Fitbit Flex 2 was on our list of the best fitness trackers currently available; and for a good reason too, as it truly is a very useful and helpful device. When you set up your Fitbit Flex 2, you will be able to enjoy a wide range of benefits the Fitbit dashboard gives its users, from tracking exercise to logging food and water usage, setting goals, challenging friends and many more. In this article we will talk about the process of setting up and pairing your fitness tracker with your other devices.
Setting up your tracker on your mobile device
When setting up Fitbit Flex 2 on your mobile device, you only have to take a few simple steps. First you need to download the Fitbit app. You can do this by going to the Google Play Store, the Apple App store or the Windows Store, depending on the type of your mobile device. Once you successfully download the app, all that is left is to create or login into an existing Fitbit account. You can then select the device with which you want to pair; when you’re done pairing, all that is left is to check out and explore you Fitbit dashboard. Our suggestion is that before you do anything, you go and check their official website to see if your device is compatible with Fitbit Flex 2, as the tracker doesn’t support all mobile devices, though its compatible with more than 200 Android, iOS, and Windows operating systems.
Setting up your tracker on your PC
For those of you who want to sync your tracker with your PC, the steps are fairly similar as with the example before. The same app that is available for Windows 10 based mobile devices is available for your computer as well. You need to download the Fitbit app from the Windows Store and install it on your PC. The Windows Store requires from you to have an existing Microsoft account before you could download the app. After creating a Microsoft account and downloading the app, you need to create an additional account, this time a Fitbit one, as is the case with mobile devices. Once you have created your Fitbit account, you can open the Fitbit app, go to the app dashboard and pair your desired devices.
Setting up your tracker on your Mac
If you prefer to sync you tracker with your Bluetooth enabled Mac, you need to take the following few steps; Go to the Fitbit official website and click on their setup page and select the appropriate type in accordance with your computer (for example ‘’Download for Mac’’). After this you will be given options either to save or open the file. Choose the latter one. After a few seconds you will be given the option to proceed with the installation. When this is finished, Fitbit requires from you to take only one more step; that is to create or login into your existing account. After this the app gives you the options of selecting a device to pair with, which effectively finishes the process of setting up your tracker.
Tips for using Fitbit Flex 2
Fitbit Flex 2 is a lifesaver when it comes to tracking multiple aspects of you daily routine. But even sometimes a miracle fitness tracker like this can have some hiccups. We want to share with you a few tips that will make you enjoy and appreciate your Fitbit Flex 2 even more. For example, did you know you could edit your exercise details? Well you can, and to a great extent. When on your dashboard, you can tap Categorize Exercise, where you will be able to edit various aspects of a specific workout. For example, you could edit your start and end time, your distance covered and calories burned; all to make your exercise summary more precise. Another thing you could do with your Fitbit app is micromanage all of your stats. You can do this by choosing one stat from your dashboard and holding your finger down. This allows you to see the specific time of day associated with one distinct entry point. This is extremely useful for those of you who want to have complete control and track every segment of your exercise.
