fitbit.com dashboard or the Fitbit app, only the fitbit.com instructions appear—if you
have the Fitbit app for iOS, Android, or Windows, you can easily find the comparable
task in the app without needing tap-by-tap instructions here. That said, all the details
of our apps are described in our articles at https://help.fitbit.com. Just select Fitbit
Charge HR and then browse the iOS, Android, or Windows categories.
The manual concludes by explaining how to restart your Fitbit Charge HR in the
event you encounter difficulty with your tracker. All other troubleshooting
suggestions, as well as detailed information about how Fitbit trackers and services
work, can be found in the articles on our help site, https://help.fitbit.com. Just select
1
Fitbit Charge HR and then pick from a category to browse, or enter a search term to
find something specific. Do us a favor and rate the articles you read—it’s how we
know we’re getting you the right information at the right time!

Setting up your Fitbit Charge HR
You can set up your Fitbit Charge HR using your computer or the Fitbit apps for iOS,
Android, or Windows.
Setting up your tracker with the Fitbit app
Over 120 mobile devices and Windows 10 PCs and tablets that support Bluetooth 4.0
technology allow you to set up and wirelessly synchronize your Fitbit Charge HR. To
see if your mobile device is compatible with your Fitbit Charge HR, visit
www.fitbit.com/devices. If your device is listed, you can then download our app and
follow the installation process in the app. If your device is not listed, check back
frequently because we’re continually adding new devices.
Even if your mobile device is not compatible for syncing via Bluetooth 4.0, you can
still use a Fitbit app to view your data and track your progress—you’ll just need to set
up and sync your tracker using a Mac or PC.
Setting up your tracker using a Mac or PC and Fitbit
Connect
To set up your Fitbit Charge HR using your computer, you’ll first install Fitbit
Connect. Fitbit Connect is the software application that connects (“pairs”) your Fitbit
Charge HR to your fitbit.com dashboard, where you can view your data, log food,
and more.
Mac & PC requirements

Installing Fitbit Connect and pairing your tracker
1.
Plug your wireless sync dongle into your computer’s USB port and have your
charged tracker nearby.
2. Go to the folder containing the file you downloaded and look for the
installation program:
- For Mac: Install Fitbit Connect.pkg
- For Windows: FitbitConnect_Win.exe
3. Double-click the file name to install Fitbit Connect.
4. Follow the brief onscreen instructions to finish setting up. You’re ready to get
moving.
Syncing wirelessly using your computer
Now that Fitbit Connect is installed, your Fitbit Charge HR will automatically and
wirelessly sync with your computer every 20 minutes or so if the following
requirements are met:
•
•
•
Your Fitbit Charge HR is within 15-20 feet of your computer and has new data
to upload (meaning if you haven’t moved, an automatic sync won’t occur).
Your computer is powered on, awake, and connected to the Internet.
The wireless sync dongle is inserted into a USB port and is recognized by the
computer.
To manually synchronize your Fitbit Charge HR with your dashboard, click the Fitbit
Connect icon on your computer (located near the date and time) and click Sync
Now.

