How Is a Fitbit Set up on a Computer?

To set up a FitBit on a computer, install the Fitbit Connect software, set up an account, and log in. Next, connect your tracker to your computer to view and log your data.

FitBit Connect software is compatible with both PC and Mac computers. On a PC, the file will download as a .exe file, and on a Mac computer, it will download as a .dmg file. After downloading the file, click on the file icon, and follow any prompts to complete installation.

To set up a new account or add a Fitbit tracker to an existing account, click on Set Up A New Fitbit Device. Fill in your personal information along with which tracker you are using. With the tracker nearby, plug the USB wireless dongle into your computer to allow for proper pairing of the device. Follow any instructions to complete the set-up process. Wait to receive a notification that the device has properly connected to your Fitbit account.

Sync your FitBit data to your computer at least once a week in order to receive an accurate seven-day, minute-to-minute data log. You can check when your Fitbit account was last synced by clicking on the gear icon located at the top right corner of the Fitbit dashboard.
