With its new smartwatch, Fitbit is keeping women in mind.
The $200 Fitbit Versa, announced on Tuesday, is Fitbit’s second true smartwatch and the first geared toward a more mainstream audience — and smaller wrists.
Fitbit Versa looks a lot like an Apple Watch — although it’s a bit smaller — and is less fitness-focused than the watch Fitbit debuted last year, called Fitbit Ionic.
The new Fitbit Versa still has plenty of fitness tracking capabilities built in, including on-watch workouts, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, and personalized fitness tips. But the Versa watch can also answer texts, download apps, and store music. And it also has several new features specifically dedicated to women’s health.
Fitbit Versa is available for preorder starting Tuesday, and will go on sale in April. Here’s what it can do:
Fitbit Versa has a wider array of apps to start off with than the Fitbit Ionic. Here are some of the apps you can add to your watch:
– Hue Lights
– United Airlines
Fitbit Versa is intended to be a more well-rounded smartwatch, but it still has a fitness focus.
Fitbit Versa runs Fitbit’s new operating system, OS 2.0, which Fitbit says is more simplified and intuitive. Here’s what the watch can do when it comes to fitness:
– Daily and weekly fitness stats, along with historical data
– Tips, daily guidance, and motivational messages
– Reminders and challenges will get more personalized over time as the watch learns more about your habits
– Personalized workouts and automatic activity tracking
– 24/7 heart rate tracking
You’ll be able to buy the watch on Fitbit’s website and at stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Verizon, and Walmart.
