Who knew?

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Who knew getting a new phone and letting it update would screw up my fitbit?? Apparently, though, that is what happened. I got a new phone in August and the update in September. Until September my fitbit was snycing regularly and I had current postings through fitbit. Then, in September, I had spotty updates and at the beginning of October I wasn't getting much at all.
I went to the app store--I have an android phone and used Google playstore--and was reading reviews of the app--really low scores, like 1 star--and several people had the same complaint.
So, I followed fitbit's suggestions and now...............I've had 2 days of current syncings and updates and current postings. What a great feeling. So bummed though that it happened at the beginning of the 5% challenge and so glad that I got a "fix" before the challenge is over.

    I wonder if Fit Bits are accurate. I use an old fashioned pedometer but have friends who use Fit Bits. It seems they get in WAY MORE steps than I do. One day I'm going to go for a walk with a FitBitter and compare the step count.

    Yes, those updates are scary. I need to update to Windows 10 and have been told the best route is to buy a computer with it already installed.

    I have learned updates most often bring trouble. Once had one that messed up my computer so much I had to have it repaired. Glad you are back in sync! emoticon
