So I have several choices, not all of which are arm64 based. I also have
an old hp lappy I could put stretch on. And I found a BT dongle but no
clue yet if compatible with the BTLE of the fitbit. More checking to see
if it can pair. But I just now installed the rest of the BT toy's, but
not checked for function yet. Might have to buy another dongle. And/or
find a place to put things in this midden heap. Too many years in the
same house, but its paid off too.
