Question about Fitbit Charge Wireless Activity Tracker Sleep Wristband Large

2 Answers

My Charge Fitbit is not holding a charge. Yesterday it was dead within 1.5 hours. I have used the paperclip to try to reset without success. I am ready to throw in the towel so to speak.

I started using this Christmas gift the middle of January and the last few weeks is when the charge was not holding. Actually from the beginning it was not stayed charged for the 5-7 days as is advertised.

You can put the software right, with a reset. Hardware errors and batteries won't change a bit when you use the reset button. When the battery is bad, and it looks that way, just return the Fitbit and ask for a new or new battery. It still should be under warranty. If the warranty is only 90 days for the battery, never again buy a Fitbit in the place you are living. In Europe electronics have a warranty of 24 months.

I have no idea what you used the paper clip for, the reset is down by plugging your tracker into its charger, and then onto power. Hold the button down 12 second until you see the Fitbit logo, and the version.

As for what Harrie said that is not anymore so than a restart of your computer will usually get unresponsive hardware on the computer working.

A restart will reset all hardware to a known state, and start back up the firmware.
This should get your Fitbit buddy working again, of not then

Hand vac doesn't hold power

Mostly likely it needs a new power pack, but you could try cleaning off the contacts first. Use a pencil eraser and clean the metal power contact on the charging unit and the vacuum. Then charge it over night. If that doesn't help, charge the power pack.

I got TomTom for a birthday gift in January. I only used it twice. How long does it hold a charge and how do I recharge it? Need to know asap. Thank you.

One full charge will hold good for approximately 3 hours.If you got it in January, it is better to recharge it. There are two easy ways to charge it. I assume you have got two different cables with it. One connects directly to the car cigarette lighter/12V socket. The other cable can be connected to a USB port of a computer. Tom get charged while connected to the computer also. On the outside chance you did not get the cable or cannot find it go to this link below to get the cables.
Please note Tom charges through the same port (USB) as it connects to the computer, which is it at the bottom of the Unit.
