Save £40 on the excellent Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch

A great smartwatch with all the bonuses of the great Fitbit app

The Fitbit Versa 2 is an excellent smartwatch. I should know: I had the pleasure of reviewing it for Expert Reviews when it came in earlier this year. It looks stylish, performs well and ties into the excellent Fitbit app.
 
Anyway, it normally sells for £200, but right now on Amazon you can buy the Versa 2 for £159 in black, pink or silver, saving you £41 or exactly 20% on its RRP.
 
So what makes the Fitbit Versa 2 the star of the current Fitbit lineup? Well it takes an already excellent product – the original Versa – and makes a number of worthwhile improvements including a larger screen and improved battery life. The most important improvement, however, is the introduction of an AMOLED screen, meaning you get an always-on display if you want it.
 
It also has Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant built in, though this is to my mind a touch unnecessary. Still, you can ask Alexa things on the go, with responses neatly written on the screen to avoid the faux pas of your watch talking back to you. As I say, a bit pointless.
 
Still, it’s easy to ignore if you want, and it all adds up to a very compelling product. True, there’s no built-in GPS, but it will still piggyback off your phone to accurately track runs. And, crucially, it links in to the excellent Fitbit app with all the brilliant community features that have been built in over the years.
 
As I wrote in my review: “If your phone’s GPS is up to the task, then this is a wonderfully sporty smartwatch. It looks great, it lasts for days and it benefits from the superb Fitbit app. Although I question the need for Alexa on your wrist, the OLED screen makes it a worthy successor to the smartwatch that put Fitbit back on the map.”
 
I ended up giving it a four-star review as, for me, GPS is essential. But if it were the same price you can buy it today, it would probably have earned that extra star and an Expert Reviews recommended badge in the process.
