Fitbit is a pioneer in the wearable fitness tracker industry, and its product line has grown from activity trackers to a lineup that includes smartwatches.

Fitbit is known for its accurate fitness metrics, including heart rate tracking, sleep tracking, ECG, and stress levels.

You might wonder if, like other smartwatch models like the Samsung Galaxy Watch, the AppleWatch, and Garmin can, you use a golf GPS app on your Fitbit?

The Tell Me More Golf team will look at the golf GPS app that is available for Fitbit devices, which devices you can use it on, and how the app stacks up to others on the market.

Fitbit And Golf Watches

Fitbit does not make a dedicated Golf GPS watch.


The only golf GPS app available for Fitbit devices is Golf GPS Rangefinder, a third-party app.

However, there are other apps available that can track your score when playing a round of golf.

The Golf GPS Rangefinder app works on several Fitbit models:

  • Fitbit Ionic
  • Fitbit Sense
  • Fitbit Versa
  • Fitbit Versa 2
  • Fitbit Versa 3
  • Fitbit Versa Lite

The Golf GPS Rangefinder app requires a $9.99 annual fee after a 7-day free trial.

Features of Golf GPS Rangefinder

Golf GPS Rangefinder golf app offers golfers basic information when using it during a round of golf.

Features included on Golf GPS Rangefinder for Fitbit:

  • Distances to Front, Middle, Back of the Green
  • Distances to Doglegs
  • Score Tracking
  • Club Distance Tracking
  • Club Suggestions
  • Automatically Advance to Next Hole
  • Automatic Swing Detection

Please note that no map function is available on the Golf GPS Rangefinder App for Fitbit; all data provided is in numeric format.

There is a course gallery on the Golf 4 Watch website where you can check to see if your course is available for download. 

In addition, the Tell Me More Golf staff looked for several courses in the area, and they were available for download.


The Fitbit Sense is the best Fitbit Model for golf, thanks to advanced fitness tracking metrics like ECG and stress monitoring. 

The Fitbit Versa 3 comes in second as it has the built-in GPS needed to run the Golf GPS Rangefinder app from the watch itself and not using the GPS on the phone.

Suppose you’re looking to use the watch to get accurate GPS yardages. In that case, Fitbit Sense, Ionic, and Fitbit Versa 3 have built-in GPS.

Other Fitbit models can use the GPS from a smartphone to get GPS yardage.

The battery life is similar between the Fitbit Sense and the Fitbit Versa 3. Because the Golf GPS Rangefinder app’s information is limited, the touchscreen size is not a factor.

Most Fitbit models are water-resistant up to 50m, so you can swim and shower with them. You won’t have to worry about getting caught in the rain during a round of golf.

Models like the Fitbit Sense and the Fitbit Versa 3 can also allow you to take phone calls and get text notifications when your phone is nearby.


Can You Golf With a Fitbit?

Yes, you can golf with several Fitbit models. You can get accurate yardages to the hazards, doglegs, and the front, back, and middle pin placements when out on the golf course.

The Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Ionic, and Fitbit Versa 3 have built-in GPS so that you can get yardages with the app on your watch. For all other models, the yardage is

The Golf GPS Rangefinder app can also keep score for a golfer, track how far they hit shots, and even give club recommendations.

You can also use a Fitbit as just a fitness tracker when playing a round of golf. You can use a golf GPS app or a laser rangefinder for your Android or iOS phone to get accurate yardages.

However, when compared to the best smartwatches on the market, like the AppleWatch series, Garmin, and Samsung, Fitbit does not offer the quality and variety of golf GPS apps that they do.

Can I Use a Fitbit For Golf GPS?

Yes, you can use a Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 3, and Fitbit Ionic with the Golf GPS Rangefinder app to play a round of golf. Using the GPS built into the watch, you can get accurate yardages and stat tracking on the golf course.

However, the app is not as developed and polished as apps commonly available for other smartphones and smartwatches.

If you have a Fitbit Versa 2, or Versa Lite, you can use the GPS on your phone and the app linked to the watch to get accurate distances from your phone.

Fitbit smartwatches are primarily fitness trackers. Fitbit is known for making some of the most accurate wearable fitness trackers.

Fitbit has been a player in the wearable sports tracker industry. They make durable, accurate watches and trackers that can provide a wealth of information on your fitness.

For golfers looking for a smartwatch that can also be a golf GPS rangefinder, Fitbit has the Golf GPS Rangefinder app. The app can give you basic on-course yardages, keep score, and shot tracking.

However, compared to the golf GPS apps available on the Apple Watch, Garmin, and Samsung, the Golf GPS Rangefinder app for Fitbit is limited in its display and functionality.

If you’re a golfer with a Fitbit and like to use it as a fitness tracker when playing golf, then a Fitbit is an excellent choice. If you’re looking for your Fitbit to use as a GPS golf watch, there is an app.

The Fitbit isn’t a great device for golf, so you might be better off using a laser rangefinder or a GPS golf app for your smartphone or smartwatch during your round. Instead, use your Fitbit to do what it does well, track your fitness.
