PDF manuals for Fitbit smart watches and fitness tracker
Overview of Fitbit
Fitbit, Inc. – an American corporation, a manufacturer of consumer electronics and wearable devices for fitness and health with the eponymous brand. The main product line of the company includes bracelets – fitness trackers, as well as smart Wi-Fi scales. Headquartered in San Francisco, California.
A characteristic feature of the products is the availability of wireless modules that allow you to synchronize the device through a laptop or smartphone with a cloud. Thanks to this, the physical activity of the user of Fitbit devices is available to his friends, and can also be obtained and analyzed on various devices (application on a smartphone, web browser) with access to the Internet.
Among the products of the company are mainly fitness trackers, most of which are made in the form of a bracelet or smart watch. In addition, the company offers the consumer a Fitbit Aria balance that synchronizes weight and fat tissue with the Fitbit server via Wi-Fi.
Fitbit Charge HR
From its predecessor – Fitbit Charge – this model is distinguished by the presence of an integrated light sensor of the heartbeat and an improved design of the bracelet fastener. The pulse meter added to the product a sleep tracker function.
Fitbit announced a new tracker called Fitbit Blaze on CES in January 2015. Blaze was the company’s first fitness tracker with a color touch screen and is positioned as a “smart watch.” The model is mainly aimed at people involved in sports, but Fitbit also offers replacement belts made of leather and metal. In this case, the tracker also includes such functionality as synchronization of alerts from the smartphone about calls, text messages and events in the calendar. Blaze uses the so-called connected GPS, that is, it receives data about the geographic location of the user through a Bluetooth connection with a GPS-equipped smartphone.
Product prices started from $ 200 for the version with a standard silicone strap, the version with a leather bracelet at the time of launch was higher by $ 70, and with a metal bracelet – by $ 100.
Fitbit Charge 2
This is the successor to the “classic” tracker of Fitbit Charge HR. The new tracker, which is released in September 2016, is equipped with a GPS-module, as well as an improved heartbeat sensor, which allows you to determine the maximum amount of oxygen per weight.
The Relax function will allow you to perform breathing exercises, and the enlarged display in comparison with the predecessor will display more information at the same time. The management of the tracker, at the same time, remains the same: one hardware button on the side of the case.
The first non-insignificant product of the company is Fitbit Aria, which is a scales with built-in Wi-Fi module. Scales allow for personalized weighing of up to 5 users.
In February 2016, one of the researchers at Google Project Zero, Tavis Ormandi, discovered a vulnerability in the scales that could lead to a spoof of Fitbit synchronization servers by an attacker on their own.
A series of fitness trackers with removable bracelets, such as Blaze and Alta, allowed the company to switch to the model of selling “elite” and multi-colored bracelets after selling the devices themselves and to receive additional profit.
