Fitbit’s trackers are the first all day activity trackers to offer Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity, so you see your stats in real-time.
Syncing occurs automatically any time Zip™ is within about 20 feet of the wireless sync dongle and is relatively motionless. The dongle plugs into your Mac or PC's USB port. Syncing and uploading require use of the Fitbit uploader application.
Syncing Zip™ to your smartphone or tablet requires Bluetooth Low Energy. This allows your Zip to sync wirelessly and automatically with a wide range of leading iOS and Android Smartphones.

If your phone does not support Bluetooth Low Energy, you're still in luck. The Fitbit mobile app works with all smartphones for logging data, receiving notifications, and viewing graphs and charts based on your last sync.
We recommend syncing your data regularly. As long as Zip™ has minimum battery power, it tracks up to seven days of detailed, minute-by-minute data. For the preceding 23 days, it summarizes your daily calories, distance and steps taken.
The battery inside Zip™ lasts four to six months. It has a low battery indicator on the LCD screen. To change your battery, use the battery door tool to unlock and open the door. Remove the battery, place the new battery into the cavity, and close the door.
