We can confirm, with a decent level of certainty, that the Fitbit Versa 2 does what it needs to do… fairly well. It’s not too big, not too small, not too clever, and not too dumb. It lives in a solid middle ground — perfect for someone who’s looking for a fitness tracker with a bit of everything.

Fitbit recently introduced its next-gen smartwatch — the Versa 2. It has a brilliant AMOLED display, an always-on option and even more apps.
Fitbit’s Versa smartwatch/fitness tracker impressed us right out of the gate, though we were less taken with the sequel. The next entry in the franchise promises to do better, though, as Fitbit’s next Versa has leaked online. The highlight? A new AMOLED display, some design changes, and support for Amazon’s Alexa. Looks like we might have to get that Echo tech after all.
We’ve used Fitbit’s Versa for some time, but the company’s since gone and released a stripped-back version of the smartwatch/fitness tracker — that’s the Fitbit Versa Lite Edition to you. The new wearable loses a fair few functions but that means that the price is right. On paper, at least. The RRP for the Versa Lite Edition is lower than the Versa’s RRP — not that it matters all that much.
Fitbit surveyed a selection of its users internationally to find out how fitness could fit into parents’ busy schedules, and how they could take better advantage of their time with their children to improve their fitness at the same time.
Fitbit has announced four new products, including a smartwatch, two bands and a new fitness tracker for children.
Fitness trackers are still worth your time — even though smartwatches are on everyone’s wrists…
