Fitbit Versa 2 vs Versa 3 Features Compared

  • DESIGN
  • The Versa 3 has a similar design to Versa 2 in terms of appearance as each of these two is compact and lightweight. Although, the Versa 3 is slightly more curved at the edges than Versa 2. The Versa 3 has a slightly larger display size than Versa 2 eventhough I didn’t notice any difference in display size while using these two.

    AMOLED still powers the display of Versa 3 just like Versa 2, so both have colorful and easy to read display, and touchscreen is supported on both smartwatches. However, while Versa 2 has a physical button, Versa 3 has a haptic button which is claimed to help improve the device resistance to water. I have a problem with the button, it’s oftentimes unresponsive unless pressed really hard.

    You can save up to 5 watch faces on both smartwatches and there are many more options to choose from in the Fitbit app watch face gallery.

    In terms of availability, while the Versa 2 comes in both standard and a special edition that comes with a woven band, Versa 3 is only available in a standard edition.

    Fitbit has also replaced the band of Versa 3 with an infinity band that’s easier to change unlike the pin-style used on other Fitbit smartwatches.

    The interface of Versa 3 is neater than that of Versa 2 in such a way that it’s easier to access information. Double pressing the haptic button of Versa 3 allows you to access 4 of your favorite apps which can be customized from the settings app. Fitbit also added a widget option that consists of weather, relax, food logging, core stats, and advanced stats widgets. This allows you to easily see your activity stats.

  • FITNESS AND HEALTH TRACKING
  • Just like Versa 2, Versa 3 is equipped to track your sleep, steps, heart rate, calories, manage stress, and more. Both smartwatches also feature 20 preset workout modes and can auto-track 6 of these which can be set from the Fitbit app.

    Versa 3 has inbuilt GPS which Versa 2 lacks, and this is the biggest addition as far as I’m concerned. With inbuilt GPS, you can track outdoor activities such as routes, locations, and real-time pace without carrying your phone along. Unlike Versa 2 that requires you to carry your phone along in other to track your routes and more.

    The heart rate sensor of Versa 3 has been improved according to Fitbit. It comes with a multi-path heart rate sensor with an improved algorithm that enables better heart rate tracking. When I compared the heart rate tracking of these two, the figures were just about the same with 1-3 figures slight discrepancies.

    There’s a device temperature sensor on Versa 3 which allows you to log your temperature with a thermometer, the Versa 3 will then monitor temperature changes. Fitbit premium is required to get skin temperature variations over time.

  • MEDIA AND CONNECTIVITY
  • Versa 2 and 3 come with 4GB storage capacity that allows you to store music in any of these two. However, it’s quite unfortunate that you can’t add your personal music to Versa 3 as we did with Versa 2. You can only control Spotify playlists on your phone, download Pandora stations (USA only) and download your Deezer playlist – all of which require a subscription.

    Versa 3 comes with a loudspeaker which I already consider pretty much useless. The loudspeaker on Versa 3 only allows you to answer calls on the watch which you’ll have to continue on your phone. Begs the question, what’s then the need for a loudspeaker that doesn’t allow you to play music aloud, answer calls directly on Watch or hear Alexa speak?

    Talking about Alexa, Versa 3 will have Google Assistant in the future.

  • BATTERY LIFE
  • Fitbit claims the Versa 3 can last 6 days or more, it isn’t far fetched when I tested it. I charged the Versa 3 to full, used it to track outdoor workouts for 30 minutes every day, and I got about 5 days of battery life. It would be longer if I didn’t use GPS. This is longer than Versa 2 which gave me about 5 days on average with mixed usage, 30 minutes of Fitbit Coach every day, wore it to sleep every day, and switched off the always-on display.

    The Versa 3 has a new style of the charger, a magnetic charger instead of the charging dock of Versa 3 which is easier to fix. The Versa 3 also has fast charging, it took me less than an hour to fully charge the Versa 3 compared to Versa 2 that took 1 hour+

    Which Should You Buy?

    If you need inbuilt GPS to conveniently track your outdoor workout activities, then get Versa 3. Otherwise, save your money and get Versa 2.

    Should You Upgrade?

    Again, if you really need a built-in GPS, then it’s worthwhile to upgrade to Versa 3. Otherwise, the Versa 3 doesn’t offer much that’s worth upgrading.

    VERDICT: The Versa 3 is a fine smartwatch that’s lightweight and compact with inbuilt GPS, slightly longer battery life, and fast charging, but the limited loudspeaker and music storage feature is very disappointing.

    On the other, Versa 2 remains one of my favorite smartwatches, but however, lacks inbuilt GPS which every fitness-focused smartwatch should have.

