Keep track with a wiser Versa

Money Glitz | Ivy Ong-Wood 17 Sep 2019

For a while, smartwatches with inbuilt fitness apps were stealing the market from the original fitness tracker, Fitbit.

But the US firm got smart and launched its own smartwatch - the Versa - last year.

Now, it has one-upped its own invention by adding Alexa voice activation.

The Versa 2 debuts an on-device microphone, along with a Spotify app that allows you to control your music and podcasts. With an Android phone, you can also use the microphone to reply to texts and notifications from your wrist.

Another innovative feature is the ability to track your sleep quality. Sleep Score gives you a better insight into your sleep quality, based on your heart rate, restlessness, time awake and sleep stages. Smart Wake uses machine learning to wake you at an optimal time in your sleep cycle so you feel more refreshed.

The Versa 2 also has a faster processor and a larger Amoled display. An optional always-on display mode, which boasts two-day battery life, allows you to check the time and see your stats during a workout without having to press any buttons.

Prices for the Versa 2 start from HK$1,798, and accessories range from HK$238 to HK$388.
