The Design of Fitbit Versa 2 Is nothing unique But it’s clean and polished that is good enough. However, the watch is light and more comfortable to wear. After Wearing this watch the whole day, I have no trouble wearing it on the bed. You can also wear this watch while sleeping No Problem.
The Bezel is Smaller and Fitbit removes its name from the bottom bezel. It is about the same size (1.6 inches square) which means it should fit on most wrists. The Orignal Versa had three buttons, two on the left and one on the right side but Versa 2 has only one button on the left side. All other navigation is done with Versa 2’s touch screen.
There is another improvement is the Versa 2’s AMOLED touch screen. The display is not only slightly larger but the feature is always -on the option, that shows the time, date and battery life.
The screen is simply black and white in this mode. Wake the Versa 2 to get the full-color screen. I never had a problem with reading the display even in sunlight.

You can also set a timer to start Fitbit Exercise. You do not need amazon echo or any Alexa device. Does just one thing connect your amazon Alexa account to your Fitbit Versa 2 from the Fitbit app in order to use Alexa on Versa 2?
I like About the notification on the Versa 2 that they come with their own style depending on the app that’s sending them. So, you will see the green border for WhatsApp and blue for Facebook messenger. With this, you can also send quick replies like No, Yes, “I am busy”.
You can also add custom quick replies. On top of that, you can send a reply by talking with the Fitbit Versa 2. It will transcribe your words and send a message. This feature solves the problem of having no keyboard on the smartwatch.

The Versa 2 has improved capacity than the previous edition. The battery of Versa is able to last five days or longer depends on your usage. The Versa 2 always includes an always-on display to quickly glance at the time without waking up the screen.
If you do a ton of workout-tracking, those activities decrease your battery life. I tell you some steps to extend your battery life such that disabling the always-on feature, Off GPS If you are not Using, Low The brightness level.
The Fitbit app was very clean and simple to use. You can see your real-time activities through the Fitbit app. Fitbit app is fully customizable you can customize the app as you want. you can easily connect with hundreds of other Fitbit users and share your achievements and get been motivated.
