What's in the box

The detachable wristbands on Versa 2 come in a variety of colors and materials,
sold separately.

Set up Versa 2

For the best experience, use the Fitbit app for iPhones and iPads or Android
phones.

To create a Fitbit account, you’re prompted to enter your birthdate, height, weight,
and sex to calculate your stride length and to estimate distance, basal metabolic
rate, and calorie burn. After you set up your account, your first name, last initial, and profile picture are visible to all other Fitbit users. You have the option to share otherinformation, but most of the information you provide to create an account is privateby default.

Charge your watch

A fully-charged Versa 2 has a battery life of 6+ days. Battery life and charge cycles
vary with use and other factors; actual results will vary.

To charge Versa 2:

  • Plug the charging cable into the USB port on your computer, or a UL-certified
    USB wall charger, or another low-energy charging device.
  • Pinch the clip and place Versa 2 in the charging cradle. The pins on the
    charging cradle must align with the gold contacts on the back of the watch.
    The percent charged appears on screen.

To charge Versa 2

  • While the watch charges, tap the screen twice to turn the screen on and check the battery level. Tap again to use Versa 2.

Set up with your phone or tablet

Set up Versa 2 with the Fitbit app for iPhones and iPads or Android phones. The
Fitbit app is compatible with most popular phones and tablets. For more information, see fitbit.com/devices.

To get started:

  • Download the Fitbit app:
    Apple App Store for iPhones and iPads
    Google Play Store for Android phones
  • Install the app, and open it.
    If you already have a Fitbit account, log in to your account > tap the Today tab > your profile picture > Set Up a Device.
    If you don’t have a Fitbit account, tap Join Fitbit to be guided through a series of questions to create a Fitbit account.
  • Continue to follow the on-screen instructions to connect Versa 2 to your
    account.

When you’re done with setup, read through the guide to learn more about your
new watch and then explore the Fitbit app.

For more information, see help.fitbit.com.

Connect to Wi-Fi

During setup, you’re prompted to connect Versa 2 to your Wi-Fi network. Versa 2
uses Wi-Fi to more quickly download playlists and apps from the Fitbit App Gallery, and for faster, more reliable OS updates.

Versa 2 can connect to open, WEP, WPA personal, and WPA2 personal Wi-Fi
networks. Your watch won’t connect to 5GHz, WPA enterprise, or public Wi-Fi
networks that require more than a password to connect⁠—for example, logins, subscriptions, or profiles. If you see fields for a username or domain when
connecting to the Wi-Fi network on a computer, the network isn’t supported.

For best results, connect Versa 2 to your home Wi-Fi network. Make sure you know
the network password before connecting.

For more information, see help.fitbit.com.

See your data in the Fitbit app

Sync Versa 2 to transfer your data to the Fitbit app, where you can view your
activity and sleep data, log food and water, participate in challenges, and more. For
best results, keep all-day sync turned on, so that Versa 2 syncs periodically with the
app. All-day sync is required for certain features on Versa 2, such as Amazon Alexa.

Unlock Fitbit Premium

Fitbit Premium helps you build healthy habits by offering tailored workouts,
insights into how your behavior impacts your health, and personalized plans to help
you reach your goals. The special edition of Versa 2 comes with a 3-month free trial
of Fitbit Premium in certain countries.

Fitbit Premium includes:

  • Detailed programs tailored to your health and fitness goals
  • Insights on your activity and progress throughout programs
  • Step-by-step workouts with Fitbit Coach

For more information, see help.fitbit.com.

Wear Versa 2

Place Versa 2 around your wrist. If you need to attach a different size wristband, or
if you purchased another wristband, see the instructions in “Change the wristband”
on page 14.

Placement for all-day wear vs. exercise

When you’re not exercising, wear Versa 2 a finger’s width above your wristbone.

Placement for all-day wear vs. exercise

For optimized heart-rate tracking while exercising:

  • During a workout, experiment with wearing the device higher on your wrist (2
    finger widths) for an improved fit. Many exercises such as bike riding or
    weight lifting cause you to bend your wrist frequently, which could interfere
    with the heart-rate signal if the watch is lower on your wrist.

For optimized heart-rate tracking while exercising

  • Wear your Fitbit device on top of your wrist, and make sure the back of thedevice is in contact with your skin.
  • Consider tightening your wristband before a workout and loosening it when
    you’re done. The wristband should be snug but not constricting (a tight wristband restricts blood flow, potentially affecting the heart-rate signal).

Handedness

For greater accuracy, you must specify whether you wear Versa 2 on your dominant
or non-dominant hand. Your dominant hand is the one you use for writing and
eating. To start, the Wrist setting is set to non-dominant. If you wear Versa 2 on
your dominant hand, change the Wrist setting in the Fitbit app:

From the Today tab in the Fitbit app, tap your profile picture > Versa 2 tile
> Wrist > Dominant.

Change the wristband

Versa 2 comes with a small wristband attached and an additional large, bottom
wristband in the box. Both the top and bottom wristbands can be swapped with
accessory wristbands, sold separately on fitbit.com. For wristband measurements,
see “Wristband size” on page 65. All Versa series wristbands are compatible with all
devices in the Fitbit Versa series.

Remove a wristband

  • Turn over Versa 2 and find the quick-release lever.
  • While pressing the quick-release lever inward, gently pull the wristband away
    from the watch to release it.

