Fitbit Versa review: Finally, a smartwatch that can make Fitbit proud

 

For the past couple of years, Fitbit has flirted with making a smartwatch to compete with the Apple Watch, Pebble, and Samsung. But, until recently, the company had always stopped short of calling one of its products a smartwatch.

Battery life ; Staple Fitbit fitness features ; Design

App store is lacking ; Only available in one size

Fitbit Versa review: A stylish smartwatch at the right price

 

The Fitbit Versa is a prettier, cheaper version of the company's first true smartwatch, the Ionic. It lacks built-in GPS and NFC payments, but you'll save $100 if you opt for the new watch over the original. The Versa still boasts four-day battery life...

Best-looking Fitbit yet ; Bright colorful screen ; Affordable for what it offers ; Long-lasting battery

No GPS built in ; Lacks NFC payments

Fitbit Versa

 

The Fitbit Versa offers just the right blend of smartwatch and fitness tracking features for a reasonable price.

Sleek, lightweight design with lots of style options. Accurate fitness tracking. Guided workouts with Fitbit Coach. Stores music on-device. Long battery life. Will support female health tracking.

Swapping straps isn't easy. Thick bezel. Some features not available yet.

Bottom Line: The Fitbit Versa offers just the right blend of smartwatch and fitness tracking features for a reasonable price.

Fitbit’s Versa is its best smartwatch yet

 

The Versa is Fitbit's answer to the Apple Watch Series 1, but how does it stack up?

Flat, lightweight build ; Compatible with iOS and Android ; Tracks a wide variety of health / fitness stuff ; Four-day battery life

Poor notification support ; Swapping bands sucks ; No data sharing with Apple Health or Google Fit

Ultimately, I think the Versa has a chance to appeal to everyone other than those hardcore Apple users — and that’s saying something for Fitbit right now.

Fitbit Versa review

 

Fitness buff or not, the sleek and stylish Fitbit Versa adjusts to any lifestyle.

Lightweight case ; Offers smartphone notifications ; Accurately monitors heart-rate ; Solid battery life ; Interchangeable bands

Not fully compatible with iOS ; Small library of third-party apps ; Limited music services

The Fitbit Versa is a comfortable and stylish smartwatch, with a battery life that lasts far longer than competing smartwatches. Its heart rate and in-depth fitness tracking capabilities — paired with notifications via Fitbit 2.0 — make it a steal for...

Fitbit Versa review: Slowly but surely pushing Fitbit past the “fit” bit

 

If you think Fitbit is just for fitness, this $200 smartwatch might change your mind.

Lightweight design that's water-resistant up to 50 meters. ; Bold, full-color touchscreen. ; Good battery life. ; New Today dashboard makes finding important daily activity info easy. ; Great sleep tracking. ; Accessible developer tools with Fitbit...

Interchangeable bands are hard to remove and replace on the device. ; NFC for Fitbit Pay only on special models. ; Female health tracking and Android message replies not available until later this year. ; Only one watch face can be saved on-device at...

After two attempts with the Blaze and the Ionic, Fitbit finally made a successful, promising smartwatch. The Versa is what the Blaze should have been from the beginning, but I don't believe Fitbit could have made the Versa if it hadn't developed the...

Fitbit Versa review

 

An affordable alternative to the Ionic

Lightweight design ; Fitbit’s most customizable wearable ; Relatively low price

Feels a little cheap and childish ; Battery life not as good as Ionic ; No GPS

While its feature set isn’t quite on par with that of its bigger brother the Ionic, the Fitbit Versa feels like the same watch but with a lighter and friendlier design and a much lower price point.

Fitbit Versa initial review: Lacks GPS, but loaded with functions

 

The Fitbit Ionic saw the popular fitness tracking company launch its first "smartwatch". Designed to walk a path that gave you the convenience of the smartwatch

As we mentioned above, the lack of GPS sets out the Fitbit Versa as a device that might not appeal to those who need precise location information. If you're a runner, for example, you'll be better served by the Ionic or a
