The Versa 2 is the next generation of Fitbit’s best-selling smartwatch. It delivers a new precision-crafted swim-proof design. The Versa 2 also packs in advanced health, fitness and smart features to elevate every moment.

Better sleep for more active days

We all know sleep is critical to maintaining overall health and wellness. However to maintain our busy schedules, we often end up getting less sleep than what is ideal. By applying the vast tracking data Fitbit has, it was able to develop its latest features to improve your sleep patterns.

Easily track your health and fitness statistics

A sleep mode allows you to rest disturbance free whereas a nightly sleep score gives you insight into your sleep quality. Coming soon are features that will allow your watch to wake you up at an optimal time based on sleep cycle and a feature that will help you track the variability of oxygen in your bloodstream to understand breathing patterns.

Fast performance in a new design

The Versa 2 is packed with a faster processor compared to the Versa for better performance and seamless navigation. Also, the large AMOLED display delivers a superior experience with boosted visibility and colour. An optional always-on display mode lets you easily check your statistics during a workout without lifting your wrist.

The Versa 2 boasts an elegant design

In terms of build, it uses an updated subtle material, finish and form for a universal appeal. The watch is durable and water resistant up to 50 metres yet lightweight and comfortable to wear all day long. An anodised aluminium finish gives it a sophisticated and modern aesthetic. The more premium Versa 2 Special Edition comes with a premium jacquard woven band in navy and pink with a copper rose aluminium case or smoke with a mist grey case. Likewise, bands in navy and olive go with the special edition smartwatches.

Features to enhance your lifestyle

Fitbit Pay is a service that makes everyday payments easy and secure. The Versa 2 allows for phone-free payments at retailers and seven transit systems worldwide. With its Spotify application, the service’s Premium subscribers can control music and podcasts directly from their wrist. As a result, the Versa 2 has the ability to store and play 300+ songs from your personal music library and Deezer playlists.

Your ideal workout companion

Similarly, the Versa 2 offers smart features such as application viewing, calling and text notifications from your wrist. If you use an Android phone, you can reply directly using the on-device microphone. Plus, you can choose from nearly 3,000 applications and clock faces to personalise the experience.

The Versa 2 matches any fashion trend

Furthermore, a paid subscription service called Premium could also be advantageous for you. It tracks your data to deliver Fitbit’s most personalised experience yet, with guidance and coaching to achieve your fitness goals. The service will be available in English in 17 countries including the UAE via the Fitbit application in the fall season.
