Had the Charge 2 for a while and loved it. Then switched to the latest apple watch at the encouragement of a few friends. While that apple watch was nice for the few months I wore it, I found I was not using a lot of the features in it that may have been why it was double the cost of the Versa. On the apple watch I found the battery would not last more than 36 hours and the phone app was no where near what had in terms of activity and sleep tracking as well as just overall display of the many data points.When the Versa came out I said why not try it, hearing how slim it was and the extended battery life. It was that or go back to my Charge 2 that is also a fantastic tracker. My goal was to get back to the app. I love this watch/fitness tracker and know this is going to be a huge hit for . The app I love is now back in my life for the detailed activity and sleep tracker and the battery life is nearly as good as my Charge 2. I have gotten five days of battery life on the Versa already - this is with a 45 minute workout on each of those five days included. At the end of the five days I was at 28% remaining, telling me I had another day or two of charge remaining. The texts all come through, the watch rings when I get a all on my iPhone, the screen is crystal clear, the watch itself is very slim compared to apple(no bump on the underside), there must be hundreds of clock faces to choose from, and it has all the apps I could think of needing in the watch store (the store is already noticeably growing). This is the fitness tracker\watch to get. Very impressed and kudos to for a well thought out fitness focused watch that is a true competitor to the apple watch.Just a quick comment on the setup of the Versa. I saw a few comments here about how the setup took 30 minutes or so to complete with an update. My comment is so what? I just put my Versa on the charger, used the app to update it, walked away, came back and wha-la - it was done! It hasn't stopped since!Enjoy!
I have had mine about 2 weeks now. I ordered the rose gold special edition version. I had an alta HR prior to this and used it mainly to track sleep, steps and for text and call notifications while at work. I wanted to be able to see any calls or texts while I was on the floor since we aren't allowed to have our phones out. I am rarely near my desk and I was wanted to make sure I could see calls or texts from my sitter or my childs school. The Alta worked well, but I love the new Versa even more. I really wish there was a way to sync two phones to it. I would love to be able to have messages from both my personal and work phone show up on it. The size is great. It isn't too big and its actually lighter weight than the alta HR. Its thinner as well. I added my bank card for the payment feature which is pretty cool. I like that I can change the watch face on a whim. There are new ones added every day as well, plus you can make your own or use a photo with some of them. The steps seem accurate but the floor counting seems a little high. It counts the 3 low steps from my porch as a floor which I didn't expect. I had no issues with set up at all. I have a galaxy S9+ and all the features work. Set up was extremely simple. You can charge it with the bands on. The bands are harder to swap out than on the Alta HR since you have to get the little pi s in just right. The sleep tracker works well. I have used it to play music with blue tooth headphones a couple times. It works fine but it isn't something I use often. I hope the text replies come soon as I was really excited about that feature. Overall I am extremely happy with it. I still love the Alta Hr and I gave it to my mother and also bought one for my neice.
I was really debating between this and Apple watch but so glad that I bought this Versa.I bought this only for fitness reasons and didnt want to be bothered with constant notifications/messages/calls, etc.So far this Versa does exactly what I need it to do and gives me all the data which helps me stay healthy and motivated.You really need to keep this on you 24/7 in order for you a accurate data over time.I did not know if sleep data would help me but it has become one of my favorite features of the watch.Also love the fact that this watch is so light, battery life is long and dosen't get in the way while in the gym.The only negative thing I can think of is that sometimes the screen dosen't always come on when you raise your wrist to see the time. But you can always double tap the screen to get it on.If you live an active lifestyle and want to refine your training or you are a newbie and want to get active, I would highly recommend this Versa watch. However, if you just want to have a phone on your wrist for notifications, love all things apple, play with apps, etc. then get a Apple watch. (by the way I am an iphone user)
Update after 2 weeks of use:I've put the Versa through its paces over the past two weeks... 110 miles of walking (235,000 steps) and 400 flights of stairs, plus tested its waterproof claims. Here's what I've found:- The distance/step tracking is pretty accurate without the GPS, nominally better than the Blaze, but with one exception. It appears to be sensitive to arm movement without walking. For example, I attended a concert and picked up a "mile of walking" just by standing and clapping my hands at the concert. I tested this a couple times. Just sitting and clapping or tapping my knees to music will add steps and distance to the counter. Couldn't find any solution for this other than use the GPS function - connecting it to your phone's GPS - as you exercise, which works well. But now that I know the issue, I can adjust my tracking accordingly. Since I walk with my phone anyway (for security) this is not an issue for me either way.- Stair/elevation changes track very similarly to the Blaze. My daily outdoor walk route includes some hills and the number of "flights" it tracks never varies by more than one on any given day.- It is definitely waterproof. In the shower, in the pool for more than an hour, walking in the rain. No problem. You can even read the screen underwater. Haven't tried the ocean yet... that will be next month.- Without connecting to GPS and only syncing on demand, not constant, I get a good full 5 days of battery life. I find I have no need to have it continuously sync.... if I want to know my progress, it's on the watch anyway with less effort than opening the phone app.- I have not tested out the music yet, though I've looked at it and the instructions appear pretty straight forward. Since I'm taking my phone with me anyway, I don't need to have the music on the watch. I'm sure I'll try it eventually.The bottom line for me at this point is that it is everything the Blaze was with a better interface, charging solution, and waterproof.I've had a Blaze for 2 years.... it helped me lose 175 lbs over that time period. I replaced it with this Versa mostly because the Versa is waterproof. Other than being waterproof the only functional upgrades are (1) the ability to store music and play music directly thru Bluetooth, the watch's ability to connect to WiFi (to do OS updates and download music) and (3) the updated operating system that allows third party apps to be installed and used. Otherwise than these it gives me the same functionality as the Blaze.It is a little smaller and thinner than the Blaze and because, unlike the Blaze you don't pop it out of its frame, the control buttons seem easier to use. The screen display is much brighter too. The Blaze in direct sunlight is unreadable; this one is fine. Screen resolution appears to be much higher too.Setup was a breeze. Just follow the step by step directions on the app, which needs to be installed on your phone before setup. There are also some fine videos online that will walk you thru the setup too.I've taken it thru 2 days of activity so far (about 24 hours) and as I write this the battery is 83% charged. Sensors seem a little more sensitive than the Blaze.Some reviews complain about the apps or the watch faces. I think there are plenty of the latter to choose from and most are free. The one pictured here was free and I liked it because it displays all the tracking on one screen (and with a simple tap on the screen I can change the display color).All in all I'm happy with the Versa upgrade from the Blaze.
Have owned this for a week now and can't say enough good things about it. Fantastic smart watch that is about 80% of an Apple Watch for less than half the price. If you love the community and want a waterproof tracker that adds a ton of smart watch features and has great battery like to boot, this is your !
My husband loves it...
I love this watch so much! I have a small wrist and was concerned it may look too big and unattractive, but not the case...it looks classy. I have gotten many many compliments. The health features are great, I have already lost a few pounds! I do like the 7 minute workouts on my coach app, they are quick, easy and effective. I went for a run with the Versa, I know that many were upset about the lack of GPS. Honestly for me it was not a problem. I usually go the same route so I already know the mileage...I was just so glad I did not have to bring my phone along to listen to music! I love this watch!
Sing me the Blues
I love this watch! It is awesomely intuitive with exercise even if you forget to put it on that mode. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles (or price tag) that the Apple Watch does, its a fitness smartwatch-not and entertainment watch. But people do mistake the design for an Apple Watch. It has a nice look! My wrist is small and it is a little big on it, but I really like it. You can see texts (but cannot answer them) and you can see and answer (if you have bluetooth) incoming calls. Guided breathing and coaching sessions. Timer (stop and countdown) and alarm. Weather, including extended forecasts. Reminders to move if you aren't on target to hit your goal. Calories burned. Miles and of course steps. You can also download songs onto it ( I have yet to do this) Its like a power packed motivator on your wrist!!!! I absolutely LOVE this watch! It does scratch easily, and I would recommend a protector purchase immediately.
I am very impressed! This watch has certainly met my expectations. As a previous user, this is an upgrade from my Alta HR. The versa shows a full text message, as compared to the Alta HR which only shows the first few words. Love the large screen, you can clearly see all your important stats. Was worried about the size of the screen and the square design not looking nice on a small wrist but it looks great. Lies fairly flat, and super comfortable. Touch screen is very responsive.The watch itself feels very lightweight, which is also a plus for me. I have only had the watch for a day so I cant testify to the battery life or durability, but will update my review if I run into any problems. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade their to something a little more fancy!
I spent a lot of time looking at other smartwatches. I'm so glad I went with the Versa. This is my 3rd . I like the sleep tracking and didn't want to give it up. I have had the watch for 2 weeks. It charges quickly (about the time it takes me to shower). The charge does last a few days which is another reason I chose this watch. I didn't want to charge it everyday! I have used the exercise app when running and walking. I entered my Strava info into the app on my phone and my exercises sync between and Strava without having to manually start Strava. Notifications are much easier to see than on my Alta. If I miss seeing a text I can swipe down from the top and the message will show again. I like that feature. It was hard to see text messages on my Alta and many times they were too long to show everything. The Versa shows the entire text and will show emojis.I read some negative reviews about the watch and band looking cheap. I disagree. I love how it looks on my wrist. It is quite pretty.
Upgraded from the charge 2I am really happy with this watch so far.I was worried it would look clunky bc I have childlike wrists, but it looks really good. And it's super light weight.Battery life seems to be holding up well.If you're looking for something with more apps or more phone like features (I.e LTE connectivity), I don't recommend this watch.It's the cross between smart watch and fitness tracker that I've been waiting for.
