The Omnitrix looks like a very big wristwatch, primarily black and grey in color, with a grey dial in the middle (like a watch face) which has a green hourglass shape. When Ben selects his aliens it shows the alien's silhouette.
The Omnitrix was upgraded by Ben using Upgrade in Omni-Tricked: Part 4. The white chords and dial were silver and green. The four buttons on the faceplate were replaced with grey squares. There was an additional band of dark grey running around the center of the Omnitrix, the activation button was on this strip.
As of Innervasion Part 5: High Override, the rim of the dial is white, and the squares on the last upgrade are replaced by green arrows, and the area behind the hourglass is now the same color as the new wristband: grey. The outer band is black with green arrows, and the sides of the dial and the ends of the wristband are silver. The top of the grey wristband has a green hourglass underneath the dial. The top of the dial is now black. Unlike the Omnitrix's last two versions, the third version does not have its tube-like circuitry.
- It contains the DNA of thousands of aliens and can transform its user into one of them for a limited period of time. Only ten of these DNA samples can be available at any given time, as only ten can be loaded into the loading bay.
- The DNA samples are contained in chambers. The device had bonded to Ben's genetic code, so only a biological relative of the Tennyson family can become an alien by running through those tubes.
- If Ben knew how to cycle in new chambers and replace the others, he could access the entire cache of aliens. However, he hasn’t figured out the proper sequencing to remove it from semi to fully automatic.[DR 1]
- The upgraded Omnitrix allowed the user to transform into enhanced versions of the aliens with the use of energy from Shock Rock.
- When the Omnitrix rebooted itself for the second time, the Omni-Enhancements were removed.
Omnitrix Symbol Position
- The Omnitrix symbol is generally located on the chest of the transformations.
- The Omnitrix may or may not give clothing to a transformation. Even when it does, the clothing seems to be random:
- Diamondhead has black-and-yellow clothing.
- Grey Matter has green-and-black clothing.
- XLR8 has black-and-blue clothing.
- Four Arms and Gax have white-and-black clothing, similar to 10/11-year-old Ben's transformations from the original series and Omniverse flashbacks.
- Slapback has white, blue, and black clothing.
- The rest appear to be unclothed, similar to 15/16-year-old Ben's transformations from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.
- If fiddled with, the Omnitrix can start turning users into hybrids of multiple aliens.
- The Omnitrix is vulnerable to electromagnetic interferences, such as that created by Polar and Solar Twain, so the user will randomly switch from one alien to another and/or experience delayed transformations until the electric/magnetic interference is gone.
- Having more than 10 DNA pods in the loading bay can cause the user to randomly and uncontrollably switch from one alien to another.
- When struck by lightning in close proximity with Xingo, Omnitrix aliens and their powers can become cartoonish.
- If the Omnitrix symbol is removed while the user is transformed, the ability to transform back to normal is removed.

- ↑ Gax was accidentally unlocked by Vilgax. He was locked again when Vilgax absorbed his DNA in Omni-Tricked: Part 3
- ↑ Upgrade was removed when he merged with the Omnitrix and fused with Ben's DNA (thus becoming Glitch) in order to avoid destruction in Omni-Tricked: Part 4.
- ↑ Appoplexian DNA was used by Dr. Animo in Animorphosis even though Rath was locked during Season 2.

- The Omnitrix contains DNA samples from all over the universe including every alien catalogued in the Omnitrixes from the classic continuity[DR 3], even if most of them will not be appearing in the show.
- Leaked concept artwork of Omnitrix genetic material features (from left to right):[note 1]
- Stinkfly, Shock Rock, Heatblast, Cannonbolt, XLR8, and Gax in the top row.
- Overflow, Diamondhead, Four Arms, Wildvine, Grey Matter, and Upgrade in the middle row.
