You may be familiar with Fitbit's original Step Tracker. It is only a small rubber bracelet with a battery that you wear around your wrist and would light up and vibrate as you reached your desired step goal each day. It was all connected to an app on your smart phone, and did its basic job and worked well.
Now Fitbit is taking it to a whole new level. They are releasing their second Smart Watch and have created the Versa, your total fitness companion. Versa helps you live your best and healthiest life. It does so much more then just count your steps, now it can track your heart rate, your sleep cycles, and even your menstrual cycles (for you ladies). There are 15+ different work out modes like swim (the watch is waterproof) and run, that you can put your watch in so that it can track real time stats. It motivates you and gives you guidance.
It also includes features to compete with other smart watches. It provides on-screen workouts that play on your wrist. Versa connects to your smart phone via Bluetooth and will receive notifications, for example, when someone is calling or from your calendar and reminders. You can also respond to text messages, check the weather and read the news. Phone-free music is also available as you can store music right on your watch and listen to it with Bluetooth headphones. Even your Pandora account will work on Versa. All your favorite apps can be downloaded to your watch.
Another neat function is the pay function. Use Fitbit Pay (available on special edition watches) to pay for your goods and leave your wallet at home. The 4-day battery life will make sure you never leave home with an uncharged battery
And of course let’s not forget that it can also tell you the time. Versa has loads of different watch faces to choose from. There are several different colors to create your own look as well as accessories to purchase.
All this for the reasonable price of $199 USD. Available now for pre-order on their website.
