EU Fitbit Users Face App and Watch Face Restrictions: What You Need to Know

Fitbit users in the European Union are facing a big change when it comes to customizing their smartwatches. Google has announced that all third-party apps and clock faces will be removed from the Fitbit app gallery starting in June 2024. This update is due to new “regulatory requirements” imposed by the EU.

Here’s what you need to know about this upcoming change:

– EU Fitbit users have until June 2024 to add any third-party apps or clock faces before this feature is disabled.
– After the deadline, you will only be able to install apps and clocks developed by Fitbit and Google. Existing third-party content on your Fitbit will still work, but no new installations will be possible.
– This change only affects EU users, so U.S. users are not impacted.

Popular Fitbit smartwatches like Fitbit Sense, Versa series, and Ionic will be affected by this change. The specific EU regulation driving this decision has not been disclosed by Google.

This move raises questions about the future user experience for Fitbit users in Europe and whether more tech regulations from the EU could follow. It’s a good idea to download any third-party apps and clock faces you might need before the restriction takes effect. Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving situation.
