The Fitbit Versa is a prettier, cheaper version of the company’s first true smartwatch, the Ionic. It lacks built-in GPS and NFC payments, but you’ll save $100 if you opt for the new watch over the original. The Versa still boasts four-day battery life and a comprehensive range of health-tracking features, making it a strong fitness-centric smartwatch.

But it does feel like precisely the kind of smartwatch Fitbit should have made all along.Gizmodo80Fitbit Versa Is the First Real Bargain SmartwatchThe super stylish smartwatch worth flaunting doesn’t quite exist for under $300, but the Versa gets closer. At the very least it will let you review how you slept before telling you you’re late for a meeting. If you, like me, want a wearable that gathers stuff you can use to make informed and beneficial decisions about your health while providing enough smarts you keep you abreast of who’s hittin’ you up and when your next appointment is, get the Versa.Ars Technica80Fitbit Versa reviewPast success should tell Fitbit that ecosystem is everything. The company's mobile app is the best health and fitness program for any wearable because it has the flexibility to suit both serious athletes and novices alike. It didn't become that successful overnight, and neither will Fitbit OS. However, Fitbit has the opportunity to make its wearable operating system just as killer as its mobile application and overall ecosystem—if it can do that, its devices will be strong contenders in the smartwatch world. It may not have made a splash as Fitbit's first smartwatch, but if any device can entice users to take a chance on Fitbit as their smartwatch provider, it's the $200 Versa.Macworld90Fitbit Versa reviewFitbit's $199 Versa smartwatch combines good looks and fitness acumen into a package that's good enough to challenge the cheaper Apple Watch Series 1.PC Mag80Fitbit VersaThe Fitbit Versa offers just the right blend of smartwatch and fitness tracking features for a reasonable price.CNET80Fitbit's $199 answer to the Apple WatchThe Fitbit Versa is the best fusion of smartwatch and general fitness tracker under $200, if you can live with its limitations.Android Authority80Fitbit Versa reviewFitbit is still new to the smartwatch world, and it shows. This isn't the smartest smartwatch on the market — it certainly has its quirks — but it is a big step in the right direction. I have no doubt the company has the potential to make a great smartwatch; it's even made huge strides since the launch of the Ionic. But right now, Fitbit is competing with Google, Apple, and Samsung for your wrist, and it's unfortunately just not there yet.The Verge70FITBIT'S VERSA IS ITS BEST SMARTWATCH YETUltimately, I think the Versa has a chance to appeal to everyone other than those hardcore Apple users — and that’s saying something for Fitbit right now.iMore90Fitbit Versa reviewFitbit's being extremely competitive with the Versa's price, coming in at $100 less than the Ionic and $50 cheaper than the Series 1 Apple Watch. $199 is a steal considering everything Versa brings to the table, and whether you're a long-time Fitbit fan or simply want a wearable that works incredibly well as both a smartwatch and fitness tracker, I can easily recommend the Versa without skipping a beat.Digital Trends80Fitbit Versa reviewFitness buff or not, the sleek and stylish Fitbit Versa adjusts to any lifestyle.
