What are Fitbit’s curated music playlists?
We know that playlists aren’t ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to workouts. So, together we created five playlists each for Deezer, Pandora, and Spotify.* All playlists use beats per minute (BPM) ranges to keep you motivated with the music for different types of activity.
Here are a few examples of some of the playlists you’ll find on the music services:
- AZM Workout (builds BPM over time): This playlist builds intensity over time to help you hit your AZM goal.
- Chill Beats (60-100 BPM): Chill, steady songs ideal for yoga or mat classes.
- Find your pace (BPM: 115-120): Ideal for long runs, bike, walking.
- Sync Your Stride (130-145): Ideal for syncing your pace with the rhythm when spinning, or even during power yoga.
- Take It to the Max (150-170): High-intensity music for when you need that extra push. Use it for sprint workouts or HIIT classes.
