How to pair?
First, please plug in your Fitbit during set-up. Hold the end of the charging cable near the port on the back of the watch until it attaches magnetically. Make sure the pins on the charging cable lock securely with the port. The percent charged appears on the screen.
Just let it charge while we run through the rest of the set-up.

Fall Detection Alert
When a fall is detected by the Fitbit Smart Watch™ (Ionic & Versa), a Google Maps™ link is sent to the Caregiver and all Emergency Contacts immediately letting them know that the user has fallen and where they are located.
Better Alerts Safe Zone can be set to a range of 200, 300, 400 yards or 1 mile from the Clients address. When the Safe Zone is broken an Alert with a Google Maps™ locator is immediately sent to the Caregiver and Emergency Contacts with a live locator following them down the road.
The live map locator will continue to stay on until the Client returns to the predetermined zone. The Safe Zone can also be deactivated in the Client profile.
Better Alerts Medicine Reminders
Once the User or Caregiver easily set up all of the Users Medication Schedule, Better Alerts System will send vibrating reminders to their Fitbit Smart Watch™ (Ionic & Versa) with the medications and descriptions displayed.
Better Alerts Medicine Reminders will be pushed from Better Alerts Website to the Users Smart Phone and Fitbit Smart Watch™ (Ionic & Versa). These reminders can also be sent to the Caregiver and up to 10 Emergency Contacts so they may follow up with the User to make sure they are taking their medications on time.
