How to easily reset your Fitbit Versa | Digital Trends Spanish


If your Fitbit Versa is not working properly, restarting it may be the solution. This action can be useful in case your device does not respond as it should or if it does, but slowly. It can also be useful when it does not sync with your mobile device or if it fails with functions such as step counting or receiving notifications.

If you are going to sell, trade or give away your Fitbit Versa you will also need to perform a factory reset to remove all your information, credit cards and preferences. In this tutorial we will explain how to restart your device to fix all these problems, as well as how to factory reset your Fitbit Versa before getting rid of it.

How to reset a Fitbit Versa

To restart your Fitbit Versa you have two options: with the left button of the watch or through the Settings menu.

To do it from the Settings menu:

  1. Access the device’s configuration options.
  2. Scroll down and tap About.
  3. Under that menu select To turn off.
  4. Wait for the reset process to finish.

If you have a problem with your Fitbit screen (for example, it does not respond accurately to touches), you can also reset it using the left button on the box.

  1. Press and hold the left button for 10-15 seconds (until the Fitbit logo appears).
  2. Release the button once the logo appears.
  3. Wait for the reboot process to complete.

How to factory reset a Fitbit Versa

It is very important that you factory reset any personal technology device before exchanging, reselling or donating it. The reasons are not only related to privacy, but also because at the same time you facilitate the next user the process of setting up the device. To perform a full factory reset you have to do the following:

  1. Access the device’s configuration options.
  2. Scroll down and tap About.
  3. Under that menu, select Factory reset (can also be called Delete user data)
  4. Confirm that you want to perform a factory reset
  5. Wait for the reset process to complete.

If the screen of your Fitbit does not work, you can reset the factory settings with the button Behind. As explained by the moderator of a Fitbit community chat room, Here are the steps to factory reset your Versa using this method:

  1. Look for the back button.
  2. Hold down the button for about 8 seconds.
  3. Wait for the Fitbit logo to disappear.
  4. Release the button quickly (just for a second or two).
  5. Press and hold the back button again until you feel another, longer vibration.
  6. Wait for the factory reset process to start.
