There are several exercise options that you can choose from Versa, a total of 19 of which can be loaded on Versa. Those based on the gym include exercise weights, exercise and a circuit, but differ only by name. All will monitor the duration and heart rate using the latter to evaluate calorie burning. The live screen follows three measurements simultaneously: two smaller numbers on top and bottom that are static (although you can easily change them before setting) and a larger middle scale, which is a editable list, you can scroll through by pushing or use the left Versa button. Thank god Fitbit included the latter. Anyone who has tried to control the touch screen when a clutter is ripe for the air will know that the big fat pressure button is a blessed relief.

There are also possibilities for cardio machines, such as treadmills, elliptical, staircase climbers and training wheels (these rotate in the application), but also the duration of a trace,heart rate,calories and,if necessary, the steps and therefore the distance. Absent due to its absence is a way for rowing machines, but, as far as I can see, there is no reason to simply use the general way of tracking the exercise.

Fitbit Versa has an interval mode that many competitors do not include. That is, it would not be open – this is one of the features that I use most. The Versa version is well done, although you need to set the duration of your work and rest and repeat in the app, then synchronize it. This is quick and easy, but it would be faster and easier if it could happen on the device itself. I also suggest that you set the vibration power of the device in the device, as it is no worse than resting work.

Versa is also preloaded with Fitbit Coach, a subscription application (an additional £ 30 per year) that can be worth spending. We tried one of the three free samples of body weight in the sample and this was a satisfactory circuit that showed each exercise on the screen before it led me through the time of work and rest. The offer of premiums seems promising, with a wide choice of physics courses, which can be clearly adapted to the staff, and lead and walk after a training session. We will get an overview when we have the opportunity to deal with it.

As far as I’m concerned, Versa is such a good follower of bracelets for fitness classes and work at a gym that you will find. It does not try to count the repetition, but I have not tried to follow yet another precise and useful use of this development function.

Use Fitbit Versa for driving

If you are a competitor, you are also a causal and buy a fitness tracker, it’s worth getting a GPS device so you can get accurate statistics about distance, height, and speed (and get Stray). The big change between Fitbit’s first smartphone, Ionic and Verso is a change from a built-in GPS-chip to GPS, where Versa needs to connect to his smartphone and gain a signal (just like Charge 2). While I prefer to work without a phone, you need to take care of people who hold the phone in one hand while running or carrying a holder for the handheld headset to see that most of them are happily downloaded together.

I thought this would help GPS make it faster for Versa to snap into the signal, but I realized that Versa lasted so long, if not longer than the ionic, to find the signal. It seems to help you if you have the Fitbit application open on your phone and synchronize it with the watch, but even then I spent longer than I was happy standing in place without touching my legs.

While Versa had a Run Detect function that automatically recognizes the path and triggers GPS, it did not work for me on two test strokes. It’s really embarrassing because it’s one of my favorite properties on the ions.

In addition to these frustrations, Versa has everything I want to track, and I bet that this will satisfy the great majority of competitors. The middle exercise screen can be adjusted with static upper and lower stats of elapsed time, duration, tempo, average tempo, heart rate (which is color coded so you can see in which area the heart rate is), calories consumed, steps, time day, or lap time, and you can choose which of these metrics will be displayed in the center of the screen. You can also set a screen that is always turned on (although this will discharge the battery faster).


The statistics are all nicely displayed in the application, including the map of your route, the breakdown and the time spent in different heart rate areas. It does not contain cadence information – such as Samsung, Garmin and others – but if cadence is really important for you, I imagine that you will be better served by dedicated runs. Most importantly, at least for me, to export smoothly and quickly to Storm.

Occasional intervals run, so I was happy to see the inclusion of GPS in the interval function. However, there is no static rate in this mode. Of course, I could go with a heartbeat for working periods, but speed is much easier and there is no reason for me to think why this would not be included. The fingers crossing this will be included in Fitbit’s third smart hour.

Use Fitbit Versa for cycling

Just like most GPS GPS cases, the Versa offer for cyclists is very similar to that of a race, minus the steps. It is used for occasional cyclists, especially drivers, but the drivers will want to look elsewhere, especially because Versa will not connect with things like power meters.

Versa includes the Fitbit auto-recognition feature. This will not trigger GPS, but will report activity, keep card at heart rate and contribute to your active minutes. I was surprised that Versa was trying to maintain Fitbite’s proper standards. Once, my 40-minute bike ride was recorded in a couple of hours, and the push of a baby carriage was also recorded as a bike ride (honestly, although my wrist was in a similar position to the holding of the rudder).

Use Fitbit Versa for swimming


Ion was the first Fitbit with a screen that was impermeable, but initially, it offered some bare bones, only the time of tracking and calories burning in the pool. The offer is greatly improved and Versa can count the lengths, measure your heart rate and recognize various types of drops – even my far from perfect ones.

It’s all good stuff, but maybe the biggest improvement is small. The length of the pool setting is from some pre-programmed options that can be adjusted to only 10 meters – very important if your favorite pool is small in the gym. My closest one, for example, is a random 13 meters, which can now be managed by Versa.

In my opinion, there is still a small way to go for a feature before it is topped up with the best waterproof trackers. The result of SWOLF, which shows your effectiveness, would be appropriate, for example, but Versa has a much improved set of features and people who want to stick to their local pool will welcome this addition.

Use Fitbit Versa as a heart rate monitor

The Versa Heart Rate Monitor opens numerous Fitbit’s best features, including sleep tracking, better calorie burning, heart rate and cardio (which is similar to VO2 max) – the last two are both good criteria for your overall fitness.


Especially useful is the cardio fitness score. Not only Fitbit sets you up on the spectrum, so you can see how you compare to other demographically similar athletes, so we recommend how much you will improve if you start doing things like regular implementation. I think this is a seriously designed and highly motivated service that has no other brand to track fitness.

Regarding the accuracy, I realized that Versa has the same problem for all Fitbits, and to a greater or lesser extent, all wristwatches are trying to follow the rapid changes (for example, when the intervals are running) and when you are working at the top. Because I think this is a tracker that is suitable for many levels of physical fitness, it’s no longer a problem, but if more accurate reading is important for you, otherwise, especially since Versa will not be linked to the heart rate band.


Use Fitbit Versa to listen to music

One of the great new features introduced by Versa is integration with Deezer, music flow and competitors Spotify. Each Versa has a three-month Deezer premium subscription (usually 10 pounds per month), which allows you to save your music on your watch and play without an Internet connection. And this is surprisingly easy to do. On a smart or desktop computer, you simply record a track, and the next time your Versa is connected to Wi-Fi, it syncs music every time. This is almost an ease of use by Apple.

As someone whose physical (including music files on a local hard disk) music collection has declined over the years, this has been some revelation. Verso comes in line with music streaming features Offers Samsung and Wear OS offer Spotify and Google Play services. Is there a difference between Deezer and Spotify? Probably, but not that I noticed.
