1. Use Your Fitbit as a Stopwatch
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.
