom and function tracking, have access to digital fibromyalgia and health education, and continue their non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment as usual.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ-R) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 12 ]
    FIQ-R total score ranges between 0-100 with a reduction in score indicating reduced fibromyalgia severity.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Key Secondary Endpoint of This Clinical Trial - Rate of Patient's Global Impression of Change (PGIC) Responders at Week 12 - Any Improvement [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    PGIC scores included are: Very much improved, much improved, minimally improved, no change, minimally worse, much worse, very much worse
