What You Need to Play Apple Music on Fitbit Versa

Fitbit Versa only supports 2 streaming music services. They are Deezer and Pandora. If you have a subscription to Deezer or Pandora, you can stream them on your Fitbit Versa. For Apple Music users, to give up on Apple Music and register a Pandora or Deezer account seems not an ideal choice since nobody wants to pay for another music streaming service. Luckily, Fitbit Versa also offers a choice for you. It allows you to transfer downloaded music for listening.

With the Music app on your Fitbit watch, you can store and play multiple hours your favorite songs and podcasts right on your wrist. You can store more than 300 songs or podcasts on the watch for listening. You might want to download Apple Music right now. But there is another problem. Apple Music is protected in M4P format and Fitbit Versa does not support M4P. Here are the formats that are supported by Fitbit Versa.

TunesKit Audio Converter: Why Necessary for Versa User?

"We are continuing to explore other music streaming options to further meet the needs of our users outside the U.S. but do not have any details to share at this time. Watch this space!"- from a Fitbit staff in 2017

5 years passed and we haven't seen any progress yet. From my perspective, there's not much possibility that Apple will become Fitbit's partner and let you play Apple Music on Versa since Apple has its own smartwatch business. That's why TunesKit Audio Converter is necessary for you. On the other hand, if you want to listen to some audiobooks while you are jogging or working, TunesKit is also capable of convert iTunes audiobooks and Audible audiobooks to common formats so that you can download them to your Fitbit too. So go get TunesKit and let it be your Fitbit's best mate!
