Turning on and off is very simple once you know how to do it, but it can also be a frustrating experience. So, if a picture is worth a thousand words, this article is for you.

Please note that the same procedure applies to the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3.

How to turn on a Fitbit Sense?

Turning on the Fitbit Sense is easy. You can do it in two different ways:

  1. Press the Haptic left button on the side of the watch. Be careful; being haptic, the button can be tricky to activate. We suggest that you keep your finger pressed on it for several seconds, and it will eventually turn on the watch. You will know that the button understood the turn-on command when feeling a slight vibration. Watch the video below to get a better grasp. We voluntarily record it during the entire powering procedure for you to get a grasp of how long it takes. As you can see, you have to be a bit patient.
  2. The second method is our favorite one as it doesn’t require pressing a weird button. We are not the only ones to complain about the inductive button. Numerous users complained about the button acting strange or not working at all. So to switch to the Fitbit Sense, an easy alternative to pressing the button is to plug the charging cable. After a couple of seconds, the watch will turn on automatically, and the Fitbit logo will appear.
