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

  • Private Wi-Fi: Make sure you are on a private Wi-Fi network. It does not work on public Wi-Fi networks in a coffee shop or other public spaces. Also, make sure that you have connected both devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • A laptop or mac: You cannot 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.

Supported Music Formats

Not all types of songs or music cannot be transferred to Versa due to file format and copyright issues.

  • Now you will get two options to load music; “Drag and drop or browse.” In my case, this time, I was able to see the songs in the folder. If you are still unable to see the music in the folder, drag and drop your favorite songs into the newly created music playlist.

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 taps on your watch. It is very convenient, especially while you work out.
Additionally, you should also remember that if you use the music feature in Versa 2 app, the battery will drain faster. So always recharge the smartwatch before you go for a workout to increase your smartwatch battery life.
