How to Change the Time on a FitBit

A Fitbit offers a lot of great features for keeping track of your health, but there’s one key feature you’ll want to make sure is working properly: the clock. Unfortunately, the time on your Fitbit device may not always be accurate. Do not worry; there is an easy fix to adjust it.

How to change the time on a FitBit

To be clear, you should not be forced to do this. Most of the time, if you go to a different time zone and connect your Fitbit to your phone, it will automatically adjust to the correct time. It also needs to be updated to account for daylight saving time.

However, if the time on your Fitbit is incorrect, fixing the problem is a breeze. Here’s how to go about it on all your devices.

How to change the time from an iPhone and iPad

Because your device is connected to your phone, which already tracks your location and time zone, you don’t need to repeat these procedures very often. However, there are moments when Fitbit malfunctions and stops syncing time – for example, if you suddenly switch between multiple time zones while your phone is turned off.

If you changed time zones and the clock on your device is still inaccurate after syncing, double check the time zone settings. Here are some steps to change your settings:

  1. Open your Fitbit app.
  2. type you profile photo; it is located in the upper left corner.
  3. go to application settings.
  4. You will see a few options; click on Time zone.
  5. Choose the right time.
  6. Start syncing your Fitbit device.

  3. Navigate to application settings.
  4. Disable the Automatic Time Zone institution.
  5. Select the appropriate time zone by tapping Select time zone.

Frequently asked questions about Fitbit

How do I set the correct time on my Fitbit?

The first thing you need to do is sync your Fitbit with your phone. In theory, after doing this, you won’t need to make any other adjustments because your location and time zone will be tracked.

However, there will be instances when your Fitbit’s time falls behind. It is possible that your phone was turned off while you moved time zones and could not transfer the correct information to your device.

If you discover that your Fitbit is out of sync, there are two options to fix the problem. The first step is to reconnect your Fitbit to your smartphone (you can also use a computer or tablet). This may be the fastest way to adjust the clock on your device. If that doesn’t work, try this:

1. Start your Fitbit tracker.

2. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your preferred partner device.

3. Launch the Fitbit app.

4. On the app, tap the Fitbit symbol on your phone.

5. A small menu should appear, reflecting the last time your Fitbit synced.

6. To perform a manual synchronization, select the symbol that looks like two arrows creating a circle.

How do I change the time face on my Fitbit?

If your Fitbit displays a “Clock Error”, you may need to adjust your watch. Follow these steps to customize:

1. Open the Fitbit app on your preferred device and select Today.

2. First select your profile picture, then your device icon.

3. Choose Watch faces and then All watches.

4. Look through the different clocks and choose the one you want to use.

5. Resync your Fitbit to see the difference.

What are the best Fitbit trackers of 2023?

• Fitbit Versa 3

Fitbit Versa has long been the best Fitbit smartphone, but Versa 3 adds some long-requested features and makes everything in the Versa line look a little nicer.

Most importantly, there is increased heart rate monitoring accuracy during vigorous activity. There’s also a built-in GPS (which is also pretty accurate, though not the fastest to link) and the option of an always-on display. The latter one is great news for those of us who were annoyed by the need to flick our wrists to activate the screen on Fitbit’s previous model.

• Fitbit Sense

Fitbit Sense is much nicer than the Versa 3 and has some interesting features like stress tracking and an EKG. However, we expect that most people will find these new features interesting rather than useful. Additionally, the Fitbit Se costs $100 more than the Versa 3.

However, the Sense is now regularly available for less than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, so if you’re curious about the extra capabilities, now is the time to test it out. The Sense’s purchase includes a six-month Fitbit Premium membership, which is a fantastic bonus.

• Fitbit Charge 4

The waterproof and tiny Fitbit Charge 4 is the latest Fitbit and its best fitness band ever, fresh off the assembly line. If you’re looking for a band, it doesn’t get much better than this.

The addition of GPS and Activity Minutes – a monitoring mechanism for more rigorous activity than just taking steps – brings it in line with Garmin’s fitness bands. Fitbit’s app, on the other hand, is remarkably better than Garmin’s, and the Charge 4 is also cheaper than many of its competitor’s bands.

• Fitbit Inspire 2

Aimed at more frequent users, the Inspire 2 makes it easy to register and track progress, even if the activity isn’t tracked as a workout, thanks to the Active Zone Minutes feature.

The Inspire 2 comes with features such as targeted training modes, sleep cycle tools, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, women’s health monitoring, and monitoring of meals and hydration consumption. Plus, you get encouragement right on your wrist every day; the Fitbit Inspire 2 can help you build healthy behaviors.

Fit in your time

Changing the clock on your Fitbit may not seem like an obvious requirement, but there are times when you need to manually adjust your Fitbit wristwatch or activity tracker. It doesn’t matter if it’s Charge or a Versa.

Fitbit devices are incredibly reliable at displaying the time, regardless of whether you’ve reached a new time zone. But that doesn’t mean they are flawless. Follow our guide to fix your Fitbit time issues.