This smartwatch is a very good purchase. Being a Polar fan for years, I really wanted to stick with the brand. My intentions were to get the Polar M430 but after reading that their wrist heart rate monitor demonstrates a too erratic behavior, I decided to look at other brands. The Versa is a perfect fusion of style, sports oriented performance and practicality.Like everyone has mentioned here, the watch is super light and feels great on the wrist. I like it better than the Apple watch and I like the fact it has less apps and so easy to operate. As per the wrist heart rate performance, it is very accurate. I am getting the same readings of my usual runs and cycling workouts without the need of a chest heart rate receiver. I emphasize on the value of having an accurate readings from your wrist only. The sleeping readings also are of great value (give resting hr) and give you a better understanding of your sleeping patterns.I give this watch a 4.5 /5 score (rounding it to 5). The only aspects I wish were different are the heart rate zones and the software interface. On the Polar platform, heart rate zones are classified into 5 levels. Fit bit only has 3 levels and you cannot modify it to separate the heart rate zones you want to stay at when you are working out. With all honestly, Polar might just have a better exercise platform (software). I do not want to take anything away from 's software platform but I wish it was a little more presentable (less colors and less animations). Obviously this is just my opinion and other people might like it. I am very content with this watch and it feels like suddenly Polar is not as competitive as it used to be.
I have had this watch for a day. I got the special edition so out of the box it comes with two sets of bands both the fancy charcoal ones and a set of the plain black, in both small and large. Very nice. There is a lot of plastic to undo but hey that's life. Setup was fine, it does take a long time to update, a solid 30 minutes and the software both on the watch and phone does not do a good job of letting you know what's going on. But hey its does eventually finish and it's good.The smart watch apps are fine, nothing great but I have had other Android smart watches and they are all kind of boring. I'm not a big fan of the smart watch functions on any watch so I don't care that much. The messaging works well and DOES support Allo! That's great for people that want this. I already want to turn it off as getting all my texts on the watch gets annoying fast.The watch itself is very comfortable and looks nice. It seems to work the same or better than my charge 2. It recorded my first night's sleep great with no issues. And my walk to work was the same steps as my Charge 2 so all good.My only gripe and it's going to get a BIG 1 star reduction (should get 2 really) is the Pay!! I paid extra for the NFC function as I assumed it would just pass Google Pay through the watch. I use a smaller bank and Google Pay does work with it. Well Pay does not. And come on... we don't need yet ANOTHER NFC payment option out there. This is just being greedy and trying to make money in an area that is not their business. Even if it did take my bank card I doubt very many places would accept " Pay" ... come on. So this was a waste of money. Don't buy this watch for the NFC unless you confirm that it will take your bank first. And then have realistic expectations about what stores and vendors will actually accept " Pay". What a shame.
Recommended for: Regular people who want to take care of there health in a budget-friendly way!Pros:* Price - Just too good as compared to other ill thought products such as Android Wear.* It's for regular users who want fitness checks, limited smart-watch functions, great experience(battery life).* UI is simple, the design is simple.* Battery does last for 4 days.Cons:* Not for a fitness freak as it lacks GPS.* It's not as good smartwatch as Apple Watch but hey it's not as pricey as Apple watch.
I am on day 4 with the new Versa and I absolutely love it. I have gone swimming with it, the main reason I got it in parallel with the fact that my old wasn't holding a charge anymore. I can see the integration of the acquired Pebble team which I was a huge fan of. This marries best of both worlds and puts it into (in my opinion) the most beautiful design. It's not a blocky, gooby, and awkward looking Apple Watch, nor a clunky large workout watch. This watch, I think, is literally my favorite watch both design and function. Thank you for getting it perfect! Can't wait to use all the other amazing features this watch has!
Versa, Vantage Point: this review is focused on uses by one very interested in incorporating scheduled and found activities in an ever changing week. Topics of interest are not solely footwork running, swimming and seasonal biking/skiing. PROS: Informative for combinations of steps, heart rate range, sleep and hydration. Surprisingly light weight. Watch Face is comfort on woman's arm. Making use of changeable faces (info during classes and individual effort vs travel vs dining or theater. Like options for seeing weather and availability of high contrast and analog second hand. I enjoy relaxation mode and prompts for deep breathing. Nice adding motivation with familiar music.FIRST DAYS. Not intuitive for 4 year jawbone user. 30 minute setup? Used YouTube and downloaded detailed manual (hard to find) to swiftly, confidently detach bands for charging. Some elements/detail only available through multiple selections on I-phone. Is customizable, sort of. But, I do like it.CONS (POV for Innovager:1. Activity monitors should not be just pedometers. That is, "workout" category is too general. a. I want to look at step class, total body/burn, weights class, sit-ups, dancing:line dancing Zumba and others may want Silver Sneakers Leave workout as a catch all. b. For these activities as well as walks, I'd like to self rate my effort for that slot of activity; easy, mod, difficult, In zone, gut buster. And calories burned should reflect this (e.g., jawbone model). 2. Sleep and daily average heart and activity are are to read. Vertical bar charts by day? In fact summary bar charts vary in legibility and I haven't figured how to display sleep and overall activity or steps together by week or month. 3. Innovagers are a huge potential market. I was put off that as soon as I entered "female," I had to answer questions solely developed for ages 11-50ish. At least give us NA option? Bookmark: consumer panel on 5 aspects of self-rated memory response. 4. Quick peer comparison; wrist width changes with hot weather. Need 1/2 inch more to move it up to get heart rate as shown in instructions.NOTES. Because I'm urban and walking at various times and paces, I have continuous monitoring and am charging more often than each 3 days. Am purchasing alt bands and smaller charger. Glad I found this. I will update review as apt.
I love this . I've had multiple different s (flex, charge hr, and blaze) and this is by far my favorite. It is light weight, aesthetically pleasing and has a LOT of customization. If you've owned a before you'll be happy with this one as it improves on all the older models, most importantly the addition of being waterproof allowing for swimming activities.However, there are a few downsides i wanted to addressI opted for the special edition one in part for the band. I am allergic to the standard so i was excited for the possibility of getting one at launch with a band that i wouldn't be allergic to and not requiring an immediate band upgrade. The fact that it has nfc pay as well was just a bonus.However something they really did not factor in when creating this woven band is exactly how bad it can smell if you dont routinely clean it with soap and water. I typically go to the gym and straight to work, with little time in between to literally wash my band between uses, i'm used to wiping it down. While showering with it is possible, that creates its own set of issues as leaving a sopping wet band on my skin is not good for either. So if you actually workout while wearing this be way that it may start to smell if you do not clean it routinely after each workout.and while not a deterrent for me, it is a bit upsetting that they have partnered with Pandora and something called...Deezer? but dont have a contract with Spotify for music. However that is a minor thing as i rarely use my separate from my phone.overall though, its their best product yet they just haven't been able to make a standard band that doesnt create a problem for me.
Being nearsighted, I have always worn a watch to bed because I cannot see the clocks in the room. So a cheapo LCD digital watch with the basic light function has worked for the past 30 years. Now I've got this amazing smart watch which not only serves the main function of time piece during the night, it also tracks my sleep states! I use a CPAP so it has allowed me to actually see the change in sleep states when I take the mask off halfway through the night. It would appear I have many more "awake state" periods than I expected. (Dang)The device I'm fondly referring to as my "wrist nag" will let me know 10 minutes before the hour that I've not gotten up and away from my computer to take at least 250 steps. Funny thing is I really need to do this (back problems) and I had a computer nag that did something similar but it did not vibrate. Something about that vibration on my wrist and that 10 minute window motivates me to get up and take the long way around to the bathroom, down a flight of steps, outside, around the building, back in the main entrance, up the stairs and to the bathroom, then back to the office. which is about 600 steps, and then I get a happy vibration letting me know I achieved this goal.I know that sounds silly on the surface of it. Childish even, but smart behavioural Psychologist figured out that these simple things like the vibration, the little gold stars, completing the circle goals every day, actually motivates.I'm doing things I never thought I would do just in order to achieve my daily goals. To get that gold star!I've had this for a couple of months now and I still love it. I really like the very fast charging feature since I rarely take this thing off.
I love the sleek/slim design of this watch and how easy it it to use and navigate. The reason I didn't give it 5 starts is because my GPS tracking is off. My mileage is always shorter than what Map My Run says and my husband Garmin Fenix 5 watch says. I upgraded to this watch from the Alta HR and am overall very pleased��mostly due to the more accurate HR. This seems to record way more accurately than the Alta. My Alta would read a HR of 75-95 during my cardio workouts. I've also included pictures of Today's stats. You can easily scroll down on your list to get a glance at an overview of your day.
I've had a charge 2 for almost 2 years and have loved it but I really wanted one that had a screen that was easier to read. So far I have had no issues with the watch. It takes a while to setup but only takes about 30 minutes to charge every few days. I did buy a different band that is soooo much easier to attach than the one that comes with it. I also bought screen protectors as several reviews stated their watch scratched easily. I love being able to set alarms easily from the watch instead of having to use the app. I also love that it fits so much more flush to the skin than my charge 2 and doesn't leave indentions in my skin. With the charge 2 I often had to take it off and scratch my skin where it felt irritated. With the versa I forget I'm even wearing it.I decided not to pay the extra $30 for the special edition because I always have my phone with me to use Apple Pay so I don't need my watch to do that.The women's cycle feature is a nice new addition as well. I also like the ability to change watch faces easily.So far really am happy with this purchase and have my charge 2 as a gift to my sister.
This is my third product by . I've owned the One model, the Blaze, and now the Versa.***Update: 5.28.18 my Versa screen went completely blank this morning after about 5 weeks of normal wear. The backlight comes on, but the screen is otherwise blank. The tracker will still track steps, flights of stairs, etc., but it is useless as a watch. I have contacted and am in the midst of troubleshooting. I suspect I will need a replacement.***The short, concise review is: if accurate, consistent sleep tracking is not a high priority to you, this tracker is superb! And, this tracker is definitely water resistant. For my purposes, this is the best I've owned and I definitely recommend it.For a more detailed review -Things I love about the Versa:It is water resistant! While I haven't tested the Versa in a pool yet, I have worn it in the shower several times without any issue whatsoever! For me, both personally and professionally, having a water resistant watch is a MASSIVE perk!I have small wrists, and one thing I did not like with my previous (the Blaze) was how bulky the watch band was. The band always stuck out from my wrist, leaving gaps. While I did get a third party replacement band for my Versa (solely because of personal style preference), the band that came with the versa fit more flush to my wrist and I like the fit MUCH better than I did with the Blaze. I also love that there is no casing around the device itself and that you can charge the Versa without removing the band.This tracker is also *very* accurate - probably the most accurate out of the 3 different model's I've owned! I always felt like my Blaze was missing steps if my arms were not always in motion when I walked (this posed a step tracking problem if I was carrying a child or a load of laundry, etc.), so much so that I would often take the Blaze out of the wristband and tuck it into the side of my bra because it registered more accurately when worn on my core (similar to the One) than it did on my wrist. The Versa seems to be extremely accurate - yes, I've counted steps and double checked on several occasions at times when I have been carrying something and at times when I've just been walking.While this is a lesser detail, I like the variety of free watch faces and the options to purchase watch faces. While I generally prefer a digital watch face, I work part time in the medical profession and having a digital watch with a second hand can be very helpful. The Versa covers both these bases!The heart rate monitor also seems to be very accurate.Cons: Probably the most common complaint about the Versa is the inaccurate sleep tracking. I'm among those who have experienced this issue, or me personally, this isn't a huge deal. Sure, I'd love it if the tracking were as accurate as the Blaze was, the inaccuracy of sleep tracking is a worthy sacrifice for the Versa being water resistant. Most nights, tightening the band one notch above my daytime wear fit does improve tracking. But, I do still get simplified sleep results or just downright cut short sleep results. Much of the time this can be improved by simply logging into the app and adjusting your awake time.
