Fitbit’s Ionic smartwatch was like an experimental debut album, with its blend of promising ideas and rough edges. But now Fitbit has returned to the studio and made a festival-friendly mass seller called the Versa (£199). With a crowd-pleasing design, 50m waterproofing, built-in music storage and that tempting price tag, it’s got a set list to woo both hardcore Fitbit fans and smartwatch dabblers. Both will pleased to find that FitbitOS has been refined too, with a new dashboard to show your vital health stats. In fact, the only thing missing is built-in GPS, with the Versa limited to piggybacking your phone connection. Maybe we’ll eventually get everything we want with a Fitbit Encore.
