      So firstly I want to make it extremely clear that I use my versa for purely fitness the rest of the functions are either pleasant or I just don't use them. So if you're curious about payment apps, music app, basically anything besides the fitness coach, steps, HR, and water resistance this isn't the review you wanna read. Also I think it's important to note I have a Moto E4 plus and I've had no issues with syncing (I was concerned and I wish people with syncing problems had given their phone info bc that feedback helps other buyers and the manufacturers to fix any bugs in the system). So now that I've gotten those important tid bits out of the way. I LOVE THIS WATCH. So I had gotten some cheap wish one ages ago bc I wasn't ready to commit to spending anymore than even 30$ bucks on a watch (wish I did it sooner!). I haven't regretted my purchase whatsoever. It is pretty accurate with everything, I have noticed heart rate issues BUT that brings me to an important note that Fitbit did not include in their info booklet. With fitness watches u should be wearing them ofc non dominant bc it does track steps by gps apparently but also u have to remember it's probably measuring ur steps by how u move ur arms as well. With the heart rate you wanna wear it underneath that bone on ur wrist, I don't know why don't ask me. I learned that from my wish watch bc in the instructions it said that and whenever I have an inaccurate reading on there versa I'll move it down past that bone and sure enough it's reading accurate again. I don't understand why they say to wear the band so it's able to move up and down slightly, I recommend u don't. Obviously don't have the thing so tight but it works w lights and any light coming in through any gap will give u heart rate inaccuracy as well. Now besides that I really can't give it enough verbal praise. It really is an amazing watch and I recommend it for anyone wanting to step up their fitness game. I really love the coach feature and the Fitbit app itself is super nice. I love how much they jammed into the app, I do wish I could connect it to my Lose it! account bc it's easier to track food than on fitbits app but lose it requires u to be premium to connect ur Fitbit so I can't knock Fitbit for that. I guess my last thing to note is I don't understand people's issue with the clock faces, I changed mine and it hasn't changed back at all. Also been going 2 days now and at 80% which is day and night to my old watch, that crap would need to charge every night could barely last 10 hours. OH ONE LAST THING: whoever said this felt cheap obviously has issues bc this watch feels quite luxurious to me! Granted if u expected metal I could understand but even then the plastic does not even remotely feel cheap. I've already dropped mine twice on the ground (sweaty hands after my run bc I don't like to shower w it just seems gross to me since it does get sweaty under the band and ya know dead skin and all) and not a single scuff

      The Fitbit i've been waiting for

      Fitbit has always been a fitness watch FIRST, so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that an Apple watch has... and it's not meant for it and it shouldnt be the reason why you buy it. It's for fitness and activity tracking and now with the new fitit versa (and ionic) they are getting into more smartwatch functionality. There are some apps you can add to the versa as well as receive notifications on the watch, but as of this review you can't reply to messages yet. Fitbit says that's coming in an update. You can sideload music directly to the versa using your computer! (so old school!... hopefully they'll get better with this one day too) and then connect your bluetooth headphones to it for real hands-free listening. you can also use pandora plus or Deezer for music.... hopefully bigger named music services will be added one day.... Bear in mind... fitbit is very new to the smartwatch game, the versa is only the second one out.. so there are limited apps and services connected to it now Design-wise... The fitbit versa is thin and very lightweight... you can barely feel it on your wrist. This is what sold me on the versa! I love it. Looks better in person too.. it feels and looks great on the hand. (get a screen protector for it tho.. i've heard folks say that theirs already has scratches on it :-/ ) the information on the watch is very readable and clear...not small at all. There are different kinds of watch bands you can buy and switch out depending on where you are going. Plenty third party folks are selling them now. Battery life is about 3-4 days. It charges pretty quickly too. I like to drop it on the charger while i take a shower so it can top up a lil. The fitbit versa does not have built in GPS (on either edition) nor fitbit pay (the limited edition one does tho... for $30 more) but since i don't run outside, leave my phone > , nor use fitbit pay, those are fine for me. If you need them, get the ionic (which was also a great product... i had that one before but got this one because of the design) I'm loving the direction fitbit is going with their devices... this one is definitely a good one

