The fitness tracker itself is a separate part from the wristband that can be taken out and put in a different band. Therefore, not only are there 10 wristband colors to choose from on the official store, a different color of band can be worn every day with the same tracker. There are even custom bands available from third-party vendors. See More

Garmin states the watch has a battery life of 11 hours training and 9 days of use as a watch, which is a fairly short charge compared to other fitness trackers. However many people have found the actual charge to be much less, often needing to be recharged every couple of days. See More
While watching the screen on your phone, Moov Now fitness tracker can take you through workouts at home. Such workouts are push-ups, sit-ups, and cardio boxing. Cardio boxing requires 2 trackers (one for each wrist), but works similar to guitar hero where you swing as the icons move towards you. See More
As long as you have your phone with you, the fitness tracker will provide real-time feedback based on the workout you selected (walking/running, cycling, swimming, home workouts). Such feedback includes pace tracking (if you are above/below pace it will tell you how far off you are), as well as workout-specific feedback (for example, while cycling it can suggest when you should switch gears).

The battery life of the Fitbit Versa varies between 3 and 6 days depending on use and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings. This also means that you usually don’t have to worry about charging your watch at night and you can properly use the “Sleep tracking & stages” feature. Regarding the charging itself, it takes only two hours to get from 0% to a fully charged battery. See More
Since Fitbit is a relatively new arrival in the smartwatch scene and has a smaller community, its app store offers only a fraction of what other competitors can provide in the third-party app and integration field. The app store itself is not perfect – some apps and watch faces offer trial versions and need payment for full-time use, which is not always disclosed at first. See More
Fitbit Versa offers all-day heart rate tracking, reminders to move, guided breathing sessions, 15+ exercise modes, sleep tracking, female health tracking and subscription-based on-screen workout sessions, all of which is traced and displayed on the Fitbit app. Although the watch does not have built-in GPS tracking, it can easily be connected to your smartphone in a 30 ft range for accurate tracking of speed and distance.

The watch offers 300+ song internal storage, but transferring songs takes a long while and it's different for everyone. On this forum post a user has said that it took 7 hours to upload ~5.5 hours of music on their Fitbit, but another has reported that it took 9 hours to sync 9 hours of audio. There are many posts on the official Fitbit community forum referring to this problem. In terms of streaming, the app store only offers Pandora and Deezer as of now. See More
Since the Fitbit Versa is light, flat and waterproof, it’s comfortable to wear all the time – while sleeping, showering, working out or in your everyday life. The LCD screen is made of guerilla glass, which ensures scratch protection and durability for active use. The Fitbit Versa has a clear and bright display, making it easily visible both underwater and in direct sunlight. Even though the watch’s UI is already designed to give users easy access to everything, the three buttons on the watch can be customizable for shortcuts and commands. The visual design might not suit everyone, and it might seem cheap and childish to some, but customizability and comfort outweigh this con. The app store offers many watch faces, so you can find whichever suits you best. See More
