Fitbit Versa?

Anita672Anita672 Posts: 32Member Member Posts: 32Member Member
Hi all, I have been a Fitbit One user for years and I have been wanting an upgrade but there are so many negative comments online about the Versa. Any advice? I like the look of the Versa as I want to wear it to work and I want a calorie burn. Any advice or experience? Thx.

    Thanks, Sizco. There are just so many negative comments and this will be a big $ purchase for me. I’m glad to hear a positive comment!!

    Buy from Walmart or amazon I got mine for 169 instead of 199 here recently. If you don’t like it you can return it.

    i love mine but i realize it's kind of overkill in some ways. you track sleep and steps and you are really never taking it off. i got a weird rash on my wrist that was likely from it being wet from sweat or my constant hand washing and had to take it off. now i just wear it during the day. i think for me it is great but i really mostly interact with it through the app so i could have done any of the models that displays the steps. it has a great screen but i'd prefer to charge it less and just see steps.

    I’m looking at upgrading to the Versa from the charge 2! What I like is you can upload 300 songs to the watch so you don’t have to carry your phone with you while you are exercising! It also allows you to track your route!

    I've had mine since Christmas and love it. I don't track sleep, and mine has the cloth band. No troubles with rashes etc - and it's worked perfectly for the past five months. I love it.

    I recently bought the Versa Lite and a leather band from Amazon. I've happy enough with the way it looks once I replaced the band and I've been happy with the Versa Lite's capabilities. The tracking seems accurate enough.

    That being said, my Vera Lite's display stopped working yesterday. I got it on May 1st, so its been less than a month. I contacted support and they are sending me a replacement. I'm just hoping that I had a bad piece of hardware and that this won't set the precedent for future Fitbit quality.

    I had the same thing happen to mine, I have the Versa but not the lite version. After I had it for a week, the display quit on me. They are in the process of replacing it but I hope this isn't a bigger problem. Support was good though, they replaced it with no issues.

    Same. I had told support what was going on and what I had tried to do to fix it. They got everything sorted out within 10 minutes. I now have my new Versa Lite and it is working fine so far.

    I love mine! You can put different watch faces on which is fun. I just discovered one flaw though, taking the band off and on. It is NOT easy at all and there are lots of complaints online. After breaking a few nails I finally got it back on but what a pain!

    I've had mine for about 3 months now, and have had 0 issues with it. It has been a great investment for me.

    @stephtra49 I'm thinking of upgrading my Charge 2 to the Versa so I can add tracking for swimming, how are you finding it now you've had it a few months?
    Any other noticeable benefits?

    I just got the Lite version and I love it except for the fact that it is so sensitive on the step counter it’s saying I’m doing way more than I am. Kind of makes me question how accurate everything else is.
    Also, I’ve heard many people say they’ve had problems with the display after swimming with it and completely drying it like they say to.. anyone try swimming with it yet?

    My husband went for the Versa and I got a charge 3, we went swimming yesterday and his was spot on for length count but mine overstated by 3 - we only did 16 so it was a short swim. He hasn't mentioned any problems.
