Bryan,
 
Please make sure you're holding, not just pressing, the power button for at least 3 seconds. Simply pressing the button quickly does not boot your device.
 
If this fails it may be due to battery failure. This may be the case if you have dropped/possibly damaged your phoneGear Fit recently. The battery may also simply have expended all of it's charge permanently. The estimated lifetime of the battery used in the Gear Fit (210mAh according to [http://gizmodo.com/samsungs-galaxy-fit-is-a-smartwatch-and-a-fitness-trac-1529854495|Gizmodo]) is 1000+ "cycles" which is one complete drain from 100% to 0%. This translates to roughly two years for the average user. Extensive use (especially while simultaneously charging) can reduce this and cause early battery death. Either of these causes will require battery replacement which is covered here*. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.
