The fitbit is fully charged, the display does work (I see motivation words and if I hold and press the button I can start and stop the timer) and the unit syncs and detects my activity. I just don't see the flower or any info on the device. Any ideas?
Has anyone lost the wristband that came with the fitbit ultra that allowed you to velcro it around your arm when you sleep? If so, how have you tracked your sleep after the fact? Did you find a replacement?
Hi everyone, I had recently gotten my mom a Fitbit Ultra for Mother's Day and we're having trouble setting it up on her Macbook Air. 1. Clicking "Next" on the personal information screen does nothing. 2. Even after that works, I am aware that it will ask her to plug the Fitbit on its base into her computer, which is a problem since it has no USB port. Is there a fix for problem 1 and a workaround for problem 2? Thanks.
I was wondering what people's experiences were with the Fitbit at the gym? I'm wondering because I generally spend an hour a day on the elliptical, and was curious as to how the Fitbit counts that. Does it count it just as steps, or does the motion of the elliptical make the altimeter think you are climbing some stairs? What other behaviors have you noticed while at the gym?
I can tell from the comparison that the Ultra is actually for feature packed, but this thing looks better & I lost my Fitbit because of the clip form factor. I'd be much less likely to lose a bracelet. Anyone have experience with both? Also, the lack of Android app for Fuel is holding me back right now.
I really want to be able to log my Fitbit stuff on the go. So far you can do a little bit from their mobile website, but the App looks awesome.
Unfortunately I live in Denmark so any link to the App is worthless.
Come on Fitbit, get it international.
(Next is the fact that you need it to be translated. But thats a whole other can of worms)
Dumb question, but I take it the altimeter which tells you the equivalent number of stairs you've climbed won't records things like using an elevator or flights etc., right?
I asked this question jokingly on Twitter the other day, but I'm curious as to whether anybody has any real answers.
Why do neither the Fitbit or Jawbone Up ship outside the US/Canada? What is it about the technology (if it is the technology that's the problem) that makes it so difficult? All I can guess is that it's the wireless radios that might cause a holdup in international availability.
(It's worth noting that since I posted this question, the Jawbone Up has become available in Apple Stores...
With a ton of similar products on the market do you think the MotoActv is priced right or is too high? There are devices like the FitBit that are pedometers on steroids but then there are devices like the Nike+ Watch that are more in line with the Actv. Depending on your activity level I guess will dictate how much you want out of one of these devices but I just feel at $250 it's a bit too high, I think if they came in right at $200 they'd be more reasonable.
I keep my charger base for my fitbit ultra at work. It makes the most sense because I am at my desk 5 days a week when at home I may not use my PC daily. However as the weekend gets closer, I am curious if I can go two days without syncing.
Does anyone know how many days data the fitbit ultra can hold?
