    Default Galaxy Gear Fit reboot loop

    I noticed that there was one thread on this topic but absolutely no replies on others with this same issue.
    My Gear Fit is giving me Fits, all of a sudden it started rebooting over and over on a continuous loop. The only time it stops is when the battery goes dead. Plugging it into the charger only starts the constant rebooting again. Until this I have had no problems what so ever with my Fit. I looked on the device for some type of reset but I don't see one. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know of a fix? Please help! I miss my Fit!
    Thank you!

    Yes, mine just started doing that. I cant turn it off either. Its never done this ( to my knowledge), I thought there was a reset button right above the heart rate sensor but its not. If you figure anything out, please share!

    UPDATE: I finally called Samsung and they issued an RMA, I sent it back and they replaced it under warranty. All is well now!

    I am having the same problem. Just started. Has anyone learned a solution here or is this the end of the unit?

    Try holding down the power button until it vibrates twice...not once.

    Im the newest victim of the reboot loop. I already have an RMA but cant find time to send it back. Until then, please share if any of you good guys stumble across a solution.

    Now I am the latest with the reboot loop. Is this being caused by an update? Can anything be done to fix this short of sending it back for a replacement?

    Yikes! Mine did that - and I think it makes sense to say this is because of an Update that I was forced to do on my phone last night - for Voicemail.
    I really don't want to have to get a new one - just got this 2 weeks ago. What is the fix?

    Don't send it back, just unlink your fit from your phone, so open the app and say forget device, turn your phone on airplane mode and turn off Bluetooth and wifi for a minute, the basically just hold down your home key for a few seconds until your running apps page pops up, select end all or what ever it is in the bottom right hand corner. Then re open the app and look for the device, it will pop up and a code will show up, click yes on your phone and the green check button on left on your fit, then your fit will walk you through the rest, just like the first time you got it!! It just gets over loaded with too many apps running on your phone...

    Make sure you turn your wifi and Bluetooth back on when you take your phone back off airplane mode after a minute, before reconnecting, other wise you will have no luck again since you have no connections...

    I tried the airplane mode reset but now the phone does not recognize the Fit. Do you recommend anything else?

    I got new gear fit as a gift. It was fun for about week and then the reboot loop started. I did not try the tricks on this blog as I did no have time to get to the research. I let the gear fit sit for couple days. When I got time to try to work on this, I turned on the fit and the battery was dead. I had turned off Bluetooth previously. The fit had message to reconnect and recharge. It appears the reboot loop is gone and the fit operational. Hope this helps as a fix process.

    I just got this issue, and that's why I found this forum. In my case, it happened when I try to backup my data to Samsung cloud in S Health. Keep holding down the power button of the Gear Fit didn't seem help. In the end, on phone, in Gear Fit Manager, I tried to connect to Gear Fit, it eventually stops rebooting, and everything returns to normal.

    Looking at everyone else's post, I wonder if it is a moisture issue. I know I have been washing my hands excessively today when this started to happen to me. I had a similar issue with my iPhone from listening to music on it in the shower. The moisture creates a connection so it seems like you are pushing the power button even though you aren't.

    Press the power bottom 5 times until it shows two words.

    Continue
    Download

    Then highlight download and press 3 times and hold power bottom and it will start to download. This may take a while but it will get your fit back to normal

    You said select download then press 3 times and hold power button. When do you press it 3 time after highlight download?

    Love my Gear Fit but having this problem for the second time since June 2014. Back then I sent it in for a fix. Now not sure what to do. I don't think Samsung supports this device very well.

    I have figured it out with the manually download thing. Plug the gear fit into your computer. then do this sequence in the picture below. It will take awhile to download but it should take you gear fit out of the rebooting loop. I have done many other things in the forum but now my gear fit is downloading so that i can finally use it again. I miss my watch so much! I'll keep you guys posted.

    Then it just gets stuck in 'Downloading...' CHAT support said they would not probably fix it for free and that because I wore it in the rain from my house to my car (like 5 yards) it got wet.

    Any real fix would be appreciated.

    I have had my gear fit rebooting for the last two days, I am trying to fix using the download as suggested (wish me luck) and will keep you posted if this works. I guess my next step is to contact Samsung.
