Found all the features simple to use. Ideal watch for the basic things I require. My first smart fitness watch and very happy with it. I can recommend this watch.

Fit Bit Versa 2 Band
Got a fit bit Versa 2 for mothers day in 2019, product great band broke in about 13 months even though I don't wear in the shower or swimming brought another band for close to $50 in June (2020) tonight it also broke (October 21/10/2020) NOT HAPPY do I have to look forward to replacing the band every 6 months?

Love the Fitbit Versa 2.
I had a Fitbit charge 3 and compared to that, the Versa 2 is excellent. So many more features and tracking capabilities. I have my music on it, Alexa and many more features. Would recommend this to anyone, looks great and have had no problems with it. Received it in August for my birthday.

Fit bit versa 2 Good but bad too
Doesn't do sleeping heart rate like my Alta did, you have to pay a monthly fee Of $14.99 AU a month I think that stinks and is rude of them they now make you pay for it especially that price, how ever it does do daytime heart rate.
I do like that you can pay for items at the shops with your watch but at times it has let me down with a spiralling cog so have had to go and get card

Swimming lap function gone
This is my third fitbit watch (Blaze, Versa) and was terribly disappointed to find the Versa 2 no longer displays swim laps in real time on the watch like the previous examples, if you are looking for a waterproof stopwatch buy Versa 2, if your looking for a smart fitness tracker buy another brand.

Don't waste money on it.
Notifications always drop. Most of the time the app can't access to the wallet. Fitbit pay doesn't work sometimes. It's a inferior product but still cost you at least $259. If you are little serious about smart watch, don't buy it.

Not good for swimmers
I had a versa 1, which I bought specifically to measure swimming laps Then within warranty it broke. The shop replaced it with a Versa 2 . But the versa 2 Does not measure laps. Why Could the versa 1 measure laps and this”upgraded” version not? I don’t need it to tell me how long I’ve been swimming I could look at the clock, I WANT IT TO MEASURE LAPS

Love it! And I normally hate watches
I am quite surprised how much I love the Fitbit versa. It’s easy to use, clock face can be altered to suit the occasion. Covers all the things I need (even the girly stuff) and it’s not too complicated that I need to phone a friend just to adjust a setting.
Works really well with my iPhone and when I upgraded phones the change over was easy as anything.
The thing I love the most though is the battery life! It seems to last forever which is great because I always forget I need to charge it

Fantastic quality for a budget price.
Love it, I had a Fitbit Alta for at least 3 years before this. Only upgraded because I wanted a waterproof tracker and also the battery was starting to go on my older one. Great prices everywhere. The screen does go off and start timers and breathing exercises when I’m showering sometimes but most likely because you are supposed to start a swimming workout on the screen or something before using it continuously in water. No major issues, love it.

Upgraded from my old Fitbit Charge 2 to the Versa 2. Though it has the larger face and colourful, there are some positives and negatives for me. The positives include the larger face, nice being colourful, has quite a few apps, as per usual - steps/bpm/goals etc. these can be added and adjusted to your personal requirements. Even though the Versa comes with the ability of using pay wave, this is something I personally don’t use. Other features include weather, exercise, alarm, Spotify apps, again, can be tailored to your needs. It does what is ...required. It’s fun and does motivate oneself. My negative, having the features of weather or Alexa, which is slow, you need to sync everyday. Without constant syncing, these apps are dormant and if using you do need to be connected to the internet but also have your phone nearby for these apps to work. For the price, I expected less inconvenience. A bonus in the limited package, is the woven wrist strap. For myself, this is an advantage as the rubber band would irritate my skin.

My wife bought my Versa 2 at Noel Leemings about two months ago. I don't own a smart phone and we were assure the Windows 10 app would be fine.
The install was not simple, the Versa 2 doesn't always sync, and for about a week I have been unable to change clock faces. The Versa 2 also doesn't always record sleep correctly.
Now the watch is showing "clock error" and telling me to go to the "mobile app and select another clock face", as I don't have the mobile app, this is not helpful.
The "help" appears to run on Twitter....as I don't use Twitter, this isn't much use to me.
We paid NZD 379.00 for the Versa 2, which is simply useless. I suspect I will end up using it as a fishing sinker.

Do not buy if you're serious about fitness tracking
Being a fitness tracker, the basic things you would consider are its ability to track steps, track your heart rate, and the convenience of having to control your fitness apps at your watch as opposed to fumbling around with your phone while you're huffing and puffing away.
After using the Fitbit Versa 2 extensively for nearly a month I have found that, sadly, it fails in all three of the above categories.
Steps are overestimated.
This can usually be expected with such devices as it's difficult to find that threshold of what is a step an...d what is simply grabbing a mug out of the dishwasher, overzealously playing the piano, or even brushing your teeth. However, this gets even more frustrating when you see that it overestimates your steps when actually walking or running, making you trust the device less and go back to just relying on your mobile phone (more accurate, I found).

Now I actually understand how to use it, I love it. I’m not a person who worries about checking my phone. I often miss messages. They just pop straight up on my watch and I can answer messages by talking. It’s waterproof I wear it in the shower, while doing washing no problem. Great easy to use watch. I’m very happy. Pink looks great too.