Fitbit Versa 2 Review – A Comprehensive Review After 3 Months Use

Fitbit Versa 2 released last year and costs $180 with Fitbit Versa 3 as its successor is available in 5 colors; black/carbon, stone/mist grey, petal/copper-rose, bordeaux/copper-rose, and mist grey. Versa 2 looks more like an Apple Watch and it has outsmarted its predecessor, the original Versa. There are some poor features in the original Versa which Fitbit has done well to correct in Versa 2. Though it might look like a smartwatch, it’s an excellent fitness and sleep-tracker, not a complete smartwatch. If you seek a complete smartwatch go for an Apple Watch or Samsung smartwatches. For outdoor activities, the Versa 2 fails because it will need to be connected to your phone GPS as it lacks an inbuilt GPS. This is disappointing for its price of which a low-profile Huawei Band 4 Pro device has. This Fitbit Versa 2 comprehensive review takes a deep dive into what you can expect from this smartwatch and if it’s worth buying in 2020 with Versa 3 already available.

Fitbit Versa 2 Review

DESIGN

  1. Very Lightweight and Sturdy Design
  2. Fitbit Versa 2 looks a lot similar to the original Versa, though Fitbit has added some more features. It has a square face with smooth rounded corners and one physical button, unlike its predecessor that has three buttons – two on the left and one on the right. There’s just one button on the left side of the Versa 2 which serves as both the ‘select’ and the ‘back’. A shortcut can also be assigned to the side button. It’s an excellent fitness tracker with its decent look, lightweight design, and is comfortable enough to wear all day and night.

    The bands are interchangeable, you can change the bands with classic leather, metal, or any other strap of your choice. The versa 2 has a quick-release pin, easy to pull out but getting the pin to click into place can be quite frustrating.

  3. Display
  4. Fitbit Versa 2 has a touchscreen AMOLED display of about 1.4 inches and a dimension of 300 × 300px, making the black colors a lot darker. It is bright and easy to read no matter the light conditions. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which offers protection and durability. It also has an always-on display, but this might be a little disappointing because it affects battery life.

    Fitbit Versa 2 has an always-on display that can show exercise stats at a glance. But note that this can also affect the battery performance.

  5. Lots of Watch Faces

  6. The Fitbit app allows you to access a variety of clock faces, so you can customize the look of the Versa 2. Though some are premium watch faces which you’re allowed to use for about 2 hours in most cases. To install a watch face, log in to the Fitbit app, tap on clock faces and then on all clocks to manage and as well select your desired watch faces. You can only store upto 5 watch faces at a time on the Versa 2.

  7. Waterproof Rating

Versa 2 comes with a waterproof case that is water-resistant up to 50 meters, with this you can wear the versa 2 to shower, pool, and beyond without having to worry about it getting damaged by water.

HEALTH AND FITNESS TRACKING

Fitbit Versa 2 is a fullfledged fitness tracker that can track your exercises, heart rate, and sleep. It tracks all-day activities like your exercises, steps, distance, calories burned, floor climbed, heart rate, sleep, active minutes, hourly activities, and stationary time.

It automatically records any selected exercises like running, skipping, swimming, walking, and more, you can see stats in the Fitbit app and also get post-workout summaries. You can also see your real-time pace and distance by connecting to your phone GPS, then get a map of your routes in the Fitbit app.

  • Sleep Tracking
  • Another feature of the Versa 2 is in-depth sleep tracking. When I wore my versa 2 to bed, I liked how it tracked my time spent in light, deep, awake, and REM sleep stages. This feature is quite amazing as it helps you understand your sleep quality each night. And because Versa 2 is lightweight, I find it very comfortable to wear to bed with no stress at all. The Fitbit app also shows my sleep score which gives me a quick report of how well I slept at a glance.

  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • At the back of the Versa 2, is the heart rate monitor. It tracks your heart rate 24/7 and it shows my heart rate zones. It also shows a trend of my heart rate over time which I think can be a good idea to share with your doctor if the need arises.

  • Swim Tracking
  • With its swim-proof case that is water-resistant up to 50 meters, Fitbit versa 2 is swim-proof and it can also track your pool workout.

  • Menstrual Health
  • For women, you can use your Versa 2 with Fitbit app to log your period cycle, record symptoms, and fertile window.

  • Exercises


The Fitbit app has 20 exercises and you can only store 7 exercises in the shortcut list on your smartwatch. Tap on any exercises from the shortcut list on your smartwatch to start, while the Versa 2 can auto-track up to 6 exercises.

MEDIA

  • Music Experience
  • You can use the music desktop app to transfer music to the Versa 2, but this requires an available WiFi network to transfer music. You can also control your Spotify app and add a Deezer playlist with your subscription and play songs on your Versa 2. You can also download Pandora stations to the Versa 2. To listen to music, you’ll have to connect a Bluetooth headphone which can be done from the settings app>>audio devices.

