The Fitbit device can be programmed to integrate with a compatible mobile device or with a desktop computer. Setup instructions will vary depending upon the Fitbit device. When programming a Fitbit device for the first time, users are guided through setup instructions after selecting the device.
The Fitbit is a wearable fitness tracker that encourages users to make healthy life choices through an interactive dashboard that tracks physical activity, calorie intake, weight and sleep. Various models are available, allowing users to choose between wearing the Fitbit on the wrist like a bracelet or clipping it to clothing such as a pocket or belt. The Fitbit syncs with most modern iPhone and Android smartphones via Bluetooth. It can also sync with a desktop computer via the wireless dongle or with a USB port.
After programming the Fitbit device with personal details such as name, email address and password, the application can be used to add friends through Facebook, join communities of like-minded wellness seekers and to set personal goals such as weight, water intake or calorie intake. Fitbit also manufactures a scale, called the Aria, that syncs with the mobile app through Wi-Fi to help users track their weight more accurately.