This is my second and my first smart watch. Set up was easy and took less than 30 minutes. I haven't used many of the features outside of the regular fitness tracker stuff but it is working flawlessly. Versa has a nice bright screen and I'm having lots of fun changing watch faces...there must be close to a million! It fits nicely and is neither too big or too small. So glad I got this cute smart watch!
PROS: I like this watch and think the design is sleek, simple, and clean. I love that there is a heart rate monitor that isn't bumped out so you get a smooth, flat back that doesn't dig into the wrist or leave pressure marks. Set up was easy--it took about 30 minutes, which was abundantly clear about, and there were lots of helpful instructions and images to make the process straightforward.CONS: The bands are really hard to change--the pin system is not highly functional, and it's very finnicky to actually get them into place. My major complaint about this watch, however, is that without GPS, running data is simply inaccurate. For the last five days, I've been wearing the Versa alongside my Garmin Forerunner, and the distance data for the Versa is consistently .2-.25 miles behind. For every mile I run with the Garmin, the Versa only reads at .75-.8 miles run, which is especially frustrating since the sales consultant I spoke with at assured me that the Versa was capable of accurately tracking distance without GPS.
Bought this for my father. Tested for several days with Google Pixel and got very positive impression. It does not feel bulky, sits well on the wrist, syncs with the phone, battery survived for 4 days as promised.My father though has OnePlus One and he does have sync issues from time to time. It's not a big deal but a bit annoying. Would require manual sync or watch restart from time to time.Ended up buying for myself as well.Update 2: It took a couple of emails (including sending a photo) to get a replacement. Nice, efficient and polite support. It took me some time to figure out that I need to "forget" old device and reboot the phone before trying to register new device. But as soon as I've done that - no issues. Back to 4 starsUpdate 1: Was very excited until summer. Suddenly it appeared they do not need too much to fall apart (at least for me). California summer is good enough. The screen fell off the body while being on my hand just out of the blue. I guess the glue is not very reliable. Trying to contact support, will see how it goes.
So far so good! I've only had the Versa for a few days but I love it so far. It's pretty, comfortable, and functional. Battery life is good. It has multiple apps and customizable watch faces. It can play music you load onto it. You cannot reply to texts but you can get notifications. I like that the watch bands are customizable. Tracks sleep and multiple types of exercise. No built in GPS but I don't mind carrying my phone. Overall, it's a hit with me!
From the POV of what health metrics this can track, its basically the same as the charge 3. However this adds a few smart watch features to it, and puts it in a more smart-watch-ey form factor.What I like:+ APPEARANCE: Its subjective, but I think it looks better than the Charge 3; It looks more like a watch.+ SCREEN: its larger and more responsive. the charge 3 was pretty sluggish, and i think the screen was too small to be effective at times. The Versa can show more info at a glance w/o swiping than the Charge 3 can. Also, color is a nice addition, and is taken advantage of well.+ AUTO-BRIGHTNESS: The auto brightness actually works, so I'm not blinded by it at 3AM, or I'm not unable to see it in full daylight. This was one of my biggest complaints about the Charge 3.+ COMFORT: I think the flat base of the Versa is more comfortable than the sensor-bubble the Charge 3 has. I also think the slightly wider band is more comfortable.+ WATCH FACES: TBH, I didn't like any of the Charge 3 watch face options, but there are a TON for the Versa. My favorite is Thexa.+ BATTERY LIFE: The 3-4 days figure seems accurate. I think this is a major selling point over things like the various Apple watch versions who have a listed battery life of < 24h (i think?). This lends it to be worn to sleep for sleep tracking.What I didn't like:- DAILY STATS: Swiping up to view your daily stats takes longer than I'd like. It takes about 2.5s for me, during which time, it just displays the logo. It may be able to be improved in an update, but from what I can tell, those are infrequent.- WIFI: When initially setting it up, I tried to enter my WiFi details, but it wouldn't connect. Despite the network being of the type allowed, I think my password was too long or something. In any case, it was able to be connected after the initial setup.- BANDS: I have yet to find a band that is suitable for me both while typing with a wrist rest, and while working out (I sweat A LOT), so I usually swap the band before and after working out. However, this mechanism can be a bit tricky. The Charge 3 was a lot easier.
Ok, not an exercise buff, but like that it's a watch, and I can see my daily steps, heartrate, can monitor my sleep patterns and set alarms on it too. Did I mention it alerts me to phone calls and messages too?! I have fun changing up my clock face display now and then. Quite a few options for that! I bought a clear cover for it because my husband says that I am the " master of disaster "! Ok, he's right about that! Love how well it protects this pricey purchase. Fun and fairly easy to use. Love this and very happy with it. ( although it says it's waterproof, I NEVER immerse mine in water. Splash, yes, but NOT immerse. ) That's just me, don't really need to take the risk.
Loving my Versa!* First of all, I received my watch on the day of release, which I kind of expected from , although delivery was estimated for Wednesday! ?** I ordered the rose gold so I can pair it up with a rose gold band. The color of the rose gold band I purchased was a little off but it was livable. The vendor actually sent me an improved color match so I'll see how that works out. I like my smartwatch to look like a regular watch so this was one of my criterias in choosing the Versa.*** I installed apps and figured out other capabilities one by one during the week and they were all awesome! Versa had more precise stats than my moto 360.**** It took me awhile to download music but found articles in the community conveniently.***** I love all the features that moto 360 didn't have especially the sleep monitor. Now I can honestly say that I don't sleep enough so will need to improved that!****** Yup, that's my sixth star! The Versa is much smaller than my moto 360 so it looked much better on my small 6.3 inch wrist! Hubby said that and I agree!Hence, thank you and I love my Versa! ?
I've been wanting a smartwatch/fitness tracker for a while now but I've never quite found one I thought was worth buying. Either I didn't like the looks or thought it was too expensive and this device solved both of those issues for me. Battery life is a little over 4 days with 24/7 use and the steps tracker seems accurate except for registering a few steps while driving or while moving around while on my office chair but nothing substantial. The sleep tracking kinda blew my mind when I first used it as this was one thing I had my doubts about but so far seems to nail when I've fallen asleep or woken up. App selection isn't huge but does offer enough for me and there's plenty of watch faces to change things up. I was concerned about the difficultly in swapping out bands based on reviews but I've had no issues swapping them out. My only issues I've had so far is using it to control music and being able to read texts from my Android phone. I've followed the directions and read a few forums and looks like I'm not the only one with these issues. Overall I think this is a great smartwatch that has good battery life, doesn't cost too much and looks good. Definitely a good buy

I upgraded from a Blaze to the versa, and so far am not disappointed. I like how small it is, and the battery seems to easily last 4 days or more. Compared to the Apple Watch, this is a huge advantage. I would like to see the watch faces be more customizable like the Apple Watches are, but there are still a ton of good community created watch faces available for download.Two complaints in comparison to my Blaze: the watch band is very hard to remove and replace. The blaze was very easy. Also, the Versa is not as responsive to the wrist raise... often the screen does not illuminate when you raise the watch, compared to the Blaze. But otherwise, it is a great product! Hopefully the battery lasts more than a year this time.
Does everything it says it will do. Not 100% accurate (my biggest gripe is it not counting 30 minutes on the stair climber as steps OR flights of stairs) but it does the most you can expect.There are a few tricks that take some getting used to, such as how to make the stopwatch readily accessible if that's one of the major things you want; but Google has all the answers.Biggest pro: The battery life is RIDICULOUS. I wear it 24/7 and charge it when I shower and have not had a problem. I've even gone 2 days at a time and the lowest I've seen it is like 40%.Second biggest pro: it looks pretty cool and is pretty much indistinguishable from an Apple Watch to the casual observer. My only gripe would be that the fit bit "peach" is really just pink �� It's not as neutral as Apple's "sand".Biggest CON: Trying to replace the strap is a BITCH. I ordered 3 different sport straps off and spent about 30 mins on each one. It got to the point where I was concerned I had scratched the little pinhole so much that no band would ever stay in place. But I got the original band back on and so far so good. Have come to the conclusion that I need to just order the bands from , but haven't even tried that yet. And as far as I can tell, none of the other bands have rose gold buckles. Not a huge deal, most people wouldn't notice, but I would know. So , if you're listening, please make a white and a black sport band with rose gold buckle, k thnx.
Quick setup! Super cute! Already customized my wrist band, bezel shell case, and added. Glass shield screen protector. I've had this watch on for 3 hours and the battery has gone down 8 percent from 89%. 20-30 minute setup. Step by step walkthrough. The only thing I didn't like is that a charging block didn't come with it. I love my new clock screen! There are plenty of free ones to choose from but I fell in love with mine! Only 99cents and there's a 5 day trial on it. It's super comfy and light. I'm so happy I could care less about that Apple Watch I had planned on getting for two times the amount of this one. I'm debating on whether or not I want to upgrade my pandora account to utilize the offline streaming on the watch.... I like how I can see my calls and texts on my watch for my iPhone. I don't care about the response part. I know I was all over the place but all in all, I love the watch!
