How does Fitbit Versa sync?

If you’ve been using electronic devices for some time now, you’ve probably heard about the word “sync” or “syncing” by now. Syncing is short for synchronizing and basically means transferring data from one device to another. In the context of your Fitbit Versa, this means transferring the information or data collected by your watch to your Fitbit.com account dashboard, or to your phone or tablet’s Fitbit app dashboard. The dashboard is where you can keep track of the activities that you’ve been doing such as your goals, the amount of hours of sleep, the amount of water and food you’ve taken, challenge friends, etc. In order to sync, your Fitbit Versa has to work with your phone, tablet or phone using Bluetooth. Make sure that Bluetooth function is working on both devices.

If set up properly, your Fitbit Versa data will sync on its own to your phone or tablet’s Fitbit app. There are a couple of settings that you can enable to happen. For best results, you want to keep sync turned on all day.
