What is the Fitbit Ultra?

The Fitbit Ultra tracker is a small clip-on device that shows your real-time activity stats so you know how close you are to your fitness goals. The Ultra's display shows you your stats on the go, and you can sync your tracker up to a free account online at The Ultra contains a 3D motion sensor that senses your motion in three dimensions and to provide your with a highly accurate summary of your daily activities.

What the Fitbit Ultra tracks

  • Steps taken
  • Distance traveled
  • Calories burned
  • Sleep time and quality
  • Recent activity levels
  • Clock and stopwatch

Water Resistance

The Fitbit Ultra tracker should hold up through normal use throughout the day.
The Ultra is not waterproof and should not be worn in water or during activities where it might get wet.

Avoid wearing the Ultra tracker directly against your skin during vigorous workouts. Users who wear the Fitbit on their bra, waistband or any place that comes directly in contact with their skin during strenuous workouts see more display defects than those who put their Fitbits in their pocket during workouts.

Wearing the Fitbit Ultra tracker on a bra or waistband around your home or in the office should not be a problem.
