The Fitbit Versa 3 is currently our favorite Fitbit, one that is on sale on Amazon in the black colorway for $148.19, the best price we’ve seen yet for the $229.99 wearable. While a new model of the Versa is likely on the horizon, it likely won’t be a drastic upgrade, and the Versa 3 still boasts many of the features we’ve come to expect in a budget-friendly fitness tracker, including continuous heart rate monitoring and SpO2 sensors. In addition to built-in Google Assitant and Amazon Alexa functionality, the waterproof, GPS-enabled fitness tracker includes heart-rate monitoring and can last for up to six days on a single charge.
