A word of advice is that you MUST read what devices, (tablets, notebooks, computer, smart phone) it syncs with. This includes operating systems and later models of most Androids and Apple. (Go to www.fitbit.com/devices). You can use a dongle and sync to your computer, but the real beauty of it all is using bluetooth - where it sinks to your phone or tablet.
Often you will miss the fine print so, pay close attention. Can your devices communicate with each other?

I walked up two flights and 1 1/2 miles, burned some calories on new "Just Dance" for X box and learned how to sync up bluetooth to my google tablet, computer and smart phone, which I made sure I had the latest operating system to use the activity tracker without a hitch. Good to consult your family members and friends who may be able to work with you on getting started.
I got the results of last nights sleep. Hours I slept, times awakened, sleep quality-- so precise, and it could have been better report. I woke up 5 times , restless sleep, but slept for almost 8 hours. (Hope tomorrow night is better.)
I charged it up this morning.
Found the online manual too. There's a lot more I'll be adding to my daily routine, like how many calories I've taken in. and it's quite full of informative tips. Who is in a hurry?
