However, my Fitbit Versa 2 was not getting Snapchat Notifications for a couple of weeks. As an ardent Snapchatter, it vexed me a lot.
I jumped online to find a way to fix the issue, and it turns out this is a pretty common glitch with these watches.

To get Snapchat Notifications on Fitbit Versa 2, turn on Snapchat notifications on the Fitbit app installed on your phone. If the issue persists, change the show preview option and update the Fitbit app. You could also try turning off Do Not Disturb mode and keeping your phone and Fitbit within a close range.

Turn On the Notifications
To turn on Snapchat on your Fitbit versa, follow these exact steps:
1. Open the Fitbit app on your phone.
2. Click on your picture in the left corner.
3. Choose the device.
4. Scroll down to select ‘Notification’.
5. Choose Snapchat from the list of third-party apps available.
Change the Show Preview Option
Fitbit Versa 2 not showing the Snapchat notifications can also be the result of some default settings in the app that you are not aware of. ‘Show Preview’ is one such setting. To fix it do the following:
1. Open the Fitbit app on the phone.
2. Go to Settings.
3. Tap on Notifications.
4. Find Snapchat from the apps list.
5. Scroll down and find the option ‘Show Preview’.
6. Under Show Preview select either ‘When locked’ or ‘Always’.
Update the Fitbit App
At times, it can also be the outdated version of your Fitbit App that prevents the notification from appearing on your Versa screen. Try updating the app from the App Store or Play Store and see whether the problem gets solved. This technique is said to work 80% of the time.
Check After Each Update
Check if all the notifications are kept on after each update. This is because once the app is updated, it tends to switch off the app notifications by default.
Keep the Devices Within a Close Range
As the phone is connected via Bluetooth with the watch, you need to keep them within almost a 30 feet range for the notifications to register on your Fitbit. If they are too far from each other, the connection between the devices can be weak.
Turn Off Do Not Disturb
Keeping the ‘Do Not Disturb’ enabled on your phone can also be a reason for your Fitbit Versa not notifying the Snapchat notifications. DND not only keeps the phone on silent but also the watch when connected.
Install the bitTracker App
If the above techniques are not working, you can go for outside help. BitTracker is an app that helps to sync the Fitbit products settings with your phone. It acts as an aid for third-party app usage.
BitTracker is not free. You can buy it from the App Store or Play Store. Once the installation and syncing are done, turn on the apps (from a list) that you want to have notifications from. You can now see the Snapchat notifications on your Fitbit Versa 2 screen.