      I have been wearing a Fitbit since the beginning (Fitbit Flex). I've also used the Flex2, the HR and the HR2. They have all improved on functionality and features as they progressed. But the Versa is outstanding. Not only does it do a great job at it's core functions (counting steps and heart rate), but it can sync to my phone for GPS tracking of workouts, I can change clock faces (which also allows the data to be shown differently), I can read my texts and incoming caller ID, and I can make simple responses to texts. It feels lighter than the HR2, is more comfortable, and is fully waterproof (to a certain depth). The silent alarms are also adjustable, so if you use it as an alarm clock it will wake you up (my main complaint about the HR2 was that the silent alarm was barely noticeable...) It has apps, and the Versa can stream music to BT speakers/earphones. I am regretting not getting the "special version" to try Fitbit Payments, but maybe next time. My only complaint so far is the battery life. I am getting an average of 3-4 days before I get the alert that the battery is low, which isn't horrible. It only takes about 2 hours to fully charge, so I will charge it when doing computer work or watching TV. The HR2 would last 6-7 days, but of course it didn't have nearly all the functions. I cannot compare this to a smart watch, since I haven't owned any, but I would put this more in the the category of a smart watch than a fitness tracker. I strongly recommend it.

      Really happy with the Versa

      I've been using the Versa for a week now, switching from a Charge 2, and overall love it. Here are the top points in my opinion: - It really is slim and easy to wear. It almost seems smaller and less noticeable than the Charge 2 (The Charge 2 is a bit thicker). I wear it all day and at night and have no issue with it. - I saw one review that said it looked a bit cheap but I don't see it - I think it is another really nice Fitbit device with a nice screen, good band, and it looks like the pictures you will see online. - Battery is as advertised, it burns about 22-25% per day so it will be around 4 days of life. - One thing on size, if you were one of those people that would tuck your old fitbit in your sock while on a bike (as it doesn't register anything on your hand), not sure that is too easy to do with this being a bigger device. Not a big deal for me, but it is something that is harder to do vs. a Charge. - The touchscreen is very responsive and quick Some improvement areas: - The app store is a nice add but now everything is an "app" and there are two things I don't like with it. First, seeing all of your Fitbit stats is available in the Fitbit Today app which you swipe up to see, but there is a minor lag in launching the app. For prior Fitbits, being able to cycle through your steps, floors, heart rate, etc. was immediate. Second, alarms can only be set on the watch, not through the Fitbit app on your phone or the Fitbit website. Not a huge deal, but not sure why this changed as I usually would set alarms through the iOS app before. - Not an issue with the Versa but now that Fitbit has bigger displays, they really need to approve the change to allow "quiet" times on the "Raise to wake" feature. I love having that on during the day but at night as you move, the watch screen enables and it is too bright at night. This wasn't a huge deal with the Charge HR, became a little bigger issue with the Charge 2 and now needs to be fixed. Overall, if you are a Fitbit fan and like the looks and idea of the Versa watch, you will love it. I was on the fence on if I would like it as I am not a watch fan at all, but I love it.

      Slightly Disappointed

      Although I owned several fitness trackers, this is my first Smart Watch. Since I have an iPhone, I was considering purchasing an Apple Watch 3. Based on the reviews and cheaper price, I chose the Versa. The watch itself is nice. Even with my small wrist size, the watch face is not overpowering. The band is comfortable to and I like that it is a standard type of adjustable band. The screen is clear and nicely visible outdoors. I realize there is a learning curve with the exercise functions and my rating does not include this. The touch screen works well as well as the swiping functions. I would like to be able to arrange the screen apps in an order I use most but not sure if that is possible. I and on day 2 after a charge and am at 61%. Where Fitbit fails for me, and the 3 Star rating, has to do with the watch face apps, transferring of music and the fact that the mobile app is not working for several days that the Fitbit team has been working on with no solution at the time of this review. When you change the watch face, it is not saved anywhere in case you decide to change it. You will have to go the Face store and re-install it. Not too convenient. Transferring music is not ideal. First, for Windows users,you have to download the Fitbit desktop app from the Microsoft Store on your PC. My Microsoft Store is not working and I have been working on the solutions for 4 days now. I had to use a family member’s computer to use the Fitbit desktop app to transfer music. For some reason, it took almost an hour to load 18 songs which is too long. I can’t believe Fitbit does not have a desktop download directly from their website which would help those of us whose Microsoft store is not working. For now, I will have to borrow the family member’s computer to add additional music; not convenient. Lastly, I am one of the lucky ones who was able to setup my Versa before he mobile app failed which is needed to get started using the watch. Until the current mobile app issue is resolved and hopefully a better way to change watch faces and music transferring, I cannot recommend this smart watch. If no updates to these issues soon, I may return mine

