    Less Impressed As Time Goes By,I have been using Fitbit devices for nearly ten years. While I have been satisfied over the years my satisfaction has been lessoned over the past 3 years because of a lack of progress with Fitbit devices. Fitbit devices today are made for people who want to track steps counts through the day and occasionally track a moderate workout. Current devices are not made for anyone tracking a serious workout.Below are my perceptions of the basic functions of the watch. Rating each on a 1-5 or NA (Not Applicable) scale. The reasons for NA to be included are explained.Fitbit Application (4) – The Fitbit App is great. One consolidated place to track my meals and workouts including everything from activity to corresponding heart rate during the workout. The only reason it would not get a 5 is that it’s only as good as the data it gets, and Fitbit restricts input to only their devices. There are ways to import data through other integrated apps but none of them get the raw data in its mist useful and meaningful form. If Fitbit would accept data from other devices, I would be willing to pay for the premium service but that does not seem to be part of their plan.Step Counter (5) – Fitbit is still the king of step counting. Seems to be the most accurate still although most smartphones can come close.Workout tracking (2) – Tracking is typically a manual task but if the heart monitor detects an elevated heart rate for a period it will attempt to guess what you’re doing. It can make mistakes and on occasion has detected an hour on the lawn mower as a long bike ride.Stairs (NA) – Fitbit says it can track the number of flights of stairs you have climbed. I find no evidence that the number of stairs climbed is anything more than a random number generator. I climb two short flights of stairs daily and have been recorded climbing over 150 flights of stairs on occasion with 75 being a daily average. Putting the Fitbit device under a common restroom hand dryer can add flights of stairs quickly. This is not a real measurement.Miles (4) – While this is accurate when walking outside it will track miles for walks internally using step counts and an estimate stride. Seems pretty accurate but I am not really sure I should be getting miles credited for time spent on a rower.Calories (3) – This seems to be pretty accurate based on the data it has and helps me maintain a deficit of calories.Stress (2) – This seems nice but is a subjective measurement. I can be in the middle of major problems and it will tell me I have little or no stress.Heart Rate (2) – This is perhaps the most disappointing feature in this device. Fitbit tracks your heart rate and provides feedback on your heart rate in the form of Zone minutes which assess your daily exercise and activity. This data is also used to determine your calories burned and how many calories you can consume to reduce or maintain your weight. This feature works for low to moderate activity. If you are an active person the Versa 3 will not accurately track your heart rate, not even close. I had some much trouble getting an accurate reading that made sense that I purchased a Polar H10 with a chest strap to compare data and the results are kind of embarrassing for Fitbit. I row for 75 minutes on a concept 2 rower with the resistance set to the maximum level (10). While my H10 shows my heart rate being consistent my Fitbit will show my heart rate as lower, sometimes by 50 beats per minute (bpm). At these rates you can manually check your own heart rate for comparison to both devices and the H10 is far more accurate. This would not be a problem except for the fact that the Fitbit app will not accept accurate input from the more accurate device. For the same workout my zone minutes can fluctuate from 50 to 150 in the same week with heart rate measurements on the H10 that are remarkably consistent.With the less accurate heart rate tracking and the corresponding lower zone minutes the app will record your activity levels as lower and reduce your calorie intake accordingly. Thus, an inaccurate heart rate literally takes food out of your mouth. While some might say that allowing you to eat less through this inaccuracy will help you lose weight faster most folks on a diet would still express unhappiness.After 10 years of Fitbits, I have decided to give the Apple Watch a try. Apple Health and some other applications will accept input from the H10 and the Apple watch. I can track food intake with MyFitnessPal. I am hoping these things combined will allow me to meet my goals until Fitbit can either improve their accuracy or allow input from more highly specialized devices.In fairness, I have lost 70 lbs. and kept it off for 5 years and during that time I have been using Fitbit devices, so clearly, I have been successful with Fitbits. I am hoping that I can move a little father with more accurate data and less frustration.

