I wear the watch mainly for the steps and for most of the clock face options, the steps is "grey" like mentioned previously and it is impossible to see outside. This is even more frustrating because then I have to mess around with the app to change it back.

Personally I wish fitbit just allowed us to make user customized ones, I mostly like the retro double stat but tap to change stats is too annoying.
Okay, but when is Fitbit going to allow us to customize our stats and apps? When will this issue which has over a thousand complaints be resolved? I changed to the new Retro Double Stat which shows the time, date, steps, and heart rate on my phone as the clock.
However, on the Charge 3, it starts with time, date, floors and minutes. I have to tap it to get the clock on the phone - which shows what I really want time, steps, and HR. Is this correct - to have the floors and minutes on the initial face? Why would I want this? I must be missing something. Getting an error when I try to change clock face. Now there is no clock face. Any help appreciated. Retro Double Stat! The best. Edit: After the latest firmware update the clock display appears centered on the Retro Double Stat clock face.
On the Stats Heavy clock face, it displays 2 numbers for miles separated by a comma. What do those numbers mean?

I hope you keep enjoying it. Don't forget the original charge 2 also shows the number of steps in the current hour, critical for Reminders to Move. I get half my daily steps from RTM, and it seems like it's not available on the charge 3.Getting started with the Fitbit Charge 3 may be straightforward, but there are plenty of features that lie within the company's latest fitness tracker that are waiting to be discovered.
And while it may not be as feature-packed as Fitbit's two smartwatches, the Ionic and Versathe third-generation fitness band still has plenty of new features to take advantage of.
After two years out in the cold, the Charge has been upgraded with waterproofing, contactless payment support and an improved battery life. But how do you get the most out of the Fitbit Charge 3? Well, luckily for you, we've rounded up some top tips to help you out. Read on below for everything you need to know. Fitbit guide : Fitbit smartwatches and trackers compared. On the Charge 3, you have fewer options than the mountain of Clock Faces developed by both Fitbit and third-party developers on the Ionic and Versa, but that doesn't mean there isn't still a healthy selection of monochrome options to choose from.
If you want to mix things up from digital to analogue, want to emphasise a different tracked metric or simply fancy changing your look, Fitbit currently offers seven faces on the Charge 3. We expect more to drop as the tracker grows older, but, for now, you can change things by heading to the Fitbit app.
From there, click the device icon in the top left, tap through on Clock Faces and toggle between the My Clock and All Clocks tabs and decide how you want to customise the screen.
Whether you like having your wrist gadget act as a second screen to your smartphone, or you want to turn off all notifications, we've got you covered. Head to the Fitbit app, tap through the Notifications tab and begin toggling exactly what you want buzzed through to your Charge 3. As shown above, this can be done to give the green or red flag to all your calls, texts and calendar pings, and you can select from your list of apps, too.
This is really more of a general Fitbit tip, as opposed to a Charge 3 one, but it's essential for receiving the best accuracy. Now, there's plenty more to focus on with this tracker, but steps will no doubt be at the core of most people's daily tracking picture. However, Fitbit estimates what each step looks like based on your height and gender, meaning those with naturally big or small strides may be seeing inaccurate information.
To edit this, tap the card in the top right of the Fitbit app, scroll down to Advanced Settings and tap through on Stride Length. As we say, this is automatically set by Fitbit, but you can manually enter the centimetre equivalent of your walking and running strides. Wondering how to work it out?
It's simple — just head down to a running track or somewhere that you know the exact distance of, count your steps as you complete that distance and then divide the total distance taken by the number of steps to get your stride length. You're also going to need to tell Fitbit which wrist your device is sitting on, in order to improve accuracy. To do this, head to the Charge 3 icon, select Wrist and then whichever wrist your device is strapped to. If you're anything like us, you'll find great satisfaction in replacing your alarm clock with a much friendlier buzz on the wrist from the Charge 3.
Sure, you can always use your phone, but that almost always leads to you spending 45 minutes every morning catching up on Twitter, Instagram or, heaven forbid, work emails, before you even make it out of bed.
If you're setting up a new alarm, you'll want to head to the Charge 3 settings section, hit Silent Alarms and then choose your time and which days you want it to sound on. The Charge 3 already boasts week-long battery life out of the box, but, as always, there are ways to extend this even further with a few neat tricks. The first thing to consider tweaking is how often you sync your device.
This can be turned off through the Charge 3 section of the Fitbit app, though it does mean you'll have to manually sync the device in order to see your progress up in the app. Notifications, too, can also be reduced in order to save some life.Can you please update the Fitbit app to allow the user to create their own clock face design.
If we had the ability to create our own clock face using whatever fields and font size we want you would finally be able to satisfy everybody's clock face requests. They don't even need to make it easy; let us tweak some painful ugly code if need be - we'll do it to get the watch faces with the information we wanted to see. Let me know if you need anything else.
If you like something I recommended, I encourage you to mark that reply as "Best Answer". Indeed I've seen that; I'd like to specifically advocate for allowing us to make our own even if it's not quite as well supported as Versa and Ionic. I'm quite content to tinker with a limited toolset.
Now if you want to share more ideas with us, feel free to visit our feature suggestions board and do it. Catch you later. What would be best is if you made USER customizable watch faces where the user could at very minimum choose which stats appear.
For example, I love the layout of the charge 3 "retro double stat" face, but I can't choose which stats are shown together so I still end up cycling through the options to see 2 stats. I would really like a clock face that shows the time, date, heart rate, and calories burned all on the same face.
I know that it would be awesome to have a feature like this for the Charge 3. Keep the stepping up! I appreciate the Charge 3 isn't exactly a smart watch in the sense that the more expensive models are and so isn't running a FitbitOS, but it would be nice to at least make the watch face configurable even if we can't design them from scratch like you can for the other models with Fitbit Studio. I think being able to choose or make your own faces would be perfect.
I like a lot of details and I would like the time with seconds, date with month, day of the week, and my steps or heart rate. It would make my life so much easier. I agree this is ridiculous I used the same clock face on the Charge 2 for years with no 0, now on the Charge 3 using the same clock face "retro double stack" they have added the zero, whoever made that decision should be fired!

