  • Hard reset


    can anyone tell me how to do a hard reset of the forerunner 935?

    Thx a lot!

    Hold down the light button for at least 15 seconds until powers off. Then turn on again.

      What if that does not work?

        Then you probably need to do a full reset. What's the problem you're experiencing?

          Since Google took me here, I'll update this. Seems there are a few different "resets" and not all instructions are available in the public manual.

          Method 1 - "Resetting the Device" -

          If the device stops responding, you may need to reset it.
          NOTE: Resetting the device may erase your data or settings.
          1. Hold on/off button for 15 seconds. The device turns off.
          2. Hold on/off for one second to turn on the device.

          Method 2 - "Clearing User Data" -

          NOTE: This deletes all user-entered information, but it does not delete your history.

          You can restore all of the device settings to the factory default values.
          1. Hold on/off button.
          2. Select on/off icon -> Yes to turn off the device.
          3. While holding Lap/Back button, hold on/off button to turn on the device.
          4. Select Yes.

          Method 3 - "Master Reset" - from Garmin Support Chat
          1. Power off watch (press and hold Light, Yes on prompt)
          2. Press and hold Start/Stop and Lap/Reset.
          3. Press and hold Light (three buttons should now be pressed in)
          4. After first beep, release Start/Stop.
          5. After second beep, release Lap/Reset.
          6. Release Light.
