Tools Needed:

  • Replacement strap
  • Spring bar tool (optional)

Removing the Old Strap: To remove the old strap from your Fitbit Versa 2, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the spring bar on the back of your Fitbit Versa 2.
  2. Use a spring bar tool to release the bar or insert a paper clip or toothpick into the hole on the side of the spring bar and press down.
  3. Pull the strap off of the spring bar. Repeat the process on the other side.

Attaching the New Strap: To attach a new strap to your Fitbit Versa 2, follow these steps:

  1. Insert one end of the spring bar into the hole on the Fitbit Versa 2 and pull it down. Note that some straps have a lever like in the picture above, which removes the need for using a spring bar tool.
  2. Slide the new strap onto the spring bar and release it.
  3. Repeat the process on the other side.

Adjusting the New Band: To ensure a comfortable fit with your new Fitbit Versa band, follow these steps:

  1. Fit the strap to your wrist and adjust it as necessary.
  2. If the strap is too loose, you may need to remove some links with your spring bar tool.
  3. Save any removed links in case you need to make the strap bigger again in the future.
