Track Exercise on FitBit on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, nitid, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video I am going to show you how you can track exercise on the FitBit application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, unlock the phone by pressing the lock button or the home button.
Swipe to the right and enter the Passcode or use the fingerprint scanner.
Find and tap once on the FitBit icon to open up the app.
We need to be signed into FitBit, in which case, there is another video that talks us through how to do that. Once we are signed in, it will take us to the Dashboard where it shows today's information.
Tap on the plus "+" in the top, right-hand corner.
We will be taken to a new screen where our location is identified.
We need to have location access enabled which is demonstrated in another video. We can select which exercise we are doing.
The default setting is "Run," which is indicated by the checkmark in the right-hand side.
We can select "Walk" or "Hike," as well. This example will leave it on the default "Run."
Press "Back" to go back to the TRACK screen.
We can change our "Cues" so that when we are running we can hear someone telling us the "Frequency," pace, and so on.
If we don't want Cues we can disable the bubble by sliding it to the left.
Slide it to the right and it turns green and that means it's enabled.
Tap on "Cues" to select which Cues we like.
Maybe we aren't interested in "Distance" or "Time" so tap on it again to remove the checkmarks.
We may want to select "Calories Burned" and "Split Pace." Tap on which ever ones we like but we have to have at least one selected because we want "Cues."
Press "Back" to return to the previous screen.
We don't need to press save because it saves automatically.
Tap on "Frequency" to choose how often we want to hear the Cues.
The default setting is "1.0 km." Choose between two kilometers, or ten kilometers, or by minutes instead.
Select which one we prefer. This example will keep the default.
Press "Back" to continuing editing Exercise Tracking.
Tap on "Volume" to change between "Low," "Medium," or "High."
This is depending on if we are going to listen to music as well.
"Medium" is recommended but we can choose "High" or "Low" as well. Again, the checkmark moves on the right-hand side to tell us which one we have selected.
We have the option to listen to "Preview Voice Cues." When the Cues play, the option becomes grey.
We can play it again when it becomes blue.
Press "Back" if we are happy with everything.
Now we can make choices about "Music Control."
Slide the option to the right to enable it and turn it green.
We can enable or disable "Shuffle." Select "Last Playing," "All Music," or "Purchased" by tapping on it.
The preferred selection is indicated by the checkmark.
Now press the big, pink "START" bubble when we are warmed up and ready to go.
We can see that it starts the time.
The app will not take pace or kilometers traveled because the demonstrator isn't running. The minutes are ticking and if we were running, the pace and kilometers would be changing as well.
Swipe to the left to get back to the map.
Press "PAUSE" to pause the race, run, hike, or walk.
Otherwise we can swipe to the left to reach the time screen and "PAUSE" the run.
We can hold down the "FINISH" button when we have finished the run.
Because the demonstrator did not partake in an activity the application could not provide accurate information, but if there is movement there should not be any problems.
We can see that it has edited our "calories burned" for today because we told the app that we ran.
This is a VisiHow video and I've just shown you can track exercise on the FitBit application on the iPhone 6.
If you have any questions or comments fell free to add them to the section below and we will do our best to get back to you.
