Fitbit Versa Special Edition is a fitness-focused smartwatch that’s equipped to track your active life comprehensively. With mixed usage, it has a long battery life of about 5 days, and also comes with 4GB storage capacity that allows you to store and play your favorite tracks right on the watch.
Although the Versa is now obsolete, you can still find it in various stores across the world. It’s succeeded by the more attractive and equipped Fitbit Versa 2.
The Versa is available in two models; the Versa Standard and Special Editions, the difference between these two is that the Special Edition comes with two straps; the Classic elastomer straps and polyester woven straps, unlike the Versa that comes with only Classic elastomer straps.
It’s durably built with aluminum material for the case and elastomer for straps, while the screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass material. The 1.34 inches transflective LCD display is very bright, colorful and can easily be read outdoors even under bright sunlight. The display is touch-responsive in addition to 1 physical button that makes navigation easy.
The Versa comes with 4GB storage capacity that allows you to store and play your favorites tracks on the watch. You can also stream music from popular services such as Pandora and Spotify.
The Versa will track your steps, calories, sleep, heart rate, floors climbed, blood oxygen as well as reminds you to move after a long period of sedentary activity. It can connect to your phone GPS to enable outdoor activity tracking that allows you to map your routes, locations, and see your real-time pace. It features 20 preloaded sport modes that allow you to choose your preferred workout mode.
The battery life will keep you going for up to 5 days from a single charge with mixed usage, while it will alert you when you receive a call, SMS, emails notifications as well as push notifications from apps on your smartphone.
