How to Change to a New Watch Face From a Smartwatch

You can change the clock face on your Fitbit Sense, Versa, or Ionic without the phone, directly from the watch. Similar to the app, the watch stores the 5 most recent watch faces used, and you can select from these faces at any time to switch to a different watch face on your Sense, Versa, or Ionic without the app. Here is how you can change the clock face on Fitbit Sense and Versa Watches directly.

Step 1: On your Fitbit Watch, tap to open the Clocks app.

Step 2: Swipe through the available faces to find the one you want to apply, and tap on it. The face you choose will be the new clock face on your device.

How to Add and Remove Watch Saved Watch Face on Fitbit Versa and Sense Watches

Fitbit automatically saves the first 5 watch faces you change to. To add a new watch face to the saved faces, you need to delete one of the existing saved faces.

Saving a clock face is not very important because you can change a face in the Fitbit app without adding it to the list of saved faces.

However, if you still insist on adding or removing clock faces from the list of 5 saved faces on your watch, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open the Fitbit app on your phone.

Step 2: Tap on your Profile Picture in the top right corner to open your Account Settings.

Step 3: Under Account Settings tap on your Fitbit Device.

Step 4: On the device page tap on Gallery.

Step 5: Tap the Clocks tab to open the saved clock faces.

Step 6: Tap on Remove Clock Face and confirm you want to remove the watch from the list of saved faces from the pop-up.

Now that a clock face is deleted, a placeholder for a new face is available. To add a new watch face to the placeholder, change to the preferred clock face. The watch face not only shows up in the saved watch faces section on the Fitbit app but also in the Clocks app on your Fitbit Watch.
