Tips for When Changing a Fitbit Versa Watchband
- Holding your Fitbit watch, pull down on the pin which will release the band from the top of your watch.
- With the bottom of the pin pressed down, showing more pin at the bottom of the band. Place the pin into the small hole indentation at the bottom of the watch itself. You may or may not hear a click when it is inserted into the bottom of the watch.
- In preparation for placing the top pin into the top slot, always securing the bottom pin is still in place.
- You will want to make sure the watchband is not straight out but at an inward angle.
