Wearables brand Fitbit announced its lightest smartwatch called Versa on Tuesday. Last year, we saw the company make its way into the smartwatch market with the launch of Fitbit Ionic. The new Fitbit Versa smartwatch comes with various features and will compete with brands like Xiaomi and Apple in the wearable segment.
Fitbit has decided to drop the look it has used for Ionic and opt for a more soft appearance with rounded corners and an overall square look. Fitbit Versa smartwatch looks very similar to an Apple Watch. The latest Fitbit smartwatch comes with a price tag of Rs. 19,999. Plus, the Versa Special Edition will come with a price tag of Rs. 21,999.
