Overview of Fitbit

Fitbit is a health and fitness brand known for its wearable tracking devices and companion app. Within the app, users can monitor various metrics like daily steps, heart rate, and sleep patterns. Additionally, they can set wellness goals and even share fitness milestones with friends.

By integrating Fitbit with Runna, you'll have the capacity to seamlessly sync activities captured via Fitbit directly back to the Runna app. Ensuring that your actual performance aligns with your predefined workouts and plan.

Compatible Fitbit Devices

Any Fitbit device with GPS capabilities will be compatible with Runna:

  • Fitbit Ionic

  • Fitbit Versa 3 and up

  • Fitbit Sense

  • Fitbit Charge 4 and up

Pairing with Fitbit

To pair your Runna app with Fitbit, first, head to your Runna Profile and press 'Connected Apps' from the 'Week Overview' screen.


When you turn on the Fitbit toggle you will be prompted to sign in to your Fitbit Account and then asked to accept permissions.


Turn on Fitbit

Press 'Connect to Fitbit'

Enter Fitbit email address and Fitbit password, press 'Sign In'

Ensure 'Allow All' is ticked, then press 'Allow'

Your Fitbit connection should now be turned on

Fitbit Limitations

Since Fitbit is a 'Lifestyle and Activity Tracker' rather than a sports watch, there is no functionality to allow Runna to send your prescribed workouts to a Fitbit watch. This means that you will not receive live and guided coaching during your workouts - you will have to guide yourself based on what you see in the Runna app

That's it! You're now all set up and ready to start seeing data from Fitbit in the Runna App.
