Fitbit Versa 2 is this year’s premium smartwatch that comes with some new essential functions and third-party app support. Fitbit has finally received an official Spotify app so users can now listen to their favorite songs online or offline. Now the company has launched it on previous Versa, Versa Lite & Iconic smartwatches with all the original features. Alexa is also pre-installed as personal voice assistant on the Versa 2 to guide you in many ways. Then what about WhatsApp on Fitbit Versa & Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatches, is it available for Fitbit watches?
Well, the answer is not going in your favor. You have to wait another year or two to get the WhatsApp app. Luckily, even though there is no official app, you can use WhatsApp in other ways. You can use it on Apple iPhone or Android smartphones. It is not the way to experience the whole app on your smartphone but this way, you can receive, reply, edit or delete messages. Here is how to use WhatsApp on Fitbit Versa & Versa 2 wearables.
WhatsApp on Fitbit Versa & Versa 2
1. Make sure Bluetooth is ON on your paired smartphone
2. Go to Settings & enable Notifications on the smartphone
3. Now open Fitbit app & tap on Account
4. You will see your smartwatch name, Versa or Versa 2. Click on it
5. In the options, tap on Notifications
6. Then choose App Notifications
7. Now in the list activate the button or toggle in front of WhatsApp Messenger
It is the easiest way to receive & read WhatsApp messages on your Fitbit smartwatch. Whenever you get the new message, it will appear on the main screen. You can swipe down to read it or tap & hold the top button.
Make sure you didn’t mute any contact or groups in WhatsApp. Those messages will not arrive in the smartwatch. If you softened those contacts on purpose then avoid it. Fitbit will store max 30 messages on the smartwatch and when the new comes, the older one will be deleted.
