How to Connect Your Bike to Your Fitbit

To connect through the website, log in to your account and click the Exercise tile > start logging a new exercise > choose Biking from the list. Fill out your activity details and click Save.

To connect through your computer’s Bluetooth, open the Fitbit Connect app on your computer > Settings tile > Advanced Settings > enable inclusion of Bike in exercise shortcuts list > click Apply when done making changes > force sync by clicking Sync Now in the upper-right corner of the main dashboard screen (Fitbit Connect must remain open throughout entire ride).
