Fitbit won’t pair? How to troubleshoot if your Fitbit won’t pair with your phone or tablet
Your new Fitbit gadget may not link successfully with your smartphone or tablet for various reasons.
Let’s look at several techniques to pinpoint the problem(s) and sort out the kinks:
1. When pairing, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in the vicinity. Turn Bluetooth off momentarily or shut off the gadget if you can’t relocate them. Then go over the steps once more.
2. Suppose you’re having trouble connecting multiple devices to the Fitbit app (using the same Fitbit account credentials). In that case, it’s likely because you’re using a watch that doesn’t enable you to do so. Remove a device from your account or create a new one.
3. Check the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for any app upgrades. If a new version of the app is available, install it before pairing your Fitbit.
4. Before attempting to pair, make sure your Fitbit is connected to its charger.
5. Make sure your phone or tablet’s software is up to date. To check if an update for your phone or tablet is available, go to:
- Tap Settings > General > Software Update on iPhones and iPads.
- Tap Settings > About phone or device> Android Version on Android phones and tablets.
6. Make sure your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth is turned on. If this is the case, turn it off, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
- Tap Settings > Bluetooth on iPhones and iPads.
- Tap Settings > Connections > Bluetooth on an Android phone.
7. Log out and then back into your Fitbit app.
- Tap your account icon or photo at the top of the app’s today display.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Log Out.
- Tap Log in and input your Fitbit account’s username and password on the login screen.
