Fitbits are one of the best fitness trackers that also double as smartwatches. Many people prefer sharing their devices with their family members instead of getting multiple devices for each member. It’s more affordable that way. But is it possible to have two accounts on a Fitbit?
Yes, you can have two accounts on a Fitbit. However, you can only create one account on one email address. So each user should have their own Fitbit account to make it work. When the first user syncs their data to the Fitbit, they can hand it over to the second user to set it up as a new device.
Users can only associate one Fitbit account per email address. So if you want to have two accounts on Fitbit, you will have to use different email addresses for each account.
To make this work, the first user will have to track their activities, sync it to their Fitbit account on their device, and then sign out of their account. Next, the second user will have to set the Fitbit device as a new device on their Fitbit account and then track their activity.
Once they are done, they can sync it to their account and logout. Now the first user can connect the Fitbit to their account by logging in. Just remember to always sync your data before you hand your Fitbit to the other user.