So far I love it! Still learning how to use it but its really cute I love that I can change up the face whenever and change the bands too! something more feminine when I'm out or at work and then something for exercising. That's the thing that always bothered me before with is how ugly they were but this one is cute! I am a loyal user I like their app and I love competing with my family who also use . Hopefully it holds up well I'm on day one! :)
So far so good. I'm a little disappointed that hasn't upgraded some programming since my first purchase of a product 4 years ago. Specifically, there is still not enough choice of activities (e.g. no dancing/aerobics/zumba) nor, apparently, is there any way to import data from other major fitness apps (i.e. samsung gear fit, google fit, huawei fit). Nonetheless, I like the Versa and am super happy I can leave it on in the pool. I would buy it again as long as it lasts longer than the last two products I had.
I've had this for a few days and I like it more than my Apple Watch as far as what I use it for. The interface with the challenges and workout tracking is so much better than Apple health, and so I was wearing a and an Apple Watch. I love that it integrates the best of the two - style, notifications and information, easy access to control music, etc like the Apple Watch, and gives me the functionality of a . The only downside of the Versa is that the bands are not as easy to change as the Apple Watch. It's not a huge deal, and it's still pretty easy, but being able to slide the bands on and off with the Apple Watch was a plus. With the Versa, there are pins with little "easy release" levers on them. Still, it sure beats wearing two devices!
Best watch I've ever had. It's so much better than the blaze (which was the last watch I had). I love that it is waterproof up until 50 meters. Can't wait to wear it while swimming. I love the brighter screen and the wrist band is so much more comfortable than the one that came on the . No need to change immediately unless you're looking for metal or leather wrist band.I have found no cons yet since I received it on Tuesday April 17th.I love that there are apps on this watch and more to come.
So far I love it. I got it when it came out 5 days ago. The battery was at 90%. Its Friday and its at 39%. I love the fact that it looks more like a watch then a tracker.
Does everything as promised.Easy to set up and user friendly.Very comfortable to wear, I bought this model as I swim a lot and it's water resistant. I would buy this again.

The Versa works VERY well at tracking my heart rate and steps, plus can also correctly monitor bike rides, swims and weight-lifting sessions.I'd always expected to get an Apple watch someday, but when it was suggested we get a pulse-monitoring watch by our Keto diet coach, it quickly became obvious that this Versa does a better job at the essential tasks than the Apple alternative (even though we use Apple products for all our computing needs.)The better strap and ability to pay bills handsfree in places Apple Pay doesn't work is well worth the added cost of this edition of the Versa. I also like its relative thinness compared to many other watches, and the ease of reading its large display. I hadn't expected to care about its ability to display incoming text messages, identify incoming phone calls, and display upcoming calendar events, but am finding all three features useful daily. The alarm feature is also extremely flexible and useful. The watch faces are very configurable, and fortunately include one that displays hour, minute and second in large clear numerals, along with day, month, year, current heart rate, percentage of charge, and how many steps I've taken so far today.The only feature I haven't bothered with yet is the ability to load 300 MP3 songs and play them back via a Bluetooth headset, mainly because my iPhone can already do that for my entire music library.
Update 1/27/19It won't hold a charge longer than a day now. I have restarted it and it still happens. I guess it's life has come to an end. It's been a little less than a year and I got a lot of use and loved it but sure wish it lasted longer.Update- 11/12/18I was hasty in my negative update. I had the thought it might just be the clock face I had on my right then and it was. I changed it to the regular face..it worked. Then I changed it back to the one I want....and it worked! Back to 5 stars.Update- 11/11/18This has been the best health tracker I've used. BUT Just today my screen stopped showing my steps, calories, and heart rate. It still shows the time. So strange to me. I'm hoping it can do a update/refresh or something and fix its self. I lowered it to 2 stars (instead of 1) because itis still at least syncing with my phone so I'm able to keep track through that for now.--------------------------------I just got it a few days ago and it is everything I wanted. I love the size and quality of the screen. I had the alta HR before and decided to go for a change. So fun! I love that I can get it fully wet with no worry. I'm enjoying having a timer on my wrist and setting alarms from my watch instead of my phone now. The coaching is cool! I love seeing all the stats from the phone app on my wrist. The leaderboard is neat. I haven't put music on it yet. Anyway, awesome smartwatch!
My first smart watch/activity tracker. It's a very solid device with a few minor-ish annoyances... such as the quick-view capability not being that reliable and the device, even in "manual screen on" mode still turns on occasionally by itself. I have gotten into creating my own custom watch faces and if you know anything about programming, it's super easy and fun. I really dislike the charger though. You can't put a case on the device and charge it at the same time... boo. The charger is awkward and doesn't really allow the watch to sit flat and steady while charging. It charges very quickly however and holds the charge for at least a few days. The new quick replies are sweet and hope expands that functionality in the coming months. This is a solid 4 star device... for $200 that's a solid deal.
I got this watch as a replacement for Garmin Frontrunner 35 Here are my notes on :I like:Design �C the watch is beautiful. It comes with extra wrist bands in the box, small and large size. One set of plastic (rubber?) bands, one set of fabric bands, both S and L, so 4 bands in the box.Touch screen �C download any clock face design, or add your own photo to display. Hundreds of designs to choose from, some animated, very high-resolution display.Apps �C install or uninstall different apps to itMove nudge �C Instead of just saying MOVE it tells you how many steps you have left in this hour �C 10 min notification before an hour is over.Coach app is amazing �C walks you thru many different exercise routines, with video displayed right on the watch.Track your diet, water intake, female health (menstrual cycle, ovulation, etc)Sleep tracking report is a lot more detailed than GarminWifi capabilityUpload 300 songs and play it thru your phone or car or external speaker via bluetooth. I haven't loaded that yet though.Highly customizable, change any setting, add or remove things, very easy to use.Do not likeThe pedometer is poorly calibrated. It counts crocheting as steps. I was at 5k steps by noon and I didn't get off my ass all morning. Then I proceeded to cook for the next 30 min, which the watch counted as 30 min on elliptical. This is a major flaw.The screen has to be woken up to display time. Normally it wakes up by itself when you move your hand to see the watch face, but sometimes it doesn't.Very few apps, although I am sure there are more apps coming out for all the time.Some apps crash or won't work �C Spotify, Air Index. Apps are written by third-party developers, so there is no guarantee they will work. However, apps developed by work flawlessly.I added alarm last night, and it did not go off. We overslept.Overall I enjoy this watch very much. The biggest test is yet to come, though - let's see how it behaves in the ocean water.
2019-03-10: One month in, and I'm still in love with it! Maybe even more than in the beginning. I have had no bad experiences, no hardware or software issues. It syncs to my phone/the app perfectly. GPS works great for tracking walks and runs. The heart rate monitor seems sensitive and accurate (although I don't have anything else to compare it to). Step-tracking seems to work perfectly. The stair/elevation tracking is a little misleading because it only tracks if you increase elevation at least 10 feet in one "go", but that's probably about as good as the technology in a teeny wrist watch will get. I'm OK with it.I typically put the device on the charger while I'm in the shower, but it's gone 3 days or so without charging and only got down to 30-some percent, which seems like great battery life to me... (It is waterproof and I've worn it while doing dishes and cleaning my fish tanks with no issues.)I love love love the notifications - this allows me to always keep my phone on silent, which I prefer to accidentally having my phone go off at the wrong moment. The discreet vibration and abbreviated message on the screen is all I need to see to know who's messaging/calling/emailing me and I can decide whether or not I need to even look at my phone. This is a total game changer. Yeah, it's another device to look at, but I definitely pick up my phone LESS now than before, because I already know what the notification is. It's perfect. Amazing.As far as the actual point of the : YES I am more active - I want to close those circles on the steps and active minutes. I've been walking the dog and going to the gym more than ever. I drink more water. I go to bed earlier. I want those stars! At the same time, I'm also careful not to let it take over my life and sometimes a day of relaxation is a good thing - Last Sunday I didn't even make 3,000 steps and I was OK with that. I drank wine and read a whole book! Everything in moderation. :-)Generally: fitness trackers seem like a good thing! Use it to help inspire you to reach your goals. Get your friend one, too, for a little camaraderie and competition!2019-02-09: I have wanted a fitness tracker for a while, not because I'm a gym rat (although I do go to the gym at least once a week) nor do I want to lose weight, but my profession is sedentary and I wanted the reminder to stay active. Something wearable was perfect for me because I have been wearing a watch daily for years, but I never owned (or wanted) a smart watch.The Versa seems like the perfect balance between high-tech and low-tech for me. It's attractive, discreet (I have several fashionable analog wristwatches that are much larger), and SHOCKINGLY lightweight. Since my job is corporate/professional, I opted for an alternative metallic band, which I think adds to the beauty.The watch's functionality is perfect for me. I love that it doesn't try to do too much, and that all of the fitness stuff is easily accessible. Being mindful of being active and healthy is huge when you're busy - it can really get away from you to just drink water and stand up from your desk. I also really like the deep-breathing "game". I'm excited to use the coaching activities. I wore the watch to my hour long HIIT class at the gym and was satisfied to see the heart rate stats reflect the intensity of the work out. Go me!The smartphone app is engaging and the animations are cute and captivating to keep you interested in meeting your goals. I love the water-logging feature and I really appreciate the woman's health tracker. The sleep stats are FASCINATING. My husband got a Versa at the same time and we are really enjoying comparing our sleeps!I would warn people looking for a smart watch to keep looking. The features and user interface are extremely basic. It's a fancy activity tracker in the body of a smart watch. Don't be fooled or get your hopes up.I've only been using the watch for a few days, but I'm excited to see my fitness and health trends take shape. I'd very easily recommend it to anyone looking for the same application. I'll come back and update this review in the future once I've had a chance to plunge the depths of what else it can help me achieve. :-)
I don't wear watches, I don't like the way they fit on my wrist. But I bought this hoping that it would help me be more active and get me motivated to be healthier. So far so good. I have had this for a little over a month and I have to say that it is helping a lot. When I first got it I was having a lot of trouble with my left knee. It was getting to the point that I thought I was going to have to go to the doctor about it. But after a week of being more active because of the watch my knee pain is completely gone. I am in no way saying that this is a medical solution if you are having knee pains but, being more active has helped a lot. It monitors sleep and you can log in other things like water intake and what you eat. It has an alarm and other functions that you will learn as you go along, that's how I've done it. I have not tested it under water, it has gotten wet a few times but still works fine. I don't wear it all the time. I take it off when I shower and sometimes when I go to bed I leave it on the charger. The battery life lasts about 5 to 6 days for me, and that's great. The only few problems I can honestly say I have is that I have big hands and wrists so sometimes when I'm exercising my hand will push the button on the side and pause my workout or finish it and I have to start it over. The band also seems to irritate my skin on one side. I'm most likely going to have to buy a different band but for now I will keep aloe vera on it. I do recommend this product. If you have questions that I can answer please just ask.
