Fitbit Versa Fitness Watch

As its name suggests, the watch is dedicated to fitness fanatics who want a reliable wristwatch to keep track of their physical activities. While it has all the smart functions that you may need to get in shape, it lacks support from a number of third-party applications found on Android and Apple stores. Overall, if you need a great fitness watch to track your activities, this is a top-notch item.

The most popular models include the standard version and a model that has a silicone strap. According to the manufacturers, the silicone strap is really helpful during intense workout session. Just like any other fully-functional watch, it comes with hordes of physical activity functions such as distance, active minutes, calorie tracker, step calculations, and sleep tracking. For swimmers, the company has developed a functional black silicone band that is waterproof. Since the original woven canvas strap is not waterproof, you can change the straps, if required.

The PurePulse heart monitor is at the core of health functions since it can increase the efficiency of your exercise by providing in-depth data. The device can also monitor heart health by matching the heart rate with historical data embedded in the device. Accordingly, it is perfect for measuring cardiovascular fitness levels. In fact, users can easily determine their heart rate zone during exercise. Using the technique known as photoplethysmography, your doctor can easily monitor heart rate by placing a sensor on the watch. The thimble-sized sensor does not come in the original packing; therefore users will need to buy it at an additional cost. This fitness watch also comes equipped with an advanced SpO2 sensor to check the oxygen levels in the blood. It is very useful for individuals who participate in outdoor events and activities that require intense physical exercise in hot and humid conditions.
