Sync Fitbit Flex 2 with Android
Syncing your tracker data to your Fitbit account
You have set up and started using Flex, you'll need to make sure it regularly transfers (syncs) its data to Fitbit so you can track your progress, see your exercise history, earn badges, analyze your sleep logs, and more on your Fitbit dashboard.
The Fitbit apps use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to sync with your Fitbit tracker. Each time you open the app it will sync if the tracker is nearby, and the app will also sync periodically throughout the day if you have the all-day sync setting enabled. If you’re running the Fitbit app on a Windows 10 PC that doesn’t have Bluetooth, you’ll need to make sure the tracker is connected to the computer.
Fitbit Connect on a Mac also uses Bluetooth for syncing (if available), otherwise you’ll need to make sure your wireless sync dongle is plugged into the computer.
You can force Fitbit Connect to sync at any time or it will happen automatically every 15 minutes if:
• The tracker is within 20 feet of your computer.
• The computer is powered on, awake, and connected to the Internet.
Anytime you open the Fitbit app it will initiate a sync. You can also turn on the All-Day sync option which will allow your tracker to sync to the Fitbit app periodically through out the day. Fair warning, the All-Day sync option can cause your phone and tracker battery to drain more quickly.
Can I make a sync happen manually?
You sure can. Inside the Fitbit app you can tap the Sync Now button to initiate a sync anytime you want.
My tracker won't sync, what do I do?
If you find that your tracker won't sync to your app there are a few things you can try to try and get rolling again. The list below goes from the simplest fixes to the more drastic measures.
Make sure your tracker's battery is charged. If your tracker is dead it won't be able to sync with your phone. Close the Fitbit app and then open it again. Every time you open the app it should initiate a sync. Turn off Bluetooth, then on again, and then open the Fitbit app. This will temporarily stop the Bluetooth connection which will force it to reconnect and could help the problem. Try turning your iPhone off and on again. This old faithful trick can sometimes snap your phone back to reality and fix mysterious problems. Uninstall and re-install the Fitbit app.
This could be especially crucial if you have recently updated the Fitbit app and that's why you started having problems. Try resetting your tracker. This is an option for dire circumstances but in some cases can certainly help re-establish any connection issues. Restarting your tracker is different for every model and take take several minutes to complete.
