Fitbit is a 'Lifestyle and Activity Tracker' rather than a sports watch, so you won’t be able to upload your Runna workouts to your Fitbit watch (as you can do with Garmin, for example).
This means that your Fitbit watch won’t give you audio prompts during your workouts. For this reason, we recommend using your phone to benefit from Runna’s live coaching and your Fitbit watch to track your workouts at the same time.
