Well, the Fitbit Mobile app for Android is utterly useless as far as I can tell. It won't complete the Bluetooth pairing with my brand new Fitbit One. Yes, I've talked to their customer service. They gave up after having me reboot the One and my phone, uninstall and reinstall Fitbit Mobile and retry. Without that, the Fitbit One is an overpriced pedometer.
Yeah, I've done that with several Bluetooth devices over the years. Fitbit explicitly has their app in control of initiating the pairing. At least one reason for that is that they pass a device ID back to the mother ship that gets associated with your account regardless of what you sync that Fitbit device through in the future. I don't know whether that device ID is the Bluetooth device ID or something specific to Fitbit.
