Fitbit is soon going to launch a new smartwatch dubbed the Fitbit Versa. As per the CEO of the company, the Fitbit Versa is aimed to have a mass-appeal meaning that it is going to be a design-centric smartwatch unlike the earlier iterations of Fitbit.

The smartwatch is also going to be available in multiple size variants which is again a good sign.

Once again, Mr. Evan Blass has done the job. Blass, in one of his tweets, has suggested that the upcoming Fitbit smartwatch is going to be called Fitbit Versa.

Given the track record of Evan Blass, we can safely assume that the next upcoming Fitbit smartwatch is going to be Fitbit Versa.

The Fitbit Versa will run on the same Fitbit OS which we saw last year with the earlier Fitbit smartwatches. After the not-so-good response the company received with the Fitbit Ionic, we kind of hope some software tweaks this time around.

In order to make this a watch for everyone, the Fitbit Versa is going to be introduced in a variety of color options. Moreover, there will be a bunch of size options available which earlier was not the case. This would certainly help the company increase the appeal of the Versa amongst the female audience as well.

Fitbit Versa color variants

The earlier Fitbit smartwatches did not appeal much to the potential female audience. The Fitbit Versa is going to take care of that thanks to a variety of color and size variants available

The smartwatch is going to be water resistant to 50 meters. It comes in four different color variants: black, silver, rose gold, and a charcoal and a lot of strap choices available as apparent in the image above.

The Versa is also going to pack in the SpO2 sensor that will be able to monitor for sleep apnea. The downside here is the fact that there will be no GPS support this time as well.

Coming to the price of the watch, it is almost confirmed that the Fitbit Verse is going to be sold at a price relatively lesser than the Fitbit Ionic owing to the fact that the company is aiming a larger audience this time.