I can't tell you how much I love this very pretty watch. I never really liked my clumpsy looking Samsung Classic Watch even though it did everything my phone did. It was just ugly. This is beautiful I get compliments, it give me great information about my sleep, exercise, steps & I get my text messages, can reply with quick response and I have the best watch face called "Bloom." It starts as a small bud and it turns into a beautiful full bloomed flower when you meet your step goal each day. It's very classy and pretty. I actually get compliments on my fitness watch, imagine that!
I'd had a WearOS Smartwatch for several years (ASUS Zenwatch 2) which did all the smartwatch things, but wasn't terrific for activity tracking. I got my wife a alta HR for Christmas. She wore it one day and decided she didn't like it. After it sat there a couple of weeks unused, I asked if I could try it. So for a week or two I wore my smartwatch on one wrist and the alta on the other (what a geek). The alta could provide some notifications, but the smaller display prevented it from replacing my smartwatch. Then I saw the Versa and decided to give it a try. It's far superior to my Zenwatch2 as far as activity tracking, provides all the notifications from my Android phone, really fits all my needs. I rarely tried to send messages from my watch or anything like that, so the Versa does everything I need. The only thing I miss is not having a Duo Mobile app on it. My employer uses Duo for two factor authentication. The WearOS watches can approve these by tapping on the notification on the watch. The Versa can't do that, meaning I have to dig my phone out of my pocket and approve the request there. That's about the only time I miss my old watch.I'm consistently getting 4+ days on a charge, and suspect I could stretch it to 5 some times, but haven't tried it. The step counter seems to be more accurate than my smartwatch was, and my smartwatch didn't provide any of the other activity data. The reminders to "Move Around" 10 minutes before every hour are what my wife didn't like on the alta. I guess I've been married long enough I can just ignore those nags ;-). I know I can control them, but the concept is good. It's just that having a job sitting in front of a computer 9 hours a day isn't conducive to lots of movement. If I'm up already, I have wandered around more to get the recommended steps in, so it has modified my behavior a little.
I got the Versa because I wanted to try a smart watch without having to buy an expensive Apple Watch. The is comfortable to wear and looks nice. I like that it tracks my heart rate and steps. What I really wanted was to see my notifications on my watch. This watch allows you to see your notifications and will even vibrate to remind you of events on your phone calendar. It is lacking in a couple areas. One�� you can see your notifications but you cannot interact with them at all. It also only shows text, so if someone texts you a gif or emoji it shows up as a blank message. It also doesn't consistently give me my notifications, but that could be a phone setting issue. Second�� the available apps are limited. You can play music, but only from a couple platforms. You cannot play music, audible, Scribd, podcaster... Also, the fertility tracking app for is ridiculously limiting. It is possibly the worst tracking I have ever seen. Since that is in the realm of health, I think it should be a lot better. It is effectively unusable.So while this is a cheaper option than others and has heart rate tracking and such, there are still some limitations. It is waterproof�� so I can wear it in the pool. Battery lasts about 3 days on one charge. And you can customize the watch face to your liking.
I love the way this works. I previously use a Charge 2 and decided to get the new Versa. When you on this new own when you get more than 3 hours sleep it tells you they type of sleep you had (light, REM, deep) based on heart rate which was an upgrade from the wake, restless and deep sleep from before. You can set a workout reminder for steps per hour and it will buzz a reminder about 10 minutes (time frame I have set) to get my minimum steps in before the end of the hour. I really like that I can easily change the picture on my watch face through the app.I would give it 5 stars but it seems to be more sensitive to movement than the old . I spent most of my time in a car on a recent road trip and it registered 31 floors climbed and I didn't have 1 flight of stairs. I continue to use the on my non-dominate wrist.
Great looking at a perfect size. Easy to set up right out of the box. Great tracker features Plus sinks with 's app. Live exercise stats on your wrist and great detail page at the end of the workout. Smartwatch features are adequate with more to come. No trouble getting 4 days Plus on the battery.
I think in life you are either a fit bit person or an Apple watch person.This review is for the fit bit lovers out there.Preface note: I am allergic to Nickel and other metals, and I have NO allergic reactions to this watch.I have owned a few other fit bits in the past... I lost both sure to the poor clasp design, so it took me a while to get up the courage to invest in a 3rd fit bit, but I'm glad I waited and chose this one. I am an active person, more of a gym rat than a runner, so I can't speak to the running functions of this watch, but as a full-time college student, also working 2 jobs, this lets me keep an eye on how much I've been working and active I've been, when I need to refuel my body, how I'm sleeping (my favorite function). It also lets me know when I get a text or call, which is super helpful at work or in a class where being on your phone is frowned upon, and I keep my phone on silent all the time.I also love this color because I can put a metal or leather band on it, and it makes it looks less like a fitness watch and more like a general smartwatch. The metal is slightly more pink tones than I would have preferred, but the different bands really tone that down for my personal preference. It's more of a pink metal than a coppery gold that can also fall into the "rose gold" category.
I purchased because like so many things in life I need to improve my health. I love fit and finish quality is there. I've only had it for a day and I like it so far. I just whish they could design it for biomedical uses. The watch has a heart rate moniter but why not O2 and ekg capability also could be designed to accept input from a sensor gets blood glucose. I am a type 2 diabetic so I am using the software to help improve my bg. I just whish would explore biomedical applications for the watch it would be a hit for health care providers to use to obtain data to help treat a number of chronic condions.I love its customisian of watch face applications. As far as payments goes I generally use my android phone nfc would be better served to use as a method data storgae like medications health conditions etc.This watch band is tricky to remove but I already figured a trick the bank has be installed at 45 degree angle then it is easy.Good watch lots of potential. My only bone pick is nickle dime for watch faces and applications they are not free nor is there many for now. I'm enjoying I hope they add on many more devices that can expand biomedical applications thru blue tooth example glucomter temp sensors ekg etc O2 sensors
My first was a Charge HR and this Versa is my third. The ever expanding capabilities are lovely, though I don't need them all. I do like the reminders quite a lot. As a writer, I can forget to get up an move when I work and that little vibration on my wrist is probably very good for me. That said, I did experience the same thing many others have reported. My Versa simply couldn't sync after the first couple of days without a great deal of bother. Unlinking, restarting of bluetooth, restarting the watch...all of it. Very frustrating. I've just got a new phone, and there was some additional bother getting that set up, but we'll see if the sync stays put on this one.One major flaw was that I put it on all day sync. On my old phone (S7) it took it down about 24% a day, but didn't adversely impact the Versa. On this new phone, it drained 100% of the entire charge of the Versa in 16 hours. I turned it off and recharged my Versa, and so far, it looks okay. BUT, I will monitor it rather more closely. I'll have to be sure to use the app daily now in order to ensure it syncs and I don't lose my active hours history (which doesn't seem to carry over from one day to the next).
This little device does a lot.While it is sort of a smart watch, it sort of isn't, too. But what it does, it does well.The good:- Excellent selection of watch faces, including cute, clever, big, pretty, etc. You can change your face every day to match your clothes if you want.- If I understand correctly, you can use it with other services, like Spark People.- measures pulse, steps, miles. Tracks exercise on demand.- motivates in numerous ways. Reminders to stand up, encouragement to finish your goal steps for the hour, challenges, even "travel" challenges that are longer term.- large userbase. You can network with more of your friends on than on any other fitness watch.- big face without losing attractiveness- large variety of replacement bands available from third parties, some very pretty.- Can be used with many other fitness applications.- Detects sleep surprisingly accurately- Lots of settings options- A decent number of apps available- Handles the shower well- If you never have to take it off except to charge, it's harder to lose it.- Charges very quickly- The charger is an awesome design and easy to use- You can always have your alarms with you so you never miss them.The irritating- All changes have to be made through the app.- If you don't sync often enough, it loses your data- Sync can take a long time.- The battery life is considerably shorter than I expected. It's about 2 1/2 days if I have constant sync turned off.- Don't even bother with constant sync unless you're willing to take it off to charge a lot.- All the music apps are paidAll in all, though, the pros are big and the cons are small. Enough that it still warrants a 5 star review.
Love this ! I have an Alta HR and I used it for a long period of time before ultimately forgetting I had it and not really caring to use it again. It was a great little watch, but I really wanted something with more capabilities that made me rely on my phone app less. Having the Versa is great with all of it's features and apps. I was really sold on the ability to add my own music and use my bluetooth headphones when I work out instead of bringing my phone with me. There's a bunch of different clock faces and the display is a perfect size. Love having my Starbucks app, weather app, and Pandora. I'm still learning all that this model can do. But I love it so far!I was worried it would look huge and clunky on my wrist but it's actually a perfect size. The set up was really straight forward. It took about half an hour, but that didn't bother me. I like the charging port for this too! I bought screen protectors with mine because I am worried the screen would get scratched over time like what happened with my Alta.
Great quality, the charger is also great .Very sensitive and has a lot of beautiful background . I would highly recommend to whoever is trying to lose weight, keep remind me how many steps are left and also notice you every day that you have to drink water more and more .Price sounds a little higher than usual but it worth it.
Updated Review 2/12/2019��I had a Pebble and loved it. introduced the Versa just after buying Pebble. This is very much a successor in terms of battery life and how light it is.I'm adding to my original review to give some perspective on a few things I think are important when buying a smartwatch. 1st, don't undersell how important battery life is. I gave my original Versa away recently and bought a Ticket Watch (Watch OS). It promised 1.5 days of battery. Fine, I figured. I usually don't wear my watch at night anyway. The problem is that to get that much batter life you have to be conscious of how you're using the watch. I was constantly not using it for fear the battery would die..which it did anyway. The Versa takes that stress away. Easily 4 days.The second consideration is how the watch feels. Don't talk yourself into a watch that looks to big, because it most likely will feel too big. The Tic Watch and many of the Samsung watches are heavy and thick. You're always aware when you have one of those watches on. The Versa is almost weightless. So easy to wear it sleep with.In conclusion, I've gone from Tizen to Wear OS looking for a watch that could beat the Versa for what I want a watch for, but I keep coming back.One last note: if I had an iPhone I would not buy a Versa. Apple locks things down hard for third party devices. You lose text replies, which are a huge benefit to wearing a smart watch.

