What you need to know

  • Fitbit will soon remove the ability to sync music to devices through the Fitbit Connect app for PCs.

Fitbit devices will soon lose a feature. The Fitbit Connect app for Windows will be deactivated on October 13, 2022. As a result, Fitbit owners will no longer be able to sync downloaded music from their PCs onto their watches. The move pushes people toward paid services, such as Pandora or Deezer, if they want to maintain similar functionality (via 9to5Google).

“On October 13, 2022 we’re removing the option to sync your Fitbit device with the Fitbit Connect app on your computer. Download and use the Fitbit app on your phone to sync your device,” says a Fitbit support page (opens in new tab).