I loved the watch face in Charge2 where top row was time digital and under it was date.Is the charge 3 easy to use or should I stick with charge 2? Will the 3 keep a constant heart rate? Oh wow, those are so disappointing!
Thanks for your interest in Charge 3. Also, thanks for taking the time to post your inquiries about this tracker. Yes, those are the current clock faces that are available for Charge 3. That way you can support the idea. I think this is not an impossible request. Regarding the heart rate, Charge 3 should provide you with a constant heart rate reading; just as your Charge 2 does. It is easy to use; please feel free to read the Charge 3 User Manual for more details. Hope this helps. Keep me posted!
Like my response? Vote for it! Also, accept as solution! I have attached the 5 crappy clock face options fitbit is putting with the Charge 3. In the second photo you can see 6 ideas I came up with for fitbit to consider. I hope they are listening to all the feedback!
And none have any sort of date option? A bit of a disappointment. I like your 1 and 2 designs Heck, Honestly I'd be happy if they just brought back the Charge 2 faces.
That would bring the total to over views and maybe we can get a software update date to get this fixed. Thebor fixed it in seconds with his recommendations below I've been waiting for the charge 3 and finally the five faces are out.
Wow, what a disappointment. I need a clock, day of the week and date on the same screen like the charge 2. It's not there in spite of what fitbit customer service representatives promised for the 3.
The fitbit concept is terrific especially for retirees, especially those who neglect exercise but our group decided "NO". Thank you appreciate that! Yes would love to purchase a Charge 3, but the Home Screen needs a lot more work! Hope they can make some improvements soon! I like those clock face suggestions much better than the current ones. They would be very useful.
I agree, these are awful. I'd really like a choice that doesn't have my heartrate displayed all the time.
