Easy Ways to Find your Fitbit If you Lost it
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to connect with each other and exchange data. Fitbit uses Bluetooth technology in order for you to connect it with a Phone or a Tablet.
So, if your Fitbit was synced or connected with your phone then the Bluetooth on it must be turned on. In this scenario, you can use different apps that can help you locate your Fitbit. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Using Find My Fitbit:
Find My Fitbit uses the Bluetooth signal to help you locate your device. The app works by detecting the strength of the signal, if you’re within five feet of your Fitbit, it will show as “hot.“
Otherwise, it will give you an estimate of how far away you are. You can also use the app to see a list of all the nearby Fitbits, which can be helpful if you’ve lost yours in a crowded place.
The best part is that you don’t need to have the app installed on your Fitbit in order for it to work, as long as the device is turned on and within 100 feet, you should be able to find it using this handy little app.
Here’s how you can use it:
- First of all, open Find My Fitbit and follow the on-screen instructions to set up the app.
- After that, select your Fitbit device from the available list.
- Walk around in your area until the indicator changes from Cold to Warmer.
- If the indicator changes to Warmer then keep on moving in the same direction until the indicator turns Hot.
Using Tile App:
Tile is another app that can be used to locate your Fitbit in case you have lost it somewhere. However, there is a condition for this app to work. It is necessary for you to install it on your Fitbit as well as your phone. If you have already installed it on both of your devices then proceed further with the process.
First of all, open the Tile app on your phone and select the Find option. After that, your phone will display the location, and if your Fitbit is nearby, it will start vibrating.
If in case, the Fitbit is not in range then the Tile app will show your Fitbit’s location history along with the date and time of the last sync.
Common Places To Find Your Fitbit:
Fitbits are small, fitness trackers that people use to monitor their activity levels and sleep patterns. They are typically worn on the wrist, but can also be clipped to clothing.
Because they are small and easily lost, Fitbits often end up in common places like laundry baskets. They can also be left in the car or bathroom. While these may seem like the most likely places to find a Fitbit, people have also reported finding them in the freezer, in plants, and even in the garbage. Be sure to check all of these common places.
