Fitbit Ionic — Need To Use ‘Fitbit.com’ Rather Than Mobile APP For All The Data!

On an Android mobile. Does NOT give me an ELEVATION graph.


With ‘fitbit.com’ — logged into MY Fitbit account.


I did my first GPS-enabled run with the Fitbit Ionic that I got on Friday, February 2, 2018.

When I completed the run, it gave me a whole slew of data, right on the watch — more than I used to see with my Garmin Vivocative 3. 464′ of elevation was one of them — and I was GLAD. Tracking elevation is a MUST for I because elevation, and carrying 11 pounds of extra weight, is a feature of my runs.

But, when I checked the Fitbit APP on my Google Pixel 2 and 10″ ASUS Zenpad NO ELEVATION. Neither could I get to it on the watch. I was bummed. Then, much later on in the evening I invoked “fitbit.com” — because I was going to do a search on ‘elevation’. Saw that the dashboard was well populated now that I had been wearing the Ionic for a few days. Clicked on the ‘Exercise‘ tile and BINGO the elevation graph. I was so happy.

But seems DAFT that the APP does not display it. Of course, you can call up fitbit.com on you mobile.

Continues to confirm that Fitbit is no Garmin. The APP is very feature poor.

Teischan’s (11) Latest Painting Project — A Table For Her Hamster Cage.

She has embellished it further. Click here to see.


She found this table, for free, at our local “Swap Shop“. It was covered in a cheap, stick-on veneer. She stripped the veneer off and set about painting it. It is meant to be for a hamster cage.

She is working on a large — v. LARGE — wall mural in her room, using the same paint. She is building up quite the collection of paint. Had to get her more yesterday. Seems to be taking her ‘Teischan‘ quite seriously.
