Fitbit Versa


For its second smartwatch, Fitbit is taking a more casual approach. As its name implies, the Versa is versatile in design, with myriad customizable clock faces, straps, and color options. It's versatile in functionality as well, capable of tracking all...

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

Swapping straps isn't easy. Thick bezel.

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

Its battery life falls short of other Fitbit fitness trackers. The apps and watch faces aren’t always easy to load. Music transfer to the watch is complicated and limited. There's no on-board GPS and the charger is bulky. Tap-to-pay model costs a bit...

When it was first unveiled, the Fitbit Versa was positioned by the San Francisco-based health tech firm as a smartwatch, with a lighter design in comparison to previous devices, more personalization options, and with a battery life of over four days. ...

Lightweight design Fitbit’s most customizable wearable Relatively low price

Rounded design won't suit everyone 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.
