If you die Fitbit during a workout or do not register an excellent night's sleep, this can be a frustrating experience.
Batteries deteriorate over time, which is an unfortunate fact in the lifestyle of tech enthusiasts. But there are some settings that you can change to squeeze out as much juice as possible from your fitness tracker. Here are some tricks to try.
Switch to a simple watch face
The watch face of a Fitbit can significantly affect its battery: a more demanding screen can remove days from its life.
- Ensure that the Fitbit app has been downloaded and linked to your device
- In the Fitbit app, tap your profile image in the upper left corner
- Tap the icon labeled "Clock Faces". Select "All Clocks."
- From here you can scroll through the dials that Fitbit has to offer. Generally, brighter faces discharge the battery faster. You also want to design with animations or images that use constant Wi-Fi (such as faces If you're not sure where to start, look for something dark and boring ̵
- Click "Select" on the desired watch face You should probably allow it to use the Internet and perform background processes before it is installed.
- Once the face has been downloaded, check the Fitbit screen. It should be there.
To switch back to a previous dial, go back to the "Clock Faces" section of the Fitbit app and select "My Versa 2" (or whatever device you use), where you can see all the dials that you have used in the past smells and you can switch between them.
Having your Fitbit buzz every time you receive a call or text is useful for some users, but not everyone has it required functionality. Turn off the notifications you do not want to extend the battery life of your Fitbit.
- Click the profile icon in the upper left corner of the app
- Select your device and then "Notifications"
- Switch your notification categories to taste
- Select "App notifications" to block notifications from apps that send alerts to your iPhone (such as Messenger or WhatsApp)
Dimming the screen
A clear screen can absorb a lot of energy from a touchscreen Fitbit (such as a Versa, Charge 3 or Ionic).
- On the screen of your device, swipe left until you see & # 39; Settings & # 39; finds. Select that.
- Scroll to "Brightness". Tap that button to scroll through brightness levels. Continue to tap until you tap & # 39; Dim & # 39; ends up.
You can also do this in Quick Settings. Swipe down the Versa or Ionic and tap the icon on the far right (it looks like a set of switch buttons), or press and hold the button on the Charge 3. Tap the button with a sun icon to scroll through the brightness levels.
Turning off Screen Wake
If Screen Wake is turned on, your Fitbit screen is automatically activated when you turn your wrist. This can suck battery power, especially if you throw and run a lot at night.
- In the Fitbit app, click your profile icon in the upper left corner
- Select your device
- Turn off "Quick View"
