I recently reached 50K subscribers on my YouTube channel and in celebration and as a congratulations, my boyfriend Benji treated me to something I’d had my eye on for weeks. The FitBit Versa. I started the year with the cheapest, most basic Fitbit and it was great for what I needed. As time went on, it was apparent I was looking for something more advance, and that’s where the Versa ticked all the boxes. Here’s how I’ve got on!
Design & Comfort
I’d had so many compliments on my FitBit, mainly from people mistaking it for an Apple Watch! I’ve got the Peach / Rose Gold Aluminium and I absolutely love it. I was worried pink wouldn’t match everything, but it looks really lovely against my skin tone. The size of the face is perfect, and I like the rounded corners. It feels more girly to me than the Apple Watch, and is really comfortable. I wear it to sleep, in the shower, exercising, typing, editing and never notice it. The rubber is really easy to clean (and keep clean!) too.
– Exercise Tracker (particularly for Swimming)
– Relax (2 Minutes Breathing Session)
It comes with a really neat little charger that you slot the watch into, perfect for on my desk or by your bed. The battery lasts around 3-4 days for me. If I have it tracking exercises, I normally get around 3 days on average, which includes wearing at night. I’ve also noticed it charges really quickly too, I’ve normally back at 100% within an hour or two!
There are 15+ different exercise modes available, I’ve used Treadmill, Yoga and Swim the most. You can rely on SmartTrack to automatically pick up your exercise (it recognised when I was on an elliptical machine) or you can click start and stop. There’s also a ‘Coach’ mode with on-screen workouts which I haven’t used yet but is going to be so handy when I need some support in the gym.
I haven’t tried but you can change the strap. I’ve heard it’s not as simple as changing the Apple Watch, but it is possible! You can get different colours, textures and styles of straps these days too.
If you see the images below, you’ll notice I’ve changed to a more girly floral clock face since getting the watch. You can swap inside the app and it’s really easy to do so! It makes it interesting and feels like a new watch when you get a bit bored.