I jumped into the pool when the day's temperature was probably hovering about 63 degrees Fahrenheit in NJ. The device got fried, the screen display was completely black and unresponsive, including the sensors at the back (usually has a green light). I got home and charged the fitibit versa and it looks like it showed me that it was back to normal by showing me the watch and how much charge it had; claims that it had a 95% charge. I left it overnight and when I found it around 7 AM, the device was completely off and no active sensors on the back. The whole square watch (front & back) was hot to the touch. I notice there are teeny-tiny droplets of condensation on the sensor windows, at the back of the watch. I called FitiBit customer service and they were very courteous and efficient. They sent me a return label so I can have it returned and a new one will be sent back to me. I'll be hesitant to used this again in the pool, but I'll probably make that mistake again. And if I do, I'll update this review.Prior to the pool, I was happy with this device. I loved that it reminds me to get up and be active. I love that I can check weather on my watch. I also love that the steps I take and the distance I have covered is tracked daily. I miss it. I can't wait to have my Versa back.
Enjoying this watch. Slimmer than my blaze 2. I enjoy the woven band but it started to smell after a month of dead skin. Easily hand washed to freshen up. I prefer this to the Apple Watch due to the sleep technology.
I repeat, DO NOT WEAR WITHOUT A SCREEN PROTECTOR. Sorry for all the all-caps but I swear to you I didn't hit anything, run in to anything, put it in a bag with sharp pointy objects, and yet, within one week, there's a scratch down the face of it. I love everything else about the watch, which is why it still gets 4 stars, but good grief, the glass is pathetic.That being said, I put a screen protector on it and the scratch is mostly invisible now, but the feeling you get when you notice the thing you spent $160 on a week ago is already damaged is indescribable.So please. When you buy this watch (and you should), don't even take it out of the box to try on until you have a screen protector ready to go.
I got this as an upgrade to my older Charge 2 and I immediately got a new band for it (milanese stainless steel with the magnetic latch). The one thing I learned with my earlier s was they can build a decent tracker (and I mostly like the Android app) they could not for the life of them build a band for them. This one may be better, but I'll never know. The metal bands work for me and I'm happy with them. As for the unit itself, I did go ahead and link it to one of my credit cards so I could use it to pay (and that worked the one time I've used it) so I could see that being kind of handy if you do that sort of thing. You do need to unlock it every time you do that so be aware that it's not a lot less painful to use the tracker versus dragging out a credit card or using the wireless pay app on your phone (which mine also requires an unlock, but ymmv). I really like getting the emails on the tracker, but most other higher-end smartwatches / trackers will do. I have had to do a hard shutdown (force close) on the app to reset it and get it to sync again. I think this is more related to the phone app than it is the tracker, but I could be wrong. I do wish there was a way to do a hard reset on the tracker itself, but so far either that isn't an option or I haven't figured out how to do it. That's likely more of a reflection on my working in IT than it is on the device needing a reset option. Figuring out how to reset the app on my phone seems to have resolved any issues I've had so that likely isn't necessary. I also opted to get a screen protector and have already trashed one of the six that came in the package, so I can't comment on how easy it is to scratch the glass. I was a bit worried about how the band attached to the tracker, but so far the 'pins' don't stick out far enough that I've noticed them while wearing it. I did try it for a day with the stock band it ships with and it was OK, I just like the durability of a metal band versus the one it came with. Would I buy it again? Yeah, I would. I'm not sure I would opt for the 'special edition' version since I almost never use the payment feature, but it does work and if you use that on your phone my guess is that having that on your wrist would really be nice.
Okay, so I've had the product for over four months and I am pleased to report that the was a great tool in losing weight! I am a woman who stands at 5'1" and I weighed 135 in April when I purchased the device and now I weigh 112. I am so pleased! ^_^ I think that the reminders and calorie counting on the app (along with intermittent fasting), all worked together to create the perfect weight loss conditions for my weirdo body. So let's break this device down and let you know my thoughts!Product Design:It's alright. I can't say that I am blown away by the design but it's okay. You can trade out the bands with cheapies you can find online so you're not stuck with the same old colors. The watch face is a bit large for my petite wrist, so keep that in mind if you're small. However, if you're a normal sized person you should be okay.User Experience/User Interface:This is an area that I think could use a little work. The touch targets and gestures are somewhat intuitive but I had difficulty with the exercise modes (Do I press this icon to start? Do I press the side button? The corner? Why is this not working?! ***swipe swipe swipe***). The app for iOS also needs more fine tuning. Seriously. The watch faces section is a hot mess and really should be curated (perhaps allow the user to sort by favs? Maybe give the user the power to delete the ratchet looking ones?).Customer Service:Oh, did I tell you that my product just. . . died? It did. had me record a video of it dead with a special serial number. They replaced it in a week. Excellent customer service.So, would I recommend it? Yeah, I think it can work for you (I feel I am a success story!) and did have excellent customer service. But I want to reiterate that should really focus some of their efforts on updating the UXUI to make the experience more delightful. And the product is a tad large, so smaller people should keep that in mind.
I justified spending the money by saying it would "motivate me" & honestly it DOES! I'm not a fitness minded person for the most part, I sit at a desk all day. Getting older, thinking about my heart. On the app you set your goals- steps per day, steps per hour, etc. Your wrist will buzz to remind you "You have x number of steps to reach your goal!" For me, this reminds me "GET UP & walk down the hall & back, or SOMETHING". By the way, when you go grocery shopping you have to push the cart 1 handed or steps dont get counted, ugh, LoL. Live & learn.My calendar on my phone bluetooths to & I have reminders set to "Drink water!!". I'm liking the freedom from having my phone on hand all the time. An alarm or reminder goes off & there's no sound to embarrass me if I'm with a customer, I just glance at my wrist, I think "got it" & a quick tap & that's it. I've been logging my water intake on the app. That's helpful because I find myself wanting to "finish this glass so I can log it" hahaha! They want you to exercise 3 times a week. I struggle with finding time to do this, but when I do- I like that it tells you when you're done how long you went, calories burned, distance & some other stuff I can't remember LoL. The watch tells you in a quick glance where you stand with your goals for the day & how many of the 3 times you've exercised for the week.Battery life, mine can go 3-4 days & I keep the "screen wake" on auto not manual. I downloaded a pretty background (for $1.50) that matches the tattoo on my other arm so I like for my screen to pop on a lot LoL. I'll let it get down to 20%ish....not sure how long it takes to charge cuz I do it overnight..... which brings me to my ONLY complaint about this watch.Sleep tracker SUCKS. HUGE disappointment. Some nights I sleep like a rock then I'll toss & turn all night for a week. I was REALLY hoping this watch would help me see patterns to help me figure out what's up with these restless nights. Nope. You go onto the app, tap "I'm in bed", sleep, then tap "I'm awake" when your up. Simple. This is typical for mine- go to bed 10:30pm wake up at 5. Tracker shows- 1:43am- 3:56am. I learned on the app "community" you can "edit" the time, but "edit" won't let you back up before midnight! How dumb!!! Grrrrrr! This feature is about worthless, to me. That's the ONLY reason I didn't give 5 stars.Overall, very pleased with my purchase! I love the look of it (I was worried it was going be huge & look like a wall clock on my arm, but it's not) LOTS of ways to customize. I really am more aware of getting up & moving & make better attempts at actual exercising. Very happy with my purchase!
great watch for its price. Cannot totally compare it to apple watch. The battery definitely lasts for 4 days which and it has been proved that versa tracks accurately compared to apple watch.
My main concern was how accurate this is as far as heart rates go. Luckily I have access to heart rate monitors and was able to compare. I've posted a video/ picture. Now this is my heart rate after moderate amount of activity. Have not tested accuracy during exercise.

I was orphaned by Nike when they announced via email in mid April 2018 that internet and app support for the Nike+ Fuelband was ending April 30. Thus my search for a replacement began.I started testing the waters with one of those under $30 fitness trackers and was ultimately disappointed. The app was awful, the device above average for the price point. It did expose me to a baseline for comparison. has a great app that can be used for multiple models, including the Versa. I like that it integrates heart rate, activity, sleep monitoring, goal setting (steps, calories, miles, etc) and (if the scale is equipped) weight monitoring. It is safe for use in wet environments whether shower or pool and all in all seems well built.I did order a new band and detaching and attaching was an effort. I don't know if there is a learning curve as I am not intending to swap bands on a regular basis. Note that while fiddling with the locking mechanism while trying to attach the band, I found the regular touching of the buttons and face of the Versa caused alarms to be set and settings/menus being entered/exited. No harm from it, but it added to the difficulty.Aside from the curiously difficult band replacement, after having used this device for about a week now, I'm pleased with the purchase and the additional capability that came with the app and supporting ecosystem.
I knew I wouldn't use all the features of an Apple Watch, but I also wanted more than what my Charge HR offered. This is it. I get the notifications I need, can track my runs and other fitness info, and can also do a few other things as well. I love the look and the size. (It's been mistaken for an Apple Watch multiple times.)A few other notes based on other feedback and questions I've seen:- Everything loaded quickly and intuitively (Follow. The. Instructions.) and it has worked flawlessly. No technical issues.- I've been getting 4-5 days on a charge.- I haven't found a perfect watch face, but the one I'm using is fine. I do wish I could save favorites as there's a couple I like for different purposes.- The band was easy to switch and has stayed on fine.- Step counts seem to be accurate, I'm getting results similar to my Charge HR.- The glass is sturdy, I've bumped/scraped it a few times already and no scratches to show for it.My only big dislike is the music apps. I don't like Pandora, and I'm not going to pretend to know what Deezer is. It needs Spotify, otherwise it's perfect for my needs.
