Fitbtit Versa 2 vs Fossil Gen 5 vs Apple Watch 4: Which is Better?

Each of these three has got a remarkable design, although the Watch 4 has the most sophisticated design. Its compact, slimmer than the other two and has the highest display size that allow you to see more at a glance, while not forgetting the digital crown button with hepatic-feedback that offers a click-like feel as you scroll.

The Watch 4 is also more comprehensive than both the Gen 5 and Versa 2, its has more features, and there’s an LTE edition that allows you make and receive calls directly from this device independent of your phone. Although, the Gen 5 with mic and loudspeaker allows you to make and receive calls via Bluetooth calling.

On the hand, the Versa 2 has the longest battery life, its tested to last up to 6 days or more compared to the Gen 5 with about a day battery life and even longer than the Watch 4 with about 18hrs battery life which is quite abysmal. Although, the Gen 5 powered by the Snapdragon 3100 chip features battery saver modes that will see it last a little longer (about a 12hrs – 1 day).

VERDICT: No doubt, each of these three is a fantastic smartwatch, remarkable design, great features and comprehensive activity trackers, but the Apple Watch 4 with a more sophisticated design, loaded with more features and a more comprehensive fitness tracker wins.

On the flip side, I will go with the Versa 2, its cheaper, yet great quality and is compatible with both android and iOS devices unlike the Watch 4 that’s only compatible with iOS devices.
