Fitbit Launches More Affordable Smart Watch and Tracker

Fitbit Versa brings female health tracking and a much-improved design

With the growing rates of obesity in children, Fitbit believes that Ace is a great way to teach children healthy habits.

These software updates will debut on the new Versa, but will also be available for Ionic users via a software update.

The Fitbit Versa is up for pre-order right now, is priced at $199.95, and ships in April. The smartwatch has a touchscreen that offers 1,000 nits of brightness, and Fitbit says the Versa has a battery that can last more than 4 days on a single charge.

Announced alongside the Fitbit Ace fitness tracker for kids, the £199.99 Versa sports the same PurePulse heart rate and SpO2 sensors you get in the Ionic, but it does so in a much more slender and attractive design.

It sits comfortably on the wrist and isn't as thick as alternatives such as the Fitbit Blaze, and unlike the Ionic, it has rounded edges. It'll also be available from big retail stores like Amazon, Best Buy and Target.

Apple Watch-like tricks are also included in the Versa experience.

SBI slashes minimum balance non-maintenance fines by up to 75%
For semi-urban and rural centres, the charges have been reduced from Rs 40 to Rs 12, and Rs 10 per, respectively. The minimum balance for SBI savings accounts are Rs 3,000 for accounts in the Urban and Metro areas.

Fitbit has revealed three new products today, two wearables and a new app enhancement for its users, with the goal of helping them track and manage their health.

The resolution looked good and while there are thick bezels around it the screen seemed responsive in our limited testing time flicking through apps.

In the world of smartwatches, there aren't many players left. Fitbit OS now plays nice with Deezer, so you can download offline playlists from the streaming service and pair Bluetooth headphones for a phone-free experience (provided you don't want Global Positioning System as mentioned).

Some may find that frustrating, but it's a sensible feature to lose if you want to save a bit of money. Exactly how this will work in the pool is a little unclear, but we'll take it for a dip when we get one to try it out. Your Fitbit watch will also show your fertile window in your Today dashboard if you so choose. It also comes packed with the Relax guided breathing tutorials we've seen before. As with any Fitbit product, the Versa also includes a robust array of fitness options.

For instance, it could recommend more sleep in the coming week because a bad period is on the way, or suggest easier ways to exercise if you're feeling too exhausted. The Fitbit app logs your weight, sleep, workouts, heart rate, food intake and, now, your periods; it then gives you insights based on analyzing all of that data. That is not the only thing Fitbit is banking on though. The Versa will hold up to 300 songs in its internal memory, so you don't need to take your phone with you when you leave the house.

In the coming months the idea is you'll be able to quick reply to Messenger, text, WhatsApp and a few other notifications from your wrist, but this feature is only set to launch for Android devices initially. The shape of the Fitbit Versa is quite similar to that of the Apple Watch Series 3, and they both feel like truly premium devices. We will bring you a full Fitbit Versa review as soon as we can.
