Pandora to be streaming provider on new Fitbit device

Pandora has entered a partnership with fitness wearable company Fitbit to be the exclusive streaming music provider for the new Fitbit Ionic. Through this arrangement, subscribers to Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium tiers can sync workout stations or their top created stations directly to a Fitbit Ionic without needing their phones. In the blog post announcing the tie-up, Pandora cite the Fitbit Motivation Mixtape as one of the workout stations that could be directly synced, indicating that both services will see promotion on each other’s platforms.

The Fitbit Ionic is currently only available for pre-sale on the company’s website. It will launch in retail stores in October 2017.
