Every Fitbit watch, plus the Google Pixel Watch, comes with a free trial to Fitbit Premium, which unlocks a ton of features like Daily Readiness Score and pro workouts that make them more useful. But if you only want basic tracking to export to another fitness app, or want that subscription money for a personal trainer instead, you may decide you don't need Premium anymore. 

In that case, we'll show you how to cancel Fitbit Premium. 

How to cancel Fitbit Premium on the web

(Image credit: Android Central)

1. Go to Fitbit.com and click on the person icon at the top right of the page.

2. Log in to your account, then click the icon again and select My account.

3. In the left sidebar, click My subscriptions

Here you can click on your plan and cancel it, effective the end of its term. If you are still within your free trial period, you will follow the same steps listed above.

Note that if your free trial has expired, all Fitbit Premium sales are final and non-refundable. So if you signed up for a month-to-month plan, you'd only be out the $9.99 for one month if you missed the cut-off date to cancel before you're charged (as long as you cancel within that first paid month). However, if you signed up for the annual plan, you will be out the entire $79.99.

How to cancel Fitbit Premium in the app

4. Tap on cancel subscription.

If you are still within your free trial period, you will follow the same steps listed above.

Even if you signed up for Fitbit Premium from your Android device, you can still manage or cancel your subscription on the web (opens in new tab) by following the same steps as above.

Premium trials come with new models

The nice thing about buying a Fitbit is that you usually get a six-month period to see if you like it before you have to decide whether to cancel or keep the subscription.

Most of the best Fitbit trackers include the free trial, though the length varies. Some only give you three months, while the Inspire 2 offers a full 12 months; but most, including the new Pixel Watch and Fitbit Sense 2, have a six-month trial. 

That'll give you plenty of time to test Fitbit Premium against other subscriptions, such as Apple Fitness+, so you can make an informed decision.

Our top equipment picks

You may be overwhelmed by Fitbit Premium but still want to stay on the Fitbit app to keep your workout history. If so, we recommend the Fitbit Charge 5 as a great, stylish tracker to keep you working out — and to get another 6 free months of Premium if you want them.

Otherwise, the Pixel Watch is the obvious choice for Fitbit users, since it gives you all the perks of an Android smartwatch but with Fitbit integration and its own free 6-month Premium trial. 

And if you want a new fitness service to replace Premium, try the Map My Run MVP service for a Fitbit Premium alternative at a fraction of the price.
