Hey everyone, all of a sudden, the power/sleep button on my gear fit seems to not work at all....

has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?

gonna try and run the battery down and then attach it to the charger, but afraid that it will no longer turn back on if I do that

its been about a months since I bought it so I won't be able to return it unless I buy a new one and do a dishonest switcharoo

Everything about the watch appears to be working properly except for the fact that the power sleep

no damage or anything

any suggestions?

That happened to me a month or so ago. Just hold down the power button for twenty seconds or more. Eventually it will totally power off. All worked when I powered it back up. Hope it works for you.

Glad it worked for you too. It took me forever to try holding the button down for so long. Live and learn.
