How to Pair Fitbit Versa with iPhone

Hey there! It seems like the second version of the Fitbit Versa is giving the Apple Watch a real challenge. It’s definitely one of the top fitness and health smartwatches on the market, keeping a close eye on your daily exercise routines. But how do you connect this smartwatch to your iPhone?

If everything goes smoothly, you shouldn’t have any issues connecting your Versa through the Fitbit app. However, some users have reported difficulties and struggle to get the two devices to communicate. So, I’m here to help with some troubleshooting tips.

Setting up the Fitbit App

First things first, these steps will work for the Fitbit Versa Lite, Versa, and all other activity trackers in the company’s lineup. I’m assuming you’ve already downloaded the app and now just need to pair it with your smartwatch.

First things first

Open up the Fitbit app and pick “Join Fitbit” if you don’t have an account yet. Choose “Log in” if you’ve used Fitbit before.


Step 2

Alright, now I’m going to show you all the Fitbit devices you can choose from. Take a look at the options and when you’re ready, just tap on either the Versa or Versa Lite. Once you’ve made your decision, go ahead and hit the “Set Up” button at the bottom of the menu.

Step 3

Alright, so here’s what you gotta do. First things first, give me your name, email, and pick a password for your Fitbit account. Once you’re done with that, make sure to tick the box that says you agree to the terms and services. Then just hit the Next button, and we’re good to go.

Trick: By default, the option to receive emails and notifications about Fitbit promotions is already selected. Don’t worry, you can easily uncheck the box to prevent these unwanted messages from cluttering your inbox.

Step 4

Now, let’s get started! Tap on “Let’s Go” and provide Fitbit with some information about yourself. They’ll need your date of birth, height, weight, and you’ll also need to agree to their additional terms and services. Once you’ve completed this step, you can move on to pairing your Versa.

Once your account is all set up, the app will automatically guide you to the pairing window. The process is simple and easy to follow, but it’s worth taking a closer look at the steps.

Step 1

Make sure your Versa is on its charging cradle. It should stay there until the pairing process is complete. It’s important to align the connectors correctly and pinch the bottom of the cradle to secure the connection.


Step 2

To get started, place Versa next to your iPhone and check if Bluetooth is turned on. You’ll see an icon that looks like a search. Within just a few seconds, Versa should connect to your phone.

Step 3

Once the connection is established, your Versa may show a code. If it does, you’ll need to enter that code into the app to complete the pairing process. After that, simply tap “Next” in the setup screens that follow, and you’re all set!

Pairing Fitbit Versa If You Already Have the App

For those who already use the Fitbit app, pairing Versa is even easier. Just tap on your profile icon in the upper left corner, then select “Set Up a Device.” From there, choose Versa or Versa Lite, and follow the on-screen instructions. It’s the same process as described above.


Troubleshooting Pairing Issues with the Fitbit Versa

Fixing problems with pairing your Versa is actually pretty simple, even if you’re not tech-savvy. Just start with the basics like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and go from there. Here’s a quick guide on what you can do.


First, open the Control Center and tap on the Bluetooth icon to turn it off. Wait for about 15 seconds, then turn Bluetooth back on and try pairing your Versa again.

Also, make sure no other devices like headphones or speakers are connected to your iPhone while you’re trying to pair it with the Versa. Go to Settings, find Bluetooth, and disconnect any connected devices.


Both your Fitbit Versa and iPhone need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for pairing to work. Use the Fitbit app to see if the watch is connected to the right network, and do the same through your iPhone’s Settings app.

While you’re at it, it’s a good idea to check the speed and stability of your Wi-Fi connection. It doesn’t need to be super fast, but if it’s too slow, it might interfere with the pairing process. Restarting your router or modem can help resolve this.

Restarting Your Devices

If Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are working fine and you’re still having trouble pairing, try restarting both your Versa and iPhone. To restart the Versa, press and hold the Select and Back buttons until you see the Fitbit logo on the screen. These buttons are located at the bottom right and bottom left of the watch.

To restart your iPhone, press and hold the Side button along with one of the volume rockers. If your iPhone has a Home button, press that and the Side button together.

Preparing for Your Morning Run

In addition to the tips above, make sure both the Fitbit app and your Versa are up to date with the latest software version. When updating the firmware on the watch, make sure it’s plugged in. But even if the Versa acts up, don’t worry too much – it shouldn’t be too difficult to fix.
