Fitbit Weather App (Everything There’s to Know!)

I often use the Fitbit Weather app on my Fitbit watch to keep track of the weather conditions for my current location and other cities. The app provides updates for the next few hours and days, which helps me stay informed about the weather. If you are interested in learning how to set up, sync, and give permission for the Weather app and add, remove, and arrange locations in the app, then you can continue reading the guide. Let’s get started!

How to Set Up the App on Your Phone

Setting up the Fitbit Weather is not complicated at all. Follow the six simple steps outlined below:

Step 1: Firstly, open the Fitbit app on your phone and log into your account. If you are logged out, ensure that your Fitbit and phone are paired.

Step 2: Next, tap your profile picture in the top left corner to open your account settings.

Step 3: Select your Fitbit device from the list of devices.

Step 4: On your device’s page, tap to open the Apps option.

Step 5: Scroll through the list of apps to find the weather app, and tap it to open.

Step 6: Open the Settings for the weather app. Under the weather app settings, you can change to the weather unit of measurement you prefer, that is, change from Celsius to Fahrenheit or vice versa.

How to Sync the Fitbit Weather App

Syncing your Fitbit after every change is important because it forces the data on your watch to update. Therefore, with all the changes made in the weather app, don’t forget to sync the Fitbit app with your Fitbit watch.

To sync your Fitbit and update the weather app data, go back to the device page and tap the “Sync Now” button.

The sync steps apply to all Fitbit watches. You can also click the following link for more information on how to sync your Fitbit.

How to Add Cities and Locations in the Weather App (from Fitbit App)

To receive regular updates about the weather conditions of your favorite cities and locations on your Fitbit, you can add them under the weather app settings. To do this, tap the location search bar in the Weather app settings, type in the city or location you want to add, and tap on it. Make sure to save the changes by tapping Done and syncing your Fitbit to display the new locations on your watch.

How to Delete Cities and Locations On the App (from the Fitbit App)

In the weather app settings in the Fitbit app, you will notice a trash icon beside each location that you have added. This icon allows you to remove any location that you no longer wish to see displayed in the weather app. However, it is not possible to delete your current location.

It is important to note that the trash icon only applies to the locations that you have added to the app.

How to Arrange Cities and Locations On Weather App (from the Fitbit App)

Can cities and locations be rearranged in the Weather app? Yes, they can! If you wish to do so, you can rearrange the cities and locations that you have added to the Fitbit Weather app.

To arrange them, simply tap and drag a location, such as your current location, and drop it at the top of your list. Once this is done, your current location will appear as the first option on your Fitbit Watch if you have multiple cities and locations added.

How to Give the App Permission on

If you cannot get the weather app working on your Fitbit, consider checking whether the app has access to your Android or iPhone. This means giving the app permission to access all the information it needs. Below are the step-by-step instructions to do so:

Step 1: Open the Fitbit app and go to your account settings by tapping on your profile icon in the top left corner.

Step 2: Tap on your Fitbit device.

Step 3: Tap on the Gallery tile to open it.

Step 4: Scroll down to find Weather.

Step 5: Tap on the Permission option.

Step 6: Make sure that all the permissions are enabled.

How to Add Weather App Widget (From the Watch)

The Weather app widget is the easiest way you can read weather information on your Fitbit. However, not all Fitbit watches support the addition of weather widgets.

So far, Fitbit watches that support the addition of weather app widgets include Fitbit Versa and Sense Series. To add the Weather app widget on your Fitbit Sense or Versa, follow these steps:

Step 1: Swipe up on your clock face, and you will see your current widgets.

Step 2: Scroll down to find the Manage option and tap to open it.

Step 3: Scroll through the list of your current widgets to find the More Widgets option.

Step 4: Scroll to find and open the Weather App and tap to open it.

Step 5: On the next page, toggle on Show Widget.

Step 6: Next, select whether you want an hourly forecast or a multi-location summary.

Step 7: Scroll down and tap Done to add the Weather app widget and save your widget settings.

Make the App Widget Appear First on the Fitbit Screen (From the Watch)

Stats including heart rate, steps, calories, and more are what you see when you wake up your Fitbit and go to the home screen.

If you would like to see the weather widget first thing when you wake up your Fitbit, consider changing the order of the Weather Widget, you can do it in the following way:

Step 1: Swipe up on the clock face to open your widgets.

Step 2: Find and tap to open the Manage button.

Step 3: Hold the move icon (3 horizontal lines) next to Weather drag it up the list and drop it there.

Step 4: Scroll down and tap Done.

From now on, the weather widget will be the first thing you see when you wake up your Fitbit.

What to Do When the App Doesn’t Show on Your Fitbit

If you are not seeing weather readings for your current location on your Fitbit watch, location services on the Fitbit app may be turned off.

To fix this issue, you should check if your phone has granted the app access to location services. If the app hasn’t been granted access to location services, you can grant it to resolve the issue.

Once the location services are granted for Fitbit, it should start showing weather information for your current location. Follow the steps below to allow Fitbit location services:

Step 1: Go to Settings on your paired phone and tap to open settings.

Step 2: Find and tap the Apps option.

Step 3: Tap the Fitbit app.

Step 4: Tap Location and set it to Always or Allow at All Times.

For better results, allow the Fitbit app access to cellular data and Bluetooth. Also, allow it to refresh in the background as this also aids in displaying updated weather information on your Fitbit Watch.
