"I enjoy listening to Audible audiobooks when I am running because it lets me acquire knowledge conveniently. And I just bought a Fitbit Versa smartwatch to replace my old iPod. Anyone has ideas on how to play Audible audiobooks on Fitbit Versa?" - Question from the Fitbit forum

Fitbit is an American company which produced a series of activity trackers, wristband trackers, smartwatches. The well-known products are Fitbit Zip, Fitbit Flex 2/Alta/Alta HR/ Ace/Charge 3, Fitbit Ionic/Versa. All of these devices have good fitness tracking, motion tracking, long battery life and more. In particular, the latest smart watches, Fitbit Ionic or Versa, have the ability to play music files and podcasts. Do you have the same requirement mentioned above? To help you solve this problem, here we will offer an alternative solution to play Audible files on Fitbit Versa.

Play audiobooks on Fitbit Smartwatch

Audible is the largest platform for producing and selling audiobooks. The official way to play audible files are by using the Audible app, Windows Media Player, iTunes. Other music players won't work simply due to the reason that Audible AA/AAX files are protected with the FairPlay protection.

So can we install Audible app into Fitbit Versa? Unfortunately no. Though Fitbit supports a variety of apps like Deezer, Pandora, Music, Starbucks, Flipboard, Nest, Audible app is not there. In this case, the official ways won't work and you have to turn to third-party alternative solutions.

Here we are glad to recommend an alternative way: that is to using Sidify Apple Music Converter to convert Audible or iTunes audiobooks to MP3 or M4A, then transfer the converted audiobooks to Fitbit Smartwatch.

Alternative program: Any Audiobook Converter – convert AA/AAX audiobooks to M4A, M4B or MP3; 60X faster conversion speed; keep chapters and ID3 tags.
