- Hello, I'm Garrick Chow. In this course, we're going to get you literally up and running with the activity trackers and apps from Fitbit, the developer of some of the most popular activity and fitness devices on the market today. We'll start with a quick look at the range of Fitbit products and see which ones are best suited for your level of activity. From there, I'll show you how to set up your tracker through both the Fitbit mobile app and the Fitbit Connect desktop app, including specific examples using the Fitbit Flex and the Fitbit Charge HR.
I'll discuss the proper way to wear your tracker for daily use and for exercise and we'll take a thorough look at how to view, manage, and navigate your data through the mobile app and the browser-based dashboard. We'll also look at how to customize your activity goals and how to track other data like your sleep patterns, your heart rate, and your caloric intake. By the end of this short course, you should have a good idea of the capabilities of your Fitbit tracker and how you can use it to get more active and health-conscious on a daily basis. So, let's get started.
