For tips on wearing your Fitbit tracker, choose your model below. Wrist placement guidelines for Fitbit Blaze™, Fitbit Charge HR™, and Fitbit Surge™ can be found in Heart rate FAQs. Care and cleaning tips are available on our Wear and Care page.

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.

  2. Align both ends of the wristband so they are directly overlapping each other with the clasp over the two holes that best fit your wrist.

  3. Squeeze both the clasp and the wristband between your thumb and forefinger until you feel it snap into place.

You’ll know your Alta wristband is securely fastened if both ends of the wristband are fully inserted.

If you’re having trouble, try securing the wristband off your wrist to get a feel for how it securely clasps and then try again on your wrist. The band may be stiff the first few times you try.

If you decide to wear your tracker on a different hand than the one you chose when setting up your tracker, make sure to adjust your Wrist and Handedness settings. For more information, see How accurate are Fitbit trackers?

To secure your Fitbit Charge™ wristband:

  1. Put on the wristband so the LED display is closest to the outside of your wrist and facing you.
  2. Align both ends of the wristband so they are directly overlapping each other with the clasp over the two holes that best fit your wrist.

Though Fitbit Flex™ is designed to be worn on your wrist, you can remove the tracker from the wristband and carry it in your pocket or put it into a Tory Burch for Fitbit accessory. We do not recommend wearing Flex on your ankle.

Your Flex comes with a large and a small wristband. If you want to use the small wristband, complete the next task before continuing.

Moving the clasp from the large to small wristband

If you choose the small wristband, you’ll need to remove the clasp from the large wristband and put it into the small wristband. To do so:

  1. Push the clasp out with one thumb from the inside of the wristband.
  2. Pull out the clasp.
  3. Insert the clasp into the small wristband by pressing a few times with both thumbs to ensure that the clasp is flat and in line with the wristband.
If there is a bulge on the inside of the band between the two inside prongs of the clasp, find a small object like a credit card to push it flat.

Inserting the tracker into the wristband

Hold the tracker in your hand with the grey arrow facing up. Insert this end into the wristband, with the arrow pointing toward the holes in the wristband.

Securing your wristband

  1. Put on the wristband so the window of lights are closest to the outside of your wrist and facing you.
  2. Align both ends of the wristband so they are directly overlapping each other with the clasp over the two holes that best fit your wrist.
  3. Squeeze both the clasp and the wristband between your thumb and forefinger until you hear a click.

You’ll know your Flex wristband is securely fastened if both ends of the wristband are fully inserted.

 

If you’re having trouble, try securing the wristband off your wrist to get a feel for how it securely clasps and then try again on your wrist.
You can wear the Fitbit One™ comfortably in or on your pocket or on a bra. The silicone clip will keep it secure.

The One is not designed to be worn in direct contact with the skin. Always use the silicone holder when clipping it to a bra or waistband, with the display facing outward. Do not wear the One inside your bra.

Some users may experience skin irritation even when wearing the One as instructed on the bra or waistband. If this occurs we recommend clipping it on your pocket, belt, or other external piece of clothing.

Your Fitbit Zip™ is most accurate when worn on or very close to the body. A shirt pocket, bra, pants pocket, belt, or waistband are all ideal places to wear your Zip. Try out a few different locations to see what is most comfortable and secure for you.
