Fitbit Versa 2 vs Huawei Watch GT 2 vs Gamin Vivoactive 4: Which is Better?

DESIGN:The Versa 2 with the smallest case size is the most compact, yet has the widest display size that allows you see more at a glance, thanks to its rectangular shape. It also weighs a little less than the other two which no doubt makes it a more comfortable wear. Although the 10.7mm thick GT 2, is the slimmest which makes it the sleekest.

The Vivoactive 4 with tranflective LCD will be a lot easier to read outdoors compared to the other two. Although, the AMOLED display of the GT2 and Versa 2 offers a richer and more attractive display.

CONNECTIVITY:While the Versa 2 lacks inbuilt GPS, its present on both the GT2 and Vivoactive 4. This enables outdoor activity tracking which makes these two better choices if you’re into outdoor sports. Although, with the Versa 2 you can still enjoy GPS features, but it must be connected to your phone GPS which can be quite inconvenient while working out outdoors.

MEDIA:The GT 2 comes with microphone and loudspeaker which enables Bluetooth calling and allows you make and receive calls directly from the watch, and as well you can play media files anywhere. The Versa 2 has microphone which enables Alexa voice assistant that allow you carry out a number of functions simply with your voice.

ACTIVITY TRACKING:Just like most of the newly released smartwatches, each of these three is fully equipped to track your active live comprehensively. Each of these will track your complete sleep cycle, VO2 Max., continuous heart rate tracking and steps with preloaded sport modes to allow you choose your preferred sport modes.

The GT 2 has added swim-based heart rate tracking, recovery time that helps track your fitness level as well as training load and 10+ preloaded courses that guide you through your favorite sport modes, while the Versa 2 features onscreen workout coach (subscription based), menstrual cycle tracking for women, tracks floors climbed, blood oxygen with 15+ preloaded sport modes.

On the other hand, the Vivoactive 4 is quite a more comprehensive activity tracker with a lot more features such as; swim-based heart rate tracking, menstrual cycle tracking for women, blood oxygen tracking, floors climbed, hydration tracking that helps you stay hydrated, body energy monitor that monitors your fitness level, onscreen animated workout modes that coach you through your favorite modes helping you save on subscription, incidental fall detection that can help you get the needed assistance when a fall occurs, as well as custom and 20+ preloaded workout modes.

BATTERY LIFE: The GT 2 tested to last up to 14 days from a single charge has the longest battery life compared to the Versa 2 and Vivoactive 4 with about a week long battery life. In all, each of these three has got an impressive long battery life that allow you go longer on a single charge.

VERDICT:No doubt each of these three is a fantastic smartwatch, in fact some of the very best choices currently on the market, but the Huawei Watch GT 2 has it. It has the most sophisticated design, the longest battery life and more features.

On the flip side, I choose the Versa 2, it’s priced moderately, yet great features and remarkable design with a long battery life.
