Totally agree. I got my new one shortly before Christmas as well, and since I sent them a picture of the broken one, they didn't even make me send it back. They told me to keep the base, wristband, and clip as backups - and sent me a whole new Fitbit (and it was an Ultra, when it was a Classic that broke). They rock!

They have the BEST customer service. I had an original one and after 11 months it no longer displayed. It would count but not display. I had a new one in 3 days and it was 2 weeks before Christmas, so I had no down time. I received the new one set it up and sent the only one back. I had a 30 day window. Other companies should take lessons from them, like the airlines. But that's another story...

In order to upgrade the FB you have to place it on the charging station. Not certain if that is what you mean by tethering? I have had to reset mine twice in the two years I have owned it, other than that it has been working fine.
BTW, once you sit the FB on your charging station, look for the icon on the bottom right hand side of your screen and right mouse click on it to open a window that will allow you to select the UPGRADE option. Then just follow the prompts on the screen. I hope this helps! (Otherwise try resetting it as Dianne has suggested.)

Well, this is annoying. Three days after I cracked open the package on my fitbit, the darn thing quit working. I contacted support, who told me that I needed to do a firmware upgrade (I'm running 4.14). However, I can't get my fitbit to tether to my computer. When I press the button on the device, it doesn't respond. Oh, woe is me! Anyone else every have a similar issue? I have a reply in to tech support to see what we can do...
