Fitbit Versa 2 in hand

Fitbit is losing one of its oldest features for Mac and PC this fall

What you need to know

  • Fitbit has confirmed that it’s ending support for PC and Mac syncing.
  • The change will take effect on October 13, after which the Connect app will be discontinued.
  • Music transfers from computers will no longer be possible for owners of legacy Fitbit devices.

Fitbit Connect has been a handy companion app for Fitbit users who prefer syncing their fitness trackers to a computer, but its demand seems to be dwindling as Fitbit has confirmed that the app is going away.

Fitbit announced via a support page (opens in new tab) that it will shutter the Connect app on October 13 (via 9to5Google (opens in new tab)). This will affect legacy Fitbit devices, such as the Versa 2 or Ionic, which still rely on the app to transfer data from your wearable to a computer.
