Hits: 32

Fitbit, Inc. the leading global wearables brand, announced today the availability of Fitbit Versa™ at major retailers worldwide for 8,490 baht. Versa is our lightest smartwatch, featuring a modern design, advanced health and fitness features, 4+ day battery life, smart features people want most and cross platform compatibility – all at a competitive price.

New Fitbit features will be available:

Quick replies: Android mobile device users can respond to messages on the go using Fitbit Versa and Fitbit Ionic ™ smartwatches. Create and send up to five custom pre-populated quick replies of 60 characters or less to text messages and messenger apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Female health tracking: Available to all adult users who identify as female in the Fitbit® app to track their menstrual cycle and symptoms. Makes it easier to manage their cycle with 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.

“We’re thrilled for consumers around the world to experience Versa, a beautifully designed smartwatch for all with advanced health and fitness features, access to our large global social network and smart features people find most useful at an approachable price,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.

“We believe Versa is a smartwatch that will have mass appeal, attracting new audiences and helping us capture a previously untapped segment of users in this growing wearables category.”

Powered by Fitbit OS 2.0, Versa makes your daily and weekly health and fitness data even more accessible on the go with a redesigned dashboard, which delivers action-oriented motivational messages, tips and tricks and support to help you stay on track to reach your goals.

Advanced health and fitness features include personalized on-device workouts with Fitbit Coach, enhanced 24/7 PurePulse® heart rate tracking, 15+ exercise modes including automatic SmartTrack™swim tracking with water resistance up to 50 meters, and automatic sleep stages tracking.

In addition to new quick replies for Android users, smart features you need include: app, calendar, call and text smartphone notifications; access to Fitbit’s growing App Gallery now with more than 650 popular brand, developer and Fitbit Labs apps,

and customizable clock faces; wallet-free payments via Fitbit Pay, supported by more than 60 banks and card issuers in 15 countries and on-device music for more motivation with access to Deezer, and personal music playlists.

All of these features come with 4+ days battery life,iii and like all Fitbit devices, Versa is compatible across Android, iOS and Windows devices.

“Female health tracking will empower women with a greater understanding of their menstrual cycles in conjunction with their physical and mental health, as they start to recognize what are normal trends over time versus what could be an issue to share with their doctor,” said Dr. Katharine White, MD MPH, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Boston University School of Medicine and Fitbit Advisor.

“The nuances of the menstrual cycle have not been as widely studied across populations as have other areas in healthcare. This exciting development by Fitbit could help potentially create one of the largest databases of menstrual health metrics in the world, providing healthcare and research professionals with an unprecedented ability to study menstrual cycles and women’s health with real world data.”

Lightweight and modern design for everyday life

Our lightest, most approachable watch yet, Versa is comfortable, durable and versatile enough for all-day and night wear. It features an ultra-thin, anodized aluminum case and is slightly tapered and angled in its design to fit small or large wrists.

The rounded square silhouette display features a bright, colorful touchscreen and sharp graphics up to 1,000 nits, providing the ideal format to see all of your data on your wrist.

Fitbit Versa is available today at B2S, .Life, King Power, Powerbuy, VMart and Lazada. The device is also available for sale on Fitbit.com and at major online retailers for 8,490 baht in black with a black aluminum case, gray with a silver aluminum case, or peach with a rose gold aluminum case; accessories range from 1,090 baht to 3290 baht.
