One of the basic things that you must know about your Fitbit Versa is its battery level. If you have no idea how to check the battery level or charge the device, follow our instructions below.

How to check battery level on Fitbit Versa

You can check battery level anytime by going to the clock face screen and swiping up. The battery level indicator should be at the upper left corner. 

Keep in mind that if the battery is showing a red indicator, that means that the device has less than 24 hours remaining power. If the device is critically low, the red battery indicator will flash. Be sure to charging the device to avoid temporarily losing functionality. It’s not advisable that you let the battery go out or drain to zero all the time. 

If you lose wifi connectivity when the battery percentage is at 25% or less, that’s normal. That’s one way for the watch to conserve power.

How to attach charger to Fitbit Versa

Your Fitbit Versa comes with a bulky charger. It’s one of the biggest objects in the box and you’ll not miss it. Knowing how to charge your Fitbit Versa properly is important if you’re still getting familiar with your gadget. Your Versa does not have a typical charging port with holes in it. Instead, its charging port is a shallow set of connectors at the back that connects to the charger. 

To charge your Fitbit Versa, follow these steps:

  1. Take out charger and connect it to a USB port on your computer, a UL-certified USB wall charger, or another low-energy device.
  2. Pinch the sides of the charger to open up a little bit.
  3. Put your Fitbit Versa in the charging cradle. Before doing this, make sure that the pins on the charging cradle are aligned with the copper contacts on the back of your Versa. 
  4. If successfully connected, you should see the charging percentage on the screen.
