  • Plug the wireless USB sync dongle into your computer (this is the smaller USB device–not the charging cable), and bring your tracker near to it to begin pairing.
  • The next step is the tracker pairing. You will see a pairing number that appears on your tracker’s display once your device has been located; enter this number on your computer.

I have entered Vishal, so whenever I take it out of pocket , it either greets me “Bon Jour Vishal” or motivates me by displaying “Stepgeek Vishal” or anything interesting every time I take it out of pocket.
