Fitbit Launch New Lower-Priced Versa Lite

The new Versa Lite loses a few key features to the full-fat Versa, but the lower price point makes it a tempting proposition.

  • The Versa Lite Edition comes in four new colours, with optional woven bands coming soon,
  • The device can track exercise, heart rate, and sleep for £149.99,
  • It drops features such as floors climbed, lap swim, music and Fitbit Pay from the Versa.

Fitbit has just announced the launch of its new Versa Lite Edition, aimed to be a more affordable, and therefore more tempting, version of the Versa fitness tracker. Priced at £149.99 in the UK and $159.99 stateside the device is £40 or $40 cheaper than the Versa.

While the Lite loses out on features such as tracking floors climbed, laps swam, playing music and taking contactless payments, it is still a well equiped activity tracker with 15 different modes, heart rate monitoring, connected GPS, sleep tracking, notifications and water resistance to 50m, making it perfect for recording your Saturday run!

Fitbit Range
The Versa range now has three watches available in 9 colours, this excludes optional fabric straps!

Available in four bold colours with woven bands coming as an optional extra soon, the Versa Lite Edition isn’t short of options, couple this with four-day battery life and the device is a decent proposition for the price. It now sits alongside the Versa and the Versa Special Edition in the Versa range.

Fitbit is also currently testing a new rewards program. The idea is simple, exercise and use your Fitbit often and you collect reward points that can be used to save money on Fitbit devices and partner products from companies such as Adidas. Whether this test will see a major rollout soon remains to be seen.
