    Pixel 4a and Fitbit charge4tracker compatability.
    Has anyone had success getting a Pixel 4a to work with the fitbit Charge4 tracker App? Fitbit support tells me they cannot help as the 4a is not yet on thier compatability list. I have read in other forums that others may of been successful. Thanks Mike

    That doesn't seem like a terribly exotic use case. What problems are you encountering?

    I was in the process of buying the 4a phone , as my current phone is shot, and decided to give Fitbit support a call to make sure it was compatable. They stated that it was not, and most probably would have issues such as synching, and could give me no further information. So i have not bought the phone yet. Poking around the Internet, I have read of some partial success with gettiing the Fitbit working on the 4a. I was hoping to get more details from someone who actually has been using it on the 4a.. Otherwise I will have to go with a different phone.

    The trouble is that Fitbit are very slow updating their compatibility list, and so will often list phones that work perfectly well as "incompatible". And online support staff work from a script, so if the device isn't on their list there's a high risk of just getting a stock answer, whether it actually works or not.

    So you are doing the right thing, trying to find out from someone who has actually used it. Unfortunately I don't have a 4a myself.

    I've got a 4a but not a Fitbit Charge 4. My wife uses an older Fitbit Charge with her Pixel 3 without any issues though.

    curious, I know you said you don't have the charge4 on the 4a, but do you have any Fitbit working on the 4a? Thanks

    No, I'm afraid not. I only use Wear OS.