Getting to know your Fitbit Charge HR
Wearing your tracker
Your Fitbit Charge HR should be worn on your wrist. While it may track stats such as
steps and floors when placed in a pocket or backpack, it is most accurate on the
wrist. For all-day wear, your Fitbit Charge HR should usually rest a finger’s width
below your wrist bone and lay flat (as you’d normally wear a watch).
As with all heart-rate tracking technology, whether a chest strap or a wrist-based
sensor, accuracy is affected by personal physiology, location of wear, and type of
movement. In other words, not every person will get a perfectly accurate reading
with every type of exercise. For best heart rate accuracy keep these tips in mind:
1.
Experiment with wearing the tracker higher on your wrist during exercise.
Because blood flow in your arm increases the farther up you go, moving the
tracker up a couple inches can improve the heart rate signal. Also, many
exercises such as spinning cause you to bend your wrist frequently, which is
more likely to interfere with the heart rate signal if the tracker is lower on your
wrist.
2. Do not wear your tracker too tight; a tight band restricts blood flow,
potentially affecting the heart rate signal. That being said, the tracker should
also be slightly tighter (snug but not constricting) during exercise than during
all-day wear.
3. With high-intensity interval training or other activities where your wrist is
moving vigorously and non-rhythmically, the movement may prevent the
sensor from finding an accurate heart rate. Similarly, with exercises such as
weight lifting or rowing, your wrist muscles may flex in such a way that the
band tightens and loosens during exercise. Try relaxing your wrist and staying
still briefly (about 10 seconds), after which you should see an accurate heart
rate reading.
Specifying dominant or non-dominant hand
To improve the accuracy of your Fitbit Charge HR, we ask that you specify whether
you’re wearing it on the wrist of your dominant or non-dominant hand. Your
dominant hand is the hand you use for most day-to-day activities, such as writing or
throwing a ball. You can specify this setting in the Fitbit app or in the fitbit.com
dashboard.
To make this choice using the fitbit.com dashboard:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Log in to fitbit.com.
Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the dashboard.
Click Settings.
Using the navigation tabs on the left, find and specify the correct setting for
Dominant Hand.
5. Sync your Fitbit Charge HR to update your tracker with the new setting.
5
a. Click the Fitbit Connect icon near the date and time on your computer.
b. Make sure your Fitbit Charge HR is nearby and click Sync Now.
Using your Fitbit Charge HR in wet conditions
Your Fitbit Charge HR is splash-proof, rain-proof, and can withstand even the
sweatiest workout. Your Fitbit Charge HR is not designed to be worn swimming. We
also recommend removing your tracker before showering. Though the device can
withstand the water exposure, wearing your tracker 24/7 does not allow your skin to
breathe. After getting your tracker wet, dry it thoroughly before putting it back on.
For more details, see https://www.fitbit.com/productcare.
Using Quick View
With Quick View you can check the time on your Fitbit Charge HR without pressing
the button. Just turn your wrist towards you and the time will appear for a few
seconds.
To turn Quick View on or off:
1.
Log into your fitbit.com dashboard and click the gear icon in the top right
corner of the page.
2. Select Settings > Devices. If your account has multiple trackers, make sure
the Fitbit Charge HR is selected.
3. Turn Quick View on or off.
6
Measuring your heart rate
When your heart beats, your capillaries expand and contract based on blood volume
changes. PurePulse™ LED lights on your Fitbit Charge HR reflect onto the skin to
detect blood volume changes, and finely-tuned algorithms are applied to measure
heart rate automatically and continuously.
Default heart rate zones
Heart rate zones can help you optimize your workout by targeting different training
intensities. Your zones are calculated based on a percentage of your estimated
maximum heart rate. Fitbit calculates your maximum heart rate with the common
formula of 220 minus your age.
To quickly determine what zone you’re in, take a look at the heart icon:
Out of zone
•
•
•
•
Fat burn
Cardio
Peak
When you’re out of zone, which means you’re below 50% of your maximum
heart rate, your heart rate may be elevated but not enough to be considered
exercise.
Fat Burn zone, which means your heart rate is between 50% and 69% of your
maximum, is the low-to-medium intensity exercise zone and may be a good
place to start for those new to exercise. It’s called the Fat Burn zone because a
higher percentage of calories are burned from fat, but the total calorie burn
rate is lower.
Cardio zone, which means your heart rate is between 70% and 84% of your
maximum, is the medium-to-high intensity exercise zone. In this zone you’re
pushing yourself but not straining. For most people this is the exercise zone to
target.
Peak zone, which means your heart rate is 85% of your maximum or higher, is
the high-intensity exercise zone. Peak zone is for short intense sessions that
improve performance and speed.
At any time you can check your dashboard to see the amount of time you’ve spent in
each zone.
Custom heart rate zones
Instead of using the default heart rate zones you can configure a custom zone.
When your heart rate is above or below your custom zone you’ll see an outline of a
heart, and when your heart rate is in your custom zone you’ll see a solid heart.
To set a custom heart rate zone using the fitbit.com dashboard:
1. Log in to fitbit.com.
2. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the dashboard and select
Settings.
7
3. Using the navigation tabs on the left, find Personal Info.
4. Find an option to create a custom heart rate zone and then specify the
minimum and maximum heart rate for your custom zone.
5. Sync your Fitbit Charge HR to update your tracker with the new setting:
a. Click the Fitbit Connect icon located near the date and time on your
computer.
b. With your Fitbit Charge HR nearby, click Sync Now.
At any time you can check your dashboard to see the amount of time you’ve spent in
your custom zone.
For more details about heart rate tracking, including links to relevant American Heart
Association information, see our “Heart rate FAQs” article on https://help.fitbit.com.
Battery life and charging
Your Fitbit Charge HR contains a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery.
With normal use, your fully charged Fitbit Charge HR should last up to five days
before needing a charge. You can check the level of your battery by logging into
fitbit.com and clicking the gear icon on the top-right corner of the page.
When you press the button on your Fitbit Charge HR to cycle through your stats, the
first screen will show a low battery icon if there is approximately one day or less of
battery life remaining.
If you want to receive a mobile notification or email when your battery is low:
1. Log in to your fitbit.com dashboard.
2. Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the page and select Settings.
3. Using the navigation tabs on the left, find Notifications and choose which ones
you would like to receive.
4. Click Save.
8
To charge your Fitbit Charge HR, plug the charging cable into the USB port on your
computer or an AC charging adapter and plug the other end into the port on the
back of the Fitbit Charge HR.
Charging completely takes 1 to 2 hours.
Care instructions
Clean and dry your Fitbit Charge HR regularly, particularly under the band. Use skin
care products sparingly on the areas of the skin covered by your Fitbit product. For
more information about cleaning and caring for the band, see
https://www.fitbit.com/productcare.
We also recommend occasionally cleaning the charging contacts on the back of your
tracker since they may become obstructed by microscopic dirt or debris that
prevents them from making a good connection to the charger. Use a toothpick or
toothbrush to clean the charging contacts; do not scrape them with anything metal
because this may damage the plating and result in corrosion.

sync your tracker.
You can adjust your time zone at www.fitbit.com/user/profile/edit.
Tracking sleep
Your Fitbit Charge HR automatically tracks the hours you sleep and your movement
during the night to help you understand your sleep quality. You don’t need to press
any buttons or otherwise enter a “sleep mode” to begin tracking sleep. Simply wear
your Fitbit Charge HR to bed.
10
To see your sleep data, sync your tracker and then view the fitbit.com dashboard or
Fitbit app. On the dashboard you can look at the sleep tiles or go to Log > Sleep. In
the Fitbit app, tap your sleep tile. If you choose, you can also set a goal for number of
hours slept.
Tracking a daily goal
Your Fitbit Charge HR is designed to track your progress towards a goal that you
define on your fitbit.com dashboard. A progress bar below your goal keeps you
motivated throughout the day. When you reach your goal your Fitbit Charge HR will
vibrate and flash to celebrate.
By default, the daily goal is set to 10,000 steps per day. You can set a daily goal for
steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, or floors climbed.
Changing your goal

11
Tracking exercise
Your Fitbit Charge HR automatically recognizes and records certain exercises for
you. This automatic tracking, known as SmartTrack™, automatically recognizes an
exercise that lasts at least 15 minutes, identifies the type of exercise you’re doing, and
records the exercise. You can lower the SmartTrack detection setting to 10 minutes,
or increase it as high as 90 minutes.
12
Automatically Tracking Exercise
The SmartTrack feature automatically recognizes and records your runs and other
exercise for you, even when you forget. Whenever you wear your Fitbit Charge HR
and participate in any continuous, high-movement activity of 15 minutes or more,
including walking, running, outdoor biking, and elliptical, Fitbit Charge HR detects
your activity and automatically records it for you. When you sync your Fitbit Charge
HR, you’ll see your exercise summary on fitbit.com or in the Fitbit app. You can
adjust your SmartTrack settings to detect exercises and activities anywhere from 1090 minutes.
SmartTrack does not record more precise exercise stats. If you want to track a
specific exercise with precise stats, you should use exercise mode on your Fitbit
Charge HR.
13
Manually Tracking Exercise
As mentioned above, your Fitbit Charge HR automatically tracks several stats and
exercises throughout the day. Using the exercise mode feature, you can choose to
track precise stats for a specific activity as well.
Exercise mode works similar to the trip mode on a car’s odometer. For example, if
you put your tracker in exercise mode and use an elliptical machine, you can view
stats measured for that exercise, such as heart rate and calories burned. When you
end exercise mode and sync your data, you’ll see an entry for a “Workout” exercise
on your dashboard. The entry provides a summary of the activity's stats as well as a
minute-by-minute graph.
