Today's TS, Fitbit Versa Light
I purchased the Fitbit Versa during the last TS about 5-6 months ago. It’s a great watch but it’s impossible to change the ban. They made it way too difficult with this particular model. Online- not HSN but the online community such as YouTube and other sites have a ton of complaints and even tutorials about how to change the ban. I’m not sure if the same is true about the Versa light so please research so you know. What I do know is overall sales are down for Fitbit light. It didn’t do as well as the regular Versa. Also, it is rumored that a new Fitbit is about to drop that will include Alexa. I hope they fix the problem with the ban with the new device. I purchased four additional bans and have not been able to use them at all.
I posted about a problem with the Versa lite earlier tonight. If you can find it, I am wondering if the recent update to Versa has given you a problem with errors, even with the clock? I am going to send mine back as a quick fix is not available right now according to some posts on the FB website, I am so disappointed.
Hi Georgiagal, no I haven’t had any technical errors. My problem is a cosmetic one…not being able to change the band. Maybe you got a dud…definitely send it back. If you decide to re-order, I think you’ll be really happy with function. I’m looking forward to the upgraded model coming out.
Yes, ban is band. When I noticed, it was too late to correct. I actually don’t have a problem seeing the screen on the Versa regardless of the type of lighting. I did have a problem with the Fitbit Charge 2. I agree the Versa is so far the best device but they need to do better with being able to swap out the band.
I assume ban is band. Spellcheck gets me too:) The band is easy to change. As for sales both garmin and fitbit stocks are in the red. Yes some activity trackers move better than others. But not enough to move the needle for either company. What I will say about fitbit the app is secure the pebble the activity tracker works great. I had issues with Garmin when I opened the app. First it was a virus warning than ransom ware. I sync with my computer so my antivirus software caught it. So I switched to my older fitbit but it was not waterproof. The fitbit versa lite was a gift. I have many activity trackers from both fitbit and garmin. For me this is the best one . I do not have all the apps just fitness stats. This can be used bare bones or with all the do dads going. I will say if you sync with computer you will need a dongle. Its not included you can pick on up at the fitbit site. I got mine with my first tracker. What I like about the fitbit versa lite my stats are at my fingertips even when I have not synced for the day. The battery life is long. My only con is the same I have with all my trackers. You cannot see it in daylight. So being in the habit of cupping hand to shade it. Still happens
