I have a Fitbit Charge HR tracker and it has worked (almost) perfectly with Android 8 on my Nokia 8. Just got the Android 9 Pie update and it does not sync anymore, it consistently reports a BT failure. BT works with audio devices.

This is a well known issue, people with Pixel2 phones have been screaming about this since last September...

How is it that at every new Android release we lose BT functionalities? Since Oreo my BT HFT handsfree carkit stopped working, now my tracker.

CAN I ROLL BACK TO 8 PLEASE???????????

Or shall I go back to an iPhone?

  • Delete the device in Bluetooth settings and re-pair through the Fitbit app

    I suggest to turn off the battery manager for better sync
