Like the Sense, the Versa 3 has a curved square face with metal and glass finishing. But it doesn’t have as many sensors.

Just like the Sense, its battery life is said to last six days and both devices use the same magnetic charger that promises to charge a full day’s worth of juice in 12 minutes.

Fitbit puts battery life of the Inspire 2 at 10 days — making it the longest across its entire product portfolio, according to the company. This fitness tracker still has sleep tracking and heart-rate monitoring around the clock.
