You can now get so much more from your Fitbit experience with Premium. Turn the stats on your wrist into personalized health and fitness insights, inspiration, and guidance: Leveraging over a decade of Fitbit data and expertise, Premium is a paid membership that goes above and beyond the Fitbit app features that you know and love to help you move more, sleep better, eat well, and stress less.
Premium reveals patterns and delivers actionable insights to help you access deeper health metrics, hundreds of workouts and meditations, new challenges and games, and more. So how can you make the most of your new Fitbit Premium membership? Keep reading to find out.
The Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app helps you track metrics like your breathing rate, resting heart rate, heart rate variability, oxygen saturation (SpO2), and even skin temperature—important information that can help you uncover trends and changes to your well-being.
While all Fitbit users get educational insights in the Fitbit app, Premium makes them personal. Premium personalized insights surface trends in your unique Fitbit stats to show you when you’re on the right track with healthy behaviors and give you a gentle nudge when there’s an opportunity to improve. They also help connect the dots between different things you’re tracking —for example, showing you how the quality of your sleep improves when you have a more active day.
Advanced Sleep Features
It’s time to step up your sleep game with Premium’s advanced sleep features. You can do so with the sleep programs and personalized sleep insights mentioned above, plus a more thorough analysis of your stats with a comprehensive Sleep Score breakdown.
Sleep Score breakdown: With Premium, you can get a deeper analysis of your free daily Sleep Score—with a breakdown showing how it was calculated based on your time asleep, deep and REM sleep stages, and how restorative your sleep was. Learn more about Sleep Score here.
Sleep Restoration: Premium also gives you an all-new visualization of your sleeping heart rate plotted against your average daytime resting heart rate. The more time your sleeping HR is below your daytime resting HR, the more restorative your sleep is. As you tweak your nighttime routine, keep an eye out for changes in this graph to see how your body reacts.
Get proactive about your health and wellness with your Premium Wellness Report and share an analysis of your Fitbit activity ranging from sleep, heart rate, and weight trend data (depending on which device you use and the data you share) with your healthcare professional, personal trainer or nutritionist so you can have a more informed conversation.²
Video and Audio Workouts
Mix up your fitness routine with hundreds of workout options not only from Fitbit, but other popular fitness brands like Daily Burn, Barre3, Down Dog, POPSUGAR, and more. Whether you want to burn calories, tone up, strengthen your heart or relieve stress, find a workout that fits your goals and suits your mood. You can work out with the Fitbit app anytime, anywhere.
Follow step-by-step programs to help you build healthier habits—from sleep to nutrition to exercise—that last a few weeks and keep you accountable with check-ins and reminders. Or follow guided workout plans to help you build strength in different areas.
If you want to nail the basics of activity, nutrition, and sleep . . .

If you’ve ever found yourself thoughtlessly checking off tasks on your to-do list at work, or looking back on the events of a day as if they’ve passed by in a blur, you’re certainly not alone. The first step to bringing more awareness into your day is—you guessed it—drawing attention to it. That means treating even the smallest tasks as mindful ones can make a huge difference. In fact, did you know that a single introductory “mindfulness session” (i.e. meditation) can help reduce anxiety levels? Seems like some pretty good incentive to get your Zen on, if you ask us.
That’s where Fitbit’s Premium Mindfulness Tools come in, which you can learn more about here.
Games and Challenges
