​If you aren’t seeing your tracker's data on your dashboard, please do the following:

Verify that your Zip is paired with your Fitbit account.

Log into your Fitbit.com account and click the gear icon in the upper right corner of your dashboard. You should see an icon of your Zip tracker in the drop-down menu.

If you don’t see a Zip tracker icon, then you haven’t paired your Zip to your account. The following articles will show you how to set up your Zip:

Plug your dongle into your computer.

The Dongle is pictured below.

  Make sure your computer is connected to the internet as well.

Confirm that Fitbit Connect recognizes your dongle.

On a PC: Right click on the Fitbit Connect icon in the System Tray. You should see "USB Dongle Connected".
On a Mac: Click on the Fitbit Connect icon in the Toolbar. You should see "USB Dongle Connected".

 

If you see "USB Dongle Disconnected," plug your dongle into a different USB port on your computer.

If at any point you see the following screen, insert your dongle into a different USB port on your computer.

 

Attempt to force sync your Zip. 

Place your Zip near your computer and give it a tap, then open Fitbit Connect and select “Sync Now.” 

Uninstall and reinstall Fitbit Connect.

  1. On a PC: Open Control Panel > Programs and Features > Select "Fitbit Connect" and "Uninstall."
  2. On a Mac: search for "Fitbit Connect" in your Downloads folder. Open the zipped file, then click the Uninstall Icon.
  3. Download the newest software version from www.fitbit.com/start/zip.
  4. After reinstalling the software, please try to force sync.

If you still can’t sync your Zip to your computer, please contact Customer Support.
