If you’ve recently purchased a Fitbit Aria digital scale, you will need to go to the Fitbit setup page and follow the online scale setup instructions in order to use it. This requires a wireless network, and you may need a mobile device (smart phone or tablet) such as an iPhone to setup the scale because the recommended setup software commonly fails to work properly and results in an error message during setup. You may get an error message similar to the one below.
Below are the alternate instructions for setting up your Fitbit Aria scale using a mobile device.
From your mobile device, visit the mobile Fitbit Aria setup page found here:
Then follow the instructions.
Dashboard. Below is a screen shot of how I’ve organized the panels in my online Fitbit Dashboard. I’ve moved to the top, those items that I have the greatest ability to do something about in real-time (what I eat and how active I am). This way, throughout the day, I’m visually reminded of these things and can at any time take positive action and see immediate feedback. Not shown is water intake tracking. That shows up in the iPhone app and elsewhere in the online account.

Summary. If you forget to start the “I’m going to sleep now” mode of the FitBit app on your iPhone, you can enter the sleep time the following day:
- Go to More
- Choose Sleep
- From the sleep screen, press + to add a new sleep session
FitBit will suggest a time that you fell asleep based on when your last activity was the night before. It assumes lots of activity leading up to no activity is the point when you fell asleep.
Determining Wake Time. The FitBit app will assume the current time is your wake time. If you’ve not thought to enter your sleep session until an hour into your day, you may have trouble remembering exactly when you woke up if you didn’t note it at the time. You can create the sleep session and then adjust it online at FitBit.com under the Sleep heading in your Log page. You’ll probably see a normal night of sleeping with a lot of activity toward the end. That’s when you were awake in the morning and walking around. You can trim back the wake time to the point that you first noticed activity in the morning. This will give you a fairly accurate record of your sleep session for the previous night.
