The Fitbit Versa Is the First Real Bargain Smartwatch The Fitbit Versa Is the First Real Bargain Smartwatch

“That’s a nice watch,” said my colleague, about an hour after I strapped the Fitbit Versa to my person.

Finally, I think, Fitbit might be giving me what I…

The “Your Fitbit Ionic is running low on battery” notification arrived on my phone and in my inbox at the same time around one yesterday afternoon, suggesting I take a moment to charge my smartwatch. Instead, I went to a couple of meetings, took the train home, went for a brisk walk with the dog, and made dinner.…

Why Does Fitbit's New Watch Skip a Feature Fans Were Clamoring For? Why Does Fitbit's New Watch Skip a Feature Fans Were Clamoring For?

I’m a big Apple Watch user, and every time I strap on a Fitbit, I run into the same problem. Instead of opening the Fitbit app to look at my heart rate and sleep cycle, I open Apple Health and then am immediately disappointed because none of the data from my Fitbit actually syncs with Apple Health. Which means it…

How Smart Watches Might Actually Improve Your Health How Smart Watches Might Actually Improve Your Health

If you sacrifice style to strap a clunky Apple Watch or Fitbit to your wrist, one of the tradeoffs is supposedly the ability to better monitor your health.
