How to Identify Your Fitbit Model Easily

Knowing which Fitbit model you have is essential for various reasons, such as setting up your device and troubleshooting errors. Additionally, different Fitbit models offer different features, with some even having smartwatch functionality. So, let's explore some simple methods to identify your Fitbit model.

Finding Your Fitbit Model

There are several straightforward ways to find your Fitbit model number without requiring any technical expertise. Here are a few options:

  • Check the Packaging: Start by examining the package or box your Fitbit came in. In most cases, the model name is clearly mentioned on the box itself.

  • Review Your Purchase History: If you purchased your Fitbit online, check your shopping history on the eCommerce site. The product title should include the name of your Fitbit model.

If these methods don't yield the desired results, don't worry. There are more ways to determine your Fitbit model.

How to Identify Your Fitbit Model

Let's begin with the most effective method:

1. Using the Fitbit App

If your Fitbit device is already connected to your smartphone, you can easily find the model name within the Fitbit app itself.

  1. Open the Fitbit app on your smartphone (available for Android and iOS).
  2. Tap on the profile icon located at the top left corner of the app.
  3. Here, you will find the device connected to your account along with its model name.
  4. If you need the model number instead of the name, simply search for “Fitbit Device Name + Model Number” on Google.

2. Using the Fitbit Device

The previous method only works when your Fitbit is connected to your phone. If your device is not connected, you can check directly on the device itself.

  1. Open your Fitbit device and swipe left to access the apps.
  2. Select the “Settings” app.
  3. Scroll down and choose “About.”
  4. Select “Regulatory info.”
  5. The model number will be displayed at the top. It is a 5-digit code starting with “FB” followed by three random numbers (e.g., FB512).
  6. You can search the model number online to find the corresponding model name.

3. Use Android Fast Pair

When setting up your Fitbit for the first time or after a reset, you may not know the model number. However, if you have an Android phone running Android 8 or above, there is a solution.

  1. Turn on your Fitbit device, and a download icon should appear.
  2. Bring your Fitbit device close to the Android phone.
  3. The phone will prompt you to start the setup process, displaying the model name in the prompt.
  4. Tap on the prompt to download the Fitbit app and initiate the setup process.

4. Check the Fitbit Products Page

If none of the above options work, you can visit the Fitbit products page and compare your device with the models displayed. Although this method may be less reliable, it can still provide a basic idea of your Fitbit model. Alternatively, you can use Google Lens to scan your Fitbit and obtain the model name.

Regardless of the method you choose, you can easily find your Fitbit model, whether it's a smartwatch or a fitness tracker. So go ahead and identify your Fitbit model to make the most of its features!
