User manualClick here


This model (AKA Fitbit FB501BKL) can only be bought in fixed colors and sizes, since its wristband is non-replaceable, unlike other models with interchangeable bands, and it nets a 7-day operating time with GPS tracking turned off, 10 hours in GPS mode, and fully charges within two hours. That being said, it layers a Gorilla Glass cover on its monochrome LCD display and banks on a 5-ATM water resistant encasement to protect its innards (The device is not submersible in water despite its ingress protection rating).

Also known as: Fitbit FB501BKL.
