The most common Fitbit problems and how to fix them

If you are looking for how to reset Fitbit Charge and Versa, this means that your Fitbit is experiencing issues. So, if the issues are anything like:

  • Unable to sync.
  • It does not react when you press the buttons, tap it, or try to slide your finger across the screen.
  • It’s charged, but it won’t turn on.
  • It does not follow your footsteps or other statistics.

First, we would recommend a restart. You can read more about how to do a restart on the below article:

If the Restart didn’t help you can try the factory reset. But please keep in mind that your apps, stored data, personal information, credit and debit cards, and saved settings will be deleted from your device if you perform a Factory reset:

  1. Press and hold the three buttons on your Fitbit for up to 20 seconds.
  2. Once the logo is shown on the screen and then disappear, release the bottom button and hold the other two until you hear a strong vibration. This indicates the reset has started, so you have to release the other two buttons.
  3. This procedure can take several seconds and from time to time the watch will reset to zero showing the logo and the site.
