Google, earlier this year, announced that sometime in summer this year it will start rolling out a new option that will enable existing Fitbit smartwatch and fitness tracker users to migrate their device and all its data from their old Fitbit accounts to their Google Account. At the time, the company had also said that once Fitbit users migrate their Fitbit devices to their Google Accounts, all of their data will also be migrated to their Google Account.
“If you’re an existing Fitbit user, you will have the option to move your Fitbit experience to a Google Account…With a Google Account you’ll get more Fitbit experiences and all your historical data with the benefits of a Google Account,” Google had said at the time.
More recently, a report said that Google has started rolling out the much-awaited feature to existing Fitbit users.
That said, at the moment, switch to Google Account is optional for Fitbit device owners. However, that will change in early 2025 when Google will end support of Fitbit accounts. After that Fitbit device users will require a Google account use their fitness trackers and smartwatches.
