Don’t be mad; Fitbit is down for everyone, not just you

Feb 6, 2023

Calling all fitness readers! If you’re seeing issues with your Fitbit connection or stats, you aren’t alone. Apparently, many users are reporting this problem to the company, complaining that the metrics for today are not available or wrong. It’s unknown at this point how long this will persist.

Fitbit is down for everyone, not just you

The Fitbit issue is across Android and iOS devices. For the main part, there seem to be syncing problems with accounts. What this causes are blank spaces where metrics should be displayed. Strangely enough, you can go back to a previous day and still see the stats for it. 

Even if you try to manually sync Fitbit yourself, it will just return an error saying it’s unable to do so. According to reports, it’s been down for a few hours already. I’m sure the company is already working on the issue, as users will be down its throat to get the matter sorted before their morning exercise.

For those of you who have New Year’s resolutions to train every morning this year, you can still do so without recording your stats for the moment. Remember, it’s easy to fall out of routine, sometimes easier than getting into one. Hopefully, Fitbit will be up and running again soon.

    Fitbit is still around? I thought that crap died long ago when they got rid of their PC syncing program.

    anyone knows if there is at least ONE fitnesstracker/smartwatch out there, that comes with a local app to analyze your trainingdata?

    Are ppl already so sheeped that no one questions, why all the fitnessdata has to be go to the cloud to be able to be analyzed? that is braindead beyond belief. and so are all the ppl that accept that. If a company has tools in the cloud it could also provide them as local app on ypur smartphone or pc. theres is 0 reason that it must be cloud only, but greed for our quite valuable healhdata.
    (for all the farthinkers out there, guess what happens if such data gets int the hand of your health insurance)

    if anyone knows local solutions or hacks – pls post.

    @ghacks: your responsibility would be to show users ways and hacks to avoid our healthdata beeing clouded. but .. “hacks” .. thats long ago, isnt it?

      You may want to take a look at the Gadgetbridge project. It’s an open source alternative app for some of smart bands / watches. No cloud involved (although some devices need to be paired once with first party app to get the auth key).
