Fitbit India has officially launched the Fitbit Versa smartwatch, the company’s lightest smartwatch yet offering a simpler dashboard to get the health and fitness data easily. While the smartwatch has the cross-platform compatibility and it works to offer the fitness tracking and health status, there are a lot of other features that the Versa includes.
The Fitbit Versa comes with the Fitbit OS 2.0 that offers stats at a glance, with the daily and weekly health and fitness stats, historical activity, heart rate, and exercise summaries, action-oriented motivational messages, tips and tricks, and daily guidance. The OS will also be offering personalized data over time, with reminders, logging, summaries based on the data available, and this personalized data will be available later this year.
The other features of the Versa include Personalized fitness guidance with Enhanced 24/7 PurePulse heart rate tracking, Fitbit Coach for on-screen personal workouts, and the Sleep stages and insights to see how well you sleep, and track the fitness with the Cardio Fitness level tracking.
There’s a lot being offered for the female health tracking, and this will help women understand how their menstrual cycle connects to their overall health. Some of the important features under the Female health tracking include the following.
- Easily log your menstrual cycle data with symptoms recorded along
- See dynamic cycle predictions for where you are in your cycle and when to expect your period
- View holistic data in one place to reveal connections between your cycle and other stats in the Fitbit app
- Learn more about the menstrual cycle, ovulation, fertility and common misconceptions
- Join other women through Groups in the Community tab of the Fitbit app
“Female health tracking will empower women with a greater understanding of their menstrual cycles in conjunction with their physical and mental health, as they start to recognize what are normal trends over time versus what could be an issue to share with their doctor,” said Dr. Katharine White, MD MPH, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Boston University School of Medicine and Fitbit Advisor. “The nuances of the menstrual cycle have not been as widely studied across populations as have other areas in healthcare. This exciting development by Fitbit could help potentially create one of the largest databases of menstrual health metrics in the world, providing healthcare and research professionals with an unprecedented ability to study menstrual cycles and women’s health with real-world data.”
For the connected world, the features here are notifications and quick replies, music on Bluetooth headphones connected with the watch, Fitbit Pay in supported regions, Apps and clock faces, and compatibility with all the three major smartphone platforms – Android, iOS, and Windows. The Fitbit Versa is said to offer about 4 days of battery life.
Fitbit Versa will be available in black with a black aluminum case, gray with a silver aluminum case, or peach with a rose gold aluminum case. Fitbit Versa will be available in India in Q2, 2018 across Reliance Digital, Croma, Helios and other major retailers including e-commerce partners like Amazon India and Flipkart in India for INR 19,999.
