Among the best fitness-tracking smartwatches, Fitbit Sense and Versa are well known for accurate tracking and the most reliable sleep monitoring. Now the good news is, after a long time, Fitbit recently announced Sense 2 and Versa 4 smartwatches that look almost identical, but their price isn’t.
Fitbit Versa 4 vs Fitbit Sense 2
So, what exactly differentiates this twin? Do they have any significant feature differences that can make them apart? Let’s find out which one is right for you to know your body better.
In terms of design, as we said before, the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 have almost similar designs and dimensions, but they are now lighter and thinner than their predecessors. Most prominently, both watches come with a much-appreciated physical button instead of a haptic one. In addition to usability, the button is slightly moved up the body of the watch for more satiny interaction. Plus, both smartwatches boast a squircle-shaped display in an aluminum case. Anyway, Sense 2 comes with only three color options, whereas Versa 4 is available in four colors, and Fitbit said 24mm straps could be used in both watches.
Let’s talk about their features. So, what exactly can apart these two watches? The answer is their health sensor. You will find all existing and new features on both Versa 4 and Sense 2. Meanwhile, some of the advanced health tracking sensors and features are only available on Sense 2, which is why Sense 2 is a bit expensive compared to Versa 4.
Original Fitbit Sense does an amazing job of health monitoring, and the latest one is even more evolved than ever. As a new feature in addition to Sense 2, it now has an ECG app, which can help you to take AFiB assessments to understand your health condition better. The Sense 2 even comes with an EDA feature, which allows you to identify your stress trigger and alert you if there is anything unusual. Neither of them is available on the Versa 4.
Moreover, both watches now support more than 40 exercises. And with Fitbit premium, you can get your daily readiness score for workout and recovery guidance. Luckily, both watches come with a free six months subscription while you buy them. For deeper insight into your overnight stats, both watches have Fitbit’s new sleep profile. With this feature, Fitbit will generate your monthly sleep quality, so you can analyze your key sleep metrics. You can even improve your sleep quality with personalized guidance.
App Integration and Battery
And, yes, of course, the Fitbit smartwatch now has integrated Google Maps and Google Wallet, isn’t it exciting? Both Versa 4 and Sense 2 support them, and though not available at launch, they will be available by the end of the year. After that, you will be able to make digital payments anywhere you like and can access turn-by-turn directions from your wrist.
In terms of battery life, both Versa 4 and Sense 2 can last for more than 6 days on a single charge, which is not bad compared to other renowned smartwatches.
