It's a model SM-R360ZINXAR, Serial No. <Hidden>.  I press and hold the side buttons (individually and together) for long periods of time (30 plus seconds), nothing.  Put on the charger and it shows a white lightening bolt for maybe a second, then nothing.  Opened it up for the first time yesterday, so don't have experience with it working before. Left it on the charger overnight last night, nothing still this morning.  Help!

Hello there, @userRJ6xcOgU4U and @userMQ03PryjmV. We're glad you reached out here with your concern.

Try opening up the device you have the Gear Fit 2 paired with and unpair the two. Give the phone a moment or two, the try repairing them. Afterward if you try to turn on the Gear Fit 2, hopefully it will turn on just fine.


If this doesn't help, we certainly want to assist you further with this matter. To better do that, can we have some added details about your specific device and this concern? Things that will help the most would be the exact model number and Baseband version (both under Settings>About Device) for your device as well as what smart phone your device is paired with, when you started noticing this happen, and what you've already tried to fix it. Thanks!

Press both buttons down together and hold....it should reboot.  This worked for me.

This did not work for me. I haven't used the watch for a couple years. It's been sitting in a drawer. I currently have it plugged into my computer as I remember that was the best way to start charging when totally dead. Any other suggestion?

Am experiencing the same thing.  Just bought mine and tried to turn it on by pressing the power button.  Nothing but black screen.  So I figure it just needs to be charged.  I connected it to the cradle.  The lighting bolt icon comes on for a second then dissapears.  Doesn't look like its charging.
