Setting the Fitbit Charge 2 with a mobile device

To set up your tracker, you need to go to the Windows Store and download the Fitbit app from there (you have to register first). When you register and download, there are a few more steps to take and questions to answer before you can connect your tracker with your PC. The whole pairing process is pretty straightforward and takes a little of your time; but in the end you will have a completely synced device which will automatically sync data back and forth from your PC.
Tips for a more effective use of your fitness tracker
For those of you who want to take your Fitbit experience even further, we have got a couple of tips. Our first advice is to constantly watch your steps and activity in real time; you can do this if you have your phone nearby you. This will prevent you from getting the ”stat gap” if your Fitbit goes out of battery. In addition to this, you can recommend the Fitbit app to your friends even if they don’t have a Fitbit device; they could still download the app and use it to rack up stats and compete against you. This will not only entice them to workout, but will give you motivation to workout harder as well. For additional motivation, you can set up voice cues by tapping the stopwatch icon and then going into Cues.
By setting up your Fitbit Charge 2 correctly, you will surely have a productive and effective exercise; and with a few tips and hacks those exercises will be fun and enjoyable.
