If you’re a new owner of a Fitbit device, you may be wondering how to download apps to it. Don’t worry, even seasoned tech persons can be overwhelmed at first. We know that there are a lot of things that you see when swiping on the screen.
If you want to add your favorite app to the ones already in the system, it’s really simple. You can do it in a few minutes.
Not all Fitbit devices support app installation. Try to check the documentation that comes with your own Fitbit device to see if it’s capable of adding more apps.

This is the first thing that you need to do to get started. Depending on your phone, you may need to go to Apple App Store, Google Play Store, or Microsoft Store. Then, make sure to create a Fitbit account when prompted.
