How To Reset Your Fitbit Flex To Its Factory Settings?

If your Fitbit Flex is not functioning as it should, you might have to refresh the software and make sure your tracker is accurately monitoring your calorie burn, steps taken, and other biometric statistics.

The solution to this is a fast reset. When you reset your Fitbit Flex, it takes it back to its factory settings, making the software begin to function as it should again. It will, however, get rid of all of your data, so make sure you do not reset a Flex except the device is really malfunctioning, or unless you plan to sell the tracker, give it out or have it returned to the company.

If you wish to reset a Fitbit Flex, an official Fitbit charger is required, plus a USB power outlet, and an effective paperclip that has been unfolded to free up a straight segment (or an identical tool.) Lets elaborate:

How Can I Reset My Fitbit Flex?

  1. Get the Fitbit Flex connected to its charger.
  2. On the back of the charger, get the paperclip inserted into the little hole.
  3. Cautiously, press down for about 4 seconds.
  4. Disconnect the Fitbit from the charger.

The unit will be taken back to its factory settings. Reconnect it with your phone or PC to be certain, and make sure the reset process is repeated if it fails to work after your first try.

And you are done.

More About Fitbit

Fitbit, Inc. is an American company headquartered in San Francisco, California. Its products are activity trackers, wireless-enabled wearable technology devices that measure data such as the number of steps walked, heart rate, quality of sleep, steps climbed, and other personal metrics involved in fitness. Before October 2007, the company was previously named Healthy Metrics Research, Inc. Some evidence has found that the use of similar devices results in less weight loss rather than more.

According to an IDC report published on December 3, 2018, Fitbit is considered the third largest wearable company in shipments as of the third quarter of 2018, behind Xiaomi and Apple.

In those who are overweight or obese, a 2016 study indicates that the use of wearable technology combined with standard behavioral interventions results in less rather than more weight loss after two years of use when compared to usual weight loss interventions. There was no evidence that the devices altered the amount that people exercised or their diet compared to control. It is unclear whether these devices affect the amount of physical activity children engage in.

Fitbit has won numerous awards, including runner-up at TechCrunch50 in 2008 and Innovation honoree and best in the Health & Wellness category at CES 2009. In 2016, Fitbit ranked 37 out of the 50 most innovative companies for that year. In 2016, the company was ranked #46 on the Deloitte Fast 500 North America list.