Easy to use. I like being able to customize the screen and see all the various real-time stats. Disappointed it does not work with my Android phone to reject calls. Working on figuring out how to use it for music, as it arrived only a day ago.
Really nice watch! I like the look of it very smooth and keeps track of distance really well, better than Samsung galaxy gear 3 and better than Blaze both watches I have owned before this.
ACTUALIZADA: Finalmente opt�� por usar la app en mi iPad y ahora funciona perfectamente, es la mejor herramienta para hacer ejercicio que he comprado.Primero, la descripci��n del producto no es clara en cu��l es la versi��n que trae Pay, yo lo compr�� en gran parte por ello y la versi��n que me lleg�� no tiene esa funci��n. Adem��s, llevo casi una semana tratando de sincronizar el reloj con el tel��fono, he reiniciado, reconfigurado y 10 mil cosas m��s, tanto el reloj como el tel��fono y ha sido posible, ya me rend�� y voy a hacer la devoluci��n del reloj y los accesorios que hab��a comprado para ��l. Ten��a mucha ilusi��n con este dispositivo, pero no funciona para nada, y por lo tanto no es ��til.
I have had my Versa since September 2018 and found it to be very useful and reliable. I sync it with my iPod Touch with no problem. I also have synced it with my Android tablet. At first I had a problem with that device, and I have noticed that other users have complained about using Android devices with the . I have found out how to fix the problem.Before you try syncing with an Android device, set the sync function in the App to all day syncing. To do this, click on the Account icon then click on Versa and scroll up to get to All Day Sync and set it, then sync the watch. This usually cures the problem. Note that sometimes you will need to immediately repeat the sync to get all of the data transferred, as the data seems to get transferred in bunches. You do not need to leave it on All Day Sync after you are finished. One other thing. It appears that you do not need to pair the watch with the device. It seems the watch and the device can communicate without active pairing. Also, sometimes if your device is paired with other devices it can cause a problem communicating with the .Another cure for minor problems is to reboot the watch by clicking on the watch Settings icon, scrolling down to About, tapping it, and scrolling down to Shutdown and tapping that, then pressing the left button to restart the watch. This, for example, will restart the heart monitor if it is not working.
I was previously a surge owner but decided to take the plunge on a new product last year. Initially the product seemed to work well, had a few decent apps built in to it, and looked very stylish. Syncing was an issue for me almost immediately. For a product that claimed to sync continuously without opening the app or manually kicking off the syncing process, it almost never did. And if you went a couple of days without a successful sync, the process would take so long that the bluetooth connection would never stay stable long enough for a full sync process to run before it coming disconnected and having to restart the sync from the beginning. With the latest update (this year 2019), the syncing issue seems a bit better. The battery life is great (roughly 5 days for me and I use it to track weightlifting workouts 3+ times in that span in addition to daily/nightly normal tracking). Charges quickly and the fit is customizable enough to be comfortable for anyone I would think. The GPS running through the phone is not as effective as I would have hoped. It often comes unpaired in the middle of a run and then will revert to the old counting steps and using them to measure distance traveled rather than the more accurate GPS method. This issue too could possibly have been addressed with the latest update, but I have not attempted an outdoor run as of yet to know. All in all, if you are looking for a decent fitness tracking band for the money, this is a good bet. However, if you want more advanced features or a seamless integration of all the tracking capabilities, you may want to opt for a more expensive option.
This Versa smartwatch was purchased as a gift. The recipient loves it and wishes they had the Limited Edition version with the NFC chip feature that allows for secure payments. Battery life is great, you can get almost a week of use before recharging again. There are two things to note. One, the smartwatch does not ship with an adapter to charge it, only the charging cable. And two, the Sm and Lg bands as advertised seems untrue. Not that it was needed but the Lg band was there and the small band was only the piece with the holes. I still give it 5 stars because the recipient was happy they received the smartwatch as a gift and with the usefulness of the apps.
I was hoping this watch would do a little more than it does, but I'm still satisfied with it. I am not a fan of the limited apps and interaction I can have using this. I was hoping for a bit more from this watch than I'm actually able to do. My 17 month old loves it though, because he can make the screen do different things while he's sitting in the shopping cart. It has one baby/toddler focused app that keeps his attention for a little bit, but that one kills the battery faster than I'd like. I do enjoy that it keeps my stats like I was hoping, as it is a product. The step counter isn't as accurate, since sometimes my footsteps are softer than others.All in all, I'm happy with my purchase, but may keep an eye out for another smartwatch in the future.
I've had a flex and a charge, but this is my first with heart rate. So far it's pretty awesome. I like the apps, especially the water and calendar. Also love the new parent clock face, super useful with a newborn!Heart rate seems pretty good. Love the sleep monitoring. Also happy with how the back of the is plastic and not metal since I'm sensitive to nickel.I found setup clunky and had to restart phone and several times to pair. I have replaced the band already and find that to be a bit of a pain compared to my friends Apple watch. Otherwise, I'm happy I bought it! We shall see if I feel the same later!

So far so good. This one stays on my wrist, I lost a few of the older cheaper ones. Glad to have stair count, my personal motivator was absent in the last I had.

Here are a few of the reasons I love this watch:- It is cute, and I get compliment on it every day - I know, that's not the most important quality on a watch, but the other smart watches I looked at seemed bulky and masculine. I was told by a representative at Best Buy that the versa was designed primarily for women, and it shows.- Women's health - when you get your versa, the app on your phone will update to include a women's health section. It allows you to track your period and symptoms. It's a nice added bonus, since the app I was using before to track periods charges extra to track anything other than the period itself. You can also look on your watch to see how long you have til your period. Kinda nice.- Waterproof!!! - I've worn this watch for my water workout class, and it works like a champ in the pool. I love having a more accurate idea of how hard my body is working.- Hourly step reminders - the Versa doesn't just remind you to get up, it enourages you to get at least 250 steps per hour (and congratulates you when you do!). I have a desk job, so this has been a fun challenge.There are a lot more things I like about the Versa, but those are the ones that immediately come to mind.
I hesitated to purchase my Versa based on the poor reviews I had read, even though I'm a long time wearer. When my daughter-in-law bought one and had a good experience, I decided to go for it. Set up was easy, with the only hiccup being that it wasn't sending text notifications from Verizon's Message+ app (which I had to go on a chat with Support to find out). Once I switched to Samsung Message app, it was all good, and am also able to quick reply to texts, which is great. I got four days on a charge this time, but people need to realize that, just like with your phone, the more you use your Versa's apps, etc., the more quickly you're battery will drain. My daughter has an Apple Watch and has to charge it nightly. Charging is easy, the band does NOT need to be removed, just "pinch" the charger and it goes right in.
I'm loving it! Easy to set up, and I like all the features. Battery life is great too! This is my first . I am definitely more aware of how much I move, sleep, and eat now. Makes me more motivated to get up and move. I'm not a big exercise person, you will definitely not find me at the gym in my free time. This gave me the small unobtrusive motivation I needed tho, to get up, and move. I love the sleep tracking and the female cycle tracking also. The food diary/tracking is easy to use and I am now waaaaaaay more aware of the calories I am consuming.
What I like:The watch is very comfortable to wear and I forgot it was there minutes after I put it on for the first time.The thin profile easily slips under dress shirt cuffs .The battery life lasts for days even with frequent use.The screen is bright and vibrant.Good selection of watch faces and a few useful apps.What I don't like:Lack of ability to reply to texts on AppleAfter hitting clear all text messages, some messages don't go away.The music remote repeatedly will lose connection with the phone.These are all bugs that I'm sure will eventually address but if you look at the discussion boards you can see that people are having a wide range of tech issues and this watch was probably release half-baked. I'd rather wait for ready-tech than pay to be a guinea pig for a technology barely out of beta.Design issues:The thick bezel around the screen. The LED lighting makes blacks look gray and highlights the bad screen to bezel ratio.The logo on the front, Why?? None of the other smart watches do this.If this watch had an OLED display the battery life and image quality would improve, I would have been willing to pay more for the improvements.
There was nothing wrong with the Blaze, but after two years I was interested in the Versa's great features. I was also able to take advantage of a sale. NFC and water resistance pulled me in, but I've since found other reasons to love this watch. The touchscreen is much more responsive and reliable, I'm regularly using some of the apps and have downloaded a couple. It also looks great. It appears to have roughly the same excellent battery life as the Blaze, which puts the Apple Watch to shame. I get along just fine without some of the more powerful features offered by Apple and Samsung. I hope I still feel this way after wearing the Versa for a year or two.
I love my Versa, I swim with it daily and shower with it on. No problems what so ever, it is good for 50 meters in the water, much deeper than I will every go! I love it!

Love the Versa but I miss some of the previous features. I wish I could readily see the battery so that I could charge the at a convenient time. I missed the walking trails that I could follow alone. New features that are great is seeing calories burned and heart rate is always displayed. I've used the coach feature but I'm not fond of it on the maybe it's better on the phone. Not sure why I can answer a call or decline it from my since I need the phone to answer a call. A notification is all that's needed in my opinion. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
I personally tried another smart watch before I got the Versa because I wanted to see if I could get something cheaper. When it all boils down I just Really like the way makes their stuff and that fitness tracking is the top priority. I love How I can Easily start tracking my bike rides with a few pushes of a button. Before I would Have to go into a total separate bike app and go through all of these channels to finally get to tracking and now with my versa it automatically tracks it. Very pleased with my purchase. Worth the money in my opinion. I also love the clock face called "Nothing special" kudos to that creater!
I didn't want to get addicted to this thing, but it happened.... I preach about having "off line" time, yet I now have this piece which reminds me about messages and work outs, etc... but you can set it to tell you what you want it to remind you about what you don't - and it plays my music !!!! and i love that!!!! I bought a wireless head set for it after figuring out how to download the music - took a bit of playing with it but I got it and I love it! no more wires, no more phones or ipods for work outs! the battery is pretty good too and the charge is FAST!
I bought this Versa for my wife, and she loves it. But she wore it when she went to the water park, and a week later (not sure why it took it that long) it just went dead. First it was charging, and the screen became unresponsive. That was followed by a complete shutdown and could not be turned on. Thankfully the awesome customer support from ran us through the necessary troubleshooting and will send her a replacement after making sure it was indeed dead.After this incident, my wife has read quite a few forums where Versa users reported damage and malfunctions after wearing the tracker in pools, beaches, etc., despite being rated at 50 meters water resistant.So make sure to not take it for a dip and you'll love everything else about it.
