Review from Hope Larocque
Synced first try.. Yeah.. The app works with my Samsung Rugby Smart phone through Google Play and bluetooth. This is great and will help a lot. I am new to fitbit but so far I love it. No matter what phone you have, this might work for others too.
Stair function doesn't work I like my fit it surge and haven't had issues with the app except for the stair function. Even when I don't climb stairs it adds floors randomly through out the day. One day I did about 4 floors and the app showed 33. Also, it would be nice to be able to delete items from the frequent and recent food lists. Foods I logged a month ago as recent and foods from yesterday don't show up. Foods I ate once show as frequent and foods I eat everyday need to be rescan Ned everyday.
Update compatible phones! I have an LG G4 phone, which even though it is newer, is not compatible with the Alta. Because of this, some features do not work; such as receiving notifications on my Alta that I received a text or call. I also cannot locate any of my friends that have fitbits for challenges. The older versions of LG phones are compatible so PLEASE update the compatibility list! I will give 5 stars when that happens.
Sync not working I have the Fitbit Alta and until this last update everything worked fine. Now, I can't get it to sync. I've tried all the fixes and nothing works. This is getting ridiculous. For the last couple of weeks I've restarted, uninstalled and reinstalled, force stopped, deleted the tracker from the app, turned location and Bluetooth off and on with little to no results. Will you fix this issue? Sooner rather than later please.
Good app *Update: dropped a star as i can no longer amend my exercise time. Sometimes i forget to start my watch at the beginning of a workout so would start it when i remember then i could go on and amend my start time and app would automatically adjust calories.* would think it would be better if under your sleep it showed you your sleep efficiency % rather than having to go on computer. Would also like to easily see max heart rate and min heart rate when I look at my exercises.
Highly recommended I bought a Fitbit to help me monitor what I was and wasn't doing for my health, and it's paid off huge. I use the app all day long and have only loved into the website once (to find out for to edit exercise, which I learned you can do from the app). The only complaint is that there are foods I have scanned and found in the database that I can't find in a manual search... even when searching using the exact description or company description the scan provided. I just keep package UPCs now until I'm done.
Love fitbit but the app is very very basic I Wish the badges could be more adult looking they almost look like somthing out of a childrens cartoon. there is almsot no privacy settings in app, we Should be able to reach them without going to the desktop website.
*You can now update your food plan, weight, and water goals directly from the food, weight or water screens
