Not the cheapest the Fitbit Versa has ever been, but the bundle makes it worthwhile

Eight days into 2019: how’s your fitness resolution going? If the answer is “well...”, then you may want to consider this pretty impressive Fitbit Versa deal currently available at Currys.
 
For £149, you get the Fitbit Versa in a choice of black, red, pink or silver, which is a good price for a device that usually retails for £199. But it’s the extras that really push this over the edge: a two-week gym membership for you and a friend, as well as three months of Deezer Premium.
 
The gym membership is available at The Gym group, which has over 100 locations around the UK. It’s probably worth checking the website to see where your local branch is, but suffice it to say there’s likely one not too far away from you. There doesn’t seem to be a full list of prices, but a quick spot check of locations shows monthly memberships going from £15.99 per month in Barnsley up to £28.99 per month in Islington.  
 
Then there’s a bundled three months’ subscription to Deezer Premium. Deezer, if you’re not aware, is a streaming music service that’s a rival to Spotify and Apple Music. Like its rivals, it usually costs £9.99 per month. There’s a Deezer app on the watch, meaning you can actually store tracks locally with your membership, which is quite a nice little extra.
 
So while the Fitbit Versa may not be the cheapest it’s ever been (it was available for £140 in the Boxing Day sales, but those prices have long gone), the added extras make it very good value indeed. With the cost of the watch, the Deezer account and the cheapest gym membership pro rata, it comes to £186.96. If the Islington branch of The Gym happens to be your local, it comes to £193.46.

Either way, it’s below the RRP, and the Fitbit Versa is a fine fitness tracker in its own right. As Ed wrote in his review: “it looks and feels better than any other smartwatch that I’ve tested under £200, it’s considerably lighter and less bulky than all of its rivals, and then there’s the outstanding battery life.”
 
There is a drawback, though: there’s no built-in GPS. The Fitbit Versa can still track your runs and cycle rides, but it’s relying on the GPS of your phone, which can A) be patchy and B) means you need to take your phone with you. If that isn’t a deal breaker for you, then this Fitbit Versa deal looks like an absolute steal to me.
