Step 2

Tap on Apps and find the Weather app from the list. Click on Weather to access its settings.

How Do I Allow the Fitbit App to Use My Phone’s GPS?

All modern android phones come with a GPS. However, if your phone’s GPS is not working or experiencing issues, you can use the Fitbit app to record GPS data. 

On top of that, you also have to make sure that your mobile phone’s access to the location is always set at ‘all the time’ or ‘always’. 

Fitbit Ionic, Sense, and Versa 3 have built-in GPS, so you don’t need your phone’s GPS for them. But, Fitbit Charge 2, Charge 3, Charge 4, Charge 5, Blaze, Inspire 2, Inspire HR, Luxe, Versa, Versa 2, and Versa LE need to use the GPS of your phone. 

Lastly, turn off the Fitbit app and restart your phone. 

Why is the Weather Not Syncing with My Fitbit Device?

Solution 1

When you are experiencing something like this, check to see if your GPS is working or not. Then, go to your Fitbit profile, find the Weather, and have a look at the settings. Select the right location from the menu. 

To complete, sync the Weather app with the Fitbit device. Just to make sure that all goes well, restart your mobile phone. See if the sync is back.

Solution 2

If not, in the Fitbit app dashboard, tap on the Account icon, and check if the ‘all-day sync’ is turned on. Just turn it on. The Weather should sync properly now. 

Solution 3

On the other hand, if you have a habit of moving apps to your phone’s SD card, this may be the reason behind your syncing errors. 

To solve this issue, go to your phone’s settings, select Apps, and then the Fitbit app. Go to Storage, and change to ‘internal shared storage’. Then, from now on, your Android phone will move the Fitbit app to internal storage. 

Finally, enable the location of the Fitbit app. 

Why is the Weather Not Updating in My Fitbit Device?

If you Fitbit is refusign to update the Weather app, follow these solutions below. 

Solution 1

Sometimes the battery optimization feature may be getting in the way of your Fitbit Weather updating itself. Just diable the battery optimization from the settings. 

Solution 2

Delete the current location and add it again on the Fitbit Weather app. It will trick the Fitbit app to update the current location and weather. 

Solution 3

When you’re using mobile data to run your Fitbit app, it may be subject to background data restrictions. This will prevent new updates from installing on your phone. 

To solve this case, go to the settings to turn off data restrictions and use a WiFi network instead. 

Solution 4

Since you’re using many apps on your mobile phone, the many mechanisms working at the same time may block certain features from functioning properly. For this reason, keep your phone’s clean internal system clean and also re-install the Fitbit app. 

Solution 5

Lastly, the classic solution to most problems in the world is to restart your mobile phone. If that fails, factory reset your phone, then reinstall the Fitbit app. All will be well from then on!

In a Nutshell

To sum up the content of this article, you need to get familiar with the Fitbit app to figure things out. Upon owning one of the Fitbit devices, complete your profile honestly, set up the location, turn on the GPS, and let the apps sync with your mobile phone.
