Fitbit scales

Trouble setting up your scale?

1. Fitbit Account & App

To begin, you must have a Fitbit Account and the most recent version of the Fitbit app. If you are creating a new Fitbit account, don’t forget to open the confirmation email from Fitbit and confirm your account.

2. Setup Scale on Fitbit App

Select the icon in the top-left corner of Fitbit’s app, select “+ Set up a Device”, find your scale and follow Fitbit's steps. Weigh yourself. If you have the “Air” scale, remember to be on the “Today” screen in Fitbit’s app when doing so.

3. Permissions

In the Digbi app scale setup process, you will be asked to login to your Fitbit account. Once you login, you will be taken to a permissions page, where you will need to share “All” of your Fitbit data with Digbi Health.

4. Send Weight to the Digbi App!

For us to verify that your scale is connected, we need to receive your weight from Fitbit (it can take 2-3 minutes for your weight to send). Please reweigh yourself if your weight doesn’t update in the weight-bubble in the Digbi app.

Stuck on this Fitbit screen trying to connect your scale?

If you have an Aria 2 scale (not the Air scale), put your phone into airplane mode. Then on your phone, turn your wifi and bluetooth back on and load this page again.

Weight not updating in your Fitbit weight log?

Goto Login, and delete your most recent weight from the weight page. Step on your scale again. Fitbit should begin receiving your weights again.

Kits & Samples

How long will it take for my kits to arrive?

Your kits should arrive within 2 weeks, and after you submit your samples, it may take another 4-6 weeks for you to get your results back.

How does my spit become a report?

From your spit we get samples of your DNA, or your genes - a roadmap of your biology that you were born with. Your DNA encodes everything from how tall you are, to your eye color and hair curl, to whether beer tastes bitter to you or whether you think your pee smells funny after you eat asparagus (fun fact, but everyone’s pee smells after eating asparagus, but only some folks can smell it). We curate the latest in wellness and genetics research to produce a report about what your genes say about your health, body, and wellness.

How does my stool become a report?

Millions of different kinds of bacteria live in your gut. We sample your stool to get a snapshot of what kinds specifically inhabit you. We then collaborate with uBiome, a leader in gut microbiome analysis, and curate the latest in wellness and microbiome research to produce a report about what your stool says about your health.

Do I have to get my blood drawn?

No, but providing us with updated blood marker results will allow us to tailor the best nutrition plan for your biology.


Will my insurance cover the program?

Possibly. If you are insured with Blue Cross Blue Shield in the state of California, and are either interested in losing weight or looking for help managing diabetes, you may qualify. Reach out to for more details.

Can I use Digbi Health instead of a doctor?

While Digbi Health plans and recommendations are based on strong, curated research, it cannot replace the care of your licensed physician. However, we have partnered with several healthcare professionals. Please reach out to if you would like to take part in a medically supervised weight loss or diabetes management program.

How secure is my data?

We have a number of methods to keep your information safe. These include securely monitored and HIPAA compliant websites, encrypted hard drives, and limiting the number of people with access to your data.
