What the experts say
Techradar was impressed by the Fitbit Versa 2 and described it as a "near-perfect" upgrade to original Versa". It's lightweight design, always-on display and strong battery life make it an excellent choice. The major downside is the lack of GPS which means you will have to pair it to your phone in order to get the most accurate and complete data about your workouts. The lack of integration with Google Fit and Apple Health is also an annoying drawback. It's best viewed as a fitness tracker with some of the features of a smartwatch. The voice assistant is a bit difficult to use.
CNET liked the Fitbit Alexa 2 overall and saw ti as excellent value for money. However, they were similarly unimpressed by the lack of GPS which is a "deal-breaker" for runners. Despite being faster than the original, the Alexa connection still needs more work.
Expert Reviews loved the design and felt that the Versa 2 was a good all-rounder. The companion Fitbit app is also great. However, the lack of GPS is a drawback.

Argos’ same day delivery is amazing! Love the watch, it’s been great for keeping me motivated especially during this pandemic. The Fitbit app took a while to get used to and navigate but once you’re used to it it’s fab!

I’m impressed how this purchase has altered my lifestyle. After a recent visit to the doctors I found I needed to monitor my heart rate hence the purchase. However since then thanks mainly to this bit of kit I am exercising more often and within my capabilities on my own time scale and I must say I’m really feeling the benefit. I found the watch a little awkward to set up with my iPhone at first but after a bit of research soon had it sorted and wouldn’t swap it now.

I definitely recommend this watch. It looks very stylish and even better than Apple Watch. I had the older version of it but I prefer this as it has way more new options which they become very handy and I’m pleased with my purchase as it motivates me to exercise and walk around more.

The only problem is to use all features it makes you pay a subscription fee to the apps which I found disappointing as your paying so much for the item in the first place.

I would like to swap with one I can use as a phone. I don't mind paying more money for a Fitbit which acts as a phone to talk to please

I don't want it and will pay more to swap it with a one which acts as a phone that is able to make phone calls and not this one. I'm prepared to pay more money than keeping this gadget

I love my new Versa 2, I moved on from my charge 2 (which I did love, but wanted a waterproof fitbit) I was a bit disappointed that not many banks support fitbit pay feature, hoping this is something they will change soon *fingers crossed natwest* I chose the pink/rose gold and I get complimented on it often. It is comfortable to wear and I love how the sleep is now direct on the watch rather than just looking on the fitbit app. Definitely pleased I chose the versa 2. Highly recommend!

I have been debating if to purchase a Fitbit for months and wasn’t sure which one to get. Finally bit the bullet and purchased the Versa 2 and I’m so pleased with it. It’s easy to use, comfortable to wear and looks lovely. Would highly recommend.
