Fitbit Now Available on Windows Phone Platform

Fitbit Windows Post 1

We’ve got some awesome news to share for Windows phone owners. Today we launched a free, native Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1.

Windows fans, we’ve heard you loud and clear and we’re proud that Fitbit is the first to offer mobile fitness syncing to the Windows Phone platform. If you’re a Windows Phone 8.1 user, you now have instant access to up-to-date stats from any Fitbit tracker. The new Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 also features Live Tiles – Microsoft’s Start screen app experience that provides up-to-date content and notifications at a glance – so you can track your steps and to your daily goals, all without opening the Fitbit app.

In addition to real-time stat syncing, you can also quickly log fitness and nutrition data and set or manage personal goals directly from the app. All the Fitbit app staples are included: notifications, achievement badges and leaderboards, letting you cheer, taunt and direct message friends within the app for a little friendly competition.

Here is the full list of features of the new Windows app:


  • Real-time stats: Automatic and wireless syncing for all Fitbit activity and sleep trackers through Bluetooth 4.0
  • Fitbit on your Start screen: Pin the Fitbit Live Tile to your Start screen and quickly view your step count
  • Stay on track: Real-time and historical stats in easy-to-understand graphs, to help track progress and set goals
  • Log more than activity: Recently enhanced food database of more than 350,000 foods with accurate nutritional data for faster, better food-logging and calorie coaching
  • Get motivated: Fitbit’s motivational social tools like notifications and badges, to help reach target goals
  • Stay social: Ability to challenge friends and family with leaderboards, direct messages, cheers and taunts


We’re very happy to support the top three leading mobile platforms with direct sync, so now you can choose the device you want to use with your Fitbit product.

Windows Phone 8.1 users can find the free Fitbit app in the Windows Phone Store now.

    • Hi Deborah. Thanks for letting us know and welcome to the Fitbit family! It’s possible that your phone has not been tested with our app which could be the reason why it’s not syncing. However, it won’t hurt to try some troubleshooting tips. Check out this Fitbit help article for help with syncing. Also make sure you’re on the latest Fitbit app version. If you are still having issues, please reach out to us via our other support channels so we can take a closer look.

  • Hi, I have a Samsung Ativ S with Windows Phone 8.1, I have downloaded the fitbit app, when run it, not appears the fitbit blaze (I want to buy it), It’s compatible? Thanks in advance

  • I was just wondering when if ever Fitbit will be supporting notifications from texts and calls on the Windows platform. That was one of the reasons I went with the Fitbit and was disappointed to find out notifications did not work with the windows phones.


    • We appreciate your interest in notifications for Windows 10, Doc! At this time, notifications are not supported by Windows 10. To learn more about the status of this feature for Windows 10, check out this Community post submitted by one of our awesome Community moderators, Lena!

  • I have a microsoft windows 10 phone.
    I want more than just steps and food diary. Does fitbit have notifications such as missed calls, and build in GPS now? About a year ago I turned in my band 2 because of damage and was notified you got out of fitness wearables. I had to return 3 different fitbits cause they weren’t compatible. Instructions said compatible, but only limited. What am I supposed to use now? Help
