Explore the Capabilities of Your Fitbit
Every Fitbit model has a few different features that you should get familiar with. Otherwise, you may be missing out on some really neat options. For example, the Fitbit Ionic comes with a few preset workouts--such as running, weights and cycling--so you can tap on the workout type you're about to start in order to track your moves. But you can add more workout types in the Exercise Shortcuts menu, so feel free to add spinning, golf, yoga, Pilates and more by making edits in the app.
You can do the same with the Charge 2
. Plus, you can set a vibrating alarm if you prefer to be woken up gently instead of hearing a loud, jarring alarm every morning. If you have the Flex 2
, know that it is among the only wearable devices that can track your movements in the pool, so take advantage of this by turning on the swim track feature before you get in the water. Whether you do the backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle or butterfly, the Flex 2
will tell you your pace, distance, calories burnt and more.
The more you familiarize yourself with your Fitbit--taking time to check out and adjust the settings--the more you'll get out of this wearable device. And that's good news for your health!
