Fitbit Sense is the perfect smartwatch to keep tabs on your health. However, users have been facing an issue with their Fitbit Sense when synced with iOS device.

It seems those affected started noticing excessive battery drain after syncing their Fitbit Sense with an iOS device after the iOS 14.6 update.

The iOS app for Fitbit also bagged the update to version 3.43 back in June and it is said to include fixes for the battery drain problem.

However, some users have still not received the said update which might be why they are experiencing the said problem with their Fitbit Sense.

While this issue appears to be related to the Fitbit app syncing with iOS devices, an easy workaround to temporarily fix the same is also available.


In order to reduce the excessive battery drain on Fitbit Sense, it is advisable to force quit the Fitbit app on the iOS device and then update it manually from App Store.

The said workaround appears to be doing the trick for many but it is unclear why some users did not receive the latest Fitbit app update on their iOS devices.

Nevertheless, if you are also affected the said issue, be sure to force update the Fitbit app on your iOS device and let us know if the battery drain gets reduced by dropping a comment below.


It must be noted that reports of the Fitbit Sense sync issues came to light back in May after a Fitbit app update for Android and iOS.

This time, though, the battery drain problem appears to be affecting only those with iOS devices (iPhone).

However, affected users can take a sigh of relief now that the issue has been resolved with the latest Fitbit app update for iOS.


That said, we will report back with more details as and when new information becomes available so stay tuned.
