Quick Replies make the Fitbit Versa a much better smartwatch

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

Two months after the Versa was first announced, Fitbit’s since rolled out a new feature for Android users called Quick Replies. Fitbit told us to expect Quick Replies, but what we weren’t told is that this update was also going to overhaul the way Fitbit smartwatches (including the Versa and Ionic) handle notifications.
