Simple directions for configuring Fitbit Versa for the first time

Simple directions for configuring Fitbit Versa for the first time

You must first set up your Fitbit Versa before you can use it. The entire method is straightforward, albeit it does need some fundamental skills such as following simple instructions, having access to a wireless internet connection, and a little patience. The entire process may take around 30 minutes, however a significant portion of that time is spent waiting. To prevent generating sync issues, don't interrupt the process after it's started. Although your watch may be used on its own, we recommend connecting it to your phone, tablet, or computer so you can track your progress in your Fitbit account. You can view your data, analyze historical patterns, establish goals, track food and water, connect with friends, and more in your Fitbit account.



Fitbit Versa is simple to set up, even for non-tech aware consumers. The steps to get started with your watch are outlined here.


Step 1 of the Fitbit Versa setup process is to download and install the Fitbit app.



The first step is to make sure you have the fitbit.com setup app installed on your phone, tablet, or computer. The app is what makes your Fitbit Versa a good phone, tablet, or PC companion. You won't be able to fully appreciate the features that make your smart tracker so special if you don't have it. Depending on the device you're using, you can download the app.


●    Visit the Play Store and click this link if you're using an Android smartphone.

●    Open the Apple App Store and download this link for Apple devices.

●    If you're using Windows 10 on a computer, phone, or tablet, you'll need to go to the Microsoft Store.


Keep in mind that if you don't have a Microsoft account, you won't be able to download or install apps from the Microsoft Store.


Step 2 of the Fitbit Versa setup process is to create a Fitbit account.


The next step in setting up Fitbit Versa is to tap the Join Fitbit button once the Fitbit app has been loaded on your device. This starts the registration procedure for a Fitbit account. To create your Fitbit account, just follow the on-screen prompts. For this setup, you'll need an email account, so make sure it's one you check frequently. If you use emails that you don't use regularly, you're more likely to forget your Fitbit login in the future. Fitbit will ask you for personal information such as your complete name, gender, height, and weight when you create an account. The app and your Fitbit Versa will require this information to determine your basal metabolic rate, or BMR. This, in turn, aids in the calculation of your BMI and projected calorie expenditure. Don't worry, the app's collected data is kept private by default until you want to share it with your contacts or friends.


Your Fitbit Versa will prompt you to connect to WiFi throughout the setup process. This is required for your tracker to connect to your network and do tasks like as downloading music playlists, downloading applications from the Fitbit App Gallery, installing firmware and OS upgrades, and configuring additional settings. As a result, we strongly advise that you set up your watch at home to ensure a reliable and fast internet connection.


If you already have a fitbit.com/setup account, choose Log in rather than Join Fitbit. Then, to regain access to your account, enter your credentials once more. The device may prompt you to apply an update once you login in. This is determined by the status of the app at the time of installation.



Step 3 of the Fitbit Versa setup is to pair the devices.


Pairing the devices is the final step in setting up your Fitbit Versa. After that, you're ready to start wearing your smart watch.


How can I set up my Fitbit Versa if I don't have access to a phone or tablet?

Even if you don't have a compatible phone or tablet, you can still use a computer to use your Fitbit Versa watch. However, in order for this to operate, your computer must have Bluetooth capabilities. Most laptops have Bluetooth built in, so if you have a desktop that doesn't, you'll need to get a wireless sync dongle like this one first. You are not need to purchase a Fitbit-branded dongle. If you're not sure what to purchase, go to your local electronics store and ask about this item. Then, on your PC, install the Fitbit Connect app. Fitbit Connect is a free program that allows you to sync your Fitbit Versa with your computer. Follow these steps to set up Fitbit Connect on your computer:


1.   Insert a wireless sync dongle into a USB port on your computer if it isn't Bluetooth-enabled. If you're using a laptop, make sure Bluetooth is turned on.

2.   Go to http://www.fitbit.com/setup to get started.

3.   Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the pink Download button.

4.   Double-click the downloaded file to begin installation when it has finished downloading.

5.   When asked after installation, select Set up a New Fitbit Device.

6.   Create a Fitbit account and connect your device by following the on-screen directions.


That concludes our discussion. By this time, your Fitbit Versa should be up and running. Get moving!
