If you’re familiar with the original Versa, you’ll note some significant design improvements in this latest version. Fitbit trimmed the number of buttons on the watch from three to one – making it less complicated to use which is perfect for your dad if he prefers something simple. The smartwatch added a microphone and Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant which allows the user to request info with voice commands. Fitbit Versa 2 is also great at tracking steps and heart rate.
