25 square smartwatches before the iWatch, but every one after if copied it. SMH.

That reality distortion field. It doesn't exist until Apple does it.

Sounds like a winner to me. Having another device to charge every day is annoying. I'm glad that Fitbit made the Versa have good battery life.

Looks like a Pebble more than an apple watch to me... Maybe PA's Google search research methods need some fine tuning.

I don't see the Apple watch in that design. I see a Zenwatch. But I guess we see what we want to see....

Forgot to add that in the us you have to buy the versa special edition to have nfc functionality and it is $30 more than the regular edition.

I'm tempted to get this even though I'm not too fond of square/squircle watches simply for that battery life and heart rate monitoring. Salt there are no Android wear watches comparable to this.

The battery lasts 4 days because the watch doesn't so much. If you needed anything other than fitness then this is not the watch for you.

It's just a fitness watch. Not a smartwatch. I have the Fitbit Ionic and there is nothing smart about it. The thing can't even send a message or has any form of assistant and zero speaker feedback. No wonder the battery lasts 4 days.
