We are retiring Fitbit Studio as part of our effort to streamline our developer tooling. Fitbit Studio will enter a read-only mode on March 20, 2023, and will fully shut down on April 20, 2023.
All developers should switch to using the command-line SDK as a direct replacement for Fitbit Studio. Please export your projects now and refer to this guide for instructions about using the command-line SDK. We recognize that this may be a difficult change for some developers, and we are here to provide support during this transition via this developer forum.
Remember, Fitbit Studio will enter a read-only mode on March 20, 2023 and will shut down on April 20, 2023, so be sure to export your projects from Fitbit Studio before April 20, 2023, after which they will be permanently deleted.
We've put together a list of some frequently asked questions below to help you migrate your projects.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I still build my apps and clocks without Fitbit Studio?

Login to Fitbit Studio, open an existing project
Download > Export Project.

No, sometimes the act of building a project would modify specific project files, therefore building and deploying will not be enabled.

After Fitbit Studio has been shut down on April 20, 2023 all data will be deleted and unrecoverable.

You need to install Node.js, then follow our command-line SDK guide.
Q: How do I update my existing projects to work with the command-line SDK?
You need to edit your project's
package.json file and ensure it contains the
sdk-cli dependencies. Our command-line SDK
guide contains the full information for
updating existing projects.
