These days plenty of people are wearing a fitness tracker — even those who are admittedly not big exercise buffs. A good fitness tracker, like the Fitbit Versa 3, can monitor your workouts, sure, but it also offers a lot more: sleep feedback, guided meditations, and call, text or app notifications.
Originally $230, the Fitbit Versa 3 is on sale at Amazon — for just $160! That's $70 off for a wildly popular fitness tracker that can offer boatloads of health features and smartwatch functions.
Want to save even more? If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
The Fitbit Versa 3 offers a range of health metrics and support — from tracking steps and calories burned to heart rate and sleep. It can also tell you how often you’re moving and remind you to get up and take a walk if you’ve been sitting for too long. You can even use it to track your pool workouts since it's swim-proof and water-resistant up to 50 meters.
It has Bluetooth and built-in GPS so it can track hikes or sync up to your smartphone in order to display call, text or app notifications. You can also access playlists, make calls or ask Alexa questions all right from your wrist. Imagine being able to say “Alexa, turn on my smart lights” on your way home!
Like all Fitbit products, the Versa 3 will work with an iOS, Android or Windows device and its companion app makes it easy to change the watch face on the display, add personal reminders or add credit card details so you can use Fitbit Pay at checkout. Plus, the battery will last up to six days!
Comfortable to wear
The Fitbit Versa 3 comes with two included wristbands: a small size which fits wrists 5.5” to 7.1” in circumference, and a large which fits wrists 7.1” to 8.7” in circumference. You'll also get a small sports band for free!
With over 27,000 Amazon shoppers smitten, can you really go wrong?
"This Fitbit is amazing!" shared a happy shopper. "I use it every single day and it hasn't let me down. The battery life is very good, lasting 6 days before I have to charge it. I love that you can change the clock faces and you can even custom and make your own! My favorite feature on this fitbit would probably have to be the sleep tracking."
Another added: "I have had this fitness tracker for about twenty days and I absolutely love it! It is an excellent health and fitness tracker based on a holistic approach to both your physical and mental wellbeing. It allows you to set realistic goals and it motivates you to attain them one little step at a time."
