Smartwatches have quickly become affordable and commonplace within a few years of them coming into trend. Fitbit is an American digital health and fitness brand that has been active in the market since the beginning and has steadily grown to sell millions of its smartwatches worldwide — the latest being Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit Sense.
If you’re one of the many Fitbit users who’re sporting the Versa but are having issues with the watch’s software — glitches or bugs — you might already know that resetting the watch is one of the quickest ways to get rid of the errors, and here we’ve explained how to do that quickly.
In this article, we’ve explained the following topics related to resetting a Fitbit Versa.

How to force reset Fitbit Versa?
The normal Shutdown or Factory reset method might not work if the screen is damaged or not working properly. In such cases, we can force reset the device.
The force reset method for Versa Sense, Versa 3, Versa 2, Versa Lite, Versa Ionic and Versa Blaze is the same.
Step 1: Click and hold the single button on the left side panel for about 10-15 seconds, or until the Fitbit logo appears.
Step 2: Release the button after the Fitbit logo appears.
The process auto-completes, and the device is reset.
Once the watch reboots after reset, you will be prompted to set up your device from the Fitbit app. For the Fitbit Versa, there are three buttons primarily available.
- Hold down all three buttons for about 10-15 seconds, or until the Fitbit logo appears.
- Release the bottom right button while still holding down the other two buttons.
- Release all buttons once you feel a strong vibration.
Your Fitbit Versa is now reset and cleared of any personal data previously stored.
