Fitbit is launching the Fitbit Versa 3, adding new health and convenience features to the company’s most popular smartwatch family.
The updated Fitbit Versa 3TM includes exciting new health and fitness features, such as GPS and Active Zone Minutes (AZM), as well as increased battery life of up to 10+ days.
An even smarter device
On-device GPS, workout intensity map, enhanced PurePulse 2.0 technology, and AZM make it easier than ever to stay on top of your fitness goals, beyond tracking your daily steps.
Fitbit Versa 3 has even more smart features to add convenience to your day, including a built-in speaker and microphone to take quick phone calls, send calls to voicemail and adjust call volume – all from the wrist.
Use Fitbit Pay to make quick, secure payments while avoiding public surfaces, and get access to thousands of apps and clock faces. New curated playlists from music partners Deezer and Spotify, make it easy to pick the right music for your workout intensity level.
Its updated design and interface take a cue from the new Fitbit Sense, including softer lines, increased comfort, greater responsiveness, and faster, more effortless interactions.
The Fitbit Versa 3 will also utilise the same magnetic charger as the Fitbit Sense. With an already long battery life of 6+ days on each device, if you find yourself running low, a 12-minute quick charge provides one full day of use. Cross-compatible accessories feature an easy, quick-release band attachment and come in a wide variety of colours and styles.
Pricing and availability
The Fitbit Versa 3 will be available in South Africa in October through Dis-Chem, Takealot, Sportsmans Warehouse, Cape Union Mart, Total sports, Incredible Connection, Makro, E-Bucks, FNB and other retailers, at the RRP of R5,699 in black/black aluminum, pink clay/soft gold aluminum and midnight/soft gold aluminum.