I purchased the versa after using a mio alpha2 for years. I compared the two heart rate monitors and the readings were quite similar. The alpha2 has a feature that shows the heart rate zone with 5 different lights on the side of the watch, other than that, the versa has answered all my requirements. Extremely user friendly, easy setup and every feature has worked well. I used the cycling feature to monitor a spinning workout and was very impressed with the data, how easy the screen was to read and access. I chose a watch face that features time, date, current heart rate and other tracked data and it is all easy to read on a very bright screen. The app is easy to navigate and gives me the information I need, especially the amount of time in the different heart zones, average heart rate, peak heart rate and the most time in a target heart zone. This is very important for my workouts and is a great motivator. I have owned several heart monitors over the years, the versa is by far the best I've owned and has surpassed my expectations.
I really like this smartwatch. This was an upgrade from the ChargeHR.Sleep tracking is probably it's best function for me. Seems pretty accurate and gives you interesting insite to whats going on at night under the sheets. Im talking about sleep here people... relax and focus.Rumor has it that they're going to be able to detect things like sleep apnea which will be cool because I'm tired of getting elbowed by that girl who sleeps on the couch now.Has all the other features of the other products. Alerts you when you should be moving. Syncs with your phone to get notifications and allows you to reply to texts with customizable responses. Vibrates more than a jackhammer if I break my step goal for the day which adds to the enjoyment of not being lazy.I've smacked this thing on all sorts of stuff. Dropped it. Kicked it by accident once. Still works and nothing feels loose. Battery lasts about 5 days, two or three of which I cant wear it because my job thinks it's a "security risk." That'll teach us to care about our health.Very happy with it. I recommend.
Been wearing for a couple years now when the versa came out I bought it and love it. The fit is excellent, sits low on the wrist and wears nice. Love all the features especially being able to change clock screens. Waterproof feature is nice!
So far so good. Only had for 3 days. Simple to set up.
My husband purchased this for me for Mother's Day. However, I didn't know it was available in silver aluminum to match the cool silver bangle band I purchased separately until I had the black Versa. So back it went to only to have to wait the the silver Versa to be back in stock because they were back ordered until the 11th, then the 13th, the 15th, oh you get the idea. I can only assume they were back ordered so they could fix those bugs a lot of the early reviews on here talk about. Well, I've had mine almost a full day so I've had a chance to check a few things out.1. Accuracy. Initial reports show this being wildly inaccurate in regards of heart rate, steps, flights of stairs, sleep, etc.I looked at heart rate first and while I've always thought my resting heart rate was around 60 this device is showing a resting heartrate of 98. Well I'm sick right now and hopped up on tons of Sudafed and cough meds so rather than assume its wrong I manually took my heartrate radially and it was actually closer to 105. So the heart rate feature is pretty accurate.Next, I looked at steps. A lot of people complained that it counted steps as they drove, moved their hands a lot, or even when they were typing. I did all of those things and really didn't experience any more than the standard margin of error you normally see with pedometers in general. The 20-50 extra steps that were logged that weren't really steps are negligible to me when I'm logging thousands of steps per day.Flights of stairs. Versa reports that it counts an elevation of about 10 feet as a set of stairs. So if you're going up or down stairs that are way more or way less than 10 feet then it won't seem accurate. However, I only went up one flight of stairs when I came up to bed and my arms were packed full. It still managed to be able to tell that I went up just 1 flight of stairs. And despite all the moving I did all day those were the only stairs I climbed and the only stairs it logged. So that appears to be working okay.As for driving in a car, I drove all over the place to day and my step counter didn't really change except for when I swung my arms too much dancing in my seat to Justin Timberlake.Lastly sleep. I'm afraid I can't help you there unless I fall asleep at work. I can't stand having anythjng on my wrists or hands while I sleep, not even my wedding ring, so I can't really track my sleep. Sorry.2. Those things addressed, its time to talk about form and functionality.Form: 0HATE the bands it comes with and not because of the pins. The bands are too bulky and masculine for women to wear everyday. I put mine on and I didn't feel feminine at all. But like I said, I got the silver Versa so it would match this awesome bangle band I purchased separately. I've had several people compliment me just today who are shocked that its a . I am concerned about the face scratching or cracking so I may purchase one of those gorilla guards for it.3. Functionality: the setup wasn't as smooth as it was when I had that first black one I sent back. The required 3 part update kept failing and I had to switch from wifi to bluetooth. It failed a few more times on bluetooth but fortunately picked right up where it left off every time, even when i restarted my phone to see if that would help. (It didn't.) Finally after about an hour it was good ti go. However, the app was very slow and had a hard time pushing the clock faces and apps I chose to the watch. I kept getting error messages. I also wasn't too happy with the selection of apps. The driving one looked cool but the fine print said it was a free trial of a paid app. I would have liked too see more exercise or yoga apps or even just more games. Gotta love games.4. Lastly, the buttons and swiping around through screens has been a little hard to get used to. They're a tiny bit confusing but they don't seem too hard to eventually memorize the layout. Overall, I like it. I'll edit my review if things change.
Great buy! Love this Versa! Went from a Charge2 to the Versa after saving a drowning child fried my charge. I figured never a bad thing to go waterproof. The only con is the Bluetooth transmitter. It works fine playing music while working outside or walking, but when I run, I have to just use my phone because it can't keep up with the fast motion of my wrist. Not that big of an issue to subtract a star, because everything else makes this way worth the buy!!
I use this smart watch every day. The battery life is amazing! I previously have tried the Apple Watch 1&2, as well as the Motorola. None of them had a good enough price to justify having to charge it every other day. I charge my Versa every week or so? Not even sure. It's at least 5 days between charges. I wish there were quick text responses for iOS, but it's certainly not a deal breaker.
I love my Versa! My only negative is that I can't get iTunes with it, but that's more to do with my WiFi than with the watch. I do the walk/run training and this watches has an interval timing app which is a huge factor for me.
I have used the free version of LoseIt! for years (since 2012). I finally decided I wanted something more tailored to my personal fitness goals that had the capability to track things like my overall fitness, heart rate, and steps. I researched several options and while this was on the higher side for price range, it got decent reviews in tech magazines and other online articles. So I bit the bullet. I love that I can wear it in the shower and not have to disrupt my daily stats (except while charging). When I first got the watch, the battery only lasted 3 days, but I'm assuming that's because I had to set it up and I was playing with it a lot. Now, I just typically set the timer for my workouts and use the alarm to get me up in the morning. For all other stuff, I use the app on my phone. My ONLY complaint is that I really, really wish you could stream music from it. There should be the ability to download the app and listen to your music that way. As it stands now, I have no music on it because I have to download something on my computer and then try to get my music transferred. The problem is, all of my music is on my phone! Not my computer, so that's not helpful and I just haven't taken the time to figure it out yet. I typically have my phone everywhere I go, so I'm not all that upset, but I am disappointed since I bought Beats earbuds to sync with it and well, that's a no-go right now.Anyway, this thing so far does exactly what I bought it for. It tracks my food, my water, my steps, heart rate, etc. and I have had no issues with syncing to my phone. I'm glad I bought it.
Love the versa. I've had a Charge and Blaze. Both lacked the smart watch aspect. Went to Apple Watch and hated the spinning tool as well as the bulkiness of it. It made me sweat so badly underneath. I found myself taking it off often.This versa is so light and with the nylon band you don't even notice your wearing it most times.I did buy the basic black and then upgrade to a nylon band I bought on (for $10) for comfort.No one can beat the app as far as activity. All the data in one place. Easy and organized. Plus I love the sleep data.My battery last 4 days and that's with all day syncing and activity.Only downside is you can't reply to text on it but overall I found I don't really need that feature very much anyways. Aka not having a life! ??
Received this product yesterday and I spent literally 10 freaking hours trying to connect it to my phone and the internet. It would connect for about a minute and then the status of it won't start looping from connected to not connected. When it finally connected it would start updating and then disconnect again. If I cant get it to work today I'm defiantly sending this frustrating piece of crap back. UPDATED REVIEW!!!!! I finally ended up getting this product to work. It took forever to figure it out but once I got it figured out this product was great. I don't use it as much as I should but it gets some time to get use to it.
I love it. Just cannot wait for it to support more women related health features. It will happen in May according to .
This watch is great. It tracks my steps and fitness goals very precisely, and I love using it with bluetooth headphones. It is so much lighter and less bulky than its competitor, the Apple Watch, and about $100 cheaper too! I love the band it comes with, and I love that you can change the band too! You can swim with it and be just fine!The one thing that I don't necessarily like is that there are no speakers. I presume it is to help with battery life, so I really don't mind.Speaking of battery life, it is great! says that this watch can last four days on a single charge, but I've gone for entire week without charging it.You also get text notifications to your watch from your phone- even with an iPhone!This watch is very helpful and I absolutely adore the coaching app that it comes with. I exercise every night now and I've lost several pounds.This watch is a great buy!
Great alternative to the Apple Watch (which is WAY too expensive) and it's also upgrade to my Charge 2. It seems more reliable than the Charge 2 for catching Heart Rate and pleased with this especially with the Black Friday discounts from the vendor that were available from ! I got my wife a Rose Gold one which was on back order at the website and I got myself a black Versa also! I just wish the batter lasted 7 days like the Charge 2. I'll play with the autowake and notification settings to prevent the screen from lighting up and buzzing all the time and maybe that will save some battery.
I switched from a Blaze 2 years ago to a Garmin Forerunner 235. Now that I'm not running anymore, I switched back to a . My husband bought me this as an early birthday present and it is amazing. s in general are the best activity tracker, in my humble opinion. They're fun, pretty, easy to navigate and very encouraging with the confetti and fire works as we reach our goals. I asked for the Lite version because I didn't care for all the other options the Versa had and this suits all of my needs. The screen is bright and battery life is longish at 3/4 days.The only thing I'll miss about my Garmin is the built in GPS but the pros far outweigh the one con.I wouldn't trade this particular for any other model or activity tracker. Buy one!
