How to Restart Your Fitbit Trackers

Ideally, you shouldn’t ever have to restart your Fitbit. But things happen. Each model has a different method to initiate a restart, and usually, the process only takes a few minutes. The following problems could potentially be fixed by restarting your Fitbit.

  • Your tracker won’t sync.
  • Your tracker doesn’t respond to button presses, taps, or swipes.
  • Your tracker won’t turn on.
  • Your tracker isn’t tracking your activity.

The benefit of restarting your Fitbit is it won’t delete your tracked activity. However, if your tracker stores your calls, texts, or calendar notifications, those will be deleted when you restart.
