learn how to cancel Fitbit paid subscriptions

If you signed up for one of Fitbit’s paid subscriptions (Premium or Coach) and decided that you aren’t using it enough, canceling it can be a bit confusing! The rule of thumb is to cancel your subscription from the same place you first signed up.

So if you signed up using the app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android mobile device, use the app to cancel it. And if you signed up using your computer or using the web, cancel it via that method.

One important note: Fitbit does not issue ANY refunds for its premium or coach subscriptions. So if you forget to cancel before it auto-renews, you will not get your money back. 

Once you understand Fitbit’s rules for canceling Fitbit Premium or Fitbit Coach, it’s a pretty straightforward process. So let’s take a look!

Check which type of subscription you have–either Premium or Coach, then follow the steps to cancel depending on which subscription you have.

We highly recommend that you cancel ANY Fitbit subscription at least 24 hours before it renews and charges your payment method!

Want to change from a monthly plan to an annual plan for Fitbit premium or Fitbit Coach?

If you enjoy your Fitbit subscription(s) benefits but also want to get the cost savings of subscribing to an annual plan instead of a monthly plan, it’s not a simple toggle. It seems that you need first to cancel the monthly plan and then later opt-in for the annual plan.

What we discovered is that you need to cancel the monthly plan and then wait for the plan to expire. Once expired, you can then (and only then) subscribe to the annual plan.

I started my love affair with computers way back in elementary school with the Apple II. Since then, I've worked with technology in my career as a media educator and videomaker. I have an MFA in media making from Temple University, where I also taught undergrads as an adjunct faculty member. So I know a thing or two about teaching others and creating how-to guides! After a cancer diagnosis, I turned to mobile technology like my Apple Watch to help me monitor my health throughout my chemotherapy treatment and later, to regain my wellness once in remission. I love sharing how to understand and use mobile tech, like smartwatches and phones, as a tool for empowerment to live our best and healthiest lives!

    • Hi Patty,

      As noted in the article, Fitbit rarely (if ever) refunds any premium or coach services that you already paid. When you cancel you current membership, you should see a date when the subscription ends and won’t renew.

      You could try contacting your bank or credit card company that issued your card and dispute the purchase with them directly, instead of via Fitbit.
