Following various leaks, it looks like the Fitbit Versa 2 may be released as soon as the end of this month. The wearable will be the 2nd generation in the Versa line and is rumoured to feature Alexa support.
Fitbit has already shipped several new devices in the last 12 months. This includes the Fitbit Versa Lite Edition, Fitbit Inspire HR, Fitbit Inspire and Fitbit Ace 2 and the Fitbit Versa 2 will be a welcome improvement on the first version.
Fitbit has designed the Versa 2 with one physical button on the left. We get the same square display, with slim bezels and aluminium casing. The back of the Versa 2 features the new PurePulse heart rate sensor.
Fitbit Versa 2 features
What we know so far is that Versa 2 will come with the following features
- 18+ exercise modes
- sleep tracking features
- 24/7 Heart Rate support
- water-resistance down to 50 meters
- Music playback and storage for 300+ songs
- Fitbit Pay.
- Battery life is around 4 days.
The most surprising new feature of the upcoming smartwatch, it will feature Alexa support. You will ask the watch for weather reports in your area, along with other voice commands. But because the Versa 2 does not feature a mobile connection, it’s not clear if it will work without a Wi-Fi connection.
Release date of the Versa 2
Based on information, it looks like the Versa 2 will be available 15th September. But it looks like the company will officially announce Versa 2 on August 25th, meaning we could see it at IFA 2019.