    It’s not a health thing, It’s a memory thingYou know what’s really annoying about SmartWatches these days? It’s just too much they ding ding ding over every little thing. I wanted one that would simply tell me when a meeting was about to start and when I had gotten a call. I don’t want sleep tracking I don’t want to know how many steps I’ve had I don’t want my heart to be sonogrammed. I don’t want it to tweet a status for me automatically every time I have a good day. I just want to know when I have a meeting coming up. I can’t keep my phone with me at all times so having the watch on me makes a big difference. Also I think it’s really pointless to have a watch that doesn’t have an always on display if you can’t tell what time it is at a glance then you might as well just be using a phone. It’s hilarious to me that Fitbit of all the brands what’s the best fit for my needs. It’s also light and mostly thin, It’s water resistant which is great. It could be a terrible fitness watch I don’t know cuz I don’t use it for that but I can tell you it’s a pretty good watch. I charge it every 4ish days.

    It’s good, not great.I bought this for my wife a few months ago. All in all it’s pretty good. The screen is a decent size and looks great. Lots of choices for bands. Can track sleep, walking, and numerous other things. The bad part about it, you can’t text back, you either use pre written texts or voice to text. Also, the phone capabilities on it are very very poor. When I call her and she answers with her watch, it drops out every few words and I need her to keep repeating what she’s saying. So, if you need for texting or calls, I would pass. If just needed as a watch and tracker, you’ll be good.

    I replaced my Fitbit Charge with this modelThe Charge kept breaking after a year and change. I hope this one will be more durable, but I bought the extended warranty this time just in case.I was having trouble reading the Charge (I’m 67) and the Versa is 50% bigger, mostly with large, easily read characters, although you have to tap the screen to show the number part of the date, which is annoying.In the pool, commands on the face gets activated when I didn’t do anything, even after putting in a mode that was supposed to stop that from happening. But it’s not too bad.Fitbit is said to still have the best sleep tracking of any device, which is why I have it, but it’s inconsistent. Sometimes it misses portions of the night or the whole night. You can edit it on the site or app, but then sometimes it does weird things like say that you got LESS deep sleep when you add more time.I’d buy it again. It seems like the best thing out there for my needs.

    Excellent Price and Great Watch…I was deciding between this and the Apple Watch so got both. The Apple watch was about $400 so I assumed it would have a much better feature set so I was surprised how great this thing is.I can’t think of any Apple Watch features I’m missing and I’ve always loved the accuracy of the Fitbit auto-detection with running.Finally the rounded look is smooth and it’s incredibly easy to operate – not to mention the up to six day battery life.With the sale going on I can’t believe this was only $155 compared to the $400+ Apple Watch.If anyone is on the fence, I can’t recommend this enough.Easy five star review and based on my prior interactions with FitBit with old watches, I’m confident if I run into any trouble they’ll be helpful. Just a great product.

    Replacement FitbitI had an older Fitbit that I needed to replace after damaging it.This version is so much better.I can read it even in bright light. It has more exercise options., as well as other options overall which I don’t use. Less is more for me.However I do like being able to read texts on my watch.The only drawback to this one and my other Fitbit is that it is not accurate about distance walked or hiked. It always under reports. I have compared reading to known distances and it is consistently under estimates.But it’s okay because I am aware of it and just accept it.

    First time buying a fitbit-Love it!This was my first time purchasing a tracker or smart watch. I was looking for just a fitness tracker but for the price of the versa and the other features I couldn’t pass up a good deal. I have never owned an apple watch or any other smart watch so I can’t compare it to them. It has all the features I was looking for- track my daily steps, heart rate, calories burned,etc.I love that I can receive calls/text messages on my Fitbit and I also use Fitbit pay alot. I have still been unsuccessful on adding my Pandora stations to the watch. I have watched several videos it just isn’t working. I got a paid subscription to Pandora which is required. This isn’t a big deal to me. I’m ok with using my phone for Pandora while working out.It’s interesting to see my sleep scores and quality of sleep.I haven’t had any issues with the Fitbit. I love it!!

