Can You Put Music on the Fitbit Sense?

Can you put your own music on the Fitbit Sense? Unfortunately, the answer as of now is no. Let me explain further, as well as provide alternatives to music streaming on your Fitbit Sense.

Why Can’t You Load MP3s Onto Fitbit Sense?

Unlike previous Fitbit models, you cannot load your own MP3s onto the Fitbit Sense watch. This may be disappointing for those looking to have complete control over their music while working out.

However, Fitbit may have restricted this feature to ensure that its users have a seamless and efficient music experience by partnering with the popular music streaming platforms.

Fitbit’s Music Streaming Partners: Deezer, Pandora, and Spotify

While you may not be able to upload your own music, Fitbit decided to provide a range of options for its users through partnering with popular music streaming services such as Deezer, Pandora, and Spotify.

As a Fitbit Sense user myself, here’s how I access music through each of these platforms:

1. **Deezer**: Deezer offers offline music streaming for Fitbit users. Simply connect your Deezer and Fitbit accounts, create playlists through the Deezer app and sync them with your Fitbit Sense. This makes it an ideal option if you want to listen to music without the need for an internet connection.

2. **Pandora**: Pandora is an excellent choice for Fitbit users located in the United States. Users can enjoy listening to their favorite stations and playlists by connecting their Fitbit device with their Pandora account.

3. **Spotify**: Fitbit Sense users with a Spotify Premium account benefit from a seamless music experience during their workouts. However, it’s essential to mention that you cannot store Spotify music directly on your Fitbit Sense, which means that you’ll require an internet connection to stream Spotify playlists.

Possible Future Updates and Improvement

Although it is not possible to load your own MP3s on the Fitbit Sense as of its release, Fitbit does release updates and improvements over time. It may be possible that the company may add this feature in the future or make other improvements for a better music experience.

Final Thoughts

The Fitbit Sense is great for a lot of things, from weight lifting to swimming. While it may initially be disappointing that you can’t upload your own music to the Fitbit Sense, the device compensates with its partnership with Deezer, Pandora, and Spotify.
