Fitbit Versa review: How does Fitbit's latest attempt at a smartwatch stack up against the competition?

Excellent battery life ; Slick, comfortable design ; Lots of tracking options ; Swim-proof ; Bright, clear screen

No built-in GPS ; Shortage of apps ; Passive notifications

There’s plenty to like about the Versa, from its generous range of tracking capabilities to its slick design and outstanding battery life, but Fitbit needs to improve its smart capabilities and app selection.

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 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

 

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. Supports female health tracking.

Swapping straps isn't easy. Thick bezel.

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

 

Bored of your fitness band? Welcome to the ideal smartwatch for casual health-tracking...

Solid four-day battery life ; Design has wider appeal than Ionic ; Good exercise- and health-tracking for casual users

Slightly erratic HR tracking and recording ; Connected GPS rather than built-in GPS

Good looks, a decent battery life and a smattering of smarts make this an attractive, if not flawless, fitness tracker

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

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 review: Slick, stylish, but not that smart

 

Fitbit's Versa is an almost brilliant fitness wearable, but silly niggles and the lack of built-in GPS knock its appeal

Excellent battery life ; Detailed sleep analysis ; Swim tracking

No built-in GPS

Sadly, the lack of in-built GPS will lose the Versa a lot of potential friends. Not being able to track a run or bike ride without a phone in your pocket just won’t cut it for everyone. If that doesn’t bother you, though, then there’s a lot to like...

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
