Fitbit has unveiled the Versa smartwatch, a more affordable companion to the $299 Fitbit Ionic launched in 2017.
The Versa is Fitbit’s second wearable built on the Pebble software platform, after its acquisition of Pebble’s “key assets” in 2016.
Versa is Fitbit’s lightest device to date, and Ars Technica reported that the smartwatch has three physical buttons on its sides and a 1.34-inch, 300 x 300 LCD touchscreen.
It is water resistant up to 50m, has an optical heart-rate monitor, onboard storage, and on-device coaching with Fitbit Coach.
Unlike the Ionic, the Versa does not have a built-in GPS, although it does support a connected GPS when paired to a smartphone.
