Being a fitness freak, I put utmost emphasis on my health. “Fitbit” has been of great help in order to keep a track of the various activities such as walking, running, sleeping and more.
Whenever I return from a long walk or jogging, I like to check out the stats via the Fitbit app on my iPhone. Unfortunately, there are times when the data doesn’t sync to my iOS device. Though I feel sad a bit, I am able to resolve the issue by myself.
If Fitbit fails to sync to your iPhone, you need to give these simple tips a try to get rid of the problem. Here you go!
How to Fix the Fitbit Tracker That Doesn’t Sync to iPhone/iPad
Check out your tracker’s battery
Make sure to check out the battery of your tracker. If the power is completely down, it won’t sync to your iPhone.
Force Quit Fitbit app and Open it Again
Double-press the Home button to bring up the multi-tasking. Now, swipe up on the Fitbit app to quit it. Wait for some time and launch the app again.
Turn off/on Bluetooth
Turn off/on Bluetooth a few times and then open the Fitbit app. (Settings>Bluetooth)
Reboot Your iPhone
Press the Home button and sleep/wake button at once for a few seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
Delete Fitbit App and Re-install it
On some occasions, I have been able to resolve the issue just by deleting the app and re-installing it again.
Reset Network Settings
Open Settings app → General → Reset → Reset Network Settings.
It will remove all network settings and return them to factory settings. However, this trick can do the job for you.
Reset Your tracker
If all the above-mentioned solutions haven’t worked out, then you need to reset your tracker. Check out this post to restart your Fitbit tracker.
