Fitbit started out in 2009 and has since grown to create its own ecosystem, providing complete activity tracking through its trackers and wellness-enhancing technologies.

How to connect fitbit with compatible iPhone?

To replace an outdated Fitbit device or add a new one to your account,

  1. Before you start the setup procedure, make sure your Fitbit device is connected to the charger.
  2. A notification alerts you to the start of the setup procedure when you pair certain Fitbit devices with Android phones. To set up your device, tap the notification and adhere to the on-screen directions. The notification directs you to the Google Play Store to download the Fitbit app if you don’t already have it.
  3. You can use one of the following links to download and install the Fitbit app:
  4. After launching the Fitbit app, select Sign in with Google.
  5. Select “Proceed as a new user.”
  6. Select a Google Account. Click Create account if you don’t already have one.
  7. To register and link (or “pair”) your Fitbit device with your phone, follow the on-screen directions. By pairing, you ensure that your phone and Fitbit can talk to each other and transfer data.

After you set up your account:

  • All other Fitbit users can see your profile picture, last initial, and first name.
  • Your Fitbit pals can see your “About me” details and the day you joined.
  • Although you can change your sharing options, by default your average daily step count is visible to your Fitbit friends and other members of groups you join. Although you can choose to share additional information, the majority of the data you enter when creating an account is kept private by default.

Troubleshooting – fitbit not syncing with compatible iPhone


Try these solutions if you’re having problems pairing your Fitbit with your iPhone:

  1. Verify that the two devices are charged. A minimum of 20% battery life is needed for some Fitbit devices in order to connect and sync. If your Fitbit and iPhone aren’t connecting, it’s a good idea to make sure they’re both charged.
  2. Give both devices a restart. Occasionally, simply turning it off and on again solves the problem. Try restarting both your Fitbit and your iPhone to see if it resolves the problem. (You can either press and hold the Fitbit button for ten seconds until the Fitbit logo appears on your screen to restart it. If not, go to Settings and select Restart.)
  3. Look for updates for the software. Occasionally, sync problems can be caused by out-of-date software on your iPhone or Fitbit. See if applying the latest updates to both devices resolves the connectivity problem.
  4. Cut off the Fitbit and iPhone’s Bluetooth connection. Launch the Fitbit app, select Account, then press on your gadget. Press the [Fitbit name] to remove it. Next, select Bluetooth from the iPhone’s Settings and hit the (i) icon next to your Fitbit. On your iPhone, tap Forget This Device to delete it.
  5. Reconnect your iPhone and Fitbit. Use the procedures listed above to link your Fitbit and iPhone after you’ve charged, restarted, updated, and disconnected the Bluetooth connection.

We advise getting in touch with Fitbit customer service via their website if your Fitbit still won’t connect to your iPhone.

User reviews: fitbit compatible with iPhone

Easy biometrics at your fingertips

Honestly I love Fitbit and have since I was in college. It was recommended to us by a professor of mine in the athletics department and I adore it. I am a volleyball player and I always have my Fitbit on. The app has been a tremendous help through the years and actually helped save my life twice when my heart rate was notably out of control and though I had been feeling very sick, it wasn’t until I saw that that I told my husband to get me to the hospital. Saved me from going into septic shock so that was cool. The app has also helped me with tracking calories, weight goals, periods, fertility, sleep, and more. The app actually helped us get pregnant with our first child (I have PCOS and was having a difficult time but the app really helped me figure out timing and consult a physician about the trends). What I’m saying is, I would recommend the Fitbit app and best Fitbit watches over pretty much every other product I have seen that is similar. Yes, even the A***e Watch and whatever new thing G****e has come out with. Best bang for your buck and there are a lot of apps that link up with the Fitbit app (and products) to improve your experience and help you meet your goals. I’m not paid by Fitbit to say this stuff but hey, if you’re out there reading this Fitbit, I’m just saying that I wouldn’t be sad about a job offer (jk. Mostly. Maybe.) Thanks for coming to my Ted talk
