I'm using Windows on my work computer. I think you're probably right, it could be the system here. It's an old computer and it does get balky on me. I call it "Sluggo!" I keep doing the set up and get the same result. I'll try my home computer but it's so convenient to sit here at work and track my fitness!

Well,funny you should ask! The tork part is a play on torque and the wench is a play on wrench. My brother has forever told me when I get irritated about something, "Don't get torqued, wench!" In time it became a nick name that has not gone away with the years. The 13 is just my favorite number.That's all there is to it! emoticon

LOL @ Paul!

Linda, what computer system are you using? Windows or Apple or ?
The .zip files should be downloading but the problem may be with your computer system....

Ok, I get the Linda part....but where did you come up with TorkWench? And why not 12 vs 13?

(just trying to create a distraction since the FB isn't working)

Thank you Rockman6797! I tried again this morning and I've done all the steps correctly, but I do not get the screen that has the zip files in it. I just keep getting the no internet connection sign. I have a request for help in with Fitbit as of yesterday afternoon, so I'll wait to see if they answer back soon.

thanks, linda

If you are able to download the software then you are connected to the internet.
I am sure that you have followed the set-up instructions but here is a link that shows the step by step process. You might consider reviewing it.

If your FB is still not syncing then please get in contact with FB's Customer Service. Here is the link to do that:

Let us know if you are successful or if you continue to have syncing issues.

Hi All!

Thanks for your welcoming and encouraging words! I still haven't synced my fitbit one because I don't seem to be able to get my account set-up. Here's the problem: I plug everything in as directed and then Idownload the program. But the message in the window says that it can't find an internet connection. I don't get it! Has anyone else had this problem?

If the Fitbit One is as easy as the Zip to set up,it shouldn't take much :) Probably one of the easier things I've ever set up through online

Welcome. once you set up the program and you connect it with SP, you will see your information come in through the fitness section



Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Hello! I'm linda and I just got my Fitbit One. I have not yet set up the program, so I'm not syncing right now. I'll figure it out! In the meantime, I'm doing my walks and watching what I eat.
