It takes a bit of tinkering, but you can force dark mode in the Fitbit app

I know it’s the hot design trend right now, but I’ll admit it: I’m a big fan of dark mode. It’s not that I dislike the traditional white backgrounds of Android and its respective apps, but I personally find the black (or near-black) background easier on my eyes, and it makes other design elements less jarring. Many Android OEMs have offered some kind of dark mode for system apps for years, and various developers have allowed it at the app level as well, but it wasn’t really a system-wide setting until Android 10. Most apps that I’ve seen have updated or adapted to respect this theme preference, but one stubborn holdout is my beloved Fitbit app. I’ll show you how you can force Fitbit to follow your dark theme preferences.
