About this app

Fit Notifications allows you to view all your Android notifications on your Fitbit device. See list of compatible devices.

No special permissions required!

This app supports any Fitbit device that has text notifications capability. The following is a non-exhaustive list:
Fitbit Alta, Alta HR, Charge 2, Blaze, Surge, Ionic, Versa, Versa 2 and any other device supporting text notifications.

Note: Limited compatibility with Fitbit Flex 2 (lights up the LEDs)

POSSIBLE ISSUES (Troubleshooting):

1. Some users have experienced issues receiving notifications when they enable the "Dismiss placeholder notification" setting within this app. If you are experiencing issues with notifications, please try increasing the delay to dismiss placeholder notifications to 5 seconds or more, or try disabling this setting completely.

2. Please make sure that you only choose Fit Notifications for the "Text Notifications" for your Fitbit device via the official Fitbit app. If you accidentally set other types of notifications such as Call or Calendar Notification also using 'Fit Notifications' app, then Fitbit will NOT forward notifications to your device.

3. If you use "do not disturb" mode (also called silent mode) then you will not receive notifications on your Fitbit device as Android disables notification forwarding. To work around this, you have to change the notifications priority for Fit Notifications app. Instructions are provided in the app to fix this.

4. You MAY NOT receive notifications if your Fitbit device has low battery. Please refer to information at the official Fitbit website for your particular device model.

5. You MAY have to restart your phone any time you update the official Fitbit app. Please refer to information at the official Fitbit website for your particular device model.

NOTE: When having issues, always double check if you can receive regular notifications via the Fitbit app before determining that the issue is with the Fit Notifications app. If you do not even receive a phone call or calendar notification, then there may be a configuration issue with the official Fitbit app. Contact Fitbit to troubleshoot this.

Please troubleshoot the app using the instructions and FAQs. These should help you most of the time. If you still have issues, contact me via email.

It details straight-forwatd instructions upon set-up, which is a fast process overall. The app will assist with troubleshooting right off the bat (within the app without having to go through the trouble if contacting support), although it's simple enough for someone not very tech savvy, like myself, & I've never encountered any issues. I've downloaded this repeatedly, whenever I've switched/gotten a new phone (there aren't many apps where I do that), since I've found it so reliable &

Hi Jaimee, Thank you so much for your review! It is very wonderful to hear from users that have benefitted for this app! I am glad that I was able to improve your experience using your Fitbit device and I hope it continues to help you out, although I don't plan to add big new features going forward but just aim to keep this supported. :)

Loved it for two years, till Android 9. This app worked great at giving me notifications from my SMS messages, WeChat, calendar, phone calls, DOT road alerts. But once my phone recent updates to Android, all I get it "unknown" whenever someone calls, don't get SMS messages at all. This really sucks. I know it was Android that caused the problem, but that pretty much broke this app, and made it useless. :(

Fantastic app. When the Fitbit app stopped sending text notifications to my Alta HR after the Android 10 update, I switched to this app. Fitbit has apparently fixed their app (finally), but I'll stick with this one. It allows notifications from multiple messaging apps, which I have grown to like, and it seems more reliable than the Fitbit app.

What's new

+ Updated app to support Android 11 platform, general stability improvements, bug fixes, and UI tweaks.

+ Updated placeholder notification message and added an FAQ entry about placeholder notifications.

+ Implemented a proper dark theme that should look even better under the system-wide dark theme.

Note: If your Fitbit device doesn't vibrate but still receives notifications, then try enabling the "Always Vibrate" setting in the Fitbit app, under the "Notifications" settings for your device.
