What is Fitbit Premium?
Fitbit Premium is Fitbit’s monthly subscription service that unlocks extra fitness features, classes and health insights for your laptop and its app. It was launched in 2019. Fitbit is being acquired by Google.
How much does Fitbit Premium cost? Is there a free trial period?
Fitbit Premium costs $ 9.99 per month or $ 80 for one year.
In the beginning ofback in March, Fitbit began offering a 90-day free trial for new Fitbit Premium subscribers. The free trial period is still available.
Open the Fitbit app to redeem your free Fitbit Premium trial. Tap the Premium tab in the lower right corner. The trial is only valid via the English version of the app and only for new Premium users.
You must still enter a payment method and cancel it before the end of the trial period to avoid being charged a subscription fee.
If you are not eligible for a 90-day free trial, you may still be able to redeem a 90-day trial of Fitbit Coach, which offers personalized video exercises and coaching. Fitbit Coach is available in English, Spanish, French, German and Portuguese.
What is included in Fitbit Premium?
Fitbit Premium includes the following features that are not included in the Fitbit app without a subscription:
Workout: Get access to more than 150 guided video and audio exercises from exercise brands such as barre3, Daily Burn, Popsugar and Yoga Studio by Gaiam. You can search in training for difficulty and choose a training plan based on your goals.
Guided programs: Find step-by-step guided programs on topics such as mindful eating and sleep improvement.
Health and fitness statistics: Track activity, weight, sleep and nutrition with your Fitbit and see your progress in the app.
Advanced insights: Get personal insights like your Sleep Score breakdown and a health report on your Fitbit stats. You will also receive guidance based on these insights, such as a bedside checklist to improve sleep.
Mindfulness activities: Find a library of guided audio tracks and sounds that will help you calm your mind for sleep, stress reduction and body positivity.
Premium challenges: Be motivated to achieve your goals with challenges like Get Fit Bingo. Also invite friends who are not Premium subscribers.
Do I have to pay for Fitbit Premium if I buy a new Fitbit?
No, but Premium will unlock more of the upcoming health features. Sense contains an electrodermal activity sensor that you can press your palm against to read your total stress. You can watch the reading in a new free EDA app, but Premium members also get a new set of awareness and meditation features that also use the sensor. You will also be able to use many of the watch’s other new sensors (such as a SpO2 pulse oxygen sensor) for free, but if you want long-term analysis, you need Premium.
Fitbit Sense will include a six-month free trial of Premium, and the Fitbit Inspire 2 comes with a year-long free trial – so you should have plenty of time to figure out if these features are worth paying for a long term.
Is Fitbit Premium worth it for me?
If you own a Fitbit and want to mix up your training routine, it does not hurt to give Premium 90-day free trial – especially if you are not quite readyor your other training courses. Whether you want to pay $ 9.99 per month depends on how much you like (and actually use) the subscription offers and your own budget.
It’s not hard to find, subscribe to , or find and sleep tips online. But if you want all your exercise and health information consolidated in your Fitbit app, Premium can be helpful.
