How To Customize Your Fitbit Settings – in 4 easy steps!

Today we’re going to talk about how to customize your Fitbit settings to fit your goals. When you first set up your Fitbit, the defaults are in place. You can use those to reach your goals.

Fitbit Has a New Stat – it will keep you moving all day!

Fitbit has a new stat. Have you seen it?
