Without wasting time, let us try to troubleshoot Fitbit Versa 2 not turning on the issue. 

1. Recharge the Versa 2

If your Fitbit Versa 2 is dead and not responding, then you have to recharge it for at least one hour. Most of the time, a Fitness tracker dies because of no battery power. 

People tend to recharge the fitness trackers and smartwatches as it needs to be charged only once in five to seven days. 

Also, before you shut down or restart, make sure that the fitness tracker has at least 50% battery in it because your device consumes more battery during a restart or shut down.  

In my case, my Fitbit Versa 2 came back to life after recharging it for one hour. 

2. Check Charger

After one hour, try to start the smartwatch again. If it still doesn’t turn on, check the charger any damage. If your charger gets damaged, then the tracker does not charge, and ultimately your device dies. 

Also, make sure that the charging port where you connected the charger is functional. If you doubt any malfunction, change the plugin port and try to charge the Versa 2 on another charging port. 

Additional Tip: Always use the original Fitbit Versa 2 charger or Fitbit recommended charger for charging purposes. Otherwise, it may damage your device/battery. 

Using a duplicate charger can also be a reason for revoking device warranty. Say no to duplicate chargers and other accessories.

Note: Fitbit Versa and Versa Lite chargers do not work for Versa 2

3. Clean Versa 2 Charging Port

If all the steps fail, then clean the charging port of the Fitbit Versa 2 on the backside of Versa 2. Use a clean cloth to clean the device.

Please do not use any sharp object to clean the charging port as it may damage your Versa 2. Besides, it can even damage the waterproof sealing of your Versa 2. 

If there are not any severe issues, then the device will turn on. Otherwise, there may be severe issues with your Versa 2, and you need to contact the Fitbit customer support.

When my Fitbit versa 2 failed to turn on, I checked the Fitbit Community for support. But there was not a useful thread to fix this issue.
