What are tips to extend my Fitbit device's battery life?

How do I store my Fitbit device long term?

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 charger 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.
