One of these new features is Quick Replies, which lets Android mobile devices respond to messages on the go using their Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic smartwatches. Users can create up to five custom pre-populated quick replies of 60 characters or less to text messages and messenger apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Another new feature is Female Health Tracking. This feature is available for users who set their profile as female in the Fitbit app, and lets them track their menstrual cycle and symptoms. This makes it easier to manage their cycles and how it impacts their fitness. It also gives a more complete picture of health and fitness data, all in one place! Versa and Ionic users will also be able to view female health tracking information on-device.


Versa is powered by Fitbit OS 2.0, and now comes with a redesigned dashboard that makes your daily and weekly health and fitness data even more accessible. Even when you’re on the go!

These exercise modes include automatic SmartTrack swim tracking with water resistance up to 50 meters! It also includes sleep stages tracking, so you can make sure you’re getting enough rest for all that exercise you’re doing.
