Fitbit Versa 3 Weather App

Fitbit Versa 3 is an evolution of the Fitbit Versa 2, so there are the PurePulse 2.0 technology and all the features you already know from the Fitbit Versa 2, see sleep detection, heart rate detection, etc.

In addition, it features a GPS sensor, so it can follow your routes without carrying the phone. Not only will you be able to find out the distance traveled, but you will also access a breakdown of the intensity by sections to see which areas have cost you the most and in which you have been most comfortable.

Besides these features, Fitbit Versa 3 is one of the Fitbit models that have a weather app. The weather app lets me stay informed about weather alerts right from my wrist and make informed decisions accordingly.

The Weather app allows me to stay updated about weather changes or any dire weather warnings from anywhere, check the accurate weather forecast, access all local and international weather updates, and know the exact temperature and other conditions like humidity, sunset, sunrise, visibility, gusts, etc., daily.

What to Do if Your Fitbit Weather App Won’t Update

If you’re having trouble updating your Fitbit weather app, you can solve this issue in the following ways:

Set Your Location Again

Sometimes the issue of weather updates gets resolved by adding the location again. To do this, remove the current location, and add it again, forcing the app to show your region’s latest weather forecast. If it doesn’t work, remove your location, change it to another city, and then again to your current location.

Disable Battery Optimization

Battery optimization might be the reason that’s stopping data updates from the Internet. To resolve this, go to the settings and remove the weather app battery optimization.

Remove Data Restrictions

If your mobile app depends on mobile data, there is a chance that

Background data restrictions also prevent your Fitbit app from receiving updates. To change this, go to settings to turn off data restrictions.

Reset the App

By resetting the app, you can also solve the weather update issue. Restart the app and change your location following the first step. You can also reinstall the app to see if the weather gets updated.

Reboot Your Device

The last resort is rebooting your smartphone when none of the above methods fix the problem. Turn off your smartphone, and then turn it on again. Go to the weather app to update it.
