Customer Question

I bought my 76 year old wife a Vivofit for Christmas. I too am 76. We are not techies. I thought she could strap it on and start counting her steps. We've tried to figure out how to start the thing for two months and we're nowhere. What should we do?

Hello, my name is Rusty. The Vivofit is meant to pair with your smart phone and computer. Notice it came with an "ANT STICK" that has a USB port. That is for plugging into your computer, and it communicates with the bracelet.

Have you plugged that into your computer yet? Do you have a smart phone? I'll show you what to do.
