Learn how to perform a soft or factory reset of your device.
There are multiple ways to reset your device if you are experiencing issues. The first step is to power cycle/restart your device.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to:
• Power cycle/restart your device
• Perform a factory data reset
Press and hold the Side button, then select the Power icon. Select the Power icon and drag it to the right. To turn the device on, press and hold the Side button until the screen lights up.
