With a growing stable of smartwatches, Fitbit is quickly becoming a more popular platform for people to track their health from – but the insights you get from glancing at the device largely depend on your chosen watch face.
Called Clock Faces, and available to change only through the companion app, Fitbit now has a large collection of retro and analogue options for you to pick from. No matter if you own a regular Fitbit Versa or Versa Lite Edition, you’re able to trawl through the library and switch from a fitness-focused face to a traditional one in mere seconds.

Below, we’ve picked out some of the best Fitbit Versa watch faces available right now. However, be sure to check back, as the list of options is growing, with more and more developers submitting fresh creations to Fitbit.
Hot smartwatch deals
Similar to the FlashRing and Moment Clocks faces from the Fitbit Ionic, About Time gives you a simple layout that includes four stats icons – steps, active minutes, heart rate and calories – below the time and date. You won’t be able to customise these, unfortunately, but they do give you a stylish and reliable option to keep coming back to when you’re done getting creative with other faces.
Just like the Apple Watch, the Fitbit Versa also allows you to use your favourite photos as your watch face. Photographs allows you to take any image within your smartphone’s camera roll, pinch and resize to your taste and then add it to the smartwatch.
Unfortunately, this face doesn’t come with the option to customise the placing of the date and time, or indeed the color or metrics shown, but it’s definitely one worth exploring if you don’t necessarily need to see your stats every time you flick your wrist.
One of our favourites from the Ionic also makes it across to the Versa, with Arrows allowing you to get a clean, colorful look at your day. You’ll get six stats spots available on the face, with the metrics and colors of the top four arrows all easily changed. Even the background color can be toggled, making this one of the more customisable options within the store. You’ll initially get a 24-hour free trial with Arrows on your wrist before having to subscribe.
One of the latest faces to come to the Fitbit’s Clock Face collection is thanks to a partnership with Snap Inc. and Bitmoji. Now, Fitbit users are able to link their Bitmoji to their Fitbit account.
You’ll have to sign up through the Fitbit app once the face is downloaded, but once it is your avatar will continually change pose throughout the day. You can also teleport a new version over, if you’ve made some changes. The background color can also be tweaked, as well as the date and month format.
Essentially a more detailed version of the Fitbit’s Boxy face from the Ionic, Sliding Puzzle lets you interact with the tiles in order to change their color or rearrange by tapping the blank space. And besides that, the style still gives you a glanceable look at all your key stats, with the settings section allowing you to set the clock preference.
As the name suggests, this Versa face is all about the weather, showing you the current temperature alongside a scenic, geometric-style background. You can even display some fitness stats. It’s one of the best looking watch faces currently available, but it does come at a small price.
You can live with the face for 24 hours, but then you’ll need to pay $1 to unlock it forever. It also takes a bit longer than your average Fitbit watch face to download, but it’s well worth the wait.
Fancy freshening up the usual grids and tiles with something a little more creative? Look no further than Starry, a night-themed face that lets you customize the background of the night sky and the stars, while also receiving an insight into battery through the moon in the top right and how close you are to crossing your activity goal (either steps, floors, calories, distance or active minutes) through the planet in the bottom left.
Heart rate monitor
When Fitbit OS 2.0 launched, it brought with it the new Today dashboard, making it easier to view resting and average heart rate data. Heart rate monitor embraces that data and takes full advantage of the Versa’s screen to display HR readings from the last seven minutes.
When your heart rate spikes or drops, it changes color to indicate the different heart rate zones. It looks like it’s been inspired by the graphs used inside the Fitbit companion app, and if you care about keeping an eye on your ticker, it’s an essential download.
The dizzying heights of the World Cup may now be a distant memory, but you can still opt for the ‘Football’ face and personalize it to your favorite nation.
There’s not a whole lot of interaction available – you simply touch the ball to score a goal – but you do get a quick look at your steps, calories burned and battery percentage, along with the time. This isn’t one you’re going to sport all the time, but at least consider it as a move of solidarity when games are going on.
Sometimes you just want that data front and centre, and easy to glance at when you look down at your wrist. This is one watch face that certainly delivers on that front. If you want to know if you’re nailing your steps or need to keep closer tabs on your resting heart rate, this big, bold Versa-exclusive face is one of the slickest options to get onto your smartwatch.
Pink Floyd fans will know the inspiration for this Versa watch face, but it’s more than just a simple homage to that iconic album cover. The colors can be configured to indicate the time and date, with the colored section showing your activity progress. It’s one of the best examples of a face that displays data in a really unique way.
This is one from the Fitbit Labs, the place where Fitbit tests experimental features, apps and watch faces. Mood Log is a really simple looking analogue watch face that lets you toggle between HR, calories burned, steps and active minute stats.
The special feature here is the ability to leave markers to indicate your mood. You can set up custom reminders to make sure you log your mood and energy levels, and then you can check your data over on your mood log page on the Fitbit web dashboard.
Retro Sunset V
This 1980s inspired watch face just looks great. Tapping in the centre switches between all that important health data, including steps, distance and calories burned. It first appeared on the Ionic, and now it’s adapted for the Versa and is one of the best to show off the vibrant screen of Fitbit’s smartwatch family.
One that gives you the option to have an analogue or digital styling, Flux also brings one of the most adjustable faces in Fitbit’s arsenal. You can change the color and set the opacity of every strip, enable a battery indicator, time counter and even flatten the design entirely. If nothing else, this one will definitely keep you busy while you fine-tune the bars to suit your taste.
It’s another retro, 80s inspired entry that we love just because it looks the part on that curvy Versa screen. The flowing, animated streams of color only come alive when you wake up the watch, plus you can adjust the data displayed. The focus is on time, as opposed to fitness, but that’s quite alright with us.
This Versa watch face is dominated by an analogue face and three icons down the side that, when tapped, launch you into a chart plotting your physical, emotional and intellectual moments over a 30-day period.
We’re not entirely sure how it achieves that, but what we do know is that you have a great deal of colors to pick from if you want to change the look of the color on pretty much every element of this unique watch face.
