** GET THE GEAR ON AMAZON** https://www.amazon.com/shop/jimcyr Restarting your fitbit Alta is easy & quick. You won't lose user data, but is the recommended action whenever your fitbit is acting up such as: not synching, isn't responding to taps on the display and any other odd things. You'll need your USB charging cable and plug it into a USB port. Next plug the fitbit alta to the charger. Notice the small round button at the USB plug portion of your charging cable. We simply need to press this button three times within eight seconds. Take your time pressing the buttons. You should feel a short vibration on the fitbit with each time you press the button. If done properly, your fitbit will display the logo and software version. At this point, you can remove the device from the charging cable and if you are paired to a smartphone you most likely will not have to pair it again, so you can use the app and sync. This isn't working?

Available from: Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2s8X9KJ Amazon US: http://amzn.to/2spdUC0 Amazon CA: http://amzn.to/2AADndb This is a method of completely erasing ALL data and tracking information from your Fitbit devices. Some models can be "factory" reset by holding a special combination of buttons. But most models now only allow a "soft" reset which doesn't remove certain data, things like text messages or GPS data. After searching YouTube for a possible solution and finding the same reset options, I thought I would try a different approach! After removing my device from MY fitbit account, things still remained on the watch/tracker, this made me a little concerned about possible hacking or reverse engineering to get my personal info out. So the best way to make sure that your own data isn't on the device? Put someone else's data on the device! Genius! Now even if the device is given away or sold to someone it doesn't matter what is on the device as it is just a generic account that be used then logged out from and forgotten about. Please feel free to use the account to overwrite your data on any of the Fitbit trackers, it should work with them all! If you get any problems, let me know in the comments section. Also if anyone from Fitbit doesn't approve of this method, please let me know, and I will remove the video and account.
