Think of the Versa as a follow-up to the Fitbit Blaze. The Fitbit Versa is a smaller Fitbit Ionic aimed at women, that comes with a more attractive aluminium body that's only 11.2 mm thick and a choice of bands, and will be retailing for only $199.
The Versa, thankfully, addresses the issue, with a considerably smaller footprint.
The Versa brings a rounder design than its predecessor. Quick-release straps are available for the Versa in a wide range of materials including metal, silicone, leather and canvas. Becker explained that numerous parts of the design that interact with your skin are curved and made to appear and feel softer. Step goals and heart rate trends are shown on new interfaces, letting you more easily keep an eye on daily progress or your resting heart rate. Now, the firm has returned with something a bit more refined, with a smartwatch called the Versa.
The Versa's unveiling comes just after Apple surpassed Fitbit in the wearables market.
Fitbit itself will also offer bands.

When it comes to Fitbit Pay, the company's wearable payment service, the situation is a little. unusual. But the Versa watch can also answer texts, download apps, and store music. "We haven't forgotten about iOS users, we're working on it", Melanie Chase, vice president of product marketing, told reporters. It feels like a mass appeal smartwatch adding NFC payments would help spur adoption, but apparently that's not how Fitbit sees it. There's also a potentially massive new feature called "female health tracking", which lets women track their monthly cycles to look out for variations and changes. You'll be able to choose from a selection of colors and watchbands as well.

Last year, Facebook introduced Messenger Kids, a standalone app for kids ages six to 12.