Remove a wristband

  • Repeat on the other side.

Attach a wristband

  • To attach a wristband, hold the band at a 45° angle and slide the pin (the side
    opposite the quick-release lever) into the notch on the watch.

Attach a wristband Part 1

  • While pressing the quick-release lever inward, slide the other end of the
    wristband into place.

Attach a wristband Part 2

  • When both ends of the pin are inserted, release the quick-release lever.

your watch vibrates.

When setting an alarm, turn on Smart Wake to allow your watch to find the best
time to wake you starting 30 minutes before the alarm time you set. It avoids

on your watch.

Use credit and debit cards

Set up Fitbit Pay in the Wallet section of the Fitbit app, and use your watch to make
purchases in stores that accept contactless payments.

We’re always adding new locations and card issuers to our list of partners. To see if
your payment card works with Fitbit Pay, see fitbit.com/fitbit-pay/banks.

Set up Fitbit Pay

To use Fitbit Pay, add at least 1 credit or debit card from a participating bank to the

cards, set a default card for your watch, edit a payment method, and review recent
purchases.

  • From the Today tab in the Fitbit app, tap your profile picture > Versa 2 tile.
  • Tap the Wallet tile.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to add a payment card. In some cases, your
    bank might require additional verification. If you’re adding a card for the first
    time, you might be prompted to set a 4-digit PIN code for your watch. Note
    that you also need passcode protection enabled for your phone.
  • After you add a card, follow the on-screen instructions to turn on notifications
    for your phone (if you haven’t already done so) to complete setup.

You can add up to 6 payment cards to the Wallet and choose which card to set as
the default payment option on your watch.

Make purchases using Fitbit Pay at any store that accepts contactless payments. To
determine if the store accepts Fitbit Pay, look for the symbol below on the payment
terminal:

Make purchases

All customers except those in Australia:

  • Activate Fitbit Pay.                                                                                            If you chose Fitbit Pay as your button shortcut, hold the button on your watch for 2 seconds.                                                                                                 Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the Fitbit Pay icon if you chose a different button shortcut.
  • If prompted, enter your 4-digit watch PIN code. Your default card appears on
    the screen.
  • To pay with your default card, hold your wrist near the payment terminal. To
    pay with a different card, swipe to find the card you want to use, and hold
    your wrist near the payment terminal.

Make purchases 2

Customers in Australia:

  • If you have a credit or debit card from an Australian bank, hold your watch
    near the payment terminal to pay. If your card is from a bank outside of
    Australia, or if you wish to pay with a card that is not your default card,
    complete steps 1-3 in the section above.
  • If prompted, enter your 4-digit watch PIN code.
  • If the purchase amount exceeds $100 AU, follow the instructions on the
    payment terminal. If prompted for a PIN code, enter the PIN code for your
    card (not your watch).

When the payment succeeds, your watch vibrates and you see a confirmation on
the screen.

If the payment terminal doesn’t recognize Fitbit Pay, make sure the watch face is
near the reader and that the cashier knows you’re using a contactless payment.

Troubleshooting

If Versa 2 isn’t working properly, see our troubleshooting steps below. Visit
help.fitbit.com for more information.

Heart-rate signal missing

Versa 2 continuously tracks your heart rate while you’re exercising and throughout
the day. If the heart-rate sensor on your watch has difficulty detecting a signal,
dashed lines appear.

Heart-rate signal missing

If your device doesn’t detect a heart-rate signal, first make sure heart-rate tracking
is turned on in the Settings app on your device. Next, make sure you’re wearing
your watch correctly, either by moving it higher or lower on your wrist or by tightening or loosening the wristband. Versa 2 should be in contact with your skin.
After holding your arm still and straight for a short time, you should see your heart
rate again.
For more information, see help.fitbit.com.

GPS signal missing

Environmental factors, including tall buildings, dense forest, steep hills, and even
thick cloud cover, can interfere with your phone’s ability to connect to GPS satellites. If your phone is searching for a GPS signal during an exercise,
“connecting” appears at the top of the screen.

Connect Bike

For best results, wait for your phone to find the signal before you start your workout.

Can’t connect to Wi-Fi

If Versa 2 can’t connect to Wi-Fi, you might have entered an incorrect password, or
the password might have changed:

  • From the Today tab in the Fitbit app, tap your profile picture > Versa 2 tile.
  • Tap Wi-Fi Settings > Next.
  • Tap the network you want to use > Remove.
  • Tap Add Network and follow the on-screen instructions to reconnect the Wi-
    Fi network.

To check if your Wi-Fi network is working correctly, connect another device to your network; if it connects successfully, try again to connect your watch.

If Versa 2 still won’t connect to Wi-Fi, make sure that you’re attempting to connect
your watch to a compatible network. For best results, use your home Wi-Fi
network. Versa 2 can’t connect to 5GHz Wi-Fi, WPA enterprise, or public networks
that require logins, subscriptions, or profiles. For a list of compatible network types,
see “Connect to Wi-Fi” on page 9.

After you verify the network is compatible, restart your watch and try connecting
to Wi-Fi again. If you see other networks appear in the list of available networks, but not your preferred network, move your watch closer to your router.

If you’re trying to download personal music or podcasts, make sure Versa 2 and
your computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. For a stronger Wi-Fi
connection, keep your watch close to your router.

For more information, see help.fitbit.com.
