Analysis and handling of the versa 2 from Fitbit.

In presentation

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

The versa 2, the right one for healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.From this point of view, the versa 2 is a good choice.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this versa 2.
The watch’s PropriĆ©taire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the versa 2, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Fitbit offers an entry-level product.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 4 hours.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Is versa 2 a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right choice for downloading applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

The versa 2 – in a nutshell

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
