The Apple Watch has just received a new rival: the Fitbit Versa smart watch. This is the third attempt by the San Francisco-based company, after the failed Blaze and Ionic. It is therefore time to make a comparison of specifications for the Fitbit Versa and the Apple Watch .
Technical specifications of the Fitbit Versa and the Apple Watch
Taking into account the technical specifications of the Fitbit Versa, we see that the most appropriate is to compare it with the 38mm Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 3 models. In this sense, it should be noted that the 42mm model has a larger battery with a longer life (something that Apple does not reflect in its specifications).

Fitbit Versa and Apple Watch: availability and prices
The Fitbit Versa watch has just been presented and will be available to the public in 3 or 4 weeks , when the first units will be delivered. Its current price is 199.95 euros, while the Apple Watch Series 1 is 269 euros and the Series 3 costs 369 euros. However, both watches can be found at lower prices in some stores since they were introduced in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
The Versa stands out above all in the duration of its battery, which Fitbit assures is 4 days . The Apple Watch can last up to 2 full days depending on use, with it being more convenient to recharge it every night. In addition to this, the Versa has a very interesting feature that the Apple Watch does not have as standard: automatic sleep monitoring.
Fitbit Versa hopes to attract users with its more affordable and longer-lasting proposal than the Apple Watch
However, Fitbit’s new watch is born alone when compared to the ecosystem that accompanies the Apple Watch. Those who have this wearable , need to use it with an iPhone necessarily , which brings with it the apps Health and Activity for monitoring our physical condition. iMessage, Apple Music, FaceTime audio calls, unlocking a Mac, Siri and AirPods are some of the advantages that surround the Apple Watch compared to the Versa.

In the end, Fitbit’s watch is a more refined version in design and with a range that far exceeds that of the Apple watch at a slightly lower price. Despite its attractive autonomy, this feature didn’t save the Blaze or the Ionic (or other competitors) in the past.
