Whether you are at work or on the move, you always want to receive important call notifications. The Fitbit Charge HR allows you to do just that with Caller ID (Fitbits are not just about counting your steps!).
You can not always hear the ring tone of your mobile phone, especially in a noisy environment. And while you work in the office, your phone is probably quiet so you do not disrupt your focus and workflow (or coworkers).
Want to learn how to see caller ID on your Fitbit Charge HR? The name of your caller scrolls on the Fitbit screen and vibrates gently but distinctly on your wrist. Then you can decide to answer a crucial call or wait later to return to the caller if it is less urgent.
Is your iPhone compatible with Fitbit compatible devices? Check the link provided to see if your phone is listed. Caller ID works only with approved iPhone devices.
Describe the steps to follow to see Caller ID on your Fitbit Charge HR screen
Activate Bluetooth via the Settings icon on your iPhone or via the quick drop-down menu on the Home screen.
Settings> Bluetooth> On activation button; OR
Swipe up at the bottom of your home screen> select the Bluetooth symbol (third from left to top)
Enable phone call notifications
Go to Settings> Notifications> Phone icon> Enable the Allow notifications button
Place your Fitbit Charge HR near your iPhone to complete the setup.
Then, did you download and install the Fitbit app on your iPhone? Otherwise, it would be a good time to do it. I already have it? Carry on.
Open the Fitbit app
Press the “HR Charge” shown at the top of the application dashboard.
Activate the “Call Notifications” button.
When your iPhone initially connects to your Fitbit Charge HR, follow the instructions that seem to connect the two. Make sure you are within the specified distance of 20 feet (6 meters) from the iPhone to Fitbit to receive caller ID notifications.
You should now be able to see the Caller ID on your Fitbit Charge HR screen and feel a vibration on your wrist. Give him a ride and make a test call. Another way to make sure your Fitbit Charge HR tracker is connected to your iPhone is to check the list of connected Bluetooth devices; it should appear.
Once the initial connection and link is established between your Fitbit and your iPhone, to reconnect later, simply turn on Bluetooth on your mobile phone for things to work.
