Although there is consistent request of Spotify integration for the Fitbit Ionic device, we never heard any response from Fitbit for when the native Fitbit Ionic Spotify app will finally come. Currently, to listen to Spotify music on Fitbit Ionic or Versa, the popular way is to pair the phone with Fitbit smartwatch through Bluetooth. But in this way, it's inconvenient as we have to bring the mobile phone whenever we are working out. There must be a way to play Spotify songs on Fitbit Ionic offline, isn't it?

Yes, the best method is to rip mp3 from Spotify, then upload Spotify music into Fitbit Ionic or Versa for offline playback. This post is going to show you an efficient solution to download Spotify music to MP3 and sync Spotify music tracks to Fitbit Ionic or Versa so that you can listen to Spotify music tracks on Fitbit devices offline, even without the native Fitbit Spotify app.

Spotify to Fitbit Ionic: What Tool You'll Need

In order to play Spotify on Fitbit Ionic or Versa, you should add the Spotify tracks into the device firstly. But here comes the problem. You may notice that it's impossible to sync Spotify music to Fitbit directly even if you have already downloaded the audio files offline with Premium account. In fact, that's simply because Spotify uses DRM technology to protect the streaming music content.

In result, Spotify songs can only be played within the app itself. Since Fitbit doesn't support Spotify integration, you won't be able to directly stream Spotify to Fitbit. To solve that problem, TunesKit Spotify Music Converter is a good choice for removing format limitation from Spotify and convert Spotify contents to Fitbit Ionic/Versa supported audio format. After that, you'll be able to transfer Spotify music files to Fitbit and play them offline later.
