Fitbit Versa 4 and Sense 2 will reintroduce the side button; here’s a peek

We first announced that Fitbit is developing a pair of new smartwatches back in March. 9to5 Google may now reveal the names of the next Fitbit Versa 4 and Sense 2 wearables, as well as some of their hardware specifications.

The Fitbit Sense 2 and Fitbit Versa 4 are the current product names, said the source. With the latter branding, Fitbit keeps its Versa line going while getting a direct replacement for the Sense.

Currently, the only difference between the Versa 3 and Sense is that the latter, more sophisticated wearable features a stainless steel ring around the display to enable ECG readings. Aside from that, both watches feature an aluminum case with a similar shape.

According to what we’ve observed, Fitbit is maintaining the common design language. The Versa 4, which we consider to be the inferior of the two forthcoming smartwatches, is depicted in the image below. In particular, there is no frame for the ECG and we only see the aluminum shell up to the screen.

Otherwise, it’s a rounded square that appears slightly more pronounced, at least to our eyes. However, it could also be that the image’s angle has curved corners for a more streamlined appearance. We now know that the new goods are compatible with the current bands (as well as the charging wire). In reality, we said in our prior article that the screen resolution (336336) remains the same.

To fix a problem with the Sense/Versa 3-era design, there is one significant hardware change. The solid-state, indented button that vibrates when pressed does not exist on the Versa 4. It actually does stick out and is now on the right edge. It’s unclear whether this will switch back to a tactile button or whether Fitbit is attempting a different solid-state touch-area method.

In particular, when used as the only physical control for going back, long pressing, and double-taps, some people considered the indented button layout to be unreliable. Fitbit’s Versa 2 still has a physical button, and it was previously utilized.

The Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 are presently scheduled to ship in the spring, but things could change.

It was strongly recommended that these devices use Fitbit OS rather than Wear OS in our earlier exploration of the Fitbit app. It makes sense for the company to keep improving its lineup of well-known and favored smartwatches. The Pixel Watch is anticipated to launch shortly, and the firm has previously stated that it would create a premium Wear OS watch. In the near future, there should be three gadgets available for people to pick from, including Google and Fitbit.