      Great Fitness Tracker and Watch

      The Fitbit Versa has features that are found in much more expensive fitness track or watches. It has coaching and accurate tracking so that you can keep a good eye on your progress toward your goals and get some guidance on improving your workouts.. The watch is very durable with bands that can be changed. This feature was important to me because the last fitness watches that I had were replaced because the band broke and could not be replaced. The Fitbit Versa has a Low Profile and looks like a watch. It has multiple clock faces to meet your personality or eyesight, the digital clock setting is very easy to read on the go or while exercising. The notifications worked seamlessly with her phone. The music download feature is great from those times that you want to work out without carrying your phone. I found the Pandora app built into the phone to be particularly useful. The Fitbit app for your phone and your PC work very well with the watch. The Fitbit app also work with other fitness apps so you have a lot of flexibility in tracking your progress. I like the Fitbit app’s ability to track food intake, as a extensive list of restaurants and food items which are not constantly inputting information it also has ability to scan bar codes however the barcode function will not always work but manual entry is pretty easy and once it is entered you simply selected from the list it will also track micronutrient basics carbs fat and protein. The sleep tracking function has been incredibly helpful for me and has given me the information I needed to improve the quality of my sleep. This model is also water resistant, you can go swimming or boating without worrying about destroying the watch. However you cannot go scuba diving with the watch and expected to survive. This particular model however does not have the NFC pay capability. For me it is not worth the extra money as I would generally have my phone with me and it doesn’t bother me to tap my phone rather than my wrist. Because Fitbit is so well known in the market there is a lot of third-party products out there that will enhance the Fitbit Versa such as protective bumpers and screen guards. I always recommend as a minimum you put a screen guard on your device. If you’re active Murphy’s Law says you are going to scratch the screen if you don’t have a protective cover the Fitbit Versa has a lot of options in that area. Overall the Fitbit Versa is very durable, water resistant and an accurate tracker. After using the unit for a while I have not found a negative this is amazing because I am usually a nitpicky pessimist – Thus it earned a 5 Star rating its Well worth the money.

      My Fitbit Upgrade

      Posted

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I'd been wanting to upgrade from the Charge HR, and had been going back and forth between the Ionic and the Apple watch. I have very small wrists, and the Ionic was huge on me. The small Apple fit better, but the expense was something I couldn't wrap my head around. My procrastination paid off when the Versa came out with its smaller and more attractive watch face. I will say that it is still a little large on me, but I'm getting used to it. Even with the small band on I have an excess of band remaining. I love that you can customize the watch face with your own picture. A couple of things prevent me from giving it 5 stars. First, I was hoping the Versa would not have the same flaw as the Charge, and that is when you are pushing a cart in a store, no steps are registered. But the Versa records no steps then either. Also if you walk up a flight of steps holding something in the arm your watch is on, it will not record the flight of steps, which was also true of my Charge. Trying to get my music from iTunes onto the watch was more time-consuming than I would have liked. You have to turn off Bluetooth on your computer for the transfer, and when you have a wireless mouse and keyboard, that presents a challenge. Only 17 of the 42 songs I was trying to transfer actually worked due to an error message. Overall, the Versa is comfortable to wear and does most of what I need it to do.

      It's pretty great

      Top line: It's a great device. It's a smart watch that doesn't reach to try to be something it's not designed to be. It nails the fitness aspect by boasting accurate optical HR readings for all activities I've tried so far, and also allows users to customize what notifications they want to receive from their Versa. It'll work with Google Maps, messaging, Etrade, NY Times, and a whole lot more. And the FitBit app is second to none in the fitness space... Note: FitBiot did have a small fumble with the App Store crashing the first week of launch, which was a frustrating experience. Now that this functionality has been restored, and the software on the device is running as it should with updates, all is well and stable. The really good: The battery, the looks, the onboard memory for music, the touch sensitivity, the HR accuracy. It also has a low-profile elevation off the wrist with the new HR sensor (no real bump). The less good (but still good/fine): FitBit pay is only supported by some banks. I'm sure this will come in time. The Versa lacks GPS. For some hardcore runners or cyclists, this may be a deal-breaker. But for me, I am fine with sidestepping this feature. Most other mid-range fitness watches lack onboard music, so that'll leave you brining your phone anyway (or a music device). I'm fine having the Versa estimate my distance when I want to leave the phone behind, but I'm good also bringing the phone with for most activities. What really matters is HR accuracy, and I've found the measurements to be very good with the new FitBit HR sensor integrated. All of that said, my consideration set was as follows: Garmin Vivosport, Garmin Vivoactive 3, Apple Watch Series 2/3, FitBit Ionic. I think the Versa is the best blend of aesthetics, functionality, smart watch appeal, and app ecosystem. I'm a happy dude.
