Fitbit unveils its first Alexa-compatible smartwatch, the Fitbit Versa 2

It looks eerily similar to the Apple Watch.

Fitbit, one of the pioneers in wearable technology devices that can do more than just tell time, has unveiled its latest line of smartwatches as it faces strong competition against the Apple Watch, the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch, as well as those from from Fossil and Garmin.

The company’s new device, called the Fitbit Versa 2 looks eerily similar to the Apple Watch with its glass face spreading over the sides of the watch.

In terms of the design, the Versa 2 now only has one button for a more minimalist look and feel, compared to its predecessor, the Fitbit Versa, which has three.

The most striking new feature of the Fitbit Versa 2 is its Amazon Alexa compatibility, which is a new for Fitbit. Versa 2 now comes with built-in Alexa so users can simply press the button and talk to the voice assistant to check the weather, set reminders, get directions to certain locations, take down notes and more.

The Versa 2 also comes equipped with Spotify to let you control your Spotify app via your watch. Apart from Spotify, users in the United States can also download the Pandora app if they prefer Pandora.

With the Versa 2, you can track your heart rate 24/7, record your sleep score, make payments via Fitbit Pay, download the apps that you need, track your steps, distance, calories and floors climbed.

This new smartwatch can stand up to over five days without charge. It is also water resistant so you can wear it in the shower or in the pool. It even tracks how long you’re swimming.

The Fitbit Versa 2 comes in five color variants that all retail at $199.95 and are built in aluminum bodies.

- Black / Carbon

- Stone / Mist Grey

- Petal / Copper Rose

- Bordeaux / Copper Rose

- Emerald / Copper Rose

Fitbit is also offering two special edition variants, the Smoke Woven / Mist Grey variant and the Navy & Pink Woven / Copper Rose variant, that are also aluminum. The limited edition ones cost $229.95.

The watch will be available in stores worldwide beginning September 15, including at Amazon, Best Buy, Kohl's, Macy's, Target, Verizon and Walmart.

Currently, the watches are only available for pre-order on Fitbit’s website, but you can download The Tracker app for free to get notified if the Fitbit Versa 2 becomes available for pre-order on other websites and stores.