    Nice feature setThe Versa 3 has an easy to read screen, and navigation through the menus is easy enough.The watch band is not my favorite. The material is ‘grippy’, and the holes are spaced such that I find myself constantly tightening or loosening the band throughout the day. If I go one notch tighter, the watch becomes uncomfortably tight. If I go one notch looser, the watch slips down resulting in a nagging ‘irritation’ that something is hanging off my wrist. I have already ordered some replacement bands to try.The magnetic charger is neat. Magnetic polarity prevents incorrect alignment and aids in quick proper alignment. Day three, and the watch still doesn’t need charging, showing half-full on the battery meter on the FitBit website. The connecting cord for the charger is irritatingly short. C’mon FitBit; a $230 watch, and you cannot spring for a two-foot cord for the charger?This brings me to my discussion of the FitBit app, website, device setup, etc.First: setup is horrible, worse even. If the device encounters anything it doesn’t like during the setup process, you may find yourself stuck in FitBit setup loop.After multiple attempts to setup the device with my phone, then my laptop, then either… add device, delete device, power off everything, wash rinse repeat.I visited the FitBit web site for support, and went into ever-lasting ‘hold’ awaiting tech support. Meanwhile, I did exactly as they wanted, and spent @ 1/2 hour viewing posts in their forums. I finally found a post that was similar to mine, and the poster provided what was a breakthrough solution for me.Basically, once the FitBit device pairs with a phone, reboots of the phone retain the information. After the first pairing, the info was saved. Subsequent attempts to pair failed “Pairing rejected by Versa 3”.The solution? On the phone, go to settings, apps, FitBit app, then force-quit the app.Next, uninstall the app, reboot the phone, reinstall the app, then re-pair with the watch.FYI: I have GB internet, and the download of the FitBit took @ 15 minutes each time. Thinking my internet was bad, I tested downloads from other sites, all was well.The setup and configuration process was horrible – so bad, I am holding open my option to return the device within the allotted time frame.The phone app is deeply intrusive; to enable all the features of the FitBit, it needs access to nearly everything on your phone. if you want to use Google Assistant or Amazon’s Alexis, your device must be wide open for the FitBit. If you are concerned about privacy, these options are probably a deal breaker.The FitBit Versa 3 is designed for apps. Some apps are free, some cost money. The music feature requires a subscription to a streaming service.I have a decent Motorola phone, and have had no troubles with it – ever. After installing the FitBit app, I have had the phone flake out on me twice so far. I actually had to uninstall and reinstall other apps after installing the FitBit to overcome the issues. And now my phone is using @ 20% more battery, even if I do not intentionally interact with the Fitbit app; it is always running, monitoring everything.Easy to read color display. Many features. Available apps.Crap band. Crap software. Intrusive software. No support. Terrible installation. Slow downloads.Short charger cord.Many features require use of the website or Wifi. Yesterday the “Find My Phone” feature worked fine on the watch. Today it was unable to run. I restarted the watch, and it was then able to run.Navigation on the watch’s touch screen takes some getting used to. For many menu items, swiping one direction takes you there, swiping the reverse direction may or may not take you back, depending upon how deep you are into the menu, feature, or app.The haptic button on the watch takes a bit of practice to use effectively, and it can be awkward to reach across the watch and get your thumb placed ‘just so’ to activate this ‘non-button, button’.This review is an account of my experiences so far with the FitBit Versa 3. As much as I want to like this device, it is as if FitBit has gone to extremes to make this a challenge.Respectfully submitted.

    Perfect!I didn’t even know quite how great it was until I was encouraged to get an Apple Watch Series 7 and I’ve downloaded a dozen apps trying to get it to track any of the info on the Fitbit, which it can’t. Even the free Fitbit info gives detailed sleep data, steps, zone minutes 24/7, etc. I only have to charge it about every other day vs 2x/day for Apple Watch. my only complaint is that I cannot for the life of me get it to switch to Fahrenheit, but I should get more familiar with Celsius anyway. I would also like to monitor my heart rate and time in specific zones while swimming and if I lock it to swim I can’t see time and HR, but when it’s not locked it always says my heart rate is only in the 90’s when I know it’s way elevated. I don’t know if any watches work while swimming though. Love the color. Definitely get more steps when used on dominant hand. I swap watches side to side and the dominant hand one always logs at least 1,000 more steps, and I do change the wrist location in the app. I would rather spend $500 on a Fitbit than use a free Apple Watch, if you’re looking for health and fitness info anyway.

    Amazing battery life, so-so heart rate monitoringThe battery life is incredible – I can get by just charging it once or twice a week while I shower. The heart rate monitoring seems good sometimes, and not so great others. Sometimes when I’m exercising, it shows my heart rate steady at around 80 BPM, when I can tell it’s much higher.The apps available are limited in number and function, but the built-in ones probably do what you’re looking for. Being able to dictate text messages hands-free is a nice feature.
