Fitbit Versa 3 Review

Fitbit Versa 3 Review

The Fitbit Versa 3 is a strong candidate for the title of a best fitness wearablehe Versa 3 functions in a manner consistent with its previous model.It includes a built-in GPS, a larger 1.58-inch AMOLED display (the same as the Sense), and an SpO2 sensor.The Fitbit Premium barrier conceals a wealth of important information, and the redesign of the side button has made it difficult to use. The Fitbit Versa 3 features a bigger screen, GPS, a SpO2 sensor, and Active Zone Minute’s compatibility. The heart rate monitor is slightly more accurate than the Versa 2, but without a chest strap to compare it against, it’s difficult to say how accurate it is. On a dim screen setting, battery life is roughly six days, but it lowers to half that if the display is on all the time.

Design and Display:

Has a bigger 40mm AMOLED display with a 336 × 336-pixel resolution. I tested the watch for almost a month and found the screen to be very straightforward to navigate through menus and apps. The lack of a real button on the left side, though, was our major gripe. Fitbit recommends not wearing the watch in a hot tub or sauna because it is water-resistant to 50m/164ft and can survive a dip in saltwater. Instead of the previous box-style charger, there’s a magnetic dock that swiftly recharges the battery.

Smartwatch Features:

The Versa 3 is a smartwatch that functions in the same manner as its predecessor. Compared to something like an Apple Watch, it still provides a simplified, no-frills experience. Because some apps are geo-specific to the United States, the United Kingdom, or other locations, the apps available to you will differ depending on where you are. 

Alexa, a virtual assistant from Amazon, is also on board to answer queries and handle your smart home gadgets. You should be able to take calls with the built-in mic and speaker, though we were unable to test this capability at the time of writing. It’s still not possible to listen to Spotify offline, which is a huge letdown. The Versa 3 allows Android users to respond to text messages with a selection of pre-programmed messages, while iPhone users do not have this option.


It has a new button that may be programmed to perform a variety of tasks. Swiping left brings up your apps, and swipe right to get to settings and modes easily. EDA Scan, Pandora, Starbucks, and Strava are among the other built-in apps.

Fitness and health tracking:

Advanced metrics on breathing rate, oxygen saturation, and heart rate variability are available to Fitbit Premium subscribers. Fitbit’s flagship fitness tracker, the Versa 3, is the latest edition, and it’s a significant upgrade over the Versa 2. It features built-in GPS, so all outside activities can be tracked in real-time, with graphic representations of pace, heart rate, and calories burned. While you won’t be notified if your heart rate spikes, you will have a record of it if you’re regularly monitoring yourself.

Sleep tracking:

The Versa 3 is a smartwatch with built-in sleep tracking that provides a daily Sleep Score ranging from zero to one hundred. The Fitbit app’s Sleep section keeps track of how much sleep you get each night. You’ll want to use sleep mode at night, which dims the screen and mutes incoming calls and texts. You can set a silent alarm to wake you up with a light vibration on your wrist if you sleep with someone else. It is not yet available, but it will be free to all Versa users in the coming months.


  • Stunning exhibition 
  • Satellite built-in 
  • Light and pleasant to wear


  • Poorly Designed Side Button
  • To access advanced features, you’ll need a Fitbit Premium subscription. 
  • There isn’t any offline Streaming support.


It’s more of a fitness tracker than a smartwatch, and it only has a few productivity apps, like its predecessor. Fitbit falls short in some aspects, such as GPS and displays quality, which is a little disappointing. Overall, this is a terrific alternative to the Apple Watch, with long battery life and plenty of fitness data.
