The question is, I can not find the the version of firmware updated from the program.

I just be hit by the low battery notice, So I replace the battery CR2025.

The latest firmware version of Fitbit Zip is 5.86 for now.



Water Proof Fitbit Zip

Fitbit Zip is not just a water proof activity tracker. Yesterday, it is proved itself that it can also survive after 30 minutes warm-water washing and 50 minutes drying. I forgot to take it out from my jean pocket before I put it in laundry room.

This is the picture I took today. It is clean and smelled like fresh air.



The back of tracker has a cover with rubber O-ring.  That is way it is water proof.

Fitbit Zip tracker lost syncing?

Fitbit syncing support more devices now

I use Fitbit almost one year. I need a USB device to synchronize data it collect. The USB device should work with PC and its program, Fitbit connect.

Now Fitbit syncing support more devices.

Including iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, iPod Touch 5, iPad Mini, etc.

Most important news for me is that it is supporting Nexus 7 (2013) now.


It means I don’t have to turn on my PC and sit beside it to wait the data synchronizing.  I can play my favorite games,Jewel Mania, Fragger, Candy Crush, or Angry Birds, the data syncing is done without further action.
