You want to get a smart watch from Fitbit, but you can not decide between the Fitbit Versa Lite and the Fitbit Versa? We'll show you where the differences between the two smart watches are, which features are missing in the Lite model and how this is reflected in the price.
The first impression counts: Design & Display
The two Fitbit Versa models look confusingly similar, except for the different color variants, the smartwatches differ only in one detail: The Fitbit Versa has three buttons (one on the left and two on the right), while the Lite model only has a button on the left side.
What are nits?
Nit describes the luminance – ie the luminous intensity per square meter (cd / m²) – for example of computer screens and LED video walls. Or to put it simply: It describes how much light the display sends to your eyes through a certain path. On average, the values are in the lower to middle four-digit range.
The display measures 34 millimeters diagonally for both smartwatches and has a resolution of 300 x 300 pixels. The clocks weigh 38 grams each, their case is very thin at 1.12 centimeters. So you do not always hang anywhere and can wear the watch at night too.
The touchscreen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and thus extremely robust, scratches have a tough game. The brightness is up to 1,000 nits.
What features are missing on the Fitbit Versa Lite?
With the Fitbit Versa Lite you can not pay without contact.
