Using Fitbit Zip
What Fitbit Zip tracks
Zip’s display will show you the following:
•
Steps taken
•
Calories burned
•
Distance traveled
•
A clock
•
The Fitbit Smiley, which highlights
your recent activity level.
When Zip goes to sleep
To conserve battery life, your Zip sleeps during periods of inactivity. Zip will go to
sleep after approximately 20 seconds if no steps are recorded. Once your Zip is
asleep, its display will remain off until moved.
Wearing your Zip
Zip is most accurate when worn on or very close to the body. Ideal places to wear
your Zip include: a shirt pocket, bra, pants pocket, belt or waistband. Try out a few
different locations to see what is most comfortable and secure for you.
A clip that has been designed to keep your tracker clipped to your clothing is
provided with your Zip package.
12
Using your Zip in wet conditions
The Zip is sweat, rain, and splash resistant, but not waterproof. It is not intended to
be worn swimming.
If you accidently wash or get your Zip wet, unlock your tracker’s battery door and
remove the battery. Place your tracker into a bowl of dry rice for 24 hours. This will
extract any moisture that remains inside the device. After your tracker has been in
rice for 24 hours, put a dry battery back into the Zip and lock the door. If the screen
turns on, your Zip should be fine.
Battery life
Your Zip runs on a replaceable 3V coin battery, CR2025. With normal use, your Zip’s
battery should last approximately 4-6 months.
A battery icon will appear on your Zip display when the battery has drained to 25%.
A flashing battery icon indicates that your Zip is very close to being completely
drained. Data could be lost if you do not sync your Zip before replacing the battery.
If your Zip’s battery drains, purchase a new 3V coin battery, CR2025. Use the battery
door tool to unlock the battery door, located on the back of the Zip.
You can check your battery’s level by logging into your Fitbit account and clicking
the gear icon in the upper right corner of your Dashboard. The battery level recorded
during your most recent sync will be listed to the right of the image of your Zip.
Memory
Your Zip stores minute-by-minute data for 7 days. After a week, that data is
converted to a daily total, which is stored for an additional 23 days. When you sync
your Zip, its data is uploaded to your Fitbit.com Dashboard, and securely stored on
Fitbit’s servers. As long as you sync your Zip within thirty days of activity, you will be
able to transmit that data to your Fitbit.com Dashboard.
Every night at midnight, your Zip will reset itself. This means that your goal progress
and daily data will begin at zero again. This does not delete the data stored on your
tracker; that data will be uploaded to your Fitbit.com Dashboard the next time you
sync your Zip. The time this reset occurs is based on the time zone set in the
Personal Settings area of your Fitbit.com profile.
