Fitbit Versa Special Edition with NFC support goes 25 percent off list on Amazon
While it's certainly not unusual to see older gadgets discounted shortly after new models are released, the recently unveiled Fitbit Versa Lite Edition is not actually an upgraded version of last year's regular Versa. As such, deals on the original model weren't exactly guaranteed, especially given Fitbit's newfound success in a fast-growing global wearables market, owed in part to this specific low-cost Apple Watch rival.

All things considered therefore, it's definitely a nice surprise to be able to buy a Special Edition of 2018's Fitbit Versa at a markdown of around 25 percent on Amazon right now. That translates into pretty hefty savings of 60 bucks (give or take a couple) for what was already one of the most affordable feature-packed smartwatches available in the US.

In case you're wondering what makes this device "special", it's the addition of an NFC chip compared to a standard Versa edition, which enables wrist payment support. We're not talking about Google Pay, mind you, but rather's Fitbit proprietary service, fittingly dubbed Fitbit Pay and compatible with credit and debit cards issued by more than 100 US banks.
Ironically, today's deal makes the NFC-enabled Fitbit Versa Special Edition cheaper than a non-Special Versa, as well as only slightly pricier than a Lite Edition that ditches a few key features, including on-device music storage capabilities and a couple of important sensors. The only thing that might stop you from pulling the trigger at this big discount is the somewhat limited choice of love-or-hate bands. 
You can get the marked-down Versa SE with a "Charcoal Woven" or "Lavender Woven" strap, both of which look... pretty unusual for a fitness-first wearable device. Otherwise, there's no disputing the appeal of an inexpensive smartwatch with a decent touchscreen in tow, as well as stellar 4+ day battery life, a swim-proof design, built-in optical heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, and plenty of other tricks up its sleeve guaranteeing a top-notch activity and sleep tracking experience.
