It's taken Fitbit a while to create a smartwatch with a design that most everyone can get behind, but they finally pulled this off with the Versa.

The Fitbit Versa is currently one of the best smartwatch options to choose from for folks rocking an Android phone, and just like any good smartwatch, the Versa has a variety of clock faces to choose from so you can customize its appearance to your exact liking.

The process for doing so isn't the smoothest around, so if you need a helping hand, we've got you covered.

How to change your clock face

If you're getting bored with your current clock face and want something new, here's what you need to do.

  1. Open the Fitbit app on your phone and tap the Versa icon in the upper right-hand corner
  2. Tap the Clock Faces tile and select All Clocks
  3. Once you've found a clock face you like, tap on it and hit Select
  4. A loading bar will appear, and after a small vibration and a loading screen on your Versa, the new face should automatically pop up.

There are a number of categories to choose from, including By Fitbit, Stats Heavy, Digital, Analog, Fitbit Labs, and All Clocks. To view more of the clock faces in a collection, tap the View All button.

How to customize an existing clock face

Depending on the clock face you choose, you may be able to control more minute aspects of its design – such as its colors, time format, etc.

Not all clock faces do a good job at indicating whether or not they come with these additional options, but assuming you've got one that can be customized, this is what you'll do.

  1. Open the Fitbit app on your phone and tap the Versa icon in the upper right-hand corner
  2. Tap the Clock Faces tile
  3. If your current clock face can be customized, you'll see a small gear icon by its name
  4. After taping the gear, you'll be taken to the settings page for your clock face

  • It's a great form factor but such a cruddy app. After Step 2 I constantly get the error message "looks like there's no Internet connection". But my Internet connection is just fine. All other apps requiring data and Internet are working. It's a shame Fitbit had to decimate Pebble and still can't even get it right...
  • Why this flood of Fitbit articles? Does the Versa have Android OS on board?! Can you side-load Android apps? If no, I‘d rather you told me how to do all of this on the Amazfit Stratos, which IS based on Android, or dedicate some time reviewing Android Wear watches like the Polar, Casio or Nixon. I am very very much into fitness, but this is getting ridiculous.
