The Fitbit Versa 2 is now available and usually costs around $180. The Versa 2 isn't a huge upgrade compared to the original, but it's all good stuff that keeps this fitness-focused wearable ahead of the competition. I've been using it for the last two weeks and I have a lot of thoughts about what works and what doesn't.
The Fitbit Versa 2 health & fitness smartwatch lets you track your sleep and workouts, listen to music, talk with Amazon Alexa, and keep an eye on all the incoming notifications from your smartphone in the meantime.
The Fitbit Versa 2 health and fitness smartwatch features Alexa built-in so you can ask for news, check the weather, set alarms, and control smart home devices like the TP-Link smart plug that's included absolutely free with purchase!
I'm a massive fan of dumb smartwatches. For the uninitiated, a dumb smartwatch is a smartwatch that isn't trying to replace your phone or do more than what you'd realistically want a wrist-based display to do. Devices like the Apple Watch and Android Wear, while excellent in their own right, are trying way too hard to do way too much for a device that sits on your wrist.
