Since launching their first tracker in 2007, Fitbit has transformed millions of lives with their wearable technology by redefining what’s possible. It’s a history built by inventing the future. Only Fitbit gives you the freedom to get fit your way with wearable technology.
Everyone’s approach to fitness is different. One-size-fits-all doesn’t always fit you. That’s why they created a family of products that work seamlessly with each other, your budget, your favourite apps and your goals.
They have a history of inventing the future. They were the first in the category, the first to introduce automatic, wireless syncing, and the first to provide an open API. There algorithms have been the benchmark.
Even now, when they’re got industry-leading battery life and the thinnest, lightest GPS + heart rate device on the shelf—they’re still just getting started.
Fitness is more fun with friends and family. Lucky for you, all yours are on Fitbit. Fitbit is accessible on 200+ phones, including Android, iOS and Windows—more than any other tracker. Now you can connect, share and compete when you want, with anyone you want. On the walk to work, at the weight room or in the last mile.
Somewhere between first tries and finish lines. Pillow fights and pushing limits. That’s where you find fitness. Every moment matters and every bit makes a big impact. Because fitness is the sum of your life. That’s the idea Fitbit was built on—that fitness is not just about gym time. It’s all the time.
How you spend your day determines when you reach your goals. And seeing your progress helps you see what’s possible. When it comes to reaching your fitness goals, steps are just the beginning. Fitbit tracks every part of your day—including activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep—to help you find your fit, stay motivated, and see how small steps make a big impact.
The Fitbit app has a purpose for every part of your day.
View progress towards your daily goals for steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes, and see your trends over time.
Sleep Goals & Tools
Use a Fitbit tracker to record your sleep at night. Then, use the sleep tools in the app to set a weekly sleep goal, create bedtime reminders and wake targets, and review your sleep trends over time.
If you want to track your activity but don’t have a Fitbit tracker, you can use your smartphone to record basic stats like steps, distance and calories burned.
Connect multiple trackers to one account and the Fitbit app will automatically detect when you switch between them. So you can wear Fitbit Surge FITNESS SUPER WATCH during workouts and use Fitbit One ACTIVITY + SLEEP TRACKERto discreetly track your day.
Activity & Workouts
Find more insights on your performance and the motivation to keep moving.
Enhance runs, walks and hikes by using the Fitbit app on your smartphone to track pace, time and distance. You can also control your music and use voice cues to stay in command.
Logged workouts will pop up in your exercise calendar so you can look back on what you’ve accomplished, and use data & trends to make progress toward your goal.
Use your Fitbit tracker to record workouts or log them in the app, then see all your exercise stats, their impact on your overall day, and how your performance is improving.
Use the Fitbit app to share a view or a selfie once you’ve reached the peak of your workout. Your pic and stats can be sent to friends and followers on any social channel, or through email and text.

HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR FITBIT EXPERIENCE
Create goals. Most Fitbit trackers allow you to set and adjust daily goal—such as activity, exercise, weight, hydration, food, and sleep targets— at anytime straight from your app [How to set goals]. Your daily progress towards these benchmarks can been seen on your dashboard. With certain devices, you can also set a “main goal”, which programs your tracker to alert you via lights and/or vibrations when you hit it. To see if your device has this capability, click on the “Account” icon in your Fitbit app, choose the device you’re using, click on “Main Goal” and choose one.
Customize your dashboard. The quick-glance tiles on your Fitbit dashboard aren’t set in stone. You can add, delete, edit and rearrange them from your app and fitbit.com so they best support your needs and goals.
Manually log activities. If you currently use a Fitbit One, Zip, Flex, or Charge, which don’t offer SmartTrack, or you’re doing an exercise that doesn’t require steps (indoor cycling, the elliptical) or involves complex, step-based movements (like tennis), manually logging the activity can improve the accuracy of this activity’s contribution to your caloric burn. It’s also a great option on days you forget your tracker at home. Here’s how to use manual tracking, as well as edit or delete automatic entries.
Get competitive. Want to compete against others? Create a group on fitbit.com and add friends. From there you can view the leaderboard to see how you rank against other members and have discussions. If your friends list is feeling thin, don’t worry: Soon you’ll be able to find other like-minded people through in-app groups.
Dive deep into your data. The detail screen you’re brought to when you click on a dashboard tile isn’t static either. For many, you can scroll through the top panel to see more data analysis and even get one-week, one-month, three-month, and one-year averages. You may also be able to click on the day-by-day stats that make up the rest of the screen to further investigate a specific day. This is where you can find information like sleep quality, your longest stationary period, how much time you spent in each heart rate zone, and more.
Share pictures. Have you ever seen someone share on social media cool pictures of their workout or screenshots of their dashboard, badges, or other accomplishments? You can do that, too—and straight from your Fitbit app! Here’s how to share your exercise, stats and accomplishments, Adventure landmarks, challenge results, and badges. Later this month sharing gets even easier with the launch of Fitbit Community.
Improve battery life. How long your tracker’s battery lasts depends on which device you have, your usage and settings, and other factors. Look up your device to learn specific ways that may help extend its battery life.
Set a bedtime reminder. Hopefully you’ve taken advantage of your ability to set a sleep schedule, but how about a bedtime reminder? Scheduling an alert that prompts you to start unwinding 30 minutes before your bedtime target can help you maintain a consistent sleep schedule, which experts say may benefit your health.
Log naps. If your tracker automatically detects sleep (all wrist-based Fitbit trackers do), then any nap you take that lasts longer than an hour will be saved in your sleep history. For anything shorter, you’ll need to manually log your sleep.
Wake up with a silent alarm. A gentler, more partner-friendly way to start the morning actually exists. Learn how to set a silent alarm that wakes you with vibrations, and then discover 13 other ways silent alarms can be helpful—you can set up to eight on every Fitbit tracker except Zip!
Request a weekly progress report. Curious how you’re doing or want to make sure you’re tracking towards your goals? You can opt into getting a weekly summary—that includes weekly totals, daily averages, badges earned, comparisons with friends, and more—within your notifications.
Sync with other apps. Do you ride with Peloton, sweat with Fitstar, stay organized with Amazon Alexa, or train your brain with Lumosity? These apps, and many more, can sync with your Fitbit account for easy data sharing. Take a look at all the apps currently compatible.
