It is now possible to locate your smartphone with the Fitbit fitness tracker. All you have to do is just swipe down on the watch face and select the Find Phone feature. When you click the button, the phone will play a ringtone and you can easily find it.

Location limits

However, there are some limitations: An Internet connection is not enough. The tracker must be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth for the function to work. As a result, you shouldn’t be too far off. In addition, this type of location only works when your mobile phone is on.

Although the feature may be useful, some users are not very happy with the update. Several users report in Community forum problems and higher energy consumption. However, it is not clear if this is related to the location function.
