  • I am just changing my batteries on my Aria and why do I have to go through this whole tedious process everytime ??????This makes it so aggrivating everytime the batteries go dead. I’m ready to go back to a regular doumb scale that doesn’t require me ever having to go online and going through an endless process of online bullcrap to get it working again!!!!!!!!
    Any suggestions????

    • My sentiments exactly!!! Almost bought a Fitbit Versa. After reading setup instructions, had a major anxiety meltdown. Simplicity PLEASE!

  • All I am trying to do is download set up for my fit bit. I do not need to optimize anything at a cost o 9.99 a month. What the heck is that all about

  • Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve
    over time.

  • To whom it may concern,
    I thought the band would last for a long time and it broke into yesterday and I don’t have money to get a new band, do you have any questions that you might be able to do for me as I am holding band together with two sided tape until I get a new band as you should get extra band if the band ever broke.
