Don’t Know Which Fitbit You Have?
If you’re like most people, you probably have more than one Fitbit device. And if you’re like me, sometimes you can’t remember which one is which – especially when they all look so similar!
In this article, I’ll show you how to tell which Fitbit device you have, no matter which model it is.
What Is A Fitbit?
A Fitbit is an activity tracker device that helps you track your fitness and activity level. There are many different models of Fitbit, each with its unique features.
Notable Features Of Fitbits
Each Fitbit has a unique design, although they all share some common features. For example, most Fitbits have a display screen, buttons, and sensors.
The display screens on Fitbits vary in size and type. Some have color displays while others are black-and-white. The buttons on Fitbits also vary in number and function.
The sensors on Fitbits can include a heart rate sensor, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope.
Each Fitbit has different features and functions. Some common features include the ability to track your steps, distance, calories burned, and active minutes.
Some Fitbits also can track your sleep, monitor your heart rate, and even provide guidance on how to improve your fitness level.
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a Fitbit is compatibility. Not all Fitbits work with all devices. For example, some Fitbits only work with iPhones while others work with both iPhones and Android phones.
Fitbit’s also vary in price, depending on the features and functionality they offer. Some Fitbits are less expensive than others.
Heart rate monitoring
The heart rate monitoring on most Fitbits is accurate, but there are a few slight discrepancies between different models. The Charge HR and the Surge are the most accurate, while the Flex and the One can be a little less reliable.
If you’re looking for the most accurate heart rate monitoring possible, go for one of those two models.
The Fitbit Surge and the Fitbit Charge 2 both have built-in GPS tracking, which is a great feature if you’re looking to use your Fitbit for running or other outdoor activities.
The Flex and the One don’t have GPS tracking, so if that’s something you’re interested in, you’ll need to go for one of the other two models.
All Fitbits do a great job of tracking your sleep, but the Charge 2 and the Surge have a few extra features that the Flex and the One don’t have.
The Charge 2 has a “silent alarm” feature that vibrates to wake you up without disturbing your partner, and the Surge has a “sleep timer” feature that lets you set how long you want to sleep.
If you’re looking for the best sleep tracking possible, either of those two models would be a good choice.
The Charge 2, the Surge, and the Blaze all can show smartphone notifications on their display screens.
This is a great feature if you want to be able to see who’s calling or texting you without having to pull out your phone.
If you’re not interested in smartphone notifications, any of the other Fitbits would be a good choice.
Different Models Of Fitbit
Now that you know some of the key features to look for in a Fitbit, let’s take a look at some of the different models available.
The Fitbit Zip is one of the most basic models available. It tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned but doesn’t have any other fancy features.
It’s also one of the least expensive Fitbits, making it a good choice if you’re on a budget.
The Fitbit Flex is another basic model, but it has a few more features than the Zip. In addition to tracking your steps, distance, and calories burned, it also tracks your sleep and has a silent alarm.
It’s a bit more expensive than the Zip but still relatively affordable.
The Fitbit Charge is one of the most popular models. It tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and active minutes, as well as your sleep and heart rate.
It also has smartphone notifications and is compatible with both iPhones and Android phones.
Fitbit Charge 2
The Fitbit Charge 2 is an upgraded version of the Charge. In addition to all the features of the original Charge, it also has built-in GPS tracking and a few new exercise tracking features.
It’s one of the more expensive Fitbits, but if you’re looking for a fitness tracker with all the bells and whistles, the Charge 2 is a great choice.
The Fitbit Surge is Fitbit’s top-of-the-line model. It has all the features of the Charge 2, plus a few extras like music control and a built-in stopwatch.
It’s also one of the most expensive Fitbits, but if you’re serious about fitness and want all the features that Fitbit has to offer, the Surge is a great choice.
Ways To Tell What Fitbit You Have
Now that you know some of the key features to look for in a Fitbit and some of the different models available, let’s take a look at some of the ways you can tell which Fitbit you have.
Check The Model Number
The easiest way to tell which Fitbit you have is to check the model number.
The model number is usually printed on the back of the device or on the packaging.
If you’re not sure where to find it, you can also look in the Fitbit app under the “Help” section.
Check The Features
Another way to tell which Fitbit you have is to check the features.
As we mentioned before, some of the key features to look for include GPS tracking, sleep tracking, and smartphone notifications.
If your Fitbit has all of those features, then it’s likely a Charge 2 or a Surge.
If it doesn’t have GPS tracking but does have sleep tracking and smartphone notifications, then it’s likely a Charge or a Flex.
And if it doesn’t have any of those features, then it’s likely a Zip.
Check The Price
Another way to tell which Fitbit you have is to check the price.
The Zip is the least expensive model, followed by the Flex, Charge, and Surge.
So if you paid a very low price for your Fitbit, it’s likely a Zip.
If you paid a mid-range price, it’s likely a Flex or Charge.
And if you paid a high price, it’s likely a Surge.
Check The Warranty
Finally, another way to tell which Fitbit you have is to check the warranty.
Fitbit offers a one-year warranty for all of its devices, so if your device is still under warranty, it’s likely a newer model.
For example, the Zip was released in 2013 and is no longer under warranty.
The Flex was released in 2014 and is also no longer under warranty.
In conclusion, there are several ways to tell which Fitbit I have. The model number is usually printed on the back of the tracker or on the box it came in. You can also check the Fitbit app or website to see which tracker is associated with your account. If you still can’t tell, contact Fitbit customer support for help.
Now that you know how to tell which Fitbit I have, you can choose the right one for your needs and start tracking your fitness goals!
