In April 2023, Google announced that Fitbit users would eventually need to migrate their accounts to a Google account. As it currently stands, this isn't required, as Google stated that you will still be able to use your Fitbit account if you want. However, the "grace period" is said to end sometime in 2025, before Google will no longer support Fitbit accounts.

When migrating your account, it's a pretty simple and straightforward process. But Google has also taken the extra steps to ensure that any data that you don't want to be shared with Google, won't. This includes things such as your health metrics, connected apps, and more. With that being said, here's how you can migrate your Fitbit account to your Google account.

2. Tap the Today tab in the bottom toolbar.

It was only a matter of time

The writing has been on the wall for quite a while, but this just really feels like the beginning of the end of the Fitbit that we've come to know. It started with the release of the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4, which both saw features from the best Fitbit wearables omitted ahead of the launch of the Pixel Watch

But on the bright side, Google is seemingly giving you complete control over the data that has been stored with your Fitbit account. And the entire migration process makes it easy to get set up with Google's new Health Connect functionality which will sync data across different health and fitness apps.
