This is a product I have bought and played around with
The Fitbit Versa 2 is the sister watch to Versa 1 and Versa 3, I choice to go with this watch because the Fitbit brand has always been one that seems reliable, as I am a stay at home mom in college for PSW and just buying a watch for 300$ wasnt in the cards for me, so when an offer came up for paying 45$ for 5 months I couldn't turn it down.
Now being a mom of a Newborn and a 10 year old buts not always easy to get to my phone and hey what mom doesn't want to get back in to shape after having a baby. So I was looking around for a smart watch that would do the things I needed, but wouldn't break my bank.
So let's break this down, first the Design
*This watch is thin and light weight
*you can personalize the home screen to give it a little more you, with being able to add a new screen interface like Samsung theme, there are free ones and ones you pay for. There is also ones that will change your always on screen.
*easy to change bands with all different styles are great prices
*screen protectors at a good price and all different colors
*easy to read apps and clear display
*use to use charger, its ones with a little dock that the watch clips in to. But you can't have some screen protectors on when using it, thou that's not a big deal as there easy to remove and put back on.
Now the tech part of it
*app is easy to use and put your info in, it's easy to find what you need and looking for, the only thing that threw me was where the update was when it showed on the screen I didn't click it, the update however is in the help spot in the settings so now I know its easy to find
The apps are changeable on screen to what you use most, and even for women it has the Period tracker so if your trying to get pregnant also shows you fertility times.
This watch keeps track of your heart rate, your sleep, your steps, and more
You can also pair it with a smart scale that isn't a fitbit brand(make sure you check compatible first before buying third party) but it was all easy to set up and connect. And being a mom this watch makes Alarms right on my wrist, text messaging is great cause I can reply, open it to pop up on my phone, or just close it.
There is also a subscription you can pay for, right now it offered 90 days free for me, for get Premium access with workout videos and few other perks, but you don't have to have it to enjoy the other watch has to offer.
The battery life is actually really good for the fact I have the light on all the time(which you can put it in to sleep mode so your always on screen and notifications do not show durning a time at night) I stick it on the charger before I go to bed it takes maybe 30 mins to an hour to be fully charged and will last me from when I go to bed till I put it on the charger the next night, cause I use the alarms and clock durning night time feeds for my little one.
So what didn't I like, well over all for someone wanting a fitbit the price is a little up there for paying 300$ out right for, but if you can get a deal then it's one to have. I would have loved to have got the Versa 3 or Sense one but for the price it wasn't in my budget, I would also have liked to seen when you get a phone call you could are threw the phone, when you send a text you can use a the mic so I would have thought you could use the phone call but no it just opens the call on your phone, so maybe if you hook a Bluetooth ear piece it might work, will have to see.
Also one problem I have is I am Canadian and my bank won't link to the wallet , I even tried my capital one credit even thou its on the list and it didn't work. So anything on it, like clocks guess they won't get money from me.
Now I didnt try to water resistance part of it cause like any tech I don't like pushing it when it comes to watch and how much you pay for the watch.
Over all I would recommend this watch to anyone looking to keep track of losing weight, who is in the go and makes it hard to always keep a phone in hand, and wants a smart watch that is thin and light I have a small wrist and it sits nice on me.
So I hope this helped anyone looking in to this watch
