Verdict: What you can't do with Spotify on Fitbit

Like with other versions of the Spotify app, available on the Apple Watch, Wear OS and more, there still exist some obvious limitations to what the app can do.

1. No offline playback

With the Spotify app on Fitbit, you are not allowed to listen to Spotify music while you're away from your phone – meaning that Spotify music cannot be played on the watch alone. Meanwhile, your paired phone or tablet must remain nearby in Bluetooth range of your watch, with the Fitbit app running in the background and connected to the internet.

2. Subscription limitation

Unlike Spotify support on the other devices, you will need a Premium account for the playback of Spotify music on Fitbit with the help of the features in the Fitbit version of the app. If you are a Spotify member with a free account, you won't be able to link your account after installing the app on Fitbit.

However, once you have ViWizard Spotify Music Converter installed, you're able to make use of its power, such as downloading the offline Spotify music, playing Spotify music without the phone or listening to Spotify music on Fitbit offline. No matter you desire to download Spotify playlist to Fitbit versa for offline listening or only listen to Spotify music on Fitbit with Free subscription, everything is easy with ViWizard.
