Fitbit Versa now available on Amazon starting at $199.95

Tuesday, 17 Apr, 2018

A more expensive special edition Versa smartwatch, priced at $299.95 CAD, includes support for Fitbit Pay, the company's mobile payments platform, which now supports RBC cards in Canada. Released today on Amazon, the Fitbit Versa takes a lot of lessons from the not-so-hot launch of the Ionic to make a smartwatch that is both stylish and useful. It also supports the usual fitness tracking functions, including heart rate tracking and swimming, but also features menstrual tracking for the target audience. If you've been waiting to get your hands (wrists?) on one, now's your chance. You have more than 15 exercise modes to choose from including Run or Swim, and you can connect to your smartphone Global Positioning System if you want more precise real-time pace and distance.

The Versa will give you notifications for your calls, texts, calendars, and other app alerts from sports, weather, news, etc.

The Fitbit Versa will also receive quick replies and female health tracking sometime in May. In addition to the design and UI changes, the Versa will also include an extremely impressive battery, which can last for up to four days without a charge.

The smartwatch is available in three colour options - black case with black band, silver case with gray band and rose gold case with peach band. The special edition model - the one with Fitbit Pay - will run you $229.95 and comes with a really nice charcoal or lavender woven band.
