Progress you care about
There is a way, however, to change what the status indicators represent. You'll need to log into your Fitbit account on the Web site, and then click on the Settings or "gear" icon in the top-right corner and select the Flex from your connected devices.
Then click on the Device Settings option on the left and change the Daily Goal Progress to reflect the stat that means the most to you. Your choices are:
- Very active minutes
After selecting your category, sync your Fitbit either using the mobile app or via your computer to save the changes to your Flex.
Another setting you'll want to adjust while you're on the site is the Dominant Hand setting. Letting Fitbit know which arm you're wearing the Flex on will result in more accurate tracking of your steps and activity.
You can change this setting just below the Daily Goal Progress section. Again, if you make changes to the dominant hand you'll need to sync your Flex in order for the changes to be saved to the device.
