How do you tell if my Fitbit is Versa 1 or 2?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To determine if your Fitbit is a Versa 1 or Versa 2, there are a few key features and differences that you can look for:

1. Design: The Versa 1 and Versa 2 have a similar overall design, but there are a few subtle differences. The Versa 2 has a slightly larger AMOLED display compared to the Versa 1, which has an LCD display. The Versa 2 also has a single button on the left side of the watch, whereas the Versa 1 has three buttons on the right side.

2. Mic and Speaker: One of the most significant differences between the Versa 1 and Versa 2 is the inclusion of a microphone and speaker in the Versa 2. This allows you to use Amazon Alexa directly from your watch and also enables voice replies to texts and notifications (for Android users only).

3. Always-On Display: The Versa 2 introduced an “Always-On” display feature, which allows you to keep the time and select information visible on the screen even when the watch is not actively being used. The Versa 1 does not have this feature.

4. Battery Life: The Versa 2 offers slightly better battery life compared to the Versa 1. While both models can last several days on a single charge, the Versa 2 generally has a longer battery life due to more efficient power management.

5. Fitbit Pay: Both the Versa 1 and Versa 2 support Fitbit Pay, which allows you to make contactless payments using your watch. However, it’s worth noting that Fitbit Pay availability varies by region and bank, so not all users may have access to this feature.

To further confirm which model you have, you can check the packaging or the back of the watch itself. The model information is typically printed on the back of the watch, along with other details such as the serial number.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you determine whether your Fitbit is a Versa 1 or Versa 2.
