Fitbit Versa 2 has been replaced by Fitbit Versa 3.
Only lasted 8 months
I received my Fitbit Versa 2 as a gift on Mothers Day 2020. Yesterday (24/3/21) I returned to to where it was purchased (a JB Hi Fi Store) and received a full refund.
The screen just started scrolling and went white with black lines, did what the instruction book said to reset and made no difference, so I took it back to the store. Looking online it appears this is a very common issue.
I was pretty disappointed as I quite liked it.
I was going to get a replacement until they said to me at the store that it was quite common for the Fitbit Versa 2's to be returned due to malfunctions so they were quite happy to issue a refund.
Waste of money, now I'm going to save up for an Apple watch, no more fitbit's for me.
Purchased in May 2020 at JB Hi-Fi for $266.00.
versa 2 over heated
my Fitbit versa 2 was great till the last charge when i went to pick it up it burnt my fingers it was so hot now its dead I'm assuming it had a battery meltdown internally
Purchased for $300.00.
It has been a painful process getting this watch setup and I still can't download any watch faces or apps. I've done all the processes outlined in the support sites with no result.
Purchased in November 2020 at The Good Guys for $240.00.

Know better, choose better.
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.

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).
Purchased in April 2020 at The Good Guys for $275.00.
Do not buy
After only 3 weeks my Versa 2 screen swipe stopped working so I couldn’t access any apps. It’s just an expensive watch now. Fitbit won’t replace it as they say I bought it on line from an unauthorised reseller. Waste of money.
Purchased in December 2019 for $305.00.
This device has a few different colour scenes and one, which is a purple colour is called "girlish".
This is implying that purple is a girly colour and all girls must like purple and no boys are allowed to use it. this is shaming boys who like purple and girls who like other colours.
