How To Turn-Off And Restart Fitbit Versa 2

The majority of us will keep our Fitbit Versa on our wrist at all times, day and night, only removing it when we really need to, such as when charging it or shutting it down (which, have you ever done? Of course not, you have searched the Internet to find out how to even do it).

A Fitbit is constantly tracking what we do, from our movements to biometrics, always keeping up-to-date with how many steps we have completed, our heart rate and whether we have been active enough, so it is no surprise that a Fitbit is barely, and dare we say rarely, switched off.

How to Turn-Off and Restart Fitbit Versa

Even so, there is nothing wrong with turning a smart watch off every once in a while. Sometimes just switching it off and putting it back on again can help conserve its battery, and maybe you need to give it a restart – it happens.

Not only that, maybe, just maybe, you might want a break from a watch keeping track of your every movement and that is totally fine.

Restarting The Fitbit Vera 2

Restarting your device can also be worthwhile if you are struggling with some actions such as:

  • It will not sync
  • It will not track steps or data
  • It will not respond to swipes or taps
  • It will not show reminders or notifications

When you restart your device, it will not delete any data, but should help with any issues you are having. To do this:

  1. Press and hold the back and bottom buttons for 10 seconds.
  2. When you see the Fitbit logo release your fingers from the buttons

Now you should be able to switch your Fitbit Versa 2 off, on and restart it.
