Fitbit Versa 2 has been replaced by Fitbit Versa 3.
Good for tracking sleep not much else.
The step counter is not accurate. I can be laying in bed and steps increase when I move. Only good things are sleep tracking and ability to use pay wave.
Purchased in February 2021.
Not good for running. Battery does not last and to change the band a -10 SO SO BAD AND DIFFICULT TO CHANGE
My fitbit versa 2 ok but not good for running and workouts and the battery only lasted around 2 days. To change the band so terrible so hard to change . Never again

Can’t trust the calorie burnt figure
Calorie used figure is too high. Use 80% of what watch says as true figure. The zone minutes measure is faulty. I ride for an hour cycling and end up soaked in sweat and show abnormally low 4 zones. Sleep function is faulty. Tried different wrist. Tried pushing versa higher on forearm. Faulty sleep mode and overstating calories burnt seems to be a common problem.

Life span 12 months
Bought this watch to track my fitness and mainly because it was wanter proof to 50 mtrs...
Worked for just over 12 months... won't turn on or charge anymore so if you are thinking of buying this watch to use in water, think again.

Fantastic - but paid premium after purchasing a product???
First off, the watch itself is fantastic. Its a perfect entry level watch for anyone that doesn't want to pay the premium for Samsung gear or apple watches. My biggest grip with the aforementioned is the battery life. And the versa 2 absolutely smashes it, I get between 4-5 days use out of a single charge, exactly what I want out of a wearable. I think its silly to spend $400+ for a wearable that has to be taken off every single day to charge it.
It has all the features you ultimately need in a smart watch - notifications for messages and pho...ne calls, vibrating alarms, quick weather app and all the health fitness tracking goodness you could need, minus GPS. The screen isnt fantastic but thats fine, its a watch not a phone, as long as its legible then it doesnt really matter in my opinion. The bands are great, and whats really cool is fitbit provides both a small and a large band, Being smack bang in the middle this means I have two bands to use before I need to purchase another one. The downside is the build quality seems iffy, a hole for the buckle already has a crack in it and whats worse is its a hole I have never used. Keeping in mind I have owned this watch for about 2 weeks now, it seems a bit quick to start deteriorating already. The way the bands click in is a bit weird and feels a touch flimsy so if you are a fan of changing out bands this may be an issue for you, but after the first install I havent taken them off and it hasnt been an issue. The spotify app only works as a remote control, which for me is perfectly fine, but others have been disappointed you cant go through and choose songs. As I have said from the get go, this watch really brings it back to earth, I am not into watches that can do everything a phone can do, its a watch, I want a watch with a few extra features like notifications so I dont miss when someone calls me and my phone is facing down on my desk or in my pocket where I cant feel the vibration. Lastly this watch does have a contactless payment feature, however I have not used it, being another third party I am not sure how their practices are as far as storing credit card details so I think I will old off for now. Now for the big fat steaming pile of crap that Fitbit has dumped on top of this product. Something that not only confuses me but also downright annoys me off. A premium, subscription service. The last thing any person wants to do after spending $200+ on a product, is have to pay for a subscription fee on top of that, absolutely bonkers. Now I will say that you dont really need it especially if you arent interested in the fitness side of things but it is just straight out frustrating to spend $250 on a product that doesn't get the full offering from the company. What is even more insulting is you get a basic 30 day trial. If fitbit really wants to play it this way, they should at bare minimum provide 6 months free for entry level products and 12-24 months free for the premium Versa or Sense watch lines. Until this changes Its only getting 3 stars from me, the subscription service annoys me off that much I am taking 2 stars off because aside from that, its a damn near perfect entry level smart watch with all the features you need and none of the extras you dont need.

Fitbit versa2. Sleek design. Useful to me.
I give it a 7 or 3 1/2 star.
What I do like: It is a good looking watch to me. I wear it everyday and growing to like its usefulness. I track my steps ( not 100% sure if it is accurately counting though as one day we drove to Sydney and it congratulated me with 10k steps duh..). I use the heart rate monitor, look at the statistics they send you 1xpw, use the msg fwd on the app, paywave and Alexa. I am no fitness super hero and haven't used the different programs that are available as most of the features require you to pay for premium members...

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?

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

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.
