The Fitbit Ionic Firmware update, viz., which included Fitbit OS 2.0, was released March 14, 2018.

The prior firmware version, viz.,, was released February 12, 2018.

A monthly firmware rollout is now fairly standard for these types of watches, whether Fitbit or Garmin.

So, I am anticipating an update anytime now. As we know there are PLENTY of bugs, some introduced with, such as GPS inaccuracy, that have to be fixed.

I hope they get it out sooner than later, and ideally this week! Why, I only have another 10-days with the Ionic. At that point my 12-year old gets it, in place of the iWOWNFit she got for her birthday. I am getting a Garmin Forerunner 935. Was going to get the Forerunner 645, but that, alas, like the Garmin Vivoactive 3, has too many teething issues.

So, ideally I would like to have the Ionic updated and tested before I hand it over.

May 3, 2018 would be exactly 3-months of me having the Ionic. I set that has a self-imposed punishment: “keep it for 3-months, now that you got one“!

I will, of course, keep you posted.
