Buy a Fitbit in Australia

29th March by

If you have been following the blog for a while now, you will be aware of how much I love the Fitbit. A little gadget that makes it easy to track your steps and your sleep.

Fitbit have been selling in the US for a couple of years now, but we haven’t been able to buy a Fitbit in Australia from the Fitbit website.

Fitbit tells us that this comes down to the wireless technology that they use — to sync the Fitbit with the Fitbit dock. To legally sell the Fitbit in Australia, Fitbit needs to make sure that the frequency they use is approved by Australian regulators.

This doesn’t mean that the Fitbit won’t work in Australia, it does! Check out my Fitbit review if you want more information on why I love the Fitbit!

So where can you buy a Fitbit in Australia

Buying a Fitbit on Ebay?

I have spent a lot of time researching the best place to buy a Fitbit in Australia. Ebay is one option, but it’s not the best. Most Fitbits on Ebay are marked up by up to $50, which is ridiculous when you consider the Aussie dollar.

Buy from Amazon!

When I found out that I could buy my Fitbit on Amazon, my first impression was that it wouldn’t work. I have seen so many gadgets on Amazon that aren’t available to ship in Australia. I was pleasantly surprised when I added the Fitbit to cart, I got the confirmation email and a week later, I had my very own Fitbit! Here is the listing I bought from. It was shipped by Amazon, so you can get other things like books, movies and Beats Headphones, without doing multiple shipments!

Buy Fitbit here

The Fitbit Aria is now available on Amazon!
With inexpensive shipping to Australia as well! Buy here

    I’ve bought four Fitbits from Amazon with no problems. My biggest problem is my dog keeps eating them.

      Oh no! haha. Have you eventually ‘retrieved’ them?

    Just tried the link and it says they can’t ship to Australia.

    Any other options?

    You can now buy from Amazon again. I just bought one and it let me ship to Australia.

    • joshjanssen

      Great! Thanks for letting us know, James!

    Yep, I ordered my Fitbit Ultra from Amazon an April 1st and it arrived today (10th)
    However I still can’t get the iphone app, they have blocked it from the Australian iTunes store, which is pretty sucky for a free app, and pretty bad customer service.

  • Patricia

    OH, forgot to add it was $95 and $6 postage to Melbourne.

    Amazon.com (the U.S. site) only ships about a third of its product range to Australia. If you get stuck ordering something (Doesn’t have to be fitness related or electronics), https://flycrates.com ship Amazon to Australia.
