The Fitbit Versa is considered as the best smartwatch that you can get for under $200. This device has several health and fitness features that make it compete even with the popular Apple Smartwatch.

If you have recently purchased the Versa then the first thing that you need to do is to set it up. Listed below are the steps that you need to perform in order to use the device properly.

How To Set Up Fitbit Versa

  • Open the Fitbit app and tap Join Fitbit.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to create a Fitbit account
  • The personal information you provide during setup is used to calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which helps determine your estimated calorie expenditure and your body mass index (BMI). For more information, see How does Fitbit estimate how many calories I’ve burned? This information is private unless you change your privacy settings and opt to share it with your Fitbit friends.
  • You  will be prompted to connect your watch to your Wi-Fi network. This is needed to  set up your watch, download playlists, download apps from the Fitbit App Gallery, and for faster firmware and Fitbit OS updates. For best results, connect your watch to your home or work Wi-Fi network.
