I do not believe that any current Samsung phones support MobileTrack. Take a look at the Fitbit help site for further assistance and information. LZeeW , thanks for stopping by.

LZeeW , thanks for bringing this to my attention. Hope to see you around! Welcome to the Community Forums. Thanks for letting me know that your dad isn't able to setup MobileTrack.
To work on this together, first make sure the Fitbit app is updated on his phone. Then, give a try to the following steps one more time:. If the issue persists, take a screenshot of what is displayed on the Fitbit app after going to the setup a device screen and attach it in your reply so I can take a deeper look. It did briefly but.
Has anyone solved this issue or is it a bug? Or even a mistake on the website that says its compatible. About your inquiry, you should be able to set up MobileTrack in the Fitbit app. Just note that you can 't use this function in addition to a Fitbit tracker.
Meaning that there shouldn't be any tracker or watch paired to your account so the MobileTrack can appear in the set up screen. If you don't have a Fitbit linked in the Fitbit app and you're still having issues to add it, please take a screenshot of what is displayed on the Fitbit app to further investigate. So the websites is not consistent, if this is indeed where you got this text and doesn't explain why I could use it with previous android devices in the galaxy range if your advice is correct. For the record I also unpaired my flex2 I didn't need to do this previously and the option to pair a mobile tracker still doesn't appear.
So unfortunately that hasn't solved My problem, I also cleared my data cache and reinstalled the app a couple of times. It had a layout like an Excel spreadsheet, but had Fitbit's logo and color scheme and was definitely a Fitbit site. I searched with every possible keyword I can think of, but can't find it.
In the past, I made a comment that almost no modern Samsung phones support MobileTrack. That site is where I got my information. I can't see the mobile tracker option under setup a device on an existing acct. But as a new user, Mobile Tracker shows up. So if I forget my Fitbit at home, I have to unlinked it to my account to use mobile tracking?
That makes no sense If this is the case, then I am definitely moving on from Fitbit and getting a Samsung watch, I know that will be compatible with my Samsung phone. I am having the same problem and it's quite frustrating. I recently upgraded from a Samsung galaxy S8 to an S My S8 used to track my steps on my phone app on days when I wasn't wearing my Ionic but I noticed that my S10 wasn't tracking my steps when not wearing my Ionic so I contacted Fitbit, they advised unpairing from MobileTrack and re-pairing but after doing so there's not even a MobileTrack option on the app, I'm not sure of the next step, if any, to solve this, any help would be greatly appreciated.
