Set up Amazon Alexa or other Amazon devices now with the new Fitbit Versa 2 devices, it is now possible.
Have you ever wanted to check your Fitbit devices to see how many steps you have taken, but had your hands busy washing dishes? Or maybe, you were preparing breakfast and wanted to know how you slept the night before. For this and other similar situations you can use Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant, and get the information without checking your Fitbit.
Here are some steps to link Amazon Alexa with Fitbit:
All you have to do is link your Fitbit with the Amazon Alexa application and say: ‘Alexa, ask Fitbit’ and then indicate some of the different Fitbit data options. Immediately, your smart device will read the requested information aloud.
Follow these steps to synchronize your Fitbit with Alexa and an Echo speaker.
Add Fitbit to the Amazon Alexa app
- Start by saying: ‘Alexa, link my Fitbit‘. If you use an Android device, click here if you don’t have the application yet. If you have a smartphone with IOS, click here to start enjoying Alexa.
- Open your Amazon Alexa application.
- Touch the three lines located in the upper left corner.
- Touch ‘Skills and games’, then select the ‘My skills‘ tab. Also, when you ask Alexa to connect to a device, this information is stored in the ‘My skills‘ tab so you can finish the configuration.
- Select Fitbit in the list and touch ‘Settings‘.
- Select ‘Link account‘ and enter the email address and password associated with your Fitbit.
- Check all the boxes of the information you want Alexa to access, and leave unchecked those you want to keep private.
Now you can get your Fitbit statistics without looking at your wrist.
What can I ask Alexa about my Fitbit?

“Alexa, ask Fitbit how many steps I’ve taken.”
