Fitbit Touch Screen Not Working: How to Fix

Here are some of the top ways for fixing a Fitbit watch with a faulty screen. But before using our guide, we suggest that you use the owner’s manual of the device.

1. Restart the Device

If you are dealing with a blank screen, you can make things better by restarting your Fitbit. But before you can get the best results, it would help if you used the following steps:-

  1. Plug the Fitbit into its charger
  2. Connect the charger to a power outlet
  3. Hold the button until the Smiley face appears on the screen
  4. Check if the screen works

 2. Change Your Clock Face

If your Fitbit still has screen issues, then it might be time to remove your clock face. As the screen has issues, you will have to change the clock face from the Fitbit app.

  1. Place the watch close to the mobile device
  2. Open the Fitbit app
  3. Select Today Tap – Profile Picture – Device Image
  4. Select Gallery – Clocks
  5. Choose your preferred clock
  6. Select Install

3. Hit it Hard

Although this looks harsh, hitting your Fitbit Versa can fix its bad screen. But instead of punching the watch to pieces, use this hack by performing the following steps:-

  1. Hold the watch in the air
  2. Hit the back of the tracker with a single finder
  3. Check if the screen works

4. Restart Your Phone

Before throwing your arms in despair, try fixing your screen by restarting your mobile device. Even it looks simple, it serves as a quick way to fix your Fitbit screen.

Restarting your mobile device is as easy as switching it on and off. But if you do not know how to restart your smartphone, refer to its owner’s manual

5. Charge and Tap

If your Fitbit still has issues, you will have to combine two of our hacks – charging the battery and tapping the phone. Now here are the steps for using both hacks at the same time:-

  1. Plug the Fitbit into its charger
  2. Connect the charger to a power outlet
  3. Hold the button until the Smiley face appears on the screen
  4. Remove the charger from the tracker
  5. Hit every inch of the screen until the display comes on ( if the screen does not come on)

6. Call The Fitbit Support

Although our tips are well researched, they might not be the ultimate solution for your bad touchscreen. Instead of panicking, it would help if you reached out to Fitbit technical support.

Asides from providing the best tips for dealing with screen issues, this platform also offers repairs. On top of that, you might even get a replacement for your faulty Fitbit.

You can reach Fitbit Technical Support via email or telephone. On top of that, you can drop your complaint on the Fitbit community page. With any of these channels, you should get a response within a short period.
