Wear Versa 4

Wear Versa 4 around your wrist. If you need to attach a different size band, or if you purchased another band, see the instructions in Change the band.

Placement for all-day wear vs. exercise

When you're not exercising, wear Versa 4 a finger's width above your wrist bone.

In general, it's always important to give your wrist a break on a regular basis by removing your watch for around an hour after extended wear. We recommend removing your watch while you shower. Although you can shower while wearing your watch, not doing so reduces the potential for exposure to soaps, shampoos, and conditioners, which can cause long-term damage to your watch and may cause skin irritation.

Where to place the watch on your wrist for daily wear

For optimized heart-rate tracking while exercising:

  • During workouts, try moving the band higher on your wrist to get a better fit. If you experience any discomfort, loosen the band, and if it persists give your wrist a break by taking it off.

Where to place the watch on your wrist during exercise

  • Wear your watch on top of your wrist, and make sure the back of the device is in contact with your skin.

Fasten the band

  1. Place Versa 4 around your wrist.
  2. Slide the bottom band through the first loop in the top band.

  3. Tighten the band until it fits comfortably, and press the peg through one of the holes in the band. If you use one of the last two holes in the smaller band, we recommend swapping to the larger band for a more secure fit. For instructions, see Change the band.

  4. Slide the loose end of the band through the second loop until it lies flat on your wrist. Make sure the band isn’t too tight. Wear the band loosely enough that it can move back and forth on your wrist.

For greater accuracy, you must specify whether you wear Versa 4 on your dominant or non-dominant hand. Your dominant hand is the one you use for writing and eating. To start, the Wrist setting is set to non-dominant. If you wear Versa 4 on your dominant hand, change the Wrist setting in the Fitbit app:

From the Today tab in the Fitbit app, tap your profile picture then Versa 4 tile then Wrist then Dominant.

Wear and care tips


  • Clean your band and wrist regularly with a soap-free cleanser.
  • If your watch gets wet, remove and dry it completely after your activity.
  • Take your watch off from time to time.
  • If you notice skin irritation, remove your watch and contact customer support. For more information, see fitbit.com/productcare.
