Fitbit is again back with its second ever smartwatch, Fitbit versa following the previous Fitbit Iconic. It is claimed to be the affordable alternative to the Iconic version, provided with a lighter design and lower price tag. This is the latest fitbit watch with an activity tracker and health monitor. It is mainly targeted for women and is even a suitable option for men. While the last year Fitbit Iconic was a great success but went through few criticisms because of its size. Overcoming all those negative aspects, Fitbit now designed the Fibit smartwatch which is smaller in size and holds all those necessary features as in Fitbit Iconic. It will keep track of a wide range of activities including swimming, running, cycling, and the more advanced menstrual cycle tracking. The compact body makes it look elegant on the slim writs.
Though the latest Fitbit watch is not so stylish, still it is quite attractive and trendy. It boasts a rounded square design and has a slim, compact aluminum body that sits flat on your wrist. While the Fitbit Iconic was completely oriented towards fitness, the Versa features a polished design. When seen from the far, it can easily be mistaken for Apple smartwatch. Here, the Versa has a single key to navigate backward. On the right end, there exist two other buttons for a quick start, pause or end workouts. However, the Fitbit watch 1.34-inches display is surrounded by thicker bezels and three physical buttons. The display screen renders 1000 nits of brightness thus making it comfortable to read even in the brighter sunlight. Since it doesn’t hold always on display, a simple press on the left-hand button will wake it up.
