Just the other day thanks to a leak, we know that Fitbit has a new smartwatch in the works in the form of the Versa 2. We expected that there would be some kind of announcement made at IFA 2019, but it seems that the company was planning to announce it much earlier than that as they have since made it official.

The Fitbit Versa 2 will be the company’s latest smartwatch. Fitbit has typically been known for their fitness trackers, but in recent times, the company has started to expand to smartwatches. With the Versa 2, Fitbit is boasting that the device will have a five-day battery life, which is impressive as most wearables tend to need charging after a day or two.

It will also come with new features like a sleep score. This is based on your heart rate while you are sleeping and resting, where Fitbit will tell you how good of a sleep you might have. There is also a smart wake feature (that will also come to other Fitbit wearables in the future) where it can wake you up at an optimal time in your sleep cycle.

The Fitbit Versa 2 will also come with a heart rate sensor and will also boast 50m water resistance which means that you can use it while you swim. If the Fitbit Versa 2 is a smartwatch you might be interested in, it will be available for pre-order today for $199 and is expected to be released in September.
