Fitbit Announces Versa 2 and a New Premium Subscription Service

Fitness equipment manufacturer Fitbit has just announced the successor to the popular Versa smartwatch. Aptly named the Versa 2, this smartwatch comes with a bunch of new additions, while maintaining some of the features that made the predecessor unique. One of the most notable additions to this wearable is a microphone that allows you to interact with Alexa, also a first for the smartwatch.

The watch uses an AMOLED display, an upgraded processor, and energy efficiency features that allow it to run for more than 5 days at a time. As for the variants, the company is offering some new additions this time including a Carbon Aluminum case, a Copper Rose Aluminum case, and a Mist Grey Aluminum case in a variety of band colors. The company also has an Amazon exclusive variant which uses a combination of Bordeaux with the Copper Rose Aluminum case. Unfortunately, the smartwatch can only be pre-ordered now and will be available by September 15.

The company also offers a Special Edition variant with exclusive watch bands for $229.95.

The company has also announced a new subscription service which will encourage users to “move more, sleep better and eat well” to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
