Can I extend my Fitbit device's battery life?
Battery life is the amount of time your Fitbit device runs after it’s charged to 100%. To maximize battery life, turn off or reduce your use of certain features.
Because battery life is affected by use and other settings, actual results may vary.

We recommend that you use the charging cable that came with your device. Note that after several hundred charge cycles, your device may need to be charged more often.
*Using features such as always-on display and GPS require more frequent charging.
- If you turn on always-on display, Versa 2 has a battery life of up to 3 days. Sense and Versa 3 have a battery life of up to 2 days.
- If you use built-in GPS regularly, Charge 4 has a battery life of up to 4 days. If you use built-in GPS continuously, Charge 4 has a battery life of up to 5 hours, Ionic has a battery life of up to 10 hours, and Sense and Versa 3 have a battery life up to 12 hours.
- Keep in mind that it can take up to 2 hours to charge your device to 100%. Avoid charging your device in extreme cold or heat—below 32°F and above 113° F (below 0° C and above 45° C). For more information, see How do I charge my Fitbit device?
- Prevent the screen from turning on each time you turn your wrist. If you move your hands a lot, your device’s screen may turn on more often than you realize. For more information, see How do I see the time on my Fitbit device?
- Dim the screen or turn on auto brightness on Charge 3, Charge 4, Ionic, Sense, or Versa series. In the Settings app on your device, find the brightness setting, and tap to change it.
- Turn off the always-on display setting on Sense, Versa 2, and Versa 3. For more information, see How do I see the time on my Fitbit device?
- Use dynamic GPS on Charge 4 to allow the tracker to connect to your nearby phone’s GPS sensors to preserve battery life. For more information, see How do I use GPS on my Fitbit device?
- Turn off notifications you don’t need, including alerts from apps on your phone, alarms, and reminders to move. For more information, see How do I get notifications from my phone on my Fitbit device? How do I manage alarms on my Fitbit device? and What are the reminders I see on my Fitbit device?
- Reduce your use of music control, music apps, on-wrist calls, Fitbit Pay, and connected or built-in GPS.
- Consider changing your clock face, as animated clock faces may require more frequent charging. For more information, see How do I change the clock face on my Fitbit device?
- Tracking SpO2 data may require more frequent charging. Remove SpO2 tracking from your Fitbit device to extend your battery life. For more information, see How do I track blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) with my Fitbit device?
- Turn off certain Fitbit devices when you’re not using them. For more information, see How do I turn off my Fitbit device?
If you want to store your device for several weeks or months, charge it to 100%, then turn off the device to avoid additional battery use. Note that you can only turn off certain Fitbit devices. Don’t leave your device plugged in on the charging cable during storage. For more information, see How do I turn off my Fitbit device?
For trackers, charge the device to 100% at least once every 6 months; for watches, charge the device to 100% at least once per year.
Store your device in a cool, moisture-free place.
