Why didn't my Fitbit device alert me?

Your Fitbit device vibrates to alert you at various times, including if you set an alarm, when you hit your step goal, or if you haven’t met your hourly activity goal.

If your device didn't alert you:

  • Make sure you successfully set an alarm. For more information, see How do I manage alarms on my Fitbit device?
  • Make sure Do Not Disturb  and Sleep Mode  are turned off on your Fitbit device. For more information, see How do I navigate my Fitbit device?
  • On Fitbit Charge 3 and Fitbit Charge 4, turn on Exercise alerts to receive notifications about your workout in the Exercise app  while do not disturb is on. Open the Settings app  Do Not Disturb  Exercise alerts.
  • On Fitbit Inspire, Fitbit Inspire HR, and Fitbit Inspire 2, make sure that notifications are turned on under quick settings. For more information, see How do I navigate my Fitbit device?
  • If device lock is active on your Fitbit device, make sure you entered your PIN code recently to unlock your device.
  • For health and wellness reminders, make sure your phone is within 30 feet of your Fitbit device.

Note that on Fitbit Versa, Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, and Fitbit Versa 2, alarms don’t alert you if your battery is below 8%.

If you correctly set the alarm or aren’t receiving other alerts, test your device’s vibration motor:
