Whenever you get a new smartwatch, the first thing that you'll want to do is get it paired to your phone. But after that, you'll likely want to personalize your wearable with a watch face that isn't the one that comes pre-installed out of the box. And while there are a bunch of different options to choose from, you might want to check out how to add Google Arts & Culture faces to your Fitbit Versa 4 or Sense 2. 

This watch face is comprised of several different pieces of art from a digitalized collection. Google worked with various "cultural institutions and artists around the world to preserve and bring the world’s art and culture online so it’s accessible to anyone, anywhere." And now, you can add it to a couple of the best smartwatches

Plenty of watch faces, no more third-party apps

One of the more disappointing realizations following the launch of the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 was that you would no longer be able to install third-party apps. The company even went so far as to remove the ability to use Google Assistant, leaving users to rely on Amazon Alexa if they want a voice assistant on their wrist.

On the flip side, we're still happy to see that you can download and install third-party watch faces. And sometimes, Google or Fitbit will release a new watch face that can add a bit of flair to the best Fitbit, or just something different.
