How to factory reset Fitbit Versa?

Fitbit is an American digital health and fitness brand that has launched a series of smart wearables – trackers and smartwatches – the most recent being Fitbit Sense and Versa 3. These devices essentially capture your daily activities like step counts, sleep hours and also calories burnt.

Performing a factory reset or hard reset restores the original system of the device. It erases all stored data in the process. If there are unsolvable issues after performing restart and sync, or you want to dispose of or exchange the watch, performing a factory reset is a viable option.

How to Hard reset Fitbit?

When the screen fails to function properly, or the factory reset option is unavailable, a hard reset is another alternative. Hard reset typically works the same way as a factory reset, but with the hardware or buttons in the case of a smartwatch.

The hard reset method for Fitbit Sense, Versa 3, Versa 2, Versa Lite, Versa Ionic and Versa Blaze is the same.

For the case of a Fitbit Versa, the process is slightly different.

Once the watch reboots, ideally, you should be prompted for setting up the device. If there is no such prompt received, retry the regular Factory reset option from the watch settings.
