How to Get Text Messages on Fitbit Versa 2 (Android/iPhone)

how to get text messages on fitbit versa 2

Fitbit Versa 2 has a feature that allows you to receive text messages which are great for your productivity on the go. Here’s how to get text messages on Fitbit Versa 2 on Android and iPhone.

However, there are things you need to know before setting up this feature on Fitbit Versa 2. It’s that you can only receive text messages on your iPhone, but you can’t reply to them. You can do both on Android.

But one thing for sure is that you can’t start a conversation and send messages without replying. You can only send messages as a reply to the text messages you receive.

Another thing is that you can’t receive calls or make ones directly via the device whether you use Android or iPhone. But you can answer calls and talk via the phone.

Fitbit Versa 2 has a microphone, but you can use it only to summon Alexa, which can’t be used to answer calls because you won’t be able to hear it (Fitbit Versa 2 has no speaker).

This may be disappointing, but at least you can respond to anyone who messages you when you hike (on Android).
