Stay motivated and improve your health by tracking your activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep


Fitbit empowers and inspires you to lead a healthier, more active life. We design health and fitness products and experiences that fit seamlessly into your life — because achieving your goals comes from what you do every day. We give you the insights and encouragement to make smart choices, to see how small everyday changes add up to big results.

Who We Are:

Fitbit is the market leader in the fast-growing category of connected health and fitness products, an exciting business that combines cutting-edge tracking devices with motivating online and mobile experiences to help people reach their health & fitness goals. 

Fitbit’s product line includes a number of tracking devices that measure everyday activity -- such as daily steps, heart rate, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed and even how long and well you sleep – to encourage you to be more active. We also make the Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale and are working aggressively on new products. All of our products wirelessly and automatically sync your data with Fitbit’s online and mobile dashboard, which keeps you motivated through charts and graphs, badges, motivating competitions with friends and family, and fun notifications of your progress.
