The best choice of course will not be the same for everyone. This article was created to make that choice easier for you but the ultimate choice is up to you. Our advice is to compare the price on Amazon for these two watches and then review the handy comparative chart of the watches in this article above. Then ask yourself if the extra features are worth it to you and therefore justify the higher price for the Fitbit Versa 3? Or after further consideration maybe the Fitbit Versa 2 will give you all the basics that you are looking for and require.

A fitness tracker is great if you just want to monitor your vitals while you are exercising. Otherwise, if you need that and also a convenient communication device then choose the smartwatch. Simply put: fitness trackers monitor your health and smartwatches are an extension of your cell phone.
