Fitbit’s latest smartwatches, the Versa 4 and Sense 2, put health and fitness front and centre. Powered by the new Fitbit OS, these devices are easy to use and designed so you can see what matters most to you, faster.
Thinner and lighter, they have been redesigned to feel more at home on your body, 24/7. The button, which was last featured on Versa 2, is back, with a new location that’s easier to access during your workout.
Packed with features
Stay on top of the metrics that matter most to you, from 24/7 heart rate monitoring and activity tracking to real-time stats, walk/run detection on your wrist, sleep tracking and stress tracking.
Equipped with more than six days of battery life and fast charging (12 minutes of charging = 1 day worth of battery life!), these smartwatches are sure to keep up.
Wear your device to bed to benefit from advanced sleep tracking tools, including our new Premium feature, Sleep Profile. It uses 10 sleep metrics to show you what type of sleeper you are, spot key patterns and help you improve your sleep quality.
You can also see how well your body is handling stress with your Stress Management Score so you know when to take a moment for guided breathing, meditation or a reflection.
Versa 4 and Sense 2 are compatible with both iOS and Android and packed with smart features including extended app and text notifications, glanceable alerts, smart replies (Android only) and more. Plus, coming soon, you’ll be able to access Google Maps and Google Wallet right on your wrist.

Stress less with Sense 2
Sense 2 takes Fitbit’s stress tracking tools even further, with a new Body Response sensor to track continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) for all-day stress management right from your wrist.
Along with cEDA, it uses metrics like heart rate, heart rate variability and skin temperature to help you better understand when your body experiences potential signs of stress. That way, you can be aware of your potential triggers and create a stress management practice to build your resilience over time.
Following a Body Response notification, Sense 2 recommends different ways to manage stress in the moment including mood logging, guided breathing, mindfulness sessions, on-wrist or in the Fitbit app.
In addition to the Body Response sensor, the smartwatch is equipped with Fitbit’s other sensors to deliver a holistic view of your overall health.
Fitbit uses a technique that turns metal into vapor, which allows the manufacturer to integrate the metal electrodes of these sensors directly into the display glass of the device. This creates an even more simplified, streamlined look without sacrificing on technology.
