Save 34% on this great fitness tracker. With six days of battery and sleep tracking, this is one of the best older Fitbits you can get; perfect for those who don't want all the bells and whistles that come with the pricier offerings by Fitbit or equivalent brands.

The Fitbit Versa 2 gives you the ability to track your time in light, deep and REM sleep, as well as heart rate, time asleep and restlessness, and then gives you a sleep score to help you better understand your sleep quality each night. This can be life changing, and is one of the best features that the Fitbit Versa 2 offers (in our opinion).

You can also take it with you into the shower or pool, with water resistance up to 50 meters. This fitness tracker can be your best training buddy, giving you all the analysis you might want and rewarding you for hitting your goals. You'll also be able to stay motivated by connecting with friends, competing in challenges, earning badges and celebrating goal milestones. 

You can connect your new Fitbit Versa 2 to your smartphone and get texts on the go, and even piggyback of your phone's GPS if you're worried about the lack of GPS in the watch itself. 

We concluded that the Fitbit Versa 2 is an ideal fitness tracker for those who want to start getting active but don't want to spend loads on one of the newer models. Metrics like steps, calories and heart rate are important at any point of your fitness journey, but none more so than when starting out, and the Fitbit Versa 2 covers all these bases.
