Can Apple AirPods connect to the Fitbit Versa?

Because sometimes, the best fitness tracker isn’t an Apple Watch.

When choosing workout tech, there are no hard and fast rules – use whatever works best for you. That sometimes leads to mismatches between manufacturers hardware, like using the super popular Apple AirPods with a fitness tracker that isn’t the Apple Watch.

I mean, the battery life on the Fitbit Versa is far superior, so if you’re a marathon fan you might want the extra staying power.

So can I connect my Apple AirPods to the Fitbit Versa?

The longer version is more of a troubleshooting how-to if you’re running into problems. We’ll come over the steps below.

  • Turn off Bluetooth on your iPhone, or unpair your AirPods
  • Put your AirPods into the case, and go into another room
  • Put your Fitbit Versa into Bluetooth pairing mode (Settings > Bluetooth > + Audio Device)
  • With your AirPods in the case, flip open the lid
  • Hold down the pairing button on the back of the AirPods case
  • You’ll see the white pairing light on your AirPods case
  • Tap on the AirPods name on the list that appears on your Fitbit Versa to complete pairing

That should connect your Apple AirPods to your Fitbit Versa.
