Follow these instructions to put on your Fitbit Alta and secure the wristband. To detach the bands from either side and replace them with a different band, see How do I change the band on my Alta?

  1. Place your Alta around your wrist. The top of the tracker has a charging port and should be on the outside or top of your wrist.

  5. If you’re having trouble fastening the wristband securely, try clasping it a few times before putting it on your wrist. The band may be stiff the first few times you try.

If you move your tracker to a different wrist, make sure you update this information on your Fitbit account. If your step count or distance measurement seems incorrect, consider changing the default stride length. For more information see How accurate are Fitbit trackers?

Wearing a pendant (necklace)

If you have a pendant accessory for Flex 2, make sure it is properly secured:

  1. Insert your tracker into the necklace with the colored LED positioned toward the top of the pendant.

  2. Securely clasp the pendant, making sure you feel it snap into place.

Certain features like automatic sleep tracking and SmartTrack may be disabled when using the pendant necklace. Do not wear the pendant while sleeping or during high-intensity activity.

You can wear the Fitbit One comfortably in or on your pocket or on a bra. The silicone clip will keep it secure.

Always use the silicone holder when clipping One to a bra or waistband; One is not designed to be in close contact with the skin. For this reason, don't wear the One inside your bra.
 

Your Fitbit Zip is designed to be worn close to the body. A shirt pocket, bra, pants pocket, belt, or waistband are all ideal places to wear your Zip.
