How to factory reset your Fitbit

Most of the time, our smart devices just work as intended, which is kind of miraculous if you think about it. However, there are occasionally times when your trusty gadget, be that a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or smartwatch, just won't cooperate. It's particularly frustrating when it happens to your fitness tracker or smartwatch, as that means that you'll not only miss out on notifications, but your crucial step counts and health metrics won't be tracked. When this happens with your Fitbit, you can simply reboot it. Sound complicated? It's not really. We'll show you how to factory reset your Fitbit tracker or smartwatch.

How to factory reset your Fitbit tracker

  1. Tap on your Fitbit tracker screen, or squeeze the side or capacitive button to wake it.
  2. Swipe through the onscreen menu options/apps until you get to the Settings app.
  3. Tap on Settings.

  4. Swipe through the options and tap on Reboot device.

  5. On the Inspire, press and hold on the screen for three seconds.

  6. On the Charge, tap the checkmark after you've tapped on Reboot Device.

This process will be similar on all newer Fitbit trackers, such as the Inspire 2 and Charge 4 devices. Rebooting your tracker will generally relieve any hiccups or hangups you had been having, but it's important to note that you may lose some of that day's data if it hadn't previously been synced to your Fitbit app.

How to factory reset your Fitbit smartwatch

  1. Tap on your Fitbit smartwatch screen, or squeeze the capacitive button to wake it.

  2. Swipe through the apps and tap on Settings

  3. Scroll through the options and tap on About device.

  4. Scroll through the options and tap on Factory reset.

  5. Tap Yes to confirm factory reset.

This process will be similar on all newer Fitbit smartwatches such as the Versa 3 and Sense. You can always remove a watch from your Fitbit app, but this will not factory reset the device. That needs to be done on the watch or tracker itself.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