  • Microphone

Another feature of the Versa 2 is the microphone which you can now use for voice replies with Android phones and to give Alexa commands.

NOTIFICATIONS

Another fine feature of Versa 2 is that you can see calls, messages, text, calendar notifications from your smartphone on Versa 2, that’s if the connected smartphone is nearby. But only Android users can reply to notifications using preset replies and emojis, you can also respond to messages with your voice. All thanks to its microphone which you can use for voice replies. Although you can’t answers calls with the versa 2.

MISC

  • Sleep Mode
  • The Versa 2 has a sleep mode that disables notifications from buzzing or display from lightening up and keeps the screen off while you are asleep.

  • Do Not Disturb Mode
  • There’s also the do not disturb mode which is a lot similar to sleep mode. When activated, it switches of notifications. Do not disturb can be activated simply by swiping down and accessing the quick panel settings.

  • Find Phone
  • You can use the built-in find my phone app to locate a misplaced phone. Just tap on the find phone app and your phone will continuously ring and vibrate until you discover its location.

  • Alexa
  • Fitbit Versa 2 has an Amazon Alexa app, you can use the Alexa built in-app to get quick news and information, check the weather, and more using the sound of your voice. By default, Alexa is assigned to the side button which can be accessed by long-pressing the side button, Alexa will pop up and will start listening to your voice queries. Alexa does a little thinking and connects to available wifi and provides the answers you seek.

  • Fitbit Pay

The versa 2 has an inbuilt wallet app that allows you to pay from your wrist without your wallet or your card. Though you’ll have to set it up. And Fitbit pay is not available in every country.

BATTERY LIFE

Fitbit Versa 2 can last up to 5 days+ though it varies, and depends on your settings. When you set it to always-on display it affects the battery performance and you will have to charge your Versa 2 more often.

Pros

  • Long lasting battery Life.
  • Comfortable to wear, it is lightweight.
  • Swim-proof.
  • A decent health and fitness tracker..

Cons

  • Lacks GPS meaning you have to take your phone for outdoor workout which is quite unfortunate.
  • Changing of strap; despite the quick- release pin it is painful to insert a new strap .

Which is Better?

The Cellular model of Watch 6 is a more comprehensive smartwatch than the GPS model, it has more features and is available in more materials. So you decide if the incidental fall detection, international emergency calling, family setup features the worth extra bulk to you. I will highly recommend the Cellular model for seniors, it can serve as a very helpful tool to help you get help real quick when needed, and I will also recommend it for family members that want more ways to stay in touch with family members like monitoring the location of your little ones with the new Find my phone feature.

On the other hand, the GPS model is a very outstanding smartwatch it has all the features present in the Cellular models except for the few features that require cellular connections.

Which is Size is Right For You?

Both sizes of the Watch 6 offer the same features except for the differences in dimension. Even though the 44mm is bigger than the 40mm, both smartwatches are still compact. The right choice for you depends on your wrist size which will be easier if you have been wearing a watch before now. I would recommend the smaller 40mm for women and individuals with thin wrist while the 44mm will make a better fit for individuals with fat wrist and men.

Which is Better?

All the three smartwatches will track all the basics like your steps, heart rate, calories, and distance. However, Both Bip and Bip S have inbuilt GPS which Bip U lacks. You’ll need to carry your phone along if you intend to track outdoor activities with the Bip U. The Bip and Bip S also have longer battery life than Bip U, thanks to the reflective LCD display.

On the other hand, the Bip U has more preset sport modes, 60 compared to 4 and 10 of Bip and Bip S respectively. It also features stress management and menstrual cycle tracking. And the larger 1.43 inches TFT colored LCD display with a higher resolution is richer and more colorful than the reflective LCD on Bip and Bip S.

VERDICT: Amazfit Bip S is my preferred choice, I think its a more comprehensive smartwatch with inbuilt GPS and long battery life. While the Bip U looks very interesting, but without inbuilt GPS it defeats the purpose of a true fitness tracker. However, the Amazfit Bip U Pro which is yet to be announced will have an inbuilt GPS.

Differences

Each of the three Ticwatch smartwatches has the same appearances built with the same polyamide materials, same AMOLED/FSTN display that elongate battery life from 2-30 days. Each of these three will also track your steps, sleep, calories, heart rate, and there is an inbuilt GPS that enables tracking for outdoor activities. Each of these three has both a microphone and loudspeaker that enable you to make and receive calls from the watch via a connected phone Bluetooth.

