Although there are 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, this post is going to show you an efficient solution to sync Spotify music tracks to Fitbit Ionic/Versa so that you can listen to the Spotify audio 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 music on Fitbit Ionic, you should add the Spotify tracks into the device firstly. But here comes the problem. You may noticed that it's impossible to sync the Spotify songs to Fitbit even if you already downloaded the files offline with Premium account. Why is that?

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 Ionic doesn't support Spotify integration, you won't be able to directly stream Spotify to Fitbit.

To solve that problem, a 3rd-party Spotify music tool will be needed. TunesKit Spotify Music Converter is such a smart solution that will remove DRM from Spotify and convert Spotify playlists to MP3 which is supported by Fitbit Ionic/Versa. After that, you'll be able to transfer the DRM-free Spotify songs to Fitbit and play them offline later.
