Does Fitbit have Cellular

Fitbit has the best smartwatch collection. They are among top smartwatch brands like Apple and Samsung. Fitbit only manufactures smartwatches so they put all their great ideas and effort into it. As we know Samsung and Apple provide cellular version watches. So, does the only smartwatch manufacturer company Fitbit, provides a cellular smartwatch?

No, unfortunately, Fitbit doesn’t support cellular or 4G LTE. All of their watch and fitness trackers are Bluetooth devices. Fitbit does not build standalone watches. If you want to have a cellular watch then you might buy an apple or Samsung watch.

Why Fitbit doesn’t have any cellular watches?

Fitbit doesn’t have any cellular watch and the company is not making it yet. I don’t think they feel like their Customer needs a cellular watch.

I chat with their support team member and they told me that we currently do not have any cellular features for Fitbit watches. Currently, they support the Bluetooth version and they ask me to fill the new feature suggestion forum. After that, I filled the forum with a request to make a Fitbit cellular feature. I told them both Apple and Samsung have the watch standalone feature. Why the big smartwatch-making company like Fitbit is providing it yet? Now let’s see if they take the suggestion seriously.
