The best tips and tricks for Fitbit Ionic

Fitbit is a big name in the area of fitness technology and wireless-enabled wearable devices. Fitbit’s devices allow users to get their health details such as heart rate, quality of sleep, calories burned and steps climbed. Fitbit has been working on improving its products for years, expanding their usefulness beyond just being able to track your sleep or measure the number of steps walked. Fitbit-branded wearable devices are now a bigger deal than you expect.

Last year, the American company launched a fitness watch called Fitbit Ionic. The Ionic was widely welcome at launch, with most users and experts praising the device’s exciting features and premium design.

In this guide, we have created a list of the best tips and tricks that help you get the most out of your Fitbit Ionic. For some background, the Fitbit Ionic now costs $269 at That’s much cheaper than the $329 Apple Watch.

  1. Gestures

One of the best things when it comes to the Ionic lies in its handy gestures. All made possible by its smooth touchscreen display. A swipe-up helps reveal your notifications, while a swipe-down reveals music controls.  Besides, you can quickly access settings by simply performing a swipe-right. If you want to see all of your installed apps, just simply swipe left on the touchscreen.

  1. Button navigation

The Ionic comes with physical buttons for navigation, thus making everyday tasks much easier. The left button serves as a back button, allowing you to quickly go back to your previous sessions. It also acts as a quick way to fire up Fitbit Pay. If you perform a long press on the top-right button, then you have access to music control menu. A short press will launch the first app from your dock. A long press on the bottom-right button reveals your notifications, while a short press quickly launches the third app in your dock.

  1. Apps

The Fitbit Ionic has its own store with a lot of apps. However, there is no direct way to install apps on your watch, as you need a helping hand from your phone. To install an app on the Ionic, download the Fitbit app on your phone and then open it. After that, hit the watch icon in the top left and select Apps. Once you are in, select the All Apps tab, find the app you wish to install and hit the Install button.

  1. Watch faces

Fitbit offers multiple ways to customize your watch faces. To do this, you simply need to download the Fitbit app from the App Store or the Play Store. Once you are done, launch the app on your phone, then hit the watch icon > Clock Faces. Keep in mind that you only can install a single watch face at once. If you want to install a new watch face, visit the Clock Faces section and select your watch face.

  1. Connect headphones

The Fitbit Ionic includes the ability to connect to Bluetooth headphones and stream music without the need for a nearby phone. To pair headphones with the watch, launch the Settings app on your watch, then select Bluetooth, followed by New Device. Once you are in, you should see a list of all Bluetooth headphones and select the device you wish to connect to.
