Fitbit Versa 4 Revealed| Brand New fitness and Health-Tracking SmartWatch

Fitbit announced the Fitbit Versa 4, a new fitness tracker that offers an attractive design and long battery life. The announcement was made in conjunction with releasing two other products: the Fitbit Inspire 3 and the Fitbit Sense 2. But what’s new about Fitbit’s latest watch? Here’s what you need to know.

Fitbit Versa 4 is the best smartwatch for anyone looking for a simple, well-square rounded smartwatch. It also has exceptional fitness capabilities and a stylish design. The Fitbit Versa 4 is much slimmer than its predecessor and focuses on fitness, offering more sports activity profiles than ever. As with many of Fitbit’s best trackers, it tracks calories, sleep and heart rate along with Active Zone Minutes. Fitbit is also incorporating Google Wallet and Google Maps into the Versa 4 and Sense 2 smartwatches, to enhance their existing capabilities.

Despite the new Google Assistant features and a slimmer design, the Versa 4 still retains many of the same features as the Fitbit Versa 3 which was released in 2020. Continue reading to learn more about the Watch’s release date, price, battery life, and design features.

Fitbit Versa 4: Price and Release Date

The Fitbit Versa 4 will be priced at £230, the same as the (now likely discounted) Versa 3 when it hit the market in September 2020. The was is less costly as compared to Fitbit Sense 2 which is priced around $299 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.

The Fitbit Versa 4 release date has not yet been announced, but the device is available for pre-order. It includes 6 months of Fitbit Premium, which gives users access to the more advanced fitness and sleep tracking features, as well as Fitbit’s Daily Readiness Score. After six months of Fitbit’s Premium service, which costs $9.99 per month or $80 per year, you’ll have a clearer understanding of whether the service is worth it for you. We break down the details here.

Fitbit Versa 4: Design

The Fitbit Versa 4 has some key differences from the Versa 3 to reportedly make the tracker more comfortable to wear 24/7. The Fitbit Versa 4 is the lightest and thinnest version of the Versa line, with a slimmed-down device and a new band attachment to help the tracker fit better on the wrist.

Like other Fitbits, this model comes with different options for straps. It comes with three different choices — graphite aluminum with a black strap, platinum aluminum with a blue strap and copper rose aluminum with a rosewater or a beet strap. The Fitbit Versa 4 is lighter and slimmer than previous versions of the watch. It also has a physical button instead of a haptic button on the left-hand side, making it easier to find and physically press during a workout, so you don’t miss a rep or delay pausing your watch at traffic lights with sweaty fingers.

The Versa 4 has a bunch of new on-wrist exercise modes to choose from, including HIIT, dance, and skiing/snowboarding. It also has built-in GPS so you can track your pace and distance without your smartphone.

The Fitbit Versa 4 includes most of the same sensors as its predecessor, the Versa 3. These include an accelerometer and altimeter, but it’s missing some of the more advanced monitoring capabilities of the higher-end models in the Fitbit Sense line. You won’t find an electrocardiogram (ECG) app, an electro dermal activity (EDA) sensor or a skin temperature sensor on this device. If you’re looking for a wearable that will track basic daily activities, this isn’t much to worry about; however, if you’re looking for more comprehensive health tracking capabilities, you may want to consider one of Fitbit’s higher-end models like the Fitbit Sense 2.

Fitbit Versa 4: Battery life 

Fitbit claims the Versa 4 will last more than six days on a single charge. We have yet to put this claim to the test. Fitbit also says the Versa 4 can be charged in 12 minutes for a full day’s worth of battery life.

Fitbit Versa 4: Outlook 

The Fitbit Versa 4 appears to be a streamlined version of the Fitbit Sense 2. For people who don’t mind too much about having all the bells and whistles, it’ll be a decent activity tracker that’ll help you keep track of your daily activities. That said, whether it’s worth the upgrade from the Fitbit Versa 3 remains to be seen. Stay tuned, as we’ll be putting all of Fitbit’s newest tech to the test soon.
