Nice to meet you, *****!
Can you clarify where did you change the language, on what device?

Customer Replay

i wanted to reset a Garmin Fenix 6 watch so that I could sell it, but somehow changed the language


Ok, got it.
Do you know what language you changed it do?

Customer Replay

I think it’s Estonian

Customer Replay

the screen says süsteem and I think that is system

Do you see two gears next to it?

Customer Replay

yes but it has gone back to the watch face now

Alright, please go back and press on the "süsteem" option.

Customer Replay

i don’t know how to get back to it

Ok, got you.

  • First, press and hold the Middle left button to open the menu.
  • HardReset.info: Now use the Up and Down button to scroll through the menu.
  • Scroll down and select the Süsteem

Ok, good!

  • Now select Language - in Estonian, it should be Keel.
  • Next, press the Upper-right button to enter.
  • After that select the language you want to use - English.
  • Finally, press the Upper-right button to confirm.

That’s done thank you. Can you talk me through the reset please!

Great job :)
Sure, what kind of reset would you like to perform?

Customer Replay

back to factory setting so that I can sell it.

All right, you'd like to wipe all the data, right?

Customer Replay

yes please

Ok, so hard reset it is. Just a moment, please.

  1. Start by pressing and holding the Up/Menu button to open the menu.
  2. Once in the menu use the Up/Home button and Down button to scroll up and down.
  3. Select the System, then press the Right Upper button to enter.
  4. Now scroll down and find Reset, then press the Right Upper button to enter.
Customer Replay

Then I choose delete data and reset settings?

Yes, that's exactly it.

Customer Replay

It’s doing it now and I have the green triangle

Note that you might have to wait a bit, this process may take a while.

Customer Replay

thank you for your help

Is it done, all good?

Customer Replay

it seems to be loading maps

Starting from the beginning, right?

Customer Replay

i think so

Ok, you can check if the reset was successful by looking if all the previous info you've had is gone.

Customer Replay

It’s asking me to select a language

Ok, select English, perhaps?

Customer Replay

It’s going through the set up menus miles, time format etc, is there a way to turn off without doing all that?

It asks you to basically set up everything anew, right?

Customer Replay

yes but I want to leave that for the next owner

You can just turn off the device, in this case.

Customer Replay


  1. First, press and hold the Light button to open the Controls menu.
  2. Now use the Up and Down buttons to scroll through the menu.
  3. Select the Power off option.
  4. Then press the Start button to confirm.
Customer Replay

that’s done, thank you

Good! The new owner can then turn on the watch and set it up to their liking :)

Customer Replay

yes, thanks for helping me today

My pleasure! Good job following the instructions, Jules. Anything else I can help you with?

Customer Replay

no, that’s all I needed to do thank you
