Fitbit App Gallery allows you to personalize your device with the apps and clock faces that best reflect your personal needs and aesthetic. But as soon as you setup your Fitbit Ionic or Fitbit Versa, you’ll also have access to pre-loaded apps from Fitbit—like Exercise, Fitbit Coach, Relax, and Timer—as well as popular apps designed to boost motivation and convenience. Below, a little more info on the leading Fitbit watch partner apps you can look forward to using.
4 Fitbit Watch Apps Available Out of the Box
Few things improve a workout as much as good music, but who wants to exercise while carrying their smartphone? By partnering with Pandora, the most listened-to audio streaming service in the US with 71 million monthly active listeners, Fitbit makes it easy for US-based Ionic and Versa users to leave their phone at home and take their favorite music with them.
After pairing your Fitbit account with your Pandora account using the Fitbit app, Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium users (paid subscription required; US only) can use the Pandora app to sync their favorite stations or choose from Pandora-curated workout stations and download them directly to their Ionic or Versa. Save this link to Fitbit’s Motivation Mixtape for when you’re ready to get started.
Not in the US? Keep your favorite songs on your Fitbit smartwatch with Deezer, a global music streaming company. The Deezer app for Fitbit OS lets you hear new song recommendations mixed in with tunes from your library via FLOW, your personalized continuous soundtrack. Choose a playlist, skip forward, or go back to a previous song right from your wrist. A Deezer paid subscription is required, which is available free to Fitbit smartwatch users for three months*.
Strava is the leading social network for millions of athletes at all levels and has been working with Fitbit since 2015, when two-way data sharing was enabled. The Strava app on Ionic and Versa continues this shared mission by providing athletes with advanced tools, including Matched Runs, a feature that allows you to benchmark yourself against past performances on your most common routes—right from your wrist.
Just set up a free Strava account and then connect your Fitbit and Strava accounts in the Fitbit mobile app. After you sign into Strava in the Fitbit mobile app, you’ll be able to use the Strava app including Matched Runs. And if you want to get even more analytics and motivation, go to here to get a 60-day free trial of Strava Premium.
Leave your phone and your wallet in your bag—you can now pay for your favorite Starbucks beverage straight from your Fitbit smartwatch (US, Canada, and UK only). After setting up your Versa or Ionic, load a Starbucks card in the Fitbit mobile app by entering the 16-digit number on your Starbucks card and then sync your watch. Once your card is loaded onto your device, you’ll be able purchase items at Starbucks by scanning the barcode on your smartwatch at the register.
To check your balance, reload your card, or start earning rewards, go to starbucks.com/card and register your card.
Weather, powered by global leader AccuWeather
When you’re as active as Fitbit device users are, checking the weather isn’t a once-a-day activity. There’s the early-morning inquiry when you’re trying to figure out what to wear to work, the pre-workout weather check to ensure you dress appropriately, and sometimes even the mid-workout review to make sure you have time for one more interval before the rain comes down.
That’s why Fitbit smartwatches features a weather app, powered by AccuWeather, a source of superior accuracy and the most complete global, real-time, and historical forecast data. After setting up your Ionic, you’ll see the weather for your current GPS location and will also have the ability to set two customized locations, taking the guesswork out of planning your workout, commute, or weekend activities. AccuWeather also works on Versa. Just set your location in the Fitbit app; the forecast on Versa will update anytime it’s synced with the Fitbit app.
More Apps Coming Soon
The Fitbit Watch App Gallery will continue to expand with more popular apps across a variety of categories, like health & fitness, news, lifestyle & entertainment, travel and more, plus new clock faces created by the Fitbit developer community.