The differences though as you can see from the table above is that Ticwatch Pro 3 is powered by Qualcomm’s new 4100 chip that boasts a faster processor, GPU, and longer battery life. As a result, Pro 3 has a slightly longer battery life than other Ticwatch Pro smartwatches, and you can get even longer battery life with custom battery saver mode. Ticwatch Pro 3 has a bigger 8GB storage capacity that lets you store more tracks on the watch. It features blood oxygen tracking that allows you to see how much oxygen your blood carries, and there is the breathing and hearing app

In summary, Ticwatch Pro 3 may have the same appearance as Pro 2020 and Pro, it’s a more advanced smartwatch with more features, better performance, and longer battery life.

While Ticwatch Pro 2020 with a 1GB RAM paired 2100 chip offers a nice performance, it’s a cheaper alternative.

What’s New?

The GTS 2 comes with a loudspeaker and microphone that enables it to make and recieve calls directly from the watch with a connected phone Bluetooth, this isn’t possible with the GTS. The GTS 2 also welcomes SpO2 blood oxygen that tracks you blood oxygen levels to determine how well your blood utilizes oxygen. PAI is also available on GTS 2, this feature gives you a personalized health score by calculating your heart rate and other data. Menstual cycle tracking app has also been added, this comes handy for women to track their period cycle.

However, even though the GTS 2 has a higher battery capacity, it lags behind in terms of battery life, it has a shorter battery life than GTS. While the GTS can go up to 2 weeks, it’s about a week with GTS 2.

Basically, the GTS 2 is a better smartwatch than its predecessor. You can learn more about what’s new on GTS 2 in the video below.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 vs Ticwatch Pro 3 – Best Android Smartwatch Comparison

Fitbit Versa 2 vs 3 compared

Featured in today’s comparison are two outstanding smartwatches, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 vs Ticwatch Pro 3 – Which is the best for Android users? Is a question I’ll try to do justice to. I have only used Galaxy Watch 3 which I think is a really cool smartwatch even though the $429 price tag is quite bogus. The Ticwatch Pro 3, on the other hand, is cheaper and also a remarkable timepiece, it has the same appearance as its predecessor, but houses the Snapdragon 4100 chip which is on the same 12nm process just like Exynos 9110 powering Galaxy Watch 3. So in terms of performance, I can say each of these leaves up to expectations. Compare the differences to find out which is right for you.

Which is Better?

Honestly, I can’t outrightly say which is a better smartwatch between these two because these are some of the best on the market, but going head-to-head in different aspects we may be able to come to a winner.

  • DESIGN
  • I must say that the design of each of these two is outstanding in any aspect you want to look at it. Galaxy Watch 3 has improved in size from its predecessor, and the Ticwatch Pro 3 is also not so bulky. Both smartwatches are certified MIL-STD-810G which means any of these two is very durable.

    Navigation is also awesome on both smartwatches, but the physical rotating bezel on Galaxy Watch 3 brings more easiness in accessing the device. You also get lots of watch faces to customize the look of any of these two. So in terms of design, I will say each of these two has an outstanding design.

  • Media and Storage
  • Talking about storage, both smartwatches offer 1GB RAM of memory and 8GB storage capacity. Both smartwatches also have a microphone and a loudspeaker that enable you to make and receive calls directly from the watch via Bluetooth calling.

    There is a cellular model of the Galaxy Watch 3 that can make and receive calls independent of a smartphone, but this comparison is between the Bluetooth model of Galaxy Watch 3 and Ticwatch Pro 3. So as far as storage is concerned, it’s a square between these two.

  • Fitness Tracking
  • I think this is where the Galaxy Watch 3 gets the upper hand over Ticwatch Pro 3. It features ECG tracking, incidental fall detection, blood pressure monitoring, and has more preset workout modes than Ticwatch Pro 3.

    Although Ticwatch Pro 3 is still a decent fitness smartwatch with Spo2 blood oxygen tracking, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, steps counting, with inbuilt GPS that enables tracking for outdoor activities such as routes, pace, and locations which are all present in Galaxy Watch 3.

    So in terms of fitness tracking, Galaxy Watch 3 is clearly a more comprehensive fitness tracker.

  • Tizen OS vs Wear OS
  • Google has been doing a lot of recent to bring the Wear OS to per with other platforms like Tizen OS and WatchOS, but in terms features and UI, Tizen OS still holds sway as a better and more refined platform than Wear OS. I can install and uninstall apps on Galaxy Watch 3, and there are a lot more things I can do on the watch which I doubt is possible with Wear OS.

  • Battery Life

Both Galaxy Watch 3 and Ticwatch Pro 3 will let you go beyond one day from a single charge. Both smartwatches also feature multiple battery saver modes that extend battery life significantly. I got an average of 2-3 days with my Galaxy Watch 3 on mixed usage which is about the same with Ticwatch Pro 3 as stated in a review.

VERDICT:Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is the winner, it’s a more comprehensive fitness tracker and has a more sophisticated design. On the other hand, Ticwatch Pro 3 is no doubt the best Wear OS smartwatch, it’s cheaper and loaded with lots of features.
