Why is my Fitbit Showing the Wrong Time and Date?
After you travel to a different time zone or the clocks change for Daylight Savings, you may notice that the time on your Fitbit device is incorrect. This is because your Fitbit device relies on your nearby mobile device to set the correct time.
To fix this, simply sync your Fitbit device with your mobile device. Once synced, your Fitbit device will update to the correct time. If you’re still seeing an incorrect time after syncing, it’s possible that your Fitbit device was not connected to your mobile device during the time change.
In this case, you’ll need to manually set the correct time on your Fitbit device. To do this, open the Fitbit app and tap “Device Settings.” From here, tap “Clock.” Then, use the arrows to set the correct hour and minute. Once you’ve done this, tap “Done” to save your changes.
Now, you can be confident that the time on your Fitbit device is accurate.
