How do I earn badges?

Badges reward your step-based activities, floors climbed, and weight goals. Note that while we work on new ways to reward cycling achievements, the distance earned by tracking your bike rides with your Fitbit device doesn't count towards your lifetime distance badges or other step-based badges.

Step and floor badges are only earned while you wear your Fitbit device, meaning manually logged activities do not count towards step badges. Weight goal badges are earned for data automatically transferred from a Fitbit Aria or Fitbit Aria 2 scale and any weights you log manually.

How do I see my badges?

View your badges in the Fitbit app or on your dashboard.  

To view badges in the Fitbit app: 
  1. Tap the Today tab User-added image, and tap your profile picture.
  2. Tap your name > Badges and Trophies.
  3. Tap Badge Collection to see your complete collection of badges, including any weight badges you’ve earned. Note that weight badges don't appear among your Top Badges in the Fitbit app.
On Fitbit Ionic or Fitbit Versa series, check which daily and lifetime badges you’ll unlock next in Fitbit Today:
  1. Swipe up from the clock face on your watch to see Fitbit Today.
  2. Locate the badges tile. You may have to swipe up to find it. If you don’t see the badges tile, tap Settings at the bottom of Fitbit Today and make sure the badges tile is turned on.
  3. Swipe left on the badges tile to see up to 4 of the next daily and lifetime badges you can earn.

How do I make badges visible to others?

You can keep your badges private or share them with your friends. To make your badges visible to others, edit your Fitbit public profile:
  • Fitbit app
    1. Tap the Today tab User-added image, and tab your profile picture. 
    2. Tap Privacy > Badges & Trophies.
    3. Choose whether you want your badges and trophies visible to only you, your friends, or all Fitbit users. You can set the privacy of your weight badges separately.
  • dashboard
    1. From the dashboard, click the gear icon User-added image > Settings > Privacy.
    2. Choose whether you want your badges and trophies visible to only you, your friends, or all Fitbit users.

How do I share badges?

To share your badges, tap the individual badge you want to share and tap the Share button. Choose a group on the Fitbit community where you want to share the post. To choose a different sharing method, tap or click the option to share the post outside of Fitbit.

Why don't manually logged activities count towards badges?

Badges are designed to reward your step-based activities that are recorded while you wear your Fitbit device. Manually logged activities are intended to help you track activities that are based on effort rather than steps or distance, so they do not count towards step badges.
