Fitbit Versa 4 Review

The Fitbit Versa 4 is the now fourth generation of a very successful smartwatch for men and women. The smart watch is likely to be popular in particular because its functions are aimed equally at fitness and health. It measures the pulse, analyzes sleep, and permanently tracks physical activity. In addition, workouts can be recorded – and thanks to the built-in GPS module, routes can be tracked as well.

The watch, which is compatible with Android and iOS, also has an integrated voice assistant and provides news on the smartphone. Since a speaker and microphone are built in, phone calls can even be made directly via the wrist. The Fitbit Versa 3 also allows contactless payment with the help of its NFC chip.

The Fitbit Versa 4: Fashionable and slim, with typical recognition value

The Fitbit Versa 4 is a fashionable, slim smartwatch for men and women. Visually, it differs only minimally from its predecessor. However, one important change has taken place: Instead of the touch-sensitive area, there is a classic button. It is one of the elements for operation. However, the smart watch is essentially controlled via the touchscreen.

It is available for selection in three basic designs. A model with a rose gold case and an orange-red strap is especially aimed at the female target group. Another variant has a gold bezel, which enters into a combination with a blue strap. The series is completed by a model that is supposed to be black.

Since the Fitbit Versa 4 is water-resistant up to 5 ATM, it can remain on the wrist during swim training without any problems. Its display features an always-on mode. This can be activated if required. The screen then not only turns on when the wrist is tilted or the touchscreen is tapped. Instead, the display remains permanent, but works very energy-efficiently.

Smartwatch, workout partner and health coach

The Versa 4 uses the manufacturer’s own Fitbit OS operating system, which ensures compatibility with Android and iOS. To messages received on the smartphone, the smart watch informs its wearers. They can also reply to messages directly via the smartwatch’s display. When calls arrive, they can be answered and made via the Versa 4. Finally, it is equipped with a speaker and a microphone for this purpose.

Amazon Alexa is always available as a voice assistant. Wearers can ask her questions to get the latest news or weather forecast, for example. Reminders and alarms can also be set up, and smart home devices can be controlled.

An NFC chip is installed in the wearable so that contactless payment via Fitbit Pay is possible. Users who want to expand the watch’s capabilities can visit the Fitbit Store. Users can download apps there. They will also find numerous watchfaces that provide a fresh look as a digital watch face at any time.

Wearers record workouts with the Fitbit Versa 4 without any problems. It supports more than 40 different workouts. These include weight training, HIIT sessions, jogging, or even stand-up paddling. On top of that, it recognizes different activities by their typical movement patterns and records them automatically. A GPS module makes it possible to record route progressions.

The sporty watch also provides a training intensity map.

In it, the route progression can be viewed. But that’s not all: It can also be tracked when the athlete reached which heart rate and which speed.

In everyday life, the smartwatch counts steps, calculates calorie consumption and shows how exercise affects fitness and health. It evaluates sleep and offers wearers the option of tracking their periods.
