How do I turn on GPS on my Fitbit Versa 2?

Answered by Jason Smith

To turn on GPS on your Fitbit Versa 2, follow these steps:

1. Ensure that your Fitbit Versa 2 is connected to your smartphone or tablet. You need a Bluetooth connection between your device and the Fitbit for GPS functionality.

2. On your Fitbit Versa 2, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the quick settings menu.

3. Look for the GPS icon, which looks like a small globe. If the GPS icon is grayed out, it means that GPS is currently disabled.

4. Tap on the GPS icon to enable GPS tracking. Once enabled, the icon will turn blue, indicating that GPS is now active.

5. Now you can use the built-in GPS on your Fitbit Versa 2 to track your outdoor activities, such as running, cycling, or hiking. Open the Exercise app on your Fitbit by tapping the exercise icon on the clock face or by swiping left until you find it.

6. Select the exercise you want to do from the list of available options. For example, if you’re going for a run, select the “Run” option.

7. Once you’ve selected the exercise, you’ll see a screen with various options and settings. Look for the GPS option and make sure it is enabled. Depending on your Fitbit device, the GPS option may be labeled as “GPS” or “Connect GPS.”

8. Tap on the GPS option to turn it on. If it’s already enabled, you can skip this step.

9. Press the back button on your Fitbit Versa 2 to return to the activity screen.

10. You are now ready to start your activity with GPS tracking. Press the play button to begin tracking your exercise using GPS.

It’s worth noting that using GPS on your Fitbit Versa 2 may drain the battery faster than usual. Make sure your device is adequately charged before starting an activity that requires GPS tracking. Additionally, GPS accuracy can vary depending on factors such as your location, weather conditions, and the availability of satellite signals.
