Similar to previous rumours, the photograph of the box indicates the second-generation Versa will feature built-in Amazon Alexa support, allowing the wearer to set timers, control smart devices and more, all with their voice. This means that the Versa 2 is set to be the first Fitbit smartwatch to feature a microphone.
The box also mentions Fitbit Pay support, 24/7 heart-rate monitoring, local song storage capable of holding more than 300 songs and four-day battery life. Finally, the box also lists over 18 exercise modes included in the new version of the watch.
Fitbit is rumoured to have plans to launch the Versa 2 on August 25th followed by a September 15th release date.
I’ve been using the original Versa for the last few months and I’m really fond of the smartwatch. Its multi-day battery life is difficult to beat, and its fitness tracking seems surprisingly accurate.
If these rumours are accurate, I’m definitely on board with a Versa 2 dropping in the near future.
