Fitbit's mass appeal smartwatch is here

Fitbit Versa first look: A step in the right direction?

It also chose to go with what it calls a "squircle" design - yes, really- softening the hard edges of a square with rounded corners to make it feel more inviting.

A special edition of the watch also comes with woven material straps and includes a plastic strap in the box that you can switch to when you want to go out exercising. Plus, Fitbit is partnering with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to fund emerging label PH5, which will offer knitware bands and accessories for Versa. The screen itself is considerably improved, sharing similar specifications to the Fitbit Ionic. It will come with both a small and large standard wristband, but leather, metal, and mesh alternatives can also be purchased starting at $49.95.

While the heart rate sensors are identical to the Ionic, you don't get built-in Global Positioning System with the Versa, so you'll need to have it paired to your phone if you do want to track your outdoor workouts. Like the Ionic, it features 24/7 heart rate tracking, NFC payments, sleep tracking and on-device music. The Versa doesn't allow you to download songs from Apple Music or Spotify, but it does have enough internal storage to store mp3 files (so you can upload songs directly from an iTunes library, for example, and save them to the smartwatch).

When it comes to Fitbit Pay, the company's wearable payment service, the situation is a little. odd.

And he's matured into kind of picking his spots, he's still a hard guy to play against, physically very, very strong. By now, Ovechkin's teammates are not surprised by his success, let alone what he can do game in and game out.

We'll get the Fitbit Versa in for a full review, so be sure to check back once we've put it through its paces. Although Fitbit made its name by manufacturing fitness trackers, the company has been pushing towards smartwatches in an attempt to grow its appeal and gain market share. Fitbit promises at least 4 days of battery life for what it says is "the lightest metal smartwatch in the US market".

Fitbit will also introduce new competitions in the Fitbit app that allow family members to compete against each other to achieve certain step goals. They'll also be able to view cycle predictions, as well as gain insights about menstrual cycles, ovulation, and fertility.

On the surface, you may think this is a repackaged Fitbit Alta HR - and you'd be correct. "But we're also going to help people manage more serious health conditions". That's the end of the social interactions, though - kids won't have access to the greater Fitbit community.

All of the normal step tracking is included here, and it's also suitable for use in the pool thanks to a waterproof design.

However, the teaser did reveal a social media campaign where Warner Bros is asking all Potterheads to get their #WandsReady. The second installment in the " Harry Potter " prequel series heads somewhere old and somewhere new.

For instance, it could recommend more sleep in the coming week because a bad period is on the way, or suggest easier ways to exercise if you're feeling too exhausted.

Fitbit unveiled its second smartwatch – the Versa. This guides you on how to improve your sleep levels using Fitbit's Sleep Stages tracking, which breaks down your night's sleep into easy to consume stats. Essentially, Fitbit has replicated the smartphone app's dashboard on your wrist.

Like the Ionic, it has a pretty thick bezel, but it's bright and clear, and the company seems to have smoothed out Fitbit OS since we last tested it.

You can pre-order the Fitbit Versa from today around the world, but it won't be on shop shelves (virtual or physical) until some point in April.
