How to Enable Dark Mode in Fitbit App

In this guide, we will show you two different methods to enable Dark Mode in the Fitbit app. There are quite a few benefits attached when it comes to switching over to the dark side! Among them, the minimization of the glaring lights protruding from the screen is among the most important ones, especially for users who are visually impaired or suffering from migraine. Likewise, since fewer pixels are now active on the screen, it will result in the saving of the battery percentage as well.

With that said, having a dark mode was once considered a luxury but now it has become the norm with near about every app having the option to switch between dark and light mods. Except for Fitbit. Users have been requesting this feature for ages only to fall on deaf ears. Fortunately, we did manage to find out a couple of methods that should help you enable the Dark Mode in the Fitbit app. So without further ado, let’s check it out.

  1. Head over to Settings > About Phone and tap on Build Number 7 times.
  2. This will enable Developer Options. Go to Settings > System > Developer Options.dark mode fitbit
  3. Now enable the toggle next to Override Force-Dark.
  4. Finally, restart the Fitbit app and the dark mode will be enabled.dark mode fitbit
