Fitbit Versa Lite Features
- Elegant Design and Great Display
- Battery Life is Impressive
- Waterproof Rating
- Fitness Tracking
Just like the Versa, the Versa Lite comes in a fascinating design that is both stylish and elegant. Being housed in aerospace-grade aluminum, it’s very light and flexible.
You can wear it all day without feeling the need to remove it. It’s one of the lightest smartwatches on the market. The interchangeable straps are made of polyester and come in two sizes, a larger sized strap measuring 180-220 mm and a smaller sized strap measuring 140-180mm. Both large and small bands are contained in the box when you order for the Versa Lite.
On the display, it’s still transflective colored LCD which of course is easily visible under direct sunlight. So you shouldn’t have any problem reading complications on the screen outdoors.
The Versa Lite comes in four different colors allowing you to define your style. You can choose from; white band/aluminum case, lilac band/silver case, marine blue band/marine blue case and mulberry band/mulberry case. I will go with the lilac band/silver, it’s really adorable and I think it has the most stylish design. With four different varieties available, you sure do have the ball in your court to choose the color that rocks your style.
The Versa Lite still retains the awesome impressive battery life of the Versa. Fitbit states that it would last up to 4 days on regular usage. Acknowledging that usage varies among different users, you should expect about 3-5 days of battery life which I will say is a great bargain and its actually very impressive. This will allow you to go long on a single charge without worrying about the battery running down more often.
The Versa Lite comes with Bluetooth for connecting to compatible devices. It, however, lacks Wi-Fi and NFC chip, two essential hardware components present on the Versa and the Special Edition of the Versa. Check if your device is compatible with the Versa Lite
The Versa Lite can store up to 7 days of activities recoded, however it lacks the significant memory to take up your files and downloads. You won’t be able to listen to music tracks on the go with the Versa Lite. You will have to rely on your phone via Bluetooth which I think can be quite inconveniencing in certain situations, especially while working out.
The Versa Lite is rated 5ATM which makes it swim-proof, you can wear it to the pool or ocean. Unfortunately, though it lacks the ability to count the number of laps while swimming. This feature is present on the Versa and the Special Edition of the Versa.
Despite not having an altimeter onboard and deprived of certain fitness tracking features, the Versa Lite is still a great activity tracker. Onboard, is an accelerometer, heart rate sensor, gyroscope, SpO2 sensor all ready to track your active life.
The Versa Lite can track your activities all day, like steps, heart rate, distance, calories burned, active minutes, hourly activity and sedentary time and in addition 15 sports mode are preloaded of which SmartTrack can detect these sport modes for even more effective and accurate tracking.
There is also the female health tracking feature onboard which allows you to log period from the Fitbit App and compare it with previous ones to detect symptoms. The Versa Lite can track the complete sleep cycle and stages.
With tones of fitness tracking features available, the Versa Lite is no doubt a comprehensive fitness tracker.
Unfortunately, the Versa Lite just like the Versa doesn’t have GPS inbuilt, but you can still access GPS functions by connecting to your phone GPS which is great.
With Vibration motor and Bluetooth on-board makes the Versa Lite a great companion for your phone. Once paired with a compatible device, it will alert you when there is a new notification from your phone so you never get to miss important updates.
Although, the Versa Lite doesn’t have all the robust features like answering of calls directly from the Versa Lite, but it sure does a pretty good job in keeping you connected to what matters to you.
