Look at the inside of your Fitbit Versa band and locate the two quick-release pins connected to either side of the Fitbit watch case.
Holding the Fitbit watch case in one hand, press the release pin (shown in blue) with the tip of your finger and pull the band away from the watch case. It should release easily. Repeat this process for the other side of the band.
When you’re ready to attach the new wristband, check the position of the watch case to your wrist and make sure you’re attaching the band with the correct orientation.
Hold the watch case so the inside is facing you. Now, hold the band at a right angle and place the band’s pin (on the side opposite the quick-release lever) into the bottom notch on the watch case.
- Press down on the quick release pin to insert the band completely and attach it to the top of the watch case clip until it snaps into place. Repeat this process for the other side of the band.
