More Tips: Complete Introduction to Fitbit Ionic & Versa

Fitbit Ionic: As the successor to both the Blaze and the Surge, which are discontinued to offer by Fitbit, Ionic comes with built-in GPS aiming to tap into global satellites and provide better accuracy when recording exercises via GLONASS. In the Fitbit app on Ionic, it supports SmartTrack function to recognize user activity automatically. It also has other great features, such as interchangeable bands, water-resistant, new tactile buttons, etc.

Fitbit Versa: When it released in April 2018, the first impression made by Fitbit Versa is that this smartwatch looks strikingly similar to the Apple Watch 3 and Pebble watches with square design and round edges. Retaining most of Ionic's performance, but its price is lower $100 than Ionic. Of course, it is lack of built-in GPS and needs to use connected GPS via smartphone. It's worth mentioning that Fitbit Versa will be able to track women's menstrual cycles.
