You can turn off your Fitbit Blaze in a few ways.

Like any good Fitbit, a Fitbit Blaze will remain on and working for about a week with a fully-charged battery. But should you plan to go device-free for a while, you should turn the Blaze off to save some power.

Shutting down your Fitbit Blaze can save battery, but it can also help reset the system if you encounter any issues or errors.Advertisement

When you turn off your Fitbit Blaze, you won't erase any data, so don't worry about losing your stored stats and info.

Here are three ways to turn off a Fitbit Blaze.

Press and hold the highlighted buttons for about ten seconds.

In a bit under ten seconds, the tracker should power down.

Let the battery drain

If neither of the above approaches worked, you may have to wait a few days until your Fitbit Blaze's battery dies. Advertisement

Once it dies, charge it fully before turning it back on, and hope the issue is resolved. If it's still not working, contact Fitbit for help.
