Setting up your scale

Before you begin

  1. Set your scale on a hard floor (not carpet) near your internet router to ensure it can detect your Wi-Fi network.

  2. If you have an ethernet cable plugged into your computer, unplug it.

  3. Get your home’s Wi-Fi network password ready since you’ll need to enter it during set up.

Get started

Fitbit’s set up software will enable your scale to connect and sync on your home’s wireless network. You will use this software anytime you move or need to change your scale’s Wi-Fi network in the future.


If you're using a smart phone now, or don't want to download the set up tool, use the web based set up

If you see this, don't panic!

Mac OS X Snow Leopard inaccurately recognizes the Fitbit base station as a "network interface." You don't have to do anything to your Network Preferences, though.

Just click Cancel.
