How To Properly Clean Your Fitness Watch⌚️

Summoning all fitness friends!!📣

As you may know, keeping your fitness trackers and smart watches clean is crucial, not just for aesthetics, but also for maintaining their functionality and hygiene‼️ If you haven't bothered to clean it in awhile, now is the perfect time!🤩

It is super simple and easy to do and will have your watch shiney and beautiful in no time!🥳


Step 1: Disassemble Your Device🛠️

First, carefully take apart your fitness tracker or smart watch by removing the straps from the base!⌚️ This allows you to access all the nooks and crannies where bacteria and grime tend to accumulate🦠.


Step 2: Clean the Tracker Itself⌚️

  1. Rubbing Alcohol and Cotton Squares: Dampen a cotton square with rubbing alcohol.🫧 Use this to wipe down the entire tracker, paying close attention to all the grooves and edges!!

  2. Toothpick for Tight Spaces: For those hard-to-reach areas, use a toothpick to dig out any hidden buildup. 🥢 This step is crucial for removing grime that could interfere with your device’s performance.‼️

Once you’ve thoroughly cleaned the tracker, set it aside to dry.💨


Step 3: Clean the Bands🩹

The bands get the most dirty with them being wrapped around your wrist all day! They may be discolored from accumulating grime, not latching as well, etc.😬 Follow these steps to clean your silocone and/or fabric bands!!👇

For Silicone or Plastic Bands

  1. Rubbing Alcohol: Apply rubbing alcohol to a cotton square again and clean the surface of the band! Make sure to remove any dried-on gunk.🥴

  2. Toothpick for Detail Work: You can also take a toothpick again to get into the tight areas and remove any remaining dirt!🥢 The rubbing alcohol will dry quickly and effectively dissolve sweat particles.😪

For Fabric Bands

  1. Hand Washing: Fabric bands are generally easy to clean by hand. Add a small amount of dish soap to the band and work it into the fabric.🧼

  2. Rinse and Air Dry: Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.🚿 Set the band aside to air dry completely.💨


Step 4: Reassemble and Enjoy🤩

After all components are clean and dry, reassemble your fitness tracker or smart watch.🛠️ Now you’re ready to enjoy your workouts with a device that looks and feels fresh!🥳


Regularly cleaning your fitness gadgets not only extends their lifespan but also ensures they remain comfortable and hygienic to wear!!🤩 This only took me a few minutes and I felt 10x better tackling my workout with a clean watch knowing it would track everything without a problem!🥳

Happy cleaning and happy training!💪
