If you want to get the most out of your activity tracker, you need every single one of these Fitbit hacks.

A Fitbit is a great way to keep track of how many steps you're taking each day, but it can do so much more than that.

And, considering how much you paid for it, don't you want to get your money's worth?

Thanks to MakeUseOf.com, we're here to give you some genius Fitbit hacks that will totally change the way you use yours.

Ready for a great workout?

Here to you go!

1. Use Your Fitbit as a Stopwatch

watch, product, arm, hand, strap,

Clicking the main button on the side of your Fitbit displays the time, followed by your daily statistics.

These include steps taken, current heart rate, distance traveled (in miles), calories burnt, and floors climbed — in that order.

See Tip 8 for options to change this order.

There’s a stopwatch built-in, but it’s not instantly evident.

Just press and hold the main button for a few seconds.

The stopwatch will start.

To stop it, simply repeat the action.

You’ll see your time reading.

Now move on to your Fitbit app.

2. Change Your Default Goal Settings

The Fitbit app (Android, iOS, and Windows) has four tabs.2

It opens in Dashboard, which gives you an overview of your daily step count, sleep cycle, and food and water log.

If you don’t like this default layout, just tap and hold any tile — for instance, “Track exercise”.

You’ll now be able to reshuffle all the tiles and personalize your Dashboard interface.

Tapping any option in this section gives you a breakdown of its results as a list, but it also lets you customize your goals for that section.

So, for example, tap "Steps" to see your daily step count, both present day and in the past.2

As every Fitbit user knows, 10,000 is the default step goal, but if you feel that’s too easy for you, then tap the Settings (cog-shaped) icon to change it.

Similarly, you can also change your goals for daily floor count, distance, and hourly activity goals.
