Do you have Fitbit Scale Problems? Listen and learn as the Tech Woes IT Fitbit pros expertly demonstrate how to overcome Fitbit scale problems.
Fitbit Scale Problems
can be quite annoying. My beef is the way it kills batteries. Frequently, I walk into the bathroom and see my Fitbit scale repeating “step off,” with nobody near it. Sometimes it stops on its own, and other times I have to remove the batteries, to make it stop. In fact, the only way to keep it from randomly throwing a step off hissy fit is to leave the batteries out when I’m not using it. To be sure, that approach is not popular with my wife. Consequently, I keep a supply of AA batteries handy.
Following is a transcript
of a person with Fitbit scale problems and a creatively unhelpful tech support person. As is my policy, I have changed the names to protect the guilty. Any resemblance to real life situations is purely coincidental. Or is it? Perhaps, it is a little bit of both. I hope you enjoy my goofy attempt at geek humor. I welcome you to express your opinions and share your frustrating experiences in the comments below. If you enjoyed this post, please feel free to share it with others. Thank you for stopping by.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: It eats batteries like popcorn.

Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Tell me more.
Unhelpful tech support guy: Put new batteries in your scale and weigh yourself.
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: And then?
Unhelpful tech support guy: Wait five years, put new batteries in the scale, and weigh yourself again.
Unsuspecting tech woes victim: Thank you so much. You make it so easy.
Unhelpful tech support guy: Thank you for the kind words and for calling technical support, where a stupid answer is only a phone call away.
