The Fitbit app for Android is supported by over 150 Android devices. For the latest list, see https://www.fitbit.com/devices. To understand how the Fitbit app uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to sync your data, see How do Fitbit trackers sync with Android devices?

You must turn on location services to sync your tracker (Settings > Location). For more information about the latest Google permission requirements, see Google's Android 6.0 Changes document.
