Pre-requirements to transfer Music to Versa 2 from a Laptop.

  • Private WiFi: Make sure you are on a private WiFi network. It does not work on public WiFi networks in a coffee shop or other public spaces. Also, make sure that you have connected both the devices to the same WiFi Network.
  • A laptop or mac: You can not transfer the songs or podcasts stored in the mobile phone or tab.
  • Recharge the Fitbit Versa 2 at least 50% to avoid any interruption during the process.
  • Turn Off Bluetooth on the smartphone as it may interfere with the transfer of music and podcasts to Versa 2.
  • Patience: Yes, you must have some patience as it is not easy to add music to Fitbit Versa 2. When I did it the first time, I stuck more than a couple of times during the process. At that time, the Fitbit community was also not helpful for me in fixing the issues encountered.

Once the upload completed, you can pair it with wireless earbuds or headphones directly from your Versa 2 smartwatch.

You can get basic music controls such as Play, Pause, Next, Previous and volume controls on the watch.

So you can easily control the songs with a few tap on your watch. It is very convenient, especially while you workout.
