How to Set Alarm on Fitbit (Step-by-step!)

In this guide, I show you how to set an alarm on Fitbit. Depending on the model you own, you can set alarms directly from the watch or use the Fitbit app on your iPhone or Android device.

With Fitbit, you can set up to 8 alarms, but you are unable to name them individually. However, you can choose the specific days of the week that you want the alarm to sound.

Fitbit devices use a Silent Alarm feature that vibrates silently when the designated time is reached, rather than making a sound. This way, the device does not disturb others nearby.

You can utilize the smart wake feature, which determines the optimal time to wake you up without disrupting your deep sleep stage. Additionally, you have the option to disable the alarm if you happen to be on vacation.
