Fitbit has recently announced the Fitbit Versa 2. The latest version comes with big improvements that include a new OLED display, new features, and an improved battery life.
The Versa 2 features a lightweight aluminum casing with a touchscreen display. It now has NFC, which can be used for Fitbit Pay (unfortunately, it’s only available in select countries).
It also carries over features from the first Versa, such as an improved 24/7 PurePulse heart rate tracking, Sleep Stages and Insight monitor, an on-screen personal workout coach in Fitbit Coach, over 15 Exercise modes, storage for music, and more.
In addition, the Versa 2 now has support for Spotify that allows users to control the app. Previously, it can only control the Deezer music app.
As a fitness device, the Versa 2 is water resistant up to 50 meters and allows tracking while swimming. It also has a five day plus battery life, a 1-day improvement from its predecessor.
The Fitbit Versa 2 has a starting price of USD 199 or roughly PHP 10,500. But chances are that it will be similarly priced to the first Versa when it launched locally.
Local pricing and availability are yet to be announced.
