Fitbit Versa Lite Edition Hands-on, First Impressions
Fitbit has officially launched its newest fitness tracker, the Versa Lite Edition, in the Philippines.
The Versa Lita Edition can be called as the younger, more youthful sibling of the Fitbit Versa. Looking at it up close, the Versa Lite Edition is incredibly attractive. The band and the aluminum body come in a variety of colors and well, if plain ones aren’t for you, then there’s an entire range of straps available for you to personalize your Fitbit. The Versa Lite that we have on-hand sports the eye-catching Marina Blue. It’s absolutely lightweight and yet, it feels excellent in the hands. It’s probably even lighter than an actual wristwatch.
As for the smartwatch’s display, it’s protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and it features the same square with rounded corners shape as its older sibling, the Fitbit Versa. Similar to the Versa as well, the Lite Edition features a touch display with accurate and vibrant color reproduction.
Different from the original however is that the Versa Lite only has one button, located on the left side of the smartwatch. Pressing on it allows you awaken the watch’s display (if you don’t feel like tapping on it, that is) and it also acts as a return button when browsing through the various features.
Turning the smartwatch over, situated on the rear are the following sensors: optical heart rate sensor, SpO2 sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and the ambient light sensor. The charging port is located right below the sensors.
Overall, despite being called the Versa Lite Edition, this smartwatch is still pretty much premium on all sides. As someone who owns a regular wristwatch and keeps forgetting to wear it, seeing and getting my hands on the Versa Lite Edition has actually changed me into a watch wearer and user. We’ve yet to take this for a full-on review so do watch out for that.
The Fitbit Versa Lite Edition is priced at PHP 10,390 and is now available across Digital Walker branches.
