Fitbit Versa and fitness: Everything you need to know

You can’t spell ‘versatile’ without Versa.

While the Fitbit Ionic is the flagship, the new Fitbit Versa is likely a better fit for the masses. At $ 200, it is a wearable that everyone should consider as a way to understand all of the details of your daily life while also motivating you to make healthy choices.

It lacks GPS, but still has a number of fitness features that will help you track your activity, understand the  [Read More…]

Best Fitbit Versa Watch Bands

Fitbit’s been struggling to make a truly stylish smartwatch since it debuted the awkward-looking Blaze in early 2016, but with the Versa, the company’s finally found its footing.

The Versa is easily Fitbit’s best smartwatch design yet, but if you buy the standard version, you’ll only get a basic silicone watch band to go with it. It’s perfectly comfortable and looks fine, but its boring aesthetic can quickly leave you longing for something more.

Whether you choose to  [Read More…]

Fitbit Versa and Android: Top 10 things you need to know

Fitbit’s got a winner on its hands.

I’m a big fan of 2017’s Fitbit Ionic, but as it turns out, a lot of people aren’t. Not pleased at all with the Ionic’s sales performance, Fitbit went back to the drawing board to create something that’d appeal to a larger audience. Five months later, we have the Fitbit Versa.

Where the Ionic is a smartwatch that’s really meant for sports and fitness enthusiasts, the Versa is supposed to be Fitbit’s  [Read More…]

Fitbit is adding menstrual cycle tracking for its female users

This could have a huge, positive impact on women’s health.

During Fitbit’s recent press event in New York City, the company talked extensively about the new products that it’ll be highlighting this coming spring. A lot of the focus was on its new Versa smartwatch and Ace fitness tracker, but Fitbit also took a good chunk of time to talk about new female health features it’s working on.

This spring, Fitbit will introduce menstrual cycle tracking for  [Read More…]

4 things the Garmin Vivoactive does better than the Fitbit Ionic

Choose your fitness tracker wisely, because it will probably last you a while.

Both Fitbit and Garmin have long had a presence in the consumer electronics market, with both companies focusing on fitness gear and GPS accessories. In 2018, that means both companies are producing fitness bands, with notifications and other smartwatch features present as well. Fitbit’s latest device is the Ionic, while Garmin’s current flagship is the Vivoactive 3.

I’ve been wearing the Vivoactive 3 for  [Read More…]

The Fitbit Ionic is (still) a better fitness tracker than smartwatch

If you’ve read Daniel Bader’s excellent Fitbit Ionic review from September you already know that the device boasts a bold (if polarizing) design, backed up by one of the best health-tracking platforms on the planet, but mated to a somewhat sub-par software build. After a couple weeks of my own spent with the Ionic, I can report that that set of attributes – and the $ 299 price point – has remained mostly unchanged since.

Motiv Ring Review: A Fitbit for your finger

When someone first dropped a Motiv Ring into my hand back at CES 2018, it was so small and light that I thought it was a show-floor dummy. It’s hard to believe there’s any technology inside, let alone an optical heart-rate sensor, a step-counting accelerometer, a Bluetooth radio and the lithium-ion battery that powers it all.

But the tech is real and so is the Ring, a titanium-clad annulus rated to 5ATM water resistance and available in  [Read More…]
