If you are seasoned Fitbit owners, you might have known it for a while that Spotify’s “Connect & Control” feature is available on Fitbit since the Versa 2. Currently, this wonderful Spotify music playback feature is supported by Fitbit Versa Family, Fitbit Ionic, and Fitbit Charge 4. If you don’t own any of these smartwatches, you’re out of luck.
Playing Spotify music on Fitbit requires a Spotify Premium account. However, of particular note is the Spotify app for Fitbit can only act as a remote, controlling the Spotify music playing on your phone. There is no offline playback support, so your Fitbit will always need to be connected to the web and near your smartphone to play your tracks. Below we'll be explaining how to download and use Spotify on Fitbit. What’ more, for Fitbit Versa, Versa 2, or Ionic owner, you can also refer to part 2 to get the way of downloading and transferring Spotify songs to Fitbit for offline playback without your phone nearby.
To listen to Spotify music on Fitbit, you’ll obviously need to have the Spotify app installed both on your phone and your Fitbit.
Step 1 Open your Fitbit mobile app and tap your avatar icon on the upper right corner to be taken to your profile.
Step 2 Tap the device you want to download Spotify onto, then select "Apps" > "All Apps", now scroll your way down to find Spotify and tap "Install". During the app installation, make sure to give all the permissions being asked.
Step 3 After installation, you’ll see a Settings menu at the bottom of the Spotify app page on the Fitbit app. Select it and then follow the on-screen instructions to log in to your Spotify Premium account.
Afterward, your phone should confirm you have installed Spotify on your Fitbit. Now, you can sync your app to your watch and then tap on Spotify to start listening to your tunes.
As mentioned above, there is no offline Spotify support on Fitbit devices, so you're not going to be able to play music while you're away from your phone. And most of Fitbit smartwatches also lack the capability of onboard music storage. Thus, this way listed here only works on Fitbit Versa, Versa 2, and Ionic, featuring around 2.5 GB music storage.
