Info 2 Gear Fit constant reboot

I took my Gear Fit off and put it on my nightstand while I took a shower, when I came back out it was in a constant reboot. I know it was charged since I had done that last night.

I tried everything I could think of, holding the power button didn't seem to do anything. What finally got it out of the reboot was hooking it up to the charger and holding the power button until I felt it vibrate twice. I had tried that earlier, but only felt one vibration and let go of the power button. So if anyone experiences this behavior, hold the power button until you feel two vibrations and hopefully yours will come back up as well.

I did have to pair it with my phone again, but all my settings were still in Fit Manager. Only had to switch screen rotation and wallpaper.

Mine has done the same. Did it while charging. Rebooted itself and got stuck in a constant rebooting loop. I used odin to reset by flashing the firmware. It worked. Your method is a lot less time consuming.

I have searched through the forums but I have not been able to find out how you did it, so...I have to ask:
what version of odin did you use and where did you find the stock rom file for SM-R3500?
When i try to connect to kies via usb it freezes my computer so I guess that You did not use Kies at all?
Sorry for being a noob!

Why do not you use the Search button And also In Gear Fit section is not so many threads so it's easy to find something.

Default This may help

Ok so I had the same problem as you all with gear fit constantly rebooting. Here is how I resolved it:

1) Download KIES (It is a sumsung app which you can use to update the firmware on the gear fit)
2) Once dowloaded, you need to get a cable to attach the end of the charger to a USB port on the computer
3) When the gear fit says "Rebooting" on the bottom of the screen. Press the button 5 times.
4) It should then give you 2 options. Continue and Dowload. press the button one to scroll down to "DOWNLOAD" then press and hold the button for 3 seconds. A screen will come up saying the fit is downloading.
5) Open KIES.
6) In the tools menu go to firmware upgrade and initialization
7) Follow the steps. It will ask you for information on the back of the gear fit.
8) Connect the gear fit to the computer when KIES asks you to.
9) It will then download the firmware and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps
