What’s New on Versa 2?
Always-on display mode enhancements. We’re excited to share that our recently-launched always-on display mode on Versa 2 is even better than before! Five additional clock face options are now available in color with faster transitions between always-on and active views. All powered by your device’s AMOLED display. (Always-on Display requires more frequent charging.)*
With always-on display mode, you can check the time and see your exercise stats in real time without having to interact with your device. The time and your workout metrics are just a glance away. (Note: If your device is in exercise mode, stats will continue to update every 60 seconds.)
Amazon Alexa “start exercise.” Start an exercise with your voice; finish it with your commitment. Versa 2 users will soon be able to use the Fitbit skill for Amazon Alexa to start an exercise from their wrist with Amazon Alexa Built-in, making tracking your workouts easier than ever.†* Find out how to set up the Fitbit skill for Amazon Alexa here.
Available to All Smartwatches
More advanced sleep tools. Get better in bed—no, seriously. Released for all smartwatches, your nightly Sleep Score is now available on your wrist (as well as remaining available in the Fitbit app)! Sleep Score helps your understand how well you sleep, based on three categories: sleep duration, time in deep and REM sleep, and sleep restoration. Plus, your smartwatch already tracks your time spent in light, deep, and REM sleep allowing you to dig deeper into your sleep data.*
And, you can now level up your sleep with Smart Wake, the smart alarm that uses machine learning to wake you during the most optimal time in your light or REM sleep cycle within a 30-minute interval prior to the start of your set alarm. Find out more about Fitbit’s other innovative sleep tools here.*
Exercise app redesign. We’ve updated the exercise app to have a new look and feel. Not only are visuals more streamlined, but you can now add all exercise shortcuts on device, and access 20 exercise modes all from your wrist.*
Clock face switcher app. You asked, we answered! The Clock Face switcher enables you to save five clock faces within the app, and toggle between them on wrist.*
Agenda app. We’ve even added a new agenda app to help manage your daily schedule right from your wrist.*
So what are you waiting for? With these new and upgraded Fitbit OS features, you’ll be more efficient than ever before. Fitbit OS update will be available for all users starting on December 3.
