FitBit this week released its Versa smartwatch and said new features for the wearable will arrive as soon as next month. A software update to be made available in May will bring quick replies to people who pair their Versa with an Android device. People will be able to create up to five custom quick replies of 60 characters or less and use them in response to text messages, as well as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. FitBit said this feature is not planned for use with iOS devices at this time. The update will also bring female health tracking to the Versa, allowing women to keep track of their monthly cycles. Women should find it easier to manage their cycles and gain a more complete picture of their health and fitness data. These features will also eventually be installed on the older FitBit Ionic smartwatch. The Versa is aimed at the masses thanks to its $200 price point. It includes a color touch screen, accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate monitor, altimeter, light sensor, vibration motor, WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and NFC. These sensors allow the Versa to track 15 different exercise modes, including swimming, assess cardio fitness level, provide personal reminders, track sleep, store and play music, and make mobile payments. Battery life is as good as four days. It is available directly from FitBit and retailers such as Best Buy.
