How to Change the Clock Face on Fitbit Luxe

Now that you know that you certainly can change the clock face on your Fitbit Luxe, let’s find out how to actually do it! 

The good news is, it’s incredibly easy: in order to change the clock face on your Fitbit Luxe, first you need to have your smart device close to the Fitbit. 

From there follow the instructions below: 

  • Open the Fitbit app on your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. 
  • Click on the TODAY tab. 
  • Select your PROFILE PICTURE. 
  • Tap GALLERY and then CLOCKS. 
  • Select your favorite clock face and select INSTALL. 

Once you have installed the option of your choice, all you need to do is click and the face of your Fitbit Luxe will change!

Of course, changing the clock face will not change the alert style of your  Fitbit Luxe. If you would like to learn if you can increase or decrease the size of the font, change the color theme, or set any other personal preferences, you will learn everything you need to know in the following sections!

How to Set Personal Preferences on the Fitbit Luxe

There are several small but important changes that you can make to your Fitbit Luxe to personalize it to your specific taste. 

General Settings

For example, you may want to change the brightness, screen wake, or screen timeout settings. If so, you can find them by navigating to the SETTINGS with just a swipe down on the clock screen. There you will see the various options to change each of these settings. 

Font Size

It’s important to note that while Fitbit had promised users that they would be releasing an update which offered the option to change the font size on the Luxe, it hasn’t yet happened. So for now, the font must stay the same. 

Notification Settings

However, if you would like to adjust your notifications and how often they arrive, what they look like, and much more, you can do so you can open the app on your smartphone and pull up the NOTIFICATIONS menu and adjust them accordingly. 

If you need a little more help with your settings, you can check out this online users manual that Fitbit has provided for specific details. 

Now, while the Fitbit is famously user-friendly, there is a common problem that occurs when it comes to changing your clock face. 

Troubleshooting your Fitbit Luxe When Changing the Clock Face

Some users have reported that when they try to follow the directions listed above, their Fitbit Luxe responds with an error message like “clock error” or “unable to install.” If you see one of these on your display, there are a few simple solutions you can try. 

  • The first resolution to try whenever working with tech devices is to simply restart it. 
  • If that doesn’t work you should force close the Fitbit app and then reopen it. 
  • Make sure both the Fitbit and your phone are fully charged. 
  • Uninstall and reinstall the Fitbit app. 
  • Ensure the clock face permission is set to on. 

If all else fails, you can always factory reset your Fitbit Luxe, but remember that means you will have to reset all of your settings and preferences and resign in to your Fitbit app to connect the Luxe.
